Ordered our vehicle 11/30/20. Dealer supplied possible production date & delivery date. Window sticker posted 1/13/21 with vehicle to be shipped by rail after production. Lotsa numbers on the window sticker. Any clue if any of those numbers might indicate actual production date & where can info be found showing, after production date, when & where vehicle being railed to & when it will be convoyed to the dealer?

The small numbers at the top will show you the production date. Its likely 1/20 or 1/21 if the sticker posted on the 1/13. If you post the vin in the order tracking post that is going on there are some people who can help you look up more detailed info.

My Platinum Hybrid was ordered 11/11/20. Tracker shows in production on 1/10/21. Dealers says about 2-3 week delivery. Put your VIN into one of of the trackers posted here and you get a lot of info. It doesn’t speed up the process but you can kill some time reading about it.

The number above the word blend at the top of the window sticker indicates build date. You will see 2202101XX the XX would be the date in January when it will be built.

Yep, I have 2 retail orders I have been refreshing a few times a day and tonight one window sticker showed up. This dealer originally said "scheduled week of 1/18" so yep, Jan 21 is indeed "week of" Jan 18. The bad news for me is this is the dealer that is very annoying to work with but is about 1 week ahead of the other one. I'll have to see if he is even interested in my purchase and helps me out or wants to sell it for more to a walk-up customer.
