8 months after I placed my order I can officially say I’m leaving the waiting room!

Congrats. It looks like you may have to wait 8 years to get your license to drive it.

So call me crazy but I’m Giving up my 6 month desert queen 2021 BA/BL, cyber orange , tow pack that I could get next week for a 2022 identical unit build date December due mid January !
same price near as damnit. And a year new newer.
I, obviously, have not needed it the last nine months , what’s another 2? I will keep driving my work vehicles this winter since my retirement got a little delayed anyway and have a 2022 without a year of depreciation built in……..
If anybody wants it let me know I’ll point you to it, it’s in Pa.
Dealer did not mind he says he needs the inventory!
cheers Warren

And… I’m out. 240 days (just under 8 mos.) after ordering. Wishing you all the best of luck.
8 months ago? Is that normal? I'm new to the scene and just ordered mine and don't know what to expect? Really hoping I can get mine before my trip to Colorado in July.

Also work from home will end sometime in 2022, hoping I wont have to get a long term rental car....

No, that is not normal now. It was earlier in the year due to chip shortages, moon roof issues, and other supply chain constraints. I ordered a BS BL at the end of October. It is scheduled for build the week of January 24th, 2022.

Anything but normal except given the chip shortage and shipping issues driven by covid and govt responses to it. This was a MY21, ordered 3/24/21. June builds, which this was, were not completed with all the necessary chips at time of production, so they built them, moved them to a holding lot until they received more chips in and finished running 2021MY productions through the line. Then went back to the lot to put the missing chips into the unfinished builds.

No telling what could happen with MY22 builds. My assumption would be if the chip issue is more or less resolved, it shouldn't take 8 months to get a custom order. I'd guess 2-3 months max if everything goes according to schedule (which was anything but the case for the 2021 rollout). Once you receive a production date/week, if it's actually built in that initial scheduled week, maybe a month max after build is complete to ship it to your dealer.

I had a production date of 11/22 originally and ordered on 9/10 receiving that production date on 9/20. As you can see by my signature I am now sliding into December and fully expect to go to Dec 13th (at the earliest) since we have not heard a peep form anyone on this board that were slid to 11/22 who ordered the first week in September. If I slide beyond December 20th then it is game over till end of January beginning of February.

MY guess is they will not build a BS unless they have ALL the parts for it to avoid a desert lot rot thing again.

They will not be building any BSs from December 27th until starting again January 24th due to scheduled plant break and dedication of the plant to Mavericks for the first 3 weeks in January (go figure on that one since people are already receiving 2022 Mavericks) . Nothing is normal And from what we hear no moonroof BSs until after February. Good luck.

So basically you are three months from order to scheduled production week. If absolutely perfect with no delays you will see your BS at about 4 months after you order.

LOL. Glad you have the same outlook as the rest of us. I ordered 9/10 and ordered with the expectation of not getting it until late spring. Better to be surprised than dissapointed.

I am finally able to leave the waiting room. My Feb lot rot BL/BL was picked up today! A few minor upgrades and accessories will be added in the coming weeks. Sooo worth the wait and really hope none of the 22 orders go through such a challenging year like the 21’s did!

That was the expectation given to me as well. 4 months. Maybe a little less with a Big Bend or a little more with a Badlands. With the way things are going these days, who knows. I’m sure it will be way before I see the Big Bronco.

It’s here! My 21 was ordered July 28 and shipped October 28. The tracker hasn’t updated and I’m not quite out of the waiting room yet. I checked the yard nightly and once I saw that Maryland vehicles delivered yesterday, I figured mine couldn’t be far off. Can’t wait to get inside.

Hope that’s close or nearly so for me. But my BL order was confirmed 9/29/21 and that’s the only info i have - no production date or anything beyond that. No emails from Ford. Perhaps that’s because I ordered a moon roof - but I didn’t know better at the time. Many times when I enter the VIN at the Ford site I get NO results!

A family member ordered a BL w/moonroof on 9/22 and is currently scheduled for 12/6. I have not seen any confirmation that moonroofs are a problem with the '22 orders.
