Your dealer is undoubtedly correct that your truck is still at the plant. But they should also have explained it's due to waiting for EPA certification for the hybrid. Dealers seem to be a big part of the communication problem, withholding information and in some cases spreading misinformation.
I think this type of question can benefit someone who has no previous experience with certain options. For example, I've never owned a vehicle with the features of the Copilot 360 package, so it's useful to hear whether people who have it think it's worth it.
Specific questions would be better...
I'm thinking of changing from XLT to Lariat. I'm having trouble deciding on the standard Lariat wheels or the optional "black painted" wheels. The optional wheels have machined faces rather than being all black like the FX4 wheels. Do I have it right that the two pics below are the standard...
Did you receive the confirmation email from Ford of your order? If so you're OK. Most hybrid orders are going pretty slow so it's not surprising for an August hybrid order not to have a build date yet. Production has been limited on hybrids even though hybrid orders have outpaced Ecoboost...
Oh boy. I realize change can be more difficult later in life but failure to research what features are available on the truck is on you. i'm a boomer and while I get why some might still want a CD player I never use them any more. I like using Waze and Google Maps with Android auto.
Not true where I live. Nearly everyone has tint because it helps keep vehicles cooler in the summer. Only extra dark (illegal) tint on the front side windows or tinted windshields attract that kind of attention.
You must not have read anything in this forum before posting. Look at the threads regarding scheduling emails to get an idea how long orders are taking. There isn't much consistency. There are also some threads posted by people who have received their Ecoboost Mavericks.
I'm just curious if there's any discernable difference among dealers. If you ordered a hybrid with a DFW dealer, do you have a scheduled build date? When did you order and what dealer?
My answer is no. I ordered 8/21 with Sam Pack Carrollton.
This is a noticeable increase from prior weeks, so the hope is these numbers will continue to increase rather than remaining constant per week going forward. By the way, 14 was just the number ordered in June, and there were two more posts of hybrids scheduled after I made my comment.
