Any update on production numbers, the last post said 30 per day.

There is another post somewhere around here that said as of Friday they are making about 200 a day.

We are building close to 200 on a good day now and that number should climb quickly.

My dealer screwed my preorder up and ordered an XLT instead of the Lariat I signed for in my buyers order (we had gone back and forth before settling on the lariat). They've been cool about it since I have an email chain that backs me up and it's clear as day on the buyers order, but they had to order my Lariat as a retail order. They put it in as priority 12 but now I've worried it will be delayed as they tell me Ford only pulls retail orders once a month for scheduling.  My dealer is one of the larger ones in the area the deals in volume so I am hoping they have allocation. I have the VIN on the preorder and it's scheduled for delivery in 55 days! Anyone have any info on when they usually pull the retail orders, just looking for a VIN so I can track it on my own?

BTW, thanks to everyone on here; this thread has let me speak with my dealer like a pro :)  

 

Unless they’re doing something completely different they schedule retail (sold) orders every week not once a month.

That's what we had thought too (the dealer and I). But now the dealer is telling me that for some reason Ford only pulls retail Ranger orders once a month instead of weekly.

Maybe they already have a large list of backlogged retail orders waiting to be scheduled, in which case it won’t cause any further delays.

The only vehicle lines that are using the new scheduling system are Fusion and Escape. All the Dealer Stock Orders are scheduled the first week and Retail Orders are scheduled all remaining weeks. Dealers configure all their Stock Orders when they do their monthly wholesale allocation meeting and all those orders are scheduled the next week. For about three days prior to the Stock Orders being scheduled, Dealers can make minor changes (Color & Trim) only. Retail Orders are then scheduled for each of the subsequent weeks.

Retail 2019 Ranger orders will not start to schedule until the "OK to Buy" status is achieved which requires five consecutive days of production with zero defects. Any time a defect is discovered the clock resets to zero until there are five consecutive days of production with zero defects. Once the "OK to Buy" status is achieved both Dealer Stock and Retail Orders will schedule weekly, not monthly.

2019 Ranger Retail Orders are scheduled using a Retail Order Verification System that requires the Dealer to upload a copy of the customer's signed Buyer's Order and Driver's License for verification before the Retail Order will be approved for scheduling. There is also a $750 incentive from Ford for 2019 Ranger Retail Orders placed by January 2, 2019.

I'm thinking the dealer misspoke and they put the second order in as a dealer stock order since they couldn't recall my original retail order without losing my spot. They already told me they aren't worried about the XLT as they will have no problem selling it. I've been getting my info straight from the Business Manager since I'm doing X-Plan so you'd think it would be somewhat accurate.

How does the 2.3L estimated combined mpg of 23 compare with actual driving?

That would be hard to answer since nobody has taken delivery of one yet.   But the new generation of ecoboosts like the 3.5L in my 2018 F150 seem to be a lot better.   My truck is rated at 18/21/25 and I routinely see 25-28 on the highway and 21-22 in mixed driving.

I expect the Ranger real world mpg to be close to the EPA estimates when driven appropriately.

First Ranger5G members to have their ROVP order built!

ROVP window stickers are popping up, but I assume that doesn't guarantee they will be built any time soon.

Rangerdanger when was your ROVP approved ?

 

Ordered September 19th, and I got my VIN on November 2nd. So it must have been approved sometime between those dates.

I'm seeing pop up adds for Chevy Colorado @ $179 per month!

That's the best indication of the Ranger's production schedule I've seen :)

I thought the dealers had brochures?  I only took a paint one but could've sworn there were others.

Dealers had copies of the 2019 Ranger Packaging Guide and 2019 Ranger Preview Guide but not the regular product brochures that are available for the public. The brochures are not normally available until after vehicle production has started and final emission testing, etc. is completed for proper disclosure.
