Anyone having issues with December 2020 build dates still being in production?

I had a "week of 12/14/20" scheduled build date and per the VIN tracker and numerous calls to the Ford Marketing line, my BS is still "In production". Trying to gauge if others in this timeframe are experiencing similar production times. I feel like 4 weeks is pretty long for car production.

My dealer has reached out to their Ford reps and all they are saying the same thing - "In Production"

Details on my order:
Bronco Sport Outer Banks Trim
Area 51 exterior color
Ebony/Roast interior
11/13 order date

No problem here. Built 12/16. Ford originally said arrival at the dealer between 1/30 and 2/5 but it actually arrived Friday evening. I pick it up tomorrow. So scheduled for production 12/11, built 12/16 and arrived 1/8. (and ordered 8/19)

Mine was built 12/15 shipped 12/16 and last check it was an hour away from me at the truck transport lot. Dealer said it should be here this week. Date changed on the bottom of my window sticker yesterday so I'm hoping that means it's either loaded on a truck or in route to the dealer.

Same here. I’ve been going crazy. I had the same scheduled build date. I got my vin on the 23rd. It has been in production since I got my vin. I have gotten info that there they are doing a lot of QA holds and that there is an industry wide shortage of capacitors that has caused multiple factories to stop production. See some of my other posts for all of the details.

At least Im not the only one who feels like they are going crazy. Pretty frustrating, I'm thinking its quality issues based on what I've read. Whatever it is Im hoping it gets resolved quick

Do you know what your scheduled build date was?
