I placed my order on 3/20 and the dealer accepted shortly thereafter. However, no news since then. I checked with the dealer, and even though the "place order" shows as "Ready," they confirmed there aren't any issues and that everything is on track.

I know there have been some delays due to chip shortages and whatnot, but have others had this experience as well? How long has it taken you to get a production date?

Not sure for recent orders but it has typically taken 2-3 months to receive a production date. There are still 2020 orders awaiting dates.

Don't know whether you will fair any better where you are but my car was built 9 Dec, put on a ship 1 March and it arrived in Antwerp 31 March. My Ford account still says in production

I placed my order in February, just about a month before yours, and am in the same situation.

I wonder what Ford's strategy is. Hard to understand why there would be 2020 orders not scheduled and orders from February 2021 are. I think I even saw a post that has a March order date that is scheduled for production.

My order date was 2/15 and I just received a week of May 23rd build date last Friday (4/2).
Patience may be a virtue, but it sure is difficult when you're waiting for your stallion.

*raises hand* Ordered on 3/15, got an email on the 25th for a production date 5/9.

I've mentioned this in another thread, but here's what my dealer told me: SoCal area takes anywhere from 1-6 weeks from order date to production date. Higher volume dealers seem to have quicker order fulfillment.
