    The are things that can be done to help expedite scheduling of an order although it's much more limited in cases of an order including limited production options such as the PP2. Once a vehicle is scheduled there's nothing a Dealer can do.

    2019 Ranger Production Information

    Ford is generating invoices for Ranger's in production but has posted a notice that Window Stickers will not be generated until fuel economy testing is completed and the final MPG ratings are available. FORD STATEMENT The availability of the 2019 Ford Ranger online Monroney Label has temporarily been disabled to allow for the final Fuel Economy data to be correctly represented on all documents. We anticipate that access to these online window stickers will continue to be disabled through December 10, 2018. This will impact access through both the Vehicle Locator application and the links provided to your Dealer web sites.Our team will provide updates regarding the availability of these online window stickers as information regarding their release is received.

    2019 Ranger Production Information

    Production for Dealer stock orders has started but customer retail orders will not start to schedule until the "OK to Buy" status has been achieved which is not expected until sometime in January.
  9. Ford's IT Department has been doing its usual, exceptional job lately with Dealers having extremely limited access to the FMCDealer.com portal since Thursday afternoon. Ford has a Business Continuity Document PDF that provides direct access to specific applications but even using this is troublesome right now. For example, it is impossible to access the SMART Weekly Order Management or WBDO (Web Based Dealer Order) links. As such, I've not been able to access information for my Production Week Scheduling Timetable report. It's anyone's guess if they're working on the problem over the weekend but as soon as access is restored I'll upload the information for next week's vehicle scheduling.

    2019 Mustang GT

    Nothing specific to add but I'm driving a GT that was released and shipped right after the throttle body replacement issue was announced. The vehicle was not affected and was prepped and detailed the day it arrived and I've been driving it since the following morning. The new 10-speed automatic is very good as is the Active Valve Performance Exhaust.
  11. Per yesterday's FDNB (Fleet Distribution News Bulletin) the following timetable has been announced for the 2018MY Balance Out & 2019MY Job #1. 01/05/2018 - 2018MY Fleet Final Order Due Date 01/25/2018 - 2018MY Last Day to Spec Change 03/25/2018 - 2018MY Job Last Date 01/17/2018 - 2019MY Order Bank Open Date 02/15/2018 - 2019MY Scheduling Begins 03/26/2018 - 2019MY Job #1 Date Looks like the 2018MY Expedition is going to just start arriving at dealerships in volume when the 2019MY Expedition USOB (Unscheduled Order Bank) is going to be open! The 2019MY Expedition Order Guide should be released to dealers on or about the date that the USOB opens. Now the speculation can start as to what changes will be made for the 2019 Model Year!
  12. Per my message above, the Raptor's are not part of the regular allocation and scheduling process. The allocation is assigned from the Regional office as it becomes available and then made available to the dealership. The scheduling is then done manually by the Regional Scheduler but the process takes several weeks after the dealership is notified. This process applies regardless of whether the order is Stock or Retail.
  13. Per Ford's announcement today to all Ford dealerships... The New Ford Customer Vehicle Order Tracking Website https://shop.ford.com/vehicleordertracking SUMMARY We are announcing the Customer Vehicle Order Tracking website has launched. Ford has developed an online order tracking application that will allow customers to check on the status of their Ford retail order. The website can track the order through five (5) statuses that align with the Primary statuses in Vehicle Visibility. The expectation is the customer can get on demand information about their order without having to call the Sales Consultant or the Customer Relationship Center. ORDER STATUS When the customer enters the VIN, they will see one of the following five (5) order statuses and corresponding information: In Order ProcessingYour order has been entered into the Ford Ordering System. It will then be scheduled and placed in the first available production week. Once scheduled, a Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) and estimated build date will be provided in the upper-left corner of the home page. Be sure to view the Vehicle Summary section and learn about the features on your vehicle. In ProductionYour order is being manufactured at one of our factories. This can take a few days. When you have a moment, tryout the link to your Window Sticker that is now available lower on the page. Awaiting ShipmentYour vehicle has been built and we are arranging shipment to your dealer. This step could take a few days to a week. Select the "Learn About Your Vehicle" link for information and videos about your new vehicle. In TransitYour vehicle is In Transit or on its way to your dealership. Transit times vary from an average of 12 - 28 days based on your location and the plant where the vehicle was built. This is a great time to explore "Ford Accessories" to see how you can personalize your vehicle. Don't forget to add comments to the short survey so we can enhance the Order Tracking Site. DeliveredYour vehicle has arrived at the dealership and should be ready for pick up in a few days. Your dealership will be able to provide the specific date and time for delivery. Website supports 2018 Model Year Ford vehicles (excluding Ford GT) and will pick up with 2019 Model Year Ford vehicles when they launch. KEY POINTS  Ford vehicles only – Excludes Lincolns  Retail orders only  2018 & 2019 Model Year vehicles as they are available  Excludes Ford GT vehicles  Requires VIN to track – a VIN that is not scheduled may produce an error message  Website link: https://shop.ford.com/vehicleordertracking
  14. F-150 Raptor's are not part of the regular allocation and scheduling process. Ford tells the Dealer when to put Raptor orders into the USOB (Unscheduled Order Bank) and then the Regional Scheduler re-prioritizes the order to "01" before the system will schedule the order. The process can take a few weeks before the Raptor order is scheduled.
