2022 Lincoln Aviator Production Information

Recommended Posts

We've recently been notified by our dealer that the 2021 Aviator Reserve that we had on order (ordered 6 weeks ago) has been moved to a 2022 production model due to "allocation issues".  We just received an updated order acknowledgement form that puts our PRIORITY:  10.  Any idea how long that takes to make once production starts?   Days?  Weeks?  Months?

 

Based on my past Ford order experiences...

 

You order is still in the order bank (system) waiting to be previewed & scheduled, with other 2021s that have apparently slipped, and all 2022s that have been ordered since 3/15/21.

 

Hopefully they start scheduling on 4/15, for the build week of 6/1.  This process continues each week, usually. (schedule on 4/22 for build week 6/8, etc.)

 

Once you order gets scheduled, your dealer will give you your build week date.  About a week before your build week, you will get a specific build day/date and your Window Sticker will be generated.

 

As others have stated, most dealers give the highest priority 10 to customer orders, vs dealer stock orders.  ( I may be wrong, but smaller volume dealers have allocations issues on popular/scarce models; they cannot get my orders picked-up/scheduled timely.  I had the same issue on a 19 SHO that got picked up 2 months later, during the final cleanup-week, then build 2 months after that)

 

There should not be much of a shutdown between MY 21 & 22, as there are very minor changes. 21s are being built the week of 5/24 and the plant should be off Monday 5/31 Memorial Day, then on Tue 6/1, they are scheduled to start 22 production. (Which is common; they just start using stickers on the door jamb with the new year)

The 21 Explorers have minor changes (such as new King Ranch model) for their 6/1 "Job 3" update/switchover too (Still model year 2021; built at same plant.  I wonder why?)  So, therefore I believe likely no hold ups for quality like you would have for an all-new model (Ranger) or a major redesign (F-150). (Which is fresh on everyone's mind)

 

Chip shortage is likely biggest delay risk.  I believe they would shut down the plant for a week, if out of chips/modules.  

 

There is a scheduled shut down week of 7/5 (possibly 7/12 too?) at Chicago Assembly.  This will add time if you don't get scheduled June.

 

I takes ~1 day to build your vehicle.  Then shipping is a product of your distance to Chicago. Railroad adds more shipping time.

 

I am sure there are many here that can correct any points I am way off on.  (I am in a 17 Explorer Limited, about to get in to the 22 Aviator order sweepstakes later this week; was holding out (hoping) for Sync-4, oh' well) 

 

Good Luck!

I placed my order on 4/12 and received an email the same day from Lincoln informing me that my order has been confirmed "Your vehicle order is one of the early orders for the 2022 Lincoln Aviator Reserve and, because we are building this vehicle just for you, we want to share a bit more on our production process as it may affect your delivery time."

My dealer says July at the earliest.
