I'm not good at waiting. I've decided that if it takes long enough for me save up the difference between the BS I ordered and the 4Runner I want just a little less than the BS, I'm getting the 4Runner.
I think that there is a good chance that one like what I ordered will come to dealer near enough to me before that happens.
Understandable. My wife made a point that sunk in. If I'm buying new and something I really want, order exactly what I want, and the wait is worth it. Took a big bend for a test drive, I'll wait (at least a reasonable amount of time.) If the RAV4 is close enough I can see the point. Nothing is "american made" and toyota builds solid vehicles. I sincerely debated between the bronco sport and a toyota truck.

I made a similar statement a while back. If I get concerned about 4Runner's mileage I'll go with Subaru CrossTrek. Still hoping for BS and that I won't have to go that separate route.

I’m out — the waiting game for production scheduling coupled with how my Escape hasn’t held up as well as my Accord allowed me the chance to reconsider. I bought a RAV4 Hybrid in blue flame (46 mpg coming home woohoo).

Since I backpack a lot out here in Colorado the extra off road capability of the badlands isn’t really needed, though they look rad. Have fun with your rides everyone :).

For those keeping track, the date on my window sticker just changed to today's date (4/5). Going by everybody's feedback, I'm betting my BS will be delivered to my dealership this Wednesday, 4/7. Of course, I'll be happy to eat my words if I get the call today or tomorrow...🤣
Well...it's 4/8 and I didn't get the call yet. CSX now says that there is no status available for my railcar. My window sticker still has a date of 4/5.
To make matters worse, Palsapp still has my VIN in a Pending status. Good news? My BS may be somewhere between the final railroad stop in Wayne, MI and my dealership. Bad news? I have no idea where...🤣

Why are the last few days spent in the waiting room the hardest? 🤦🏿‍♂️

Hey Everyone, I found this at the Ford Truck Enthusiasts forum (www.ford-trucks.com) and I think it will be helpful for us. Keep in mind, this post was from 2017, and its specifically discussing Ford trucks, but I think it's probably still pretty similar to what we're experiencing:

"Originally Posted by Johnpsz
Here are the basics..

"In Order Processing" Status:
  • Order from dealer --> Ford getting and accepting the order = Varies mine was next day, but we knew the order pick-up was teh following day and why I went in when I did, other guys took weeks for the order to get picked up base on allotment allocation issues between that dealer and what they had in stock already.
  • Ford Accepting the Order --> VIN = Varies a little but normally under 2 weeks, some have seen in 5 days.
  • VIN --> Window Sticker = ??? This is the biggest unknown to us, as this is the period of time Ford is doing all the leg work to schedule, make sure parts and accessories for your build are available and so forth.
  • NOTE: Window sticker is normally available online the day after it is generated in the system.
"In Production" Status: (normally happens just after the Window Sticker becomes available)
  • Window Sticker --> Build date = 7-8 days depending on the time of day your truck enters the 23 hour build process, 2 days after "In Production it is getting body and paint, the paint dries for 2 days before the interior and everything else is installed and the truck attached to the chassis.
  • NOTE: The Build date is normally available online (ETIS and Cotus) the day after it is generated in the system.
"Awaiting Transport" Status:
  • Build date --> getting loaded for transit = 1-7 days, this varies if you have spray on bedliner (normally a day or 2 is needed for bedliner) or if you are waiting for more vehicles heading in the same direction as your train/convoy.
"In Transit" Status:
  • getting loaded for transit --> getting to the dealership = varies too much, but we found the Ford system assumes about 15 - 21 days (7 day window 2-3 weeks out) for this in the initial ETA they provide. So we can do some reverse math off the ETA to find build week, then subtract a little more to get an approximate W/S date.
So in other words, normally once you get the W/S [window sticker], you know pretty much when things start happening, before the W/S it's an unknown waiting game."

Here's the link to the original thread if anyone wants to see it:

So far, yours has to be the quickest one I have seen yet from order date to build date to delivery week. In normal "pre-covid" times and part/build delays, this would probably be about the norm for a typical new Ford vehicle order.

Ironically I ordered a Badlands no package, 235 tires, tow system, and cargo management. Got my vin today and scheduled for May 17 at this point as well. Sounds like our Broncos will run the line together assuming all goes as projected.

I was pretty surprised when I received the email this morning. Though it looks like a lot of people who ordered in March are getting them built in May.... hopefully this means they are catching up!
