I have spent the better part of this week in a back and forth with a local dealer trying to get them to give me a firm quote. It is the closest, but I am not going to play this game, will try the next closest with hopes they are able to take me seriously, and then...maybe then, I will be able to update this list!

Thanks! This is my first Ford Purchase, so I just started with a place close by, has been illuminating.

Has anyone used Costco's member car buying service to place an order? I'm working with a dealer and they claim that they can't provide me with a firm Costco price until Ford updates on their end. Seems odd, but nothing about this process has been clear to me.

After weeks of sorting through info and trying to find a local dealer that was as knowledgeable and helpful as Albert from Granger Ford, I finally placed my order and have started the longest wait known to man. I ordered a King Ranch 4x4 with the Powerboost and 5.5 ft box. Antimatter Blue over Stone Gray. Pretty basic 600A, added max trailer tow, 360 cameras, tow mirrors, 7.2kw pro power, 6" extended running boards, Co-Pilot360 2.0 Active Prep, power tailgate, and the rear under seat storage. This will be the nicest truck I've ever owned, and truth be told it will be my wife's daily driver, so I can drive something fun like a new Mach 1 hopefully in '22. But we'll see who really drives the truck more until I get that Mach 1 😀

I have received a VIN on my order. It is a stock order but dealer did two for me, one stock and one retail and I get which ever comes first.

Their information is showing week of 26 Oct for the stock order for build week as of last Thursday.

Ordered a KR 4X4 powerboost pretty much loaded out, MSRP was around 76k. I have built it on the Ford build site but don't know how to copy the picture to post.

The VIN is not yet showing up on the Ford tracking site yet but knew it might be too early for that.

Submitted the info for my truck, it will be interesting to see when mine gets built as I did order the 3.0l Diesel. I put almost 50,000 hwy miles a year on, so I am curious where I will end up with fuel efficiency.

I placed my order today for a Platinum FX4, Star White Tri-coat, with Powerboost full hybrid, 701A, locking storage, work surface, twin panel moon roof, 7.2 Kw pro-power on board, spray in bed liner and Trailer Tow Package. Using the Costco Member buying service and still not sure of the pricing until the VIN is generated. Told it should be lower than the "A" pricing, and below invoice by $2000.00. We'll see. Deposit fully refundable.

Asked the dealer to order a "stock" similar to what Currybob has posted, but was told that the retail build orders are completed first. Let's see.
(EDIT to attach Build Order)

per a different thread, Granger Ford did indeed indicate retail orders are picked up first. Good choice on build.

That sounds like a very solid truck and would mirror closely what I'm considering ordering. Unfortunately, I have a garage issue to solve. We have a fairly modern home, but for some reason the builder thought that everyone owns Camry's or the like. My side of the garage is just at 240" from the door to the back wall, my wife's side is 213", and the door is 192". It's gonna be tight!

Actually that is not correct for the beginning of a new model year.

They will start off running only stock orders at a slower rate first while checking the lines and processes for accuracy. These first builds will get a much higher level of quality checks to insure the line is running correctly. This is done before they go Job1

Once they go Job1 is when retail/pre-sold orders will have priority.

How do you think I already have a VIN assigned.

That's an issue across, well, everywhere. Imagine living in a horrible state, like Texas, and knowing that every moron on the planet buys trucks and extended SUVs... And you intentionally build an EXACTLY 20' long garage, but then 12"-18" is taken up by a water heater, or the garage door braces, etc.
I HATE this state, but moreso the pile of garbage home builders that are trying to cut PENNIES out of their budget, even though they KNOW their customer base owns giant vehicles. I'm not bitter at all. /sarcasm #endrant

Ceramic coating or graphine... Leaning towards ceramic though - absolute first thing I'm doing to my new truck when it arrives.

Bob, not disagreeing with you, but telling you what my Florida-based sales person said when I asked him to order stock to match my retail. I'll guess we'll see what happens. The whole process on Ford's part is an average roll-out, but my expectations weren't pie in the sky either.

When I pull up the 2021 and do a build it says the vehicle is not available on costcoauto? Did you just call the dealership and ask?

I did the build on CostcoAuto and submitted - dealer called me immediately. I called CostcoAuto to see if there were any other Ford dealers than the one who called me, and the closest to the Florida dealer was in New Jersey (really?!?). No pricing from the dealer until they get the VIN.

Well, in 1992, when my home was built, an XLT Lariat Ext. Cab Short bed was 219" long. That would fit no problem. My Tacoma is 212", so again, not a big issue. I have tools on the back wall, so if I want to park the F-150, I may have to change how I store them. Don't even get me started on the laundry shoot that takes up a considerable part of my wife's side.

Ok, I think I have hijacked the thread enough...back to your normally scheduled discussion on Order Tracking and Stats.

I hear ya and by no means think you were dishing me. I want all the info I can find, I'm retired and sometimes get board and like to track my new vehicle when I order one. Don't know why I like the torture but I seem to. Lol

I have order multiple new vehicles and 4 new F150s over the years. This guy that ordered my 21 has done my last 3 and he orders for 3 other Ford dealerships that this company owns. His information has been dead on over the years and doesn't feed a bunch of mis- information if he doesn't know. I have seen many post from folks as yourself that are told some really wrong/weird things.

I think it would really be better for you if he would do a stock order also, exactly the same as your retail order and say you get whichever comes first. It's not like they would get stuck with it and not be able to sell it. Could easily make 4 to 6 weeks difference.

I had ordered a 2015 also at the first of the model year and did not get it till March because of the big change over to aluminum that year. Hope this won't be anything like that.

My guy still doesn't have one for the pre-sold/retail order that he put in my name. The stock order was actually placed 4 days after the retail order and it has a VIN.

They are suppose to have started re-tooling this week for ever how long that takes, then start the stock runs, then Job 1 will start which was projected to be 12 Oct.

Lariat Sport FX4 502A vs. Platinum 701A identical specs....
roughly +$4K on MSRP for styling, 20" shiny wheels and swankier "Active" leather, and deployable running boards

So do you pay MSRP or invoice price?
