Why would you think that? I would guess you are 99.9% wrong. Model years generally change in late Fall or Early Winter, not in the Spring.
Don’t most manufacturers do changeovers from one model year to another in the summer? If not then, when do they do so? I’m just used to new models arriving in the fall, that’s all. Maybe that’s too old school. Again, it was just a statement and a guess.

We will see. I ordered from Long McArthur because they are local to me July 15. Xlt ecoboost fx4 luxury package with sliding rear window. They have promoted themselves so much online that I keep getting passed over. I never received an email from Ford about my order being accepted and have voiced it several times. I get no answer. Then The dealer tells everyone they will ship for free and have more allocations. People jump me. I am borrowing a vehicle from a family member and when I ordered in July, I was told October. I don’t trust dealerships to begin with, but thought with one that is near me in Kansas that I would be taken care of. The verdict is still out, but I have not been impressed.

I watched @fordvideoguy latest video during which he touched on some of questions folks have raised on this thread. I'll try to paraphrase what I can remember, but do not hold me as exact quote. I do suggest that you watch his video yourself to get exactly what he said. Basically, he said as far scheduling Ford has a complex means that they use, but it comes down to each Region getting looked at for oldest orders, any restraints on that order (tonneau, mud flaps etc) if there are then the order is passed over to the next one. Another hold is the number of allocations that dealership has available during that round of scheduling. With the OKTB for hybrids (🦄 ) coming soon you can expect more hybrids getting scheduled. Ford has been slow in scheduling them because they didn't want to fill the desert up with trucks (I think also chips, parts played into this too). Ford cutoff orders of hybrids because they can only make so many in the time allocated for MY22. Also if a dealership has allocations, but no retail orders that can get built then stock orders are scheduled, which could explain why ecoboost Mavericks are showing up at some dealerships. Naturally Ford wants to get everything built for MY22 because dragging it out only causes more headaches. Personally, unless you must have your Maverick yesterday I wouldn't change or drop anything off your order because as long as supplies don't become an issue Mavericks should really start coming out of the factory by the thousands! Every MY22 should be built by May so that's only 6 months from now. When you think back Mavericks were only started being built in late August, so the usual growing pain have taken place and supply issues tackled now production should really ramp up! Again I suggest watching @fordvideoguy to get the information straight from Maverick Jesus! 😆
Lastly, before anyone starts banging their keyboards claiming I'm Ford fan boy, just know that I ordered my Maverick hybrid 🦄 XLT (Lux -360) July 5th and I'm still waiting for a build date. I'm also extremely disappointed in Ford's overall lack of communication with Maverick customers! They could've done a much better job explaining the reasons behind why the OKTB on the hybrid has taken so long! Someday we'll find out, but for now a $50 FITS kit isn't an explanation! If things work out right this will be the last truck I buy for a lot of years!

With 5 weeks of production dates coming, how many vehicles would that equal and how many of the back orders would that get them caught to or thru? Will scheduling clear those guys up (June and July orders) and get them to September orders?

So maybe they can get 20,000 Maverick's done in January if we're lucky? Where does that put me, like June delivery?
When did you order?

If I don’t get scheduled, with 8 weeks of priority 2, for a AWD FX4 Tow 2.0, I’m never getting on this forum again. Then again I’m pretty sure I said that a month ago and here we are.
Next week the Mavericks will get a lot of scheduling from November allocations. The week after will likely be a clean up week and the week following should start scheduling for February using December allocations. I bet you will get a build date in one of those weeks.

I am scheduled for 12/6. Have I been postponed?
We will see. I ordered from Long McArthur because they are local to me July 15. Xlt ecoboost fx4 luxury package with sliding rear window. They have promoted themselves so much online that I keep getting passed over. I never received an email from Ford about my order being accepted and have voiced it several times. I get no answer.

I have been very lucky, I ordered my EB XLT lux all packages from a Wichita dealer on 9/22, got the vin# 9/23 and an 11/15 build week. I have been moved back three times to my current build week of 12/6, but so far I haven’t been moved back again. Fingers crossed!

I'm confused here a lot of people are excited about this schedule.... Don't people understand that the maverick isn't being scheduled for production until 2022.... SO that means my Maverick could hit my dealership by the end of January, but more like Feb or March.
When many of us have been waiting since June/July, merely being scheduled at all is a big deal.

Yep still waiting on my 7/19 hybrid order. Mine will probably take longer due to the lariat with luxury package.
