Hi
I am new here and I was reading about tracking with your VIN and order number. How soon after the order is placed do you get the VIN? I heard it is showing going to production at the end of June. If it is showing that, is there a VIN?
Thank you

VIN is available when the invoice is sent to factory...usually one week prior to build (at least in my case)

You probably already have a VIN assigned. You'll need to ask your dealer. They'll be able to give you your order number too, which is a 4 character code.

When it is schedule for production it gets a VIN. I ordered 3/16, got a VIN April 1 with production date of May 24. Then it got rescheduled two more times now schedule for June 14.

If you get VIN and Order Number you can track it here: https://shop.ford.com/vehicleordertracking#/

Dealer can provide VIN and Order Number as soon as it gets a production date.

Be prepared for production delays and getting your date pushed back etc. Its a waiting be patient type of thing. Here is some more info on Ford order process:

The best thing I can say, times are crazy, and everyone has a different experience. I placed an order in late March, had a vin in early April with a build scheduled for May 17. I've checked repeatedly on my order, my dealer controls all the information. I had my order number and VIN so I could use the Ford tracker myself as others mentioned, and I could see it was processed with no ETA, and no other info. Everything is in Limbo, even the vaunted Bronco is stopping production along with their biggest moneymaker the F-series pickup.
By chance I was contacted by a dealer I test drove with, another customer had backed out of teh same badlands I have on order, it arrived at the dealership today as I was moving my son home from college. I am going up there tomorrow, hope to bring it home. Ironically their PASLAPP showed ETA may 28 and it's here may 7. Even the dealer said end of the month if I was still interested. Hang in there.

Thank you everyone for the replies. This has been very helpful. I am not sure if I am doing this messaging thing right either. lol
