How long did it take for your order to be confirmed?
A few minutes after I got off the phone with the dealership. I confirmed build via email the he called and said the order was placed and I had an email right after that

Same experience here, an email from Ford within minutes of getting off the phone with my dealer.

I too only have the same screen shown as in dealer order. I have not yet received a Ford Email saying the order is confirmed.

@Granger Ford
Does the dealer still need to push the order through? Or are we just waiting for Ford to pull the order into the system?

Thanks

My order was pushed through "offline" I watched my dealership do it but I haven't received a confirmation yet from Ford.

Same with me... Hopefully Albert will shine some light.

I'm not particularly in a hurry... Kind of don't want to make the purchase until early 2021 as this year has been particularly unlucky for me (pandemic not withstanding).

Hoping to see some good press for the Sport. Maybe we will start to see reviews next month.

And maybe the Rallye October will make for some good press!

So I guess the dealership still needs to push the order through then?

Call them and see if they have processed your order it should show up and they can give you their order number...

When the VIN is produced in your name it should show up on your Ford account...

Here is another tracking site for Ford built vehicles...

Does Ford communicate with the dealer about when to convert the reservations into an actual build?

I am unaware of anyone getting a VIN yet unless I missed something?
Ive only seen one single person weeks ago claiming he got a build date. Since he is the only one with this claim, I’m guessing he is genuinely mistaken due to his dealer giving him misinformation.
