Bring some Krispy Kremes to your sales guy. He is in for a very long and busy day and weekend.got a email from crossroads ford raleigh nc saying ordering begins tomorrow the 15th and they had 7 sales guys to take the orders . did i want to make a reservation. i would but all orders include a $500 paint protection they say comes on all vehicles. they have no control over that. funny
that leith ford in wendell can get then without it. hmmmmm!!! i will bet in wendell tomorow at 8:45
xlt cactus grey , hitch and full size tire $25k
Thanks for the info and explanation on where it came from! Fingers crossed a whole bunch of us will be able to get our orders in, especially the folks who had 22's that got pushed to 23.... I feel for you, fingers crossed it's better this time around.It was posted on FMCDealer on 9/13/2022, in the sales information - FMCDealer is a Ford website that dealers have access to and where we get communication from FMC. I work in the service dept at my dealer but watch for all Maverick related communications...
P.S. There is also another communication for the dealers about how to do the rollover for MY2022 orders that were not produced - if your dealer says they know nothing, tell them check on FMCDealer...
There is no disadvantage to you at all.Is there a disadvantage to submitting multiple orders through different dealerships?
Not exactly....dealer discretion will establish Priority codes and that can be used for 22 and 23 with no difference. In other words there is no line of old before new ....and everyone gets bundled togther with the dealer setting the priority..Salesguy asked me to stop-by Friday morning. He states 22 orders will have priority with Ford into 23 MY...
Ford always makes things confusing for EVERYONE.
I think the order guides should appear in the morning so dealers should be able to put orders together, they just won't be able to submit them until later in the afternoon. They are probably just asking people to come in and fill out an order sheet and then they will upload it later. I agree its probably best to wait until Friday morning when everything will be up and running....theoretically.Morning of the 15th (any time zone)? No.
Afternoon/evening of the 15th (Pacific Time)? Maybe.
Evening Pacific Time/wee hours of the night into the 16th? Probably.
All dealers get the same information. But who gets it at the dealership and what they do with it varies. Do they even check their email? Who knows. Does it go to the email address of the manager that left 4 years ago? Who knows. Does the dealership live in their own little world that doesn't care to know anything from outside? Who knows.Why do some dealers have communication from Ford and others (apparently) don't???
I emailed Ed Simpson at Chapman Philly this morning telling him about everything Tim detailed on Ordering tomorrow and this was his reply.
Hi Chris nothing official from Ford in my inbox yet. It should be tomorrow from the latest news and of course my 2022 orders are getting priority over the new ones. I am crossing my fingers the order guide and pricing arrives on time. It was delayed over an hour after the banks opened for the F-150. I will be reaching out to everyone in the order I received the original request.
