Mine does the same thing now...goes to the MACH E page, but when I use the link above, it shows my order, order number but now says Contact Dealer. I'll wait and see a few days what happens. I've noticed a lot of glitches in their site in the last week, so maybe they're gearing up for changes.

I’ll wait and see in a few seconds what happens. Then again in a few more seconds

My dealer just called to let me know the build date on my FE Sport is 11/23 and he also gave me my VIN number. He expects delivery about 4 weeks later. Now I just hope the Navy Pier is decent....
Congratulations!!! If you don't mind me asking, have you guys gone through the financial details/stage (putting down payment, payment plan, trade-in, rebates/incentives, etc) yet or does that happen when your car is shipped to the dealership already?

Congrats!! I just logged into my Ford account to check my status and now my Reservation / "in-store order" doesn't even show. When I click on "View Now" under Reservations/Orders it just brings me to the Mach-E site....anyone else experiencing the same?

I’ve had that same experience. I don’t have a lot of faith in that website.

My dealer has been very consistent each time I ask that all the financial arrangements will take place at time of delivery. Thus far, I've only had to pay the $100 reservation deposit. My order is confirmed & awaiting VIN assignment. Admittedly, I can't decide if I'm happy they haven't asked for a contract yet or not - I have a trade-in that will need negotiating, but for the moment I'm happy that nothing is locked in with signatures if something goes wrong between now & purchase/delivery. Can always "walk away" in that case.

That's awesome! When you say "delivery" is that when your car is in transit to your dealership or once its physically at your dealership?

As I understand, delivery is actually at the dealership & ready for pickup. Apologies if I'm using the wrong terminology.

Congrats! Did you get a confirmation email from Ford in addition to call from dealer?

Thanks! I did not receive a notification from Ford regarding the production date/VIN.

I reply to several earlier comments today. My dealer has been excellent to work with and it has made all the difference in dealing with the uncertainty that many of you have had. When they called today and gave me my Vin and build week I felt confident that they were on top of everything and even if they didn't have all of the answers now they would get me the information as soon as it is available.

The link is now back to working as it did before... shows my reservation/order rather than sending to the Mach-e landing page. And still no full size build & price. Seems we may have guessed incorrectly for the website oddities yesterday.

This is sooner than I expected. I was shooting for a February - April delivery so I have time to hear from others in reference to any potential issues. (Sorry test pilots) I MUST test drive one before committing and I'd like to read a few 3rd. party reviews. Regardless, congratulations on the VIN's!

I don't think the BS is going to outsell the Bronco, and with it being made in MX I think you should be fine waiting until the dealer mannequins to come in during December for a test drive before you order with your dealer in Jan/Feb and get one within a month or so.

It's literally like Christmas early, or well... you have to wait but at least you know what is going to be under the wrapping! Out of curiosity, what color and what was your date you placed order?
