My dealer said I am number 253. But didn’t tell me what wave I am. When am I going to order? Is it this end of year for delivery next year?

Will contacting Ford give me a date or will customer service not know either?

Expected production this year is something between 15-30k, unevenly split between 3k dealerships. An even split would be 5-10 each, so if you’re 253rd it’ll be a while. Production is expected to ramp up towards 150k per year, but how long it takes to achieve that output is a good question.

Number subject to change, your mileage may vary.

My dealer let me know on Tuesday to expect an email from Ford. Got the email Thursday around noon eastern time. I switched from the big dealer around here because they said that they would charge adm, but couldn't tell me how much. I was 49 of 250+ there. I emailed some other dealers. A smaller one said no ADM on ordered products and that I was number 10. I reserved on may 21 around noon. I am in a zev state. Good luck.

Each wave has 5 orders. So 253 would put my in Dec 2022 to order. That’s a bit away. And who knows how long each order could take until delivery.
Most dealers are getting 0, 1, or 2 per wave. Some larger market dealers in ZEV states get a couple more. There are definitely not 5 orders per wave, per dealer. There are also only 6 numbered waves, maybe a clean-up wave for whatever is left after March 31st (which is the cutoff date for Waves 1-6), and then 2023 model ordering in the summer. They will not still be doing 2022 waves in December.
