Just wondering if anyone with a 4/25 build week actually has a “built” truck yet. I’m getting excited since all the modules are fired up but the truck is still in production. I did the spray in bed liner so I figure it will take a little more time.

Welcome to the forum @Ash! I imagine the built notifications are going to be coming in closer to the 25th. How did you spec your Lariat aside from the spray-in bedliner?
Built week of APRIL 25th not May
Why it would take a month to show as build?

Does anyone from April built schedule have different outcome ?

Thanks RDale. I built it in carbon grey, extended battery, max tow package, AT tires and the bed liner. Hoping to get it soon since I just sold my 2018 F150 in anticipation.

I am wondering the same thing. I check my Ford account like 5 times a day. (Yeah I know…. But I don’t get too excited or obsess over many things)

I've been watching a variety of VIN's (secured from Auto Trader) on the FORD tracker, 3/15 blend dates and later are not showing a BUILT STATUS yet

Wow so no trucks directed at consumers are built yet? I know it will get here eventually it’s just the anticipation that’s killing me.

The day I went in to confirm my order with the dealership, the sales guy commented on that tracking system. He first told me about it but then said it can be up in the air. You can receive pictures and what not during the build process and then on the truck. Or nothing at all and you get a flood of them when it arrives on their lot. He said one of this customers ordered a GT500 and a F150. I think the guy got images of one of them but not the other. When the one that didn't have any information arrived the pictures finally showed up.

No, there many which are built, but the STATUS tracker has not changed to say they are COMPLETE

Ford Authority just had an article on the chip issue most likely affecting Lightnings as well. Things like back up cam circuits etc. So I assume a lot of the trucks in the early build weeks are 99% done aka those sitting outside awaiting final parts and pieces.

I have a Lariat with a 5/2 build and of course have had my VIN and window sticker for quite a while but tracking site still says In Production as of May 10.

Mine still shows "in production" as of 4/11. It was built on 4/22 and still sits at the proving grounds.

Thanks. That is good info. Mine is a 5/2 build week and still 'In Production' of course. The good part is when we get our trucks we can rip off 4.2 sec 0-60 runs. It'll beat my wife's Ioniq 5 (I got a personal best of 4.9 secs on a nearby back road).

If you haven't already, I would add your truck to your Ford Pass app. I got lucky and someone approved it on the screen in my truck so I can see exactly where it is and when it moves.
Thanks. I had added it a while ago to Ford Pass but still can't Activate as I get the standard 'Cannot be activated at this time'. I have had the 4 digit dealer order number, so tracking on the tracking site for a while.
