I do not know either there are no restriction on it and it is Unscheduled - Clean ready to be picked up when retail orders go...

There are no warnings or errors on this end...

The same thing happened to my reservation. When I spoke to the General Sales Manager of my dealership, he said that this just puts your reservation to "Unscheduled Clean" status and can still make changes. It is only when your status changes to "Scheduled" is when you cannot make anymore modifications to your build. In order to switch your status to "Scheduled", you will have to reach out to your dealership and finalize your build.
Are you saying that having an order number is not confirmatory that the order is in the queue awaiting a build date? I've been not getting any replies from inquiries to my dealer. I originally was asking to confirm that the Cargo Management System was included in my build since their "confirmation email" of my reservation didnt include accessories. Their confirmation email did include the build I'd chosen (Red Badlands+Badlands) but didn't show ANY accessories like CMS, crossbars, mudflaps etc. A lot of the buzz here seems to indicate the CMS must be done at factory, and I've been trying to confirm it's even on my order. And now, it sounds like you're saying having an order number at the Ford site under my account doesn't mean Im waiting for a build date? There's something else that needs to be done first? Or am I misunderstanding this whole thing?

Thanks!

Yes, it seems like going from “reservation #” to “order #” is the dealer acknowledging your reservation. From my understanding if you haven’t spoken to your dealership to “finalize” your build then it’s technically just in an idle state. @grangerford can probably confirm this

Sigh. I realize a lot of this is a cluster and there is a lot of conflicting info out there so I’m not holding anyone else except the dealer responsible for anything. But it’s really frustrating. I DID receive an email from the dealer right after my reservation asking me to confirm my build. I replied that it was correct (again, it was rudimentary info that is standard on a BL+BL and didn’t show any accessories). Then a day later, I got my order number. So is that the same as talking to the dealer to confirm build or is there another step? (This is essentially rhetorical as I know nobody here really knows.) just frustrating.

I'd interpret that as you confirming the build. I heard from my dealership after placing my reservation and they sent me a final build, it had some errors and I sent over the corrections to make, they responded with an updated order and I confirmed it was what I wanted, and I received my order confirmation the next day. Waiting on what I'm assuming is a build date from Ford at this point, the salesperson I'm working with has let me know when they got some demo models for training and is expecting their first mannequin in the next few weeks.

I’ve received an email from Ford that my FE has been scheduled for production the week of December 7th.. but still have not heard anything from my dealer to confirm everything.
When I first started my order on the launch night in July, I got a voicemail from my dealer saying “thanks for your interest in a Ford EcoSport!” I reached to inform them that was incorrect and they apologized. That’s the last I’ve heard from them....

That’s funny. I got the same Ecosport message from my dealer back in July. I didn’t think too much about it at the time. Just figured they weren’t too organized. I met with them in person later to place my order for the BS.
