I'm guessing Expy/Navi launch has something to do with it.

What? What happened?

That makes no sense since there is no delay between 17 and 18 production.

I'm saying your dealer doesn't know what he's talking about.

Think about it.   Regardless of whether they switch from the 17s to the 18s in September, October, November or December, it doesn't change the number of trucks actually produced each month.  

 

I think were was some miscommunication/misunderstanding.

Good afternoon   I just talked to my cousin who works on the second shift in Louisville KY at the Supper Duty Plant. And works on the Cab and Chassis line, and he says that they are building 2018 chassis on all three shifts. I thought they were going to start 11-20-17?

Still haven't seen anything advertised except the Limited wrapped in Gold one. Thought we'd at least see a regular 250 brochure. Maybe the website will be up soon to play with. Seems that it would be if you can walk in a dealer and use the order guide for one.

  •   I also work at KTP, we are not running 2018 Super Dutys yet.  He might have seen some pre build models.  We just launched the 2018 Expedition/Navigator, they will wait until this is over to launch the Super Duty.
