The dealership delivery dates (ETA - Estimated Time of Arrival) are provided by Ford and can't be changed by the dealership.

I have an Retail order date of May 4,2021 for a 2022 Grand Touring.  The order has Priority Code 10 and an Order Code 4780.  The dealer has no information on the scheduling of production for this vehicle.  Is there any way to find out anything more concerning its scheduling?

I've spoken to 3 dealers in North Jersey/NYC area.

 

1) No Aviator production at all due to chip shortage

2) Sep/Oct timeframe

3) Oct/Nov timeframe

 

I am not sure how they expect to make sales if they can't even give a date. Lastly, dealer #1 said Lincoln is covering the 1st payment but wasn't real clear on conditions.

They can’t give you dates that they don’t know.  If you try to order furniture or appliances they tell you to expect at least a 6 month wait.  They have to prioritize whatever chips they do get.

Other manufacturers are able to give dates. But the real issue is the different 'date' depending on who I talk to.

Other mfrs didn’t have a chip factory fire,  Ford can’t give a date at this point so what you’re getting is just each dealer’s guess,  If you want a date then I’d say expect to wait 6 months.

Spoke to a sales manager/associate at #1 above and it's 4 months for a 2022. So, another date. :)

It is certainly a moving target this year across Ford, which is definitely not normal.  Normally, your order would be scheduled in a week or two, for a build week 6-8 weeks later.

 

I believe they are still prioritizing customer (retail) orders over dealer inventory (stock) orders.

Looks like scheduling started a couple days early. Saw someone had an Early September build date and received their Vin #. I’ll be happy to get my official notice for my wife’s car. She is driving me crazy, lol.

Any changes to a scheduled order are sent to the plant for approval with confirmation or rejection within 48 hours. Accepted changes normally delay the scheduled production by a week but with the microchip shortage, supplier issues and interrupted plant schedules the revised production week could be delayed longer than a week.

Just received email from Lincoln for my 2022 Aviator Reserve.  Production schedule date is week of October 4th.  They included a VIN number and a tracking link.  Originally accepted order May 8th.

Same for me. Being the first time every ordering a car, if build week is Sept 20, what should I expect from that week until it's at the dealer in terms of timing?
