I ordered a BL/Bl on 2/16 same time as you. I received an order confirmation and nothing else. But, I just checked on the Ford site and it went into production yesterday (6/10.) Est. delivery date is 6/28 to OK. Sticker is generated with a VIN.

My dealer had an identical vehicle turned down in April and let me have it. I asked if a life-long friend could have the one I ordered. So the order is still in my name. Friend changed the color so we wouldn't look like twinkies. I'm still a little concerned that it might not get built before the plant shutdown. But, at least it's happening.
I like Twinkies. As a matter of fact, I did the same color. I'm glad your friend is getting the vehicle. Did you also get the 360+?

My BL+BL is now on a sailboat in China and will arrive sometime between Oct 2021 + Oct 2022. It’s grease packed in a crate and will require assembly when it arrives. My order date of 2/22 seems so long ago. I’m so freaking tired of trying to explain to family and friends when I will get it. They look surprised and then laugh.

Hope the best for you but news like this just gets me a bit more pissed off. My order was confirmed Feb 9, went into production June 4 and then I got the infamous ETA change to Oct 31. Explanation is chip shortage.

A few days a go I came to the realization that I had managed to memorize my VIN. To be clear - that is not a good thing....

I am ha ha on the memorized VIN comments....yeah same. That's not good. I hope it works out in the end for you, I can only imagine it has to do with some of the features you ordered and the pecking order of the dealer you are affiliated with. It's rough. I get it. Hang in there, it's worth it when you get behind the wheel.

So mystery is how can Ford hold vehicles until October due to chip shortage then build more units the next week? How does that happen?

My question exactly! A pecking order thing? If so that doesn't exactly make me feel like a valued Ford customer. Ive owned 3 Fords previously. 1 Mustang and 2 F-150s.

I've got my VIN memorized also. That's just plan sad....If they bump us all to 10/31, does that mean we all get a 2022 models?

Did the owners of the vehicles that are on hold waiting for the chip get an email notice that says this? I am waiting for that shoe to drop once mine is built.

I have a Badlands on order, waiting and the unknown are tough. But, just so you know, the F150 pick ups built here in Louisville are on holding lots throughout the area….I'm talking hundreds are parked……I’m assuming, waiting on chips.

Does anyone have a photo of a White Oxford BL with a Thule Fly Rod Vault strapped to the roof parked along the Frying Pan river near Aspen Colorado? Perhaps with a Black Lab sticking his head out the rear window with a big grin on his face. If so please post. I will print and put underneath my pillow.

Only possible answer is some require critical chips vs some require five extra chips and a roof they don't have...some dealers get bumped due to volume sales, some customers have bad karma? Lol I'm sure there IS a method to the madness. A Ford exec described the perfect storm and perfect sample of a right now vs right never bronco based on suppliers and parts distribution. It actually did make sense. Why build a boat for the guy in the Mojave desert vs the guy living along lake Erie?
