Hi everyone,

I want to make the switch to the Ford F150 from my Ram, but got a big roadtrip coming up in July that I need A truck for. Wondering what the odds are that I can put a build order in the next couple of weeks and get it by June timeframe for my trip? Thoughts from folks who have ordered and received their truck in 2021? Thanks!

Your chances are slim on that. They're already scheduling into mid-May I believe. If you want an F150 before July, find one on a lot somewhere.

Yeah I have tried, couldn't find something with just enough of the features I want without all the extra weight.

Mid-may doesn't sound bad for delivery... or do you mean to get a build date?

I ordered my PowerBoost Platinum on February 3 and picked it up a couple of weeks ago on March 26. From what I am reading on this site it looks like I got pretty lucky. I'm really liking the PowerBoost so far.

Just ballparking here but I think some have ordered their trucks and got them within about 8 weeks after ordering. Some like me not so lucky. I ordered November 4 got a build date yesterday (don't know when is was actually issued), of May 1 but certainly not holding my breath with the chip shortage. At this point I think I'll be lucky if it rolls onto the dealer lot before end of June.

Sorry to hear, I know how it feels to have to wait for so long for a vehicle - not fun. Stay strong brother..

Thanks! But yeah just wanted to give you an idea of how long it could take. Could be about 8 weeks but I think most are taking longer. It's been commodity availability issues like paint colors, foldable work surface, fully recline seats, etc. Just hasn't been any rhyme or reason that anyone can tell as when the trucks will get built and delivered and why some are built before others. Even before the chip issue some trucks were built and sat at the infamous Ramp 59 waiting. Haven't seen any talk about it in a while but there could still be trucks built waiting to be shipped. If you don't want to risk waiting for a truck to be built you can try car gurus and other sites to check dealer inventory. Good Luck!

Mid to late May is when it would be built. Estimate another month for delivery after that and I'd think mid to late June would be best case for delivery right now.

We ordered our Powerboost XLT F150 late NOV & took delivery mid-FEB which in today's world of chip shortages don't mean squat. It appears the simpler the build the less likely there'll be part shortages. Good luck. Really like our Powerboost!

Same with me, I've got a road trip in July as well and I need the truck. I ordered 26 Mar. and so far I don't even have the confirmation of order. they told me 12-16 weeks was the **average** but I have been studying the orders list here and see quite a few orders hitting the 180-200 days mark. I'm thinking I need to make a plan B for my summer trip.

My order went in March 15, and with the shutdown, my build date was pushed to May 24. Anyone placing an order now , could easily be looking at June or July for a build date, if there are no more shutdowns.
