Envious of everyone getting build dates!

 

Anyone have a '22 GT order with a VIN and date yet? Our order went in back in mid-June but haven't heard a peep since. Checked with the dealer after seeing a bunch of folks get scheduled but they said no update yet unfortunately.

If you have your order number and VIN number, you can go to the Lincoln vehicle order tracking site to check the status.  Your dealer can provide the order number and VIN number and perhaps even tell you if your vehicle has been scheduled.

 

I ordered a Corsair Grand Touring on July 5.  According to my dealer it is to be built the week of September 6.  The website shows my order has been secured and shows the VIN but it doesn't show any other status.  My understanding is it won't update until just prior to the build.

Unfortunately no VIN has been assigned or build week scheduled yet, so the tracking link doesn't help at the moment. Thanks for the link though, I've saved that for once I do get a VIN!

I ordered mine in June, dealer says the production date is in August. The Lincoln tracking site shows the same thing for me as you said.

Anyone get any updates about production. Okay was told last month that the truck would go into production this week but my dealer is now completely quiet with no updates. 
 

I did have the order number and vin but not able to track on Lincoln site since in Canada.

Next week should be the first week of '22 production. If you're order is scheduled for next week I think your dealer should have info on being scheduled to a specific day early next week.

Thank you!

 

Any thoughts to timeline from production date to delivery at dealer? Located in Toronto.

Not sure on that one, in general after the vehicle is produced it'll get loaded on to a rail car then the time it takes to get to your dealer is just a matter of train transit time plus vehicle carrier availability from the terminal to your dealer.

 

Aviators are produced in Chicago, so it'll be train time from Chicago to Toronto. Maybe someone else who has had a vehicle delivered to Toronto area can chime in with a better time estimate 😀.

I have a 2022 Aviator Reserve with order accepted 5/8. It was scheduled for production week of 10/4  and changed to 9/6. Today I used the track my vehicle from the email I received.  It now says your vehicle is in production at one of our plants and says use link to see sticker. The sticker is not available yet but hopefully the car is either in production or getting close

That's awesome, congrats! That sticker should be available soon, I think they usually show up either during or right after production.

We ordered our BL Aviator mid-June and also got an update for production “scheduled to day” of Sept 9th.  Had the same issue where the window sticker isn’t available yet even though the site says to check it out.  
 

Our salesman said that the window sticker does not usually become available until just after the vehicle is completed.

Window sticker for mine is up!  Scheduled for 9/6.  May not tell the wife and just surprise her at this point.

Of course the same day I post that my window sticker hasn’t posted yet - it posted!  
 

Just went to hit refresh after dinner and it was there.  After some googling, I believe the build date is 8/31.  According to some sites, you can see the build date in the bottom center box with “SPECIAL ORDER” as the last 6 digits listed. 
 

I'm going to the dealer on Friday to get service on my Edge and will check to see if the Lincoln dealer system shows any updated dates.

Hi aerodrum. Just as an FYI - Build dates are not listed on the window sticker. The dates listed on the sticker are simply various administrative dates of no importance to the prospective owner.

 

Generally, (pre-pandemic), if a sticker just became available last night, the vehicle would normally be produced in the following 2-10 days. But again, that was pre-pandemic, so "normal" is still not normal yet.

 

Good luck.

Actually I believe the “Blend” number at the top of the sticker shows your build date….see F150 link here.

I was kind of wondering that myself with the blend number as that would line up with my "expected" build date of 9/6/21, which would be labor day....  Hm wonder if that will get bumped a day or 2 heh.

I also received my sticker, website still has the build week of 9/6 if that holds true the next hurdle will be waiting for delivery. Mine says Convoy so probably another 3 or 4 weeks from Chicago to Florida.

I just received my sticker as well. Blend date is 9/6. Guessing shipping is by truck.   Says Convoy?

Thanks!  Ultimately, it’ll show up when it shows up.  But it’s still fun playing guessing games until keys are in hand 😁

I was under the impression that the "Blend" number was your scheduled build date as well. I'm sure they won't regenerate a window sticker if something happens last minute and the build gets pushed, but I think that at least when the sticker is generated that was the anticipated build date.

 

Either way stoked to see everyone getting their window stickers and '22s finally getting built! Can't wait to see some real life pics when they start landing in driveways, and for our order to move out of unscheduled/clean status (hopefully soon so I can join the window sticker party lol).

Wooo finally received a VIN and confirmation on build week courtesy of cyberdman in the order tracking subforum. We're scheduled for week of 10/25 currently.

 

Also for those interested in overall timeline now that I can use the order tracking site with our VIN I can see a little more detail, including the fact that the order was in fact submitted on June 16. This was immediately after Ford notified my dealer that the '21 order we had in would be cancelled and to re-order as a '22.  However I also know that the order verification (copy of license) was not done until July 30, so not sure how that may have affected order processing/scheduling. Either way, stoked to finally have a date and some movement on the order!

Order tracking for my 2022 Aviator Reserve popped up estimated delivery date today of 10/8. Production date was scheduled for 9/6. Shows no progress for production but dealer says tracking system says Stage 2 production. Order accepted 5/8 and originally scheduled for 10/4. Changed to production for week of 9/6. Progress!

I think he's referring to the different stages of the order. Mine is also scheduled to be built this week but after waiting 6 months and delay after delay I'm not confident.

Not sure what dealer meant.  Just happy to see status from tracking says being built in one of our factories.  Also glad to see them add an estimated delivery date today.  Dealer shows tracking system shows shipping between 10/2 and 10/8.

I ordered my 2022 Aviator on March 30. Since then, I have been tracking order status to the best of my ability and with the assistance of cyberdman here at Blue Oval Forums. According to cyberdman's most recent order-status update, "It says it was scheduled to start production on 09/07, but that is it, nothing more yet.  It doesn't say it was started even."

 

This morning, I checked status online and discovered that expected delivery is now October 9, but there's still no indication this Aviator has been produced. My situation is similar to that of aviator47 in the post above. Perhaps there's a communications glitch between the Chicago Assembly Plant and the Lincoln order-status system?

 

FWIW, here's a summary of my order status and timeline thus far:

 

30-Mar-2021:  Order confirmed via e-mail from Lincoln
30-Jun-2021:  In Order Processing - Unscheduled - Clean Mar-30-2021, 13:58 EDT
26-Jul-2021:  Confirmed no change in status
29-Jul-2021:  Scheduled for production week of 27-Sep-2021 (e-mail from Lincoln)
29-Jul-2021:  Assigned VIN:  5LM5J7XC4NGLxxxxx
05-Aug-2021:  Production week changed to week of 06-Sep-2021 (e-mail from Lincoln)
01-Sep-2021:  Window sticker generated
01-Sep-2021:  Blend date assigned; production scheduled for 07-Sep-2021
10-Sep-2021:  Order status now indicates expected delivery on 09-Oct-2021
