Anybody have an idea of what they are deleting in the Multi-Contour seats 💺?

 

Will Ford substitute a different seat entirely?

(ie) put in a Lariat seat instead?

My truck is scheduled for next week… what’s that mean? 
 

 

Order scheduling does not have anything to do with plant operations or vehicle production.

From what I understand, the seats are the same, they just don’t have the message bladders.

Not real that big of a bump as the factory is closed the week of July 4th and the week of July 11th.  Sorry to hear about it.

That sucks! I was hoping to get scheduled soon, and I  have a vacation starting the first of August. If you’re pushed back to July 18, my vacation’s screwed.

I ordered a 350 on 6/24/21. It was scheduled for 6/27 and also flipped to 7/18.  Glad I ordered another that is on the way for delivery.

Well I am definitely not getting in line for another F’ing from Ford after this round. I will take my chances with another manufacturer. At least GM has said that for the options they are deleting they will retrofit at their expense when the parts become available in lieu of we are sorry but not my fault. 

 

I have a friend that was going to order a new Denali, they told him year and a half......

My truck reached its rail destination yesterday and the car is showing empty. Is there anyway to find out when it will be picked up by a hauler? Would the sales manager have this information or is it just a hurry up and wait kind of thing?

I believe it’s a hurry up and wait thing.  I haven’t talked to my sales manager, so I don’t even know if I’m off the ramp in Kentucky. Is the VVR the only source to get rail car information (car # for tracking)?

May as well accept the business decision Ford made. No amount of tantrum is going to change it.

The same seat, they just don’t include the bladders.  The credit for $300 is the same amount that the parts cost.

After the vehicle is unloaded from the rail car, it's transferred to the transport company which has the vehicle status information in advance. It's then up to the transport company's dispatch department to determine when the vehicle is assigned to a car carrier load for delivery to the dealership depending on equipment and staff availability, load configuration and destination. The transport companies have software programs that assist them in configuring the car carrier load. Certain vehicles can only be loaded in specific locations on a carrier and loads often include vehicles from more than one manufacturer. There are a lot of transportation delays nationwide for both rail operations and vehicle delivery from the final rail ramp to the dealerships.

 

Your sales manager can contact the transport company's dispatch department at the ramp for vehicle delivery status.

So if it is a semi conductor issue why not build the with the bladders in them for the massage aspect of the seat and just have the dealer install the chip/semi conductor  later?

 

Not all supply chain issues are semi-conductor related.  The three main items causing SD delays are Fifth wheel prep, Spray in bed-liner, and Adaptive Steering.  The first two definitely do not have semi-conductor chips and for the last one we assume it is caused by chips but we don't really know.   I think many (maybe most) of the supply chain issues are labor related.  Look at the delays we are seeing with just getting the built trucks to the dealerships because the trucks sit waiting to be picked up by transporters.  The same thing is happening with the parts and materials going from point A to point B which is often from overseas to the US.

The credit should be for the amount charged to the customer, not the manufacturer's cost.   Because the massage/lumbar feature is not really itemized we will never know if the $300 is really a full refund.

I thought the multi-contour seats had a longer seat bottom profile than the non-MC seats?  I know there are more bladders, but I thought the shape was different too since I've heard folks say something about the seat bottom being too long for them in some cases.

Yeah, My new 2022 F350 King Ranch massaging seat bottom cushions hit the back of my legs and I hate it, oddly enough my 2017 Platinum F350 with massaging seats didn't hit the backs of my legs right behind my knee,  I went back to dealer a few days after taking delivery to double check, sure enough my Platinum seat bottoms cleared the back of my left knee by a few inches.  When driving, my most comfortable position for my left leg is knee bent and lower leg almost vertical, seat all the way back on track.  My legs are long for my height, I'm only 5'-7".  Either Ford changed the design of all massaging seat bottoms or the King Ranch bottoms are longer, I have not sat in a 2022 Platinum so I don't have a reference measurement. I don't even like massaging seats.  T be honest, my 2017 was more pleasurable to drive, but most of the improvements, especially to the engine I like.  I'm still getting used to 10 speed over six speed, I'm in 3rd gear at 15mph, takeoff performance is crappy compared to my 2017.  I want my adaptive steering back, they can have the massaging seats and the new seat bottoms but the 12" screen, Sync 4, headlight designs and a few other improvements I'm happy with.  I didn't like them dropping Ruby Red, hood liner and hood light.  Charge more and get less, frigging penny pinching bean counters making stupid deletes.  Labor and pensions from unions is where a lot of their rising expenses are from.  MSRP went up $1295 twice while my truck was being built, my effective salary went down due to inflation, double whammy.  Sorry for the rant...

I have some summer camping trips planned too that I felt like were going to be ruined by not getting my truck.  In the end I decided I wasn’t going to let Ford ruin it for me.  I was able to rent a 3/4 ton pickup from Enterprise for $450/week (plus taxes).  Yeah it sucks, but renting it for 2-weeks a month in June and July to get me through the summer is still less than the truck payments will be haha. I’m hoping to have my truck by the July vacations since I’m finally in production but who knows.

Well, it was bound to happen,  the dreaded production date adjustment email.

  • 14 Feb - ordered
  • 16 Feb - confirmed 
  • 12 May - scheduled 27 June
  • 20 May - pushed to 18 July

On the bright side, guess that gives me time to return from international business travel.

The bedliner and 5th wheel are kind of labor related, but more due to the way trucks are being ordered now versus how they were in the past. Before all of these retail orders, dealers would have bedliners and 5th wheel kits installed locally instead of ordering them already equipped because it was quicker/cheaper to get them that way. Now that everything is being custom ordered, people are ordering the trucks with bedliners and 5th wheel, which means they have to get put on before they are shipped out. The facilities that previously had enough throughput to complete all of the bedliners and 5th wheel kits for all of the stock orders now do not have enough throughput for the sheer number that are being ordered. The physical facilities are not built to handle the number of trucks being ordered with those options. They could hire more people, but there's no room for extra people with the current facilities.
