At this point I’d be wondering if your dealer even put the order in at allI keep trying to be patient with Ford but I have to admit my patience is starting to run out. Ordered my 2022 Raptor on February 4, 2022 and still do not have a VIN; all I have is four emails telling me the same BS story about supply chain issues.
I have been all over the Ford Raptor forums and have leaned more from forums like this one and those than from my dealer.
This weekend I am going to my dealer and ask them for some answers such as:
Since it is no doubt I am being pushed to a 2023 order, where do I stand in the pecking order?.
What is their allocation for 2023 Raptors and did they knowingly order my truck knowing they had already used all their allocations for 2022?
I worked at Ford for 35 years and retired. When I called customer service to ask about my truck, the lady was very nice but knew nothing about anything. I know about change overs (going from current model year and starting new model year) and how they work. Someone knows something.
If Ford continues to operate like they have been, I can't see how they will survive like this. Customers mean less now to them than anytime I have ever seen.
Just be upfront and honest.
The order is in or I would not have gotten a confirmation email. It is all the "I do not know" that gets me mad.At this point I’d be wondering if your dealer even put the order in at all
Go to the 10/24 build week lots of power boosts but so far zero V8’sNoticing that the scheduled trucks are ecoboost based, I checked my local dealer's lot to see where the XLT V8s are built. Out of 19 XLT and V8s trucks, only 2 were built in Dearborn. Something similar for XLs with V8. My best guess is that these trucks will come from KC. With scheduling for KC starting on the 22nd, I think we'll need to wait for Sep 25th to get our schedule emails and to be scheduled after Nov 7th.
