Called my dealer to confirm today - my email from Ford & dealer both show the same build week of 2/15. I know several people have gotten mixed responses, so thought I'd chime in.

I got my VIN number today. So now I have my build date and my VIN. Chatted with Ford online today and they gave me the Ford site that you can go put in your VIN if you already have it and track your order if anyone wants it.

I got a VIN from my dealer, email from Ford saying build week Jan 11. However, when i input VIN to that site (and called Ford Mkting), they don't have any build date listed and the "scheduled for production" step isn't checked off...

Anyone having similar experience?

Exact same. Dealer info and my email both show 2/15, the VIN tracker doesn’t appear to be up to date yet.

Same thing with mine. I'm guessing it's just not updated yet.

Yes. I don’t think the website is updating as quickly as the email and dealer notification

I don't know if this is accurate or not but from what I understand. Even though we have a build week, that is just for a batch of cars. It won't be until they actual put the VIN in the system to actually set up the production order that the next box will be ticket. For example: I got an email saying I was scheduled for the week of March 1st. But I could actually get built anywhere from 3/1-3/5. Once they know when exactly your car will be built the next box gets checked. My guess is that won't happen until a couple weeks before the build week you got in the first email.

Again, that is just my understanding from talking to ford customer service.

Now Ford has me really confused. I received an email from them on Nov 19th saying that my FE would be in production Jan. 18th (original date was 11/26 and I was bummed out with the delay). I just checked the Ford website and it's showing it will be in production on Monday. Don't get me wrong, I'm happy with the original date but Ford's communications are leaving a lot to be desired.
