What Satexas said 👆
I was given a week of 1/18 build date from my dealer, and am still "in order processing" and no windows sticker, but I have a VIN. So really, who knows.

I’m in the same situation, except with a hopeful build week of 2/1. I’m worried that this is a sign they are planning, or at least reserving the right to push a bunch of our builds back by a few weeks....

On 12-1 when my vin came in, the truck was scheduled for the week of 1-18.
about a week later, it moved to the day of 1-19
Right before the Christmas break, I went in to see the dealer for something and he looked again.
It had been pushed back to 1-24---but still within the "week of" (1-24 is a Sunday)

I guess their weeks start on Monday

BTW---my production date has not yet shown up on either of the trackers and the window sticker is not yet available

You are not alone. I was given a build week of 1-18 on my Lariat Powerboost also and the Ford tracker still lists as "in order processing" and no window sticker available yet. I expect we will get scheduled to the day this Thursday and then we will get access to window stickers and a build day.

Ordered beginning of September, got my VIN the second week of December with a production date of 1/15, on Saturday (1/9) my window sticker became available, so almost exactly a week before production. Window sticker still says 1/15 as date of production.

Hang in there!

What pisses me off is I ordered before the price increase but it’s looking like if your window sticker didn’t generate before the price increase you are subject to it.

How so? I will be livid and want to delete my max tow. I only did it because the difference was only $350.

woah woah

things you need to know -

IMPORTANT FACT - No price is locked in until day of delivery and payment. This includes Ford offers and specials. YOU can walk at any time. The longer this takes, the more specials you are going to get to take advantage of (March is truck month). You will get all the new deals you qualify on, on that ACTUAL DELIVERY date. A dealer can only now promise you things on the dealers projected profit line - not Fords. Dealers have ABSOLUTELY NO IDEA what those specials will be.

That being said, you agreed to purchase something on a Ford advertised price and they should and will honor it if you fight for it. Ford would definitely let the dealer do it, they knew the risks in raising/adjusting price.

My deal with my dealer was simple : I pay $1000 below Ford invoice, plus I get any Ford offers on delivery/pay date.

My is scheduled to be built next week. My plan is if they don’t do below invoice I will be walking and someone else can have it.
