5/19/21 reservation holder, Order date 9/22/22, build week 11/14/22 "NOT"! It has been a roller coaster and I am ready to come off the rails being it is the end of the week and all I heard from my Dealer: In Production 11/18/22 (even though my account link did not agree) and today TBD when to be in production! Can't make this stuff up and Ford/Ford Dealers really need to get their act together.
This delay and misinformation happen to anyone else?

Mine was scheduled to be built the same week and Ford's website hasn't changed. That said, the order tracker says the blend date was 11/16. It seems like most builds are taking 2-3 weeks, so I wouldn't expect much from Ford until the end of November or the beginning of December.
I just checked Ford's website and my XLT with a blend date of 11/16 is built and ready for shipping. They expect it to get to the west coast 12/16-12/22. I'm not holding my breath with the rail strikes and such, but it would be pretty awesome to get it before the end of the year.

My build is a pretty basic XLT SR build with max tow and tow tech packages. No spray in liner or any accessories.
Update from my order... Truck shipped on 11/29 and is scheduled to arrive 12/16-12/22 according to Ford's website. I also confirmed with my dealer that the truck is actually in route and no longer on any chip holds.
