I called dealers around my area and they have zero information on ordering and said they probably won't know until the end of the month, but I see some posts on here of people already having ordered. What's going on? I would think dealers would be on the same page here?

You can “Reserve” now. Holding your spot in line.
you can’t Officially order until later. A month or so. And that’s when you work out financing and all that.

you can COMPLETELY change your reservation any time all the way up to till you sign on the line. And you won’t loose your place in the production line

That is my understanding, but some people in this forum have already placed orders for specific specs with $1,000 deposits.

I called a couple of dealers around me and they said the same, but then I got in touch with Tom from Chapman Ford of Horsham and he placed the order with the 3% discount, after a few minutes I got an e-mail from Ford confirming.

I think they just don't know what they are doing.

Wonder if he has some inside info that's letting him put orders through. Shame he's 12 hours away.

I visited my dealer in person yesterday and submitted a pre-order. You are definitely able to submit orders now, unfortunately, it looks like some dealerships around the country are misinformed and/or uninformed.

I've thrown in the "I know other dealers are submitting orders based upon a Maverick forum" in my emails to three dealers in my area so we'll see if they play ball or if I need to look elsewhere.

I imagine my order has technically not been submitted by the dealer because I have yet to receive the email confirmation from Ford.

Just out of curiosity re those who have already ordered (and are planning to finance it), did your dealer require you to complete a credit app to do the order?

No credit app for me, but they had me do a generic contract so they could place an order. Mine told me it was needed to show a real person wanted the truck and it was not being ordered for dealer stock.

But I still have not received the confirmation letter some here have gotten.

That makes more sense than the credit app...I'm not going to be pressured into having my credit run when I have no idea when the truck will be built and, thus, what Ford Credit will be offering. So, I'm waiting to hear back from the dealer as to my questions on that front.

Oh COVID, you make buying a car much easier, as I don't have to do the face-to-face and the walk to the manager's office.
