Curious where the first actual trucks on dealer lots will be located... hopefully if oktb was reached that could be this wèek.

just think after all of the waiting, some person who hasn’t waited a minute may drive up and leave in their new 21...
I have to agree with you on that.

I don't know they will get the best deal and may not get exactly what they want but no months of waiting.

I drive by my Ford dealership like a highschool boy driving by his ex girlfriend’s house😂😂
Ive been out there 3 more times.

A couple of trucks left the Ford plant storage lot with drivers, but I was going the wrong way to follow. On the way back I noticed the Ford Mini bus going to pick the drivers up (my assumption) So, I tailed him and he was flying. He drove into Worlds of Fun parking lot and there was a security guard at the gate where I was forced to end pursuit. For some reason they are parking F150s there.

Sounds like KC and Dearborn will go OKTB at the same time.

Good investigative work Boo! I guess you could say waiting on our F-150s is...... Worlds of Fun!

I was doing my usual “search inventory” to check if any dealers in the Montreal area had received 2021s. Low and behold, Ford.ca shows that a 2021 XLT has just arrived at my dealership. It’s less that 5 kilometres from my house and I have to got to grocery store next door anyways, so why not drop in. The Sales Manager just laughs and says must be a joke. No 2021s on the lot now or anytime soon. He did tell me that he had a call from the Ford Canada’s District Sales Manager and that OKTB was attained today and retail orders were now being built. Our truck, ordered Oct 05 should be built in December and delivered in the new year.

The information on this site has been surprisingly accurate this far. If trucks don’t ship until OKTB is achieved, all of the advertisements of 2021 trucks supposedly on lots are 100% false.

They are false. I’ve seen dealers going as far as photoshopping pictures from test drive events others have posted online to make it look line they are on lots. I’ve seen zero evidence any have been shipped.

Yep. I’ve seen that too. Shady stuff...

Yep,
fake news. Notice “in transit”

I don’t do much have an issue with that. A lot of dealers have something to the affect of “coming soon”, or “new arrival”, or “new stock” with no photos available. If I don’t see any photos, I pretty much assume it’s not on the lot yet.

The fake arrival on Ford.ca even has a window sticker

The dealer I am buying from has these listings.
Under “STATUS” it says dealer ordered stead of in stock.

Okay by me, as they have one coming in with the interior I ordered and I’d like to actually see it in person. The truck is built and I would imagine easy to ship.
About a 20-24 hour drive to get here from KCM, so pretty sure it will arrive before mine will.

Would be nice if they moved that fast, that trip will take a train 4 days and then they have to unload all the rail cars of vehicles and load on a car carrier (2 days) and drive whatever distance is left, all while unloading at different dealers along the way(1-2 days).

Truck from KCM to here are coming on trucks, near as I can tell..
I know Dearborn bred trucks go to Houston via rail and are distributed from there, but all the vehicles from KCM destined to my dealer say convoy in the shipping box
