Given that on here is has been said that there is a OKTB date of 23 November I can't see that there will be any deliveries before then. I think that Ford will ship FE's to dealers before this date so they can check/PDI customers cars to get them ready for delivery. This will then take place on 23 November country wide. It will be the closest they get to a 'launch'

My theory, if I am allowed to enter, is that the first FE will be handed over at 0001 23 November 2020. I think that all dealers will be in competition with each other to deliver the 'first' so I expect them to open early to accomplish this.
Yep, anyone can enter their guess on the arrival date of this first First Edition to a participant here.

I am still hopeful Ford will beat that date, they almost have to make all the Premium Model deliveries to NA promised in 2020.

The number of dealer demo’s and these NA FE’s is very small --- approximately one demo per dealer and less than one FE per dealer to a huge geographical area, all of North America.

Logically, they would ship together and save a lot of delivery costs --- cheaper to drop off two at a dealer than one at a time.

And it’s not likely the dealers will be using these demos to make a bunch of sales this November that can’t be delivered until 2022.

These guesses aren't allowing for snags. The regulations inspections can drag, the transport, the weather, the virus, the port, not to mention last minute line problems or quality issues found prior to transport. It's tight even for 12/31/20! I've been in Ford's process before on a new model roll out and "s" often happens coming out of Mexico.

There is always one party pooper. We are just having a bit of fun to fill the waiting time and to stop us going crazy.

Texas/California are major rail entry points from Mexico. Those two states have the advantage...

I agree --- that is likely where the first FE will be delivered.
I live way to far North, the train will make a lot of stops / drops before it gets up here --- San Antonio, Austin, Dallas, KC and Omaha.

November 11, 2020 at 10am CST. 2 weeks after production starts for a first delivery batch. 2 days to transport. Is that too optimistic?

The two day transport to even a South Texas dealer is pretty optimistic, but the rest looks good.
