With the 2024 order banks currently scheduled to open on July 17, we'll likely start seeing details on what the next model year will bring in the coming weeks. Figure it was time to get a place to post those details and discuss orders, etc... for MY24

I found this description on another forum of the order process helpful, so reposting for those considering an order for 2024 that are new to this process:

Ford Dealers can submit vehicle orders via either the traditional CONCEPS ordering system or the newer WBDO (Web Based Dealer Ordering) system. Fleet orders and/or specification changes must be made via CONCEPS. The WBDO system only accepts stock (Dealer Stock, Demonstrator) orders and all variations of retail orders (Retail, A/X/D Plan, Etc.). Both ordering systems generate error notices and will not display pricing information until any errors are corrected.

The CONCEPS ordering system requires the Dealer to manually enter all the order codes… Year, Body Code, Priority Code, Option Codes, etc. The newer WBDO system uses plain language descriptions, etc. and only displays options available for that vehicle’s Model Year, Body Code & Order Code. Retail orders using the WBDO system default to Priority Code “19”.

Dealers assign priority codes to each order based on the Order Type. Stock orders are assigned priority codes 20-80, retail orders are assigned priority codes 10-19. Fleet orders are assigned special alpha numeric codes that represent a requested production week. The priority codes determine the order for which vehicle orders are to be selected and/or considered for scheduling. This overview doesn’t consider commodity issues (model, powertrain or option scheduling restrictions) that may be in place for a scheduling week. Commodity issues and/or restrictions can apply at either or both the regional and national levels.

The highest priority that a Dealer can use for a retail order is 10. An order with a “10” priority code will schedule ahead of an order with an “11” priority code, etc. This allows Dealers to prioritize the order in which vehicles are scheduled, especially when a Dealer may have multiple retail orders in the USOB (Unscheduled Order Bank). With the WBDO ordering system, retail orders default to priority code “19” so it’s important that a Dealer change the priority code to a lower number if they want the order to be considered for scheduling earlier compared to other orders.

Ford provides Dealers with a schedule for vehicle allocation each week on Monday mornings which shows how many vehicles of each model line that the Dealer has allocation for scheduling that week. That same weekly allocation report also includes information on any regional commodity issues or restrictions. On Monday afternoons, the Scheduling Toolbox Report is released which provides more detailed information on commodity issues and scheduling availability on a national basis. On Tuesday mornings, the AM Scheduling Preview Report is available to show Dealers which vehicle orders have been selected or previewed, on an initial basis, to be selected for scheduling that week. The same report is updated and available on Wednesday morning to show any changes based on commodity issues that may have changed.

On Wednesday afternoon, the Regional Scheduler issues a notice informing Dealers of the vehicle specifications available for scheduling for orders not already showing on the AM Preview Report. This provides Dealers with information on what vehicle specifications are available for scheduling should they have orders showing on the AM Preview Report that are not what the Dealer wants.

Ford generates what are called “SIMS Orders” each week which are Ford’s suggested orders based on commodity information available at the time. If a Dealer has vehicle allocation for scheduling that week and has no Dealer orders in the USOB or orders that don’t meet the commodity restrictions in place for that week, the scheduling system will default to trying to schedule SIMS (Smart Inventory Management System) orders if they meet any commodity restrictions in place. The SIMS orders are available to Dealers online Monday mornings and in print form on Tuesday mornings. Dealers can enter their own vehicle orders or change the Ford generated SIMS orders.

Ford Dealers earn vehicle scheduling allocation each month based on reported vehicle sales, current inventory, projected sales, etc. Each month, Dealers usually meet with their Ford Zone Manager to review the allocation offered for scheduling the following month. A Dealer can accept the suggested allocation per vehicle line or change their commitment. Should a Dealer want more allocation than offered for a vehicle line, they can submit a request for supplemental allocation which will be considered based on total allocation available and commitments from other Dealers in their Zone. There are times when Dealers accept less allocation than offered for a vehicle line which makes that allocation available to other Dealers that may be looking for additional inventory. At other times, a Dealer may want more allocation for a vehicle line than Ford has offered. A supplemental allocation request is how Dealers can get allocation for extra inventory.

A Dealer needs allocation each week for scheduling for each vehicle line. Even without allocation for a vehicle line, Ford is pretty good at trying to schedule retail orders even when a Dealer doesn’t have allocation that week. When a Dealer knows that they don’t have scheduling allocation, it’s always a good idea for them to provide the retail order information (Body Code & Order Number) to their Ford Zone Manager and the Regional Scheduler. The Regional Scheduler can reprioritize the retail order to priority code “01” which basically forces the Ford scheduling system to schedule the unit ASAP unless extreme commodity restrictions prevent the scheduling. When a Dealer doesn’t have allocation, the Ford Zone Manager may try to get the allocation from another Dealer that is willing to give up their allocation.

Ford scheduling is done on Thursday’s but at times scheduling may be carried over to Friday’s due to scheduling, commodity or other issues. Vehicle scheduling confirmations are available on Friday mornings for allocation scheduled on Thursday.

With only a few exceptions (Focus RS, EcoSport, Transit Connect) VIN numbers are generated at the time that an order is “Submitted to Plant” for scheduling. The initial scheduling information will show an order scheduled for a production week. Afterwards, the information will be updated to show production for a particular date. Along the process, the vehicle order status information will be updated along with the ETA (Estimated Time of Arrival) at the dealership.

Years ago, the ordering process was much easier, with few or limited commodity issues to deal with. Ford’s vehicle scheduling was mostly driven by scheduling and building vehicles based on Dealer orders to meet Market demands. For a number of years now, the ordering process has become more complex and time consuming based on the constantly changing commodity issues and restrictions. It is now not uncommon for allocation to roll over to the following week because manufacturing can’t accurately forecast how many vehicles can be scheduled for production. In many cases, it seems that either because of vendor supply issues or other factors that Ford skews vehicle scheduling to higher content models in order to maximize corporate profits rather than scheduling vehicle production to meet Dealers orders or Market demand.

The overall vehicle order process, scheduling and status updates is listed below for reference.

  1. Dealer places order into the USOB (Unscheduled Order Bank)
    • When Dealer has vehicle allocation for scheduling, orders are scheduled based on Order Type, Priority Code and commodity restrictions.
    • Scheduled vehicle orders display as “Submitted to Plant” on the Dealer’s daily schedule status report.
    • Vehicle orders are assigned a VIN number when scheduled except for certain vehicle lines (EcoSport, Focus RS, transit Connect)
    • The initial vehicle scheduling notice will include information for the scheduled week of production. The initial ETA (Estimated Time of Arrival) is usually provided within a few days of the scheduling notice.
    • Dealers can change vehicle specifications for a scheduled vehicle up until the vehicle is “locked in” for production or about two weeks prior to the scheduled build date. Specifications for certain vehicle lines (EcoSport, Focus RS, etc.) cannot be changed once scheduled.
      • Dealers are limited to making 6 changes to scheduled orders.
      • Dealers cannot change Order Type, Body Code, Order Code (Package/Trim Level)
  2. Vehicle order is next updated with a scheduled production date.
  3. Vehicle goes into production and shows as “Sent to Plant” on the Dealer’s daily status report.
  4. Vehicle invoices and window stickers are generated and available to Dealers at about this time.
  5. Dealer’s daily status report shows updates on production status.
  6. Vehicle status updated to “Produced”
  7. Vehicle status updated to “Released” meaning that the vehicle has been released for shipment.
  8. Vehicle is loaded on rail car. Dealer is provided with carrier information (Canadian National, Norfolk Sothern, etc.) along with the actual rail car number.
  9. Vehicle status is updated to show arrival at the final rail destination (Ramp 41/Newark, NJ)
  10. Vehicle is received by the car carrier (Fleet Car, Diversified Automotive, etc.) for delivery to the dealership.
  11. Vehicle is delivered to the dealership.

Once a vin is issued you can track your order status here: https://shop.ford.com/vehicleordertracking#/

If you're not able to access the window sticker via the order status site, you may be able to access the window sticker by going to this link: http://www.windowsticker.forddirect.com/windowsticker.pdf?vin= (add your vin after the "=)

You can also get information on your build through Motorcraft: https://www.motorcraftservice.com/ownerinformation

Dealers have access to the “Vehicle Visibility” application which provides status updates on a 24/7 basis for any vehicle order. The Vehicle Visibility Report (VVR) which is only available once a VIN has been issued will give you important details. Only your dealer is able to run these reports and they're typically updated every Friday. Here's a list of the different status codes that will be on the report:

  • Sent Plant - The VIN has been sent to the plant for Production
  • Body Shop - Everything from the assembly of the body to paint. When it comes out of the Body Shop it is a painted body with doors, hood and trunk lid.
  • Trim Line - This should be called final assembly, this is where the car goes from fully painted car body to a Produced car. This normally takes 1- 5 days depending on when the car goes into Trim. If it goes into Trim late Friday it should roll off the line Produced on Monday or Tuesday.
  • Produced - The car is now built. If it is a base car it will go directly to Released Awaiting Shipment, if it is getting other items it will go to an offsite facility for those (e.g. spray-in bedliner, wheel well liners, etc.)
  • Released to Body Company - Offsite for any specific mods for the build that are not done on the assembly line
  • Returned from Body Company - Car is returned to plant for Release for shipping.
  • Released - Awaiting Shipment - The vehicle has been released from the plant to a carrier and is awaiting shipment. Car is released from the plant for shipment.
  • Received - Awaiting Shipment - The vehicle has been received by a carrier at a ramp location. The yard location may display. The carrier name displays in parenthesis.
  • Shipped Rail - The vehicle has been shipped from the plant via rail. The railcar number displays. The carrier name displays in parenthesis.
  • Shipped Convoy - The vehicle has been shipped from the plant via convoy. The convoy number may or may not display. The carrier name displays in parenthesis.
  • Shipped from Plant - Car was loaded onto a trailer and trucked to another railyard for shipment by rail.
  • Arrived Rail - The railcar/vehicle has arrived at a mixing center or ramp and is available for unloading. The railcar number displays. The carrier name displays in parenthesis.
  • Received - In Transit - Car has been received by a carrier for final delivery to your dealer.
  • Delivered - What can I say, this is the word everybody waits to see. This is the end of the trail for a lot of people that have waited a very long time.

Ugh. Now I know how the dudes waiting for MY22 felt when the MY23 orders opened up. My ‘22 F150 order was just never built before they closed down production for that year. I ordered a MY23 F250 Tremor and got order confirmation in early November but still no VIN. Maybe they’ll cancel my ‘23 order and give me a wicked discount on a ‘24…🥺
 
The slight silver lining is that if my order is late in the 2023s, it will give me a chance to see what the differences are between a MY23 and a MY24 to see if I take the 23 or just wait. The price jump from a 22 - 23 has me concerned about how much prices will go up for 24s. Some people with 22 orders received a had a discount from Ford, but it didn't cover the full price increase. Also, Ford hasn't offered any incentives on Super Duties in well over a year (e.g., factory rebates, financing offers), so demand is still well out pacing supply.

They shouldn't. Last year was different. The manufacturers are pulling back on prices increases right now. Ford has f150 problem with something like 180 day supply on dealers lots. The Superduty is maxed out on MSRP right now and Ford knows it. Despite busy forums and fb groups which make it look like SD is still a hot item in great demand, its not really all that hot. Things will slow down in 24 and hopefully Ford catches up to fix that digital clusterfuck mess on the new gen😜

I hope you're right on this. With hardly any inventory on lots for Super Duties (well, at least those that aren't marked way the F%$# up), it doesn't inspire much confidence that Ford will not continue to try to take advantage of consumers to increase prices. There's a few recent studies that show that quite a few consumer goods companies are artificially raising prices under the guise of inflation when their cost of materials and labor are not increasing at the same rate. We're seeing this in the record profits that these companies are reporting, which they wouldn't have if they kept their profit margins smaller.

Again, i think it’s still a perception thing, and might be related to certain geo areas. The inventory is filling up quick across country, even if on forums it might seem like thats not the case. If you are willing to fly and drive home, a deal can be had without too much difficulty. And it will only get better within the upcoming months.

I see an incoming fordauthority article saying. “2024 Ford Super Duty sales orders break record 250,000 orders from previous years!”

Ya because Ford only delivered 100,000 of those-we all have placed multiple orders from a variety of dealers just to get a chance at getting 1 truck…. And we are still waiting lol

Sorry. Rant over

I am flying to buy a 23 Tremor from Joe on Tuesday. He's been great to work with. They are a big volume dealer and get a lot of allocations.

Good for you, thats the way to do until the local market stabilizes too.
 
I have a dealer who has agreed to do X-Plan on a 2024 F350 KR, really hoping that the MSRP's do not take another huge leap. I placed an order for a 2022 F350 Platinum with Granger on 9/3/2021 that was never built, price was going to be $78,718.02 before taxes and fee's... :rolleyes:
 
I'm guessing the July 17 date is not current but any update on timelines for 24 order bank opening?

As far as I know order banks for 24MY open up on the 17th. Tim Bartz at Long McArthur Ford will be doing an update on the 10th on his you tube channel, and then we'll know more.

Joining the thread since my salesman informed me a couple of days ago my MY 23 Tremor will not be built.

Apparently the order banks are still opening on 7/17 or at least that's what he said. Going to roll the order over for a MY 24 depending price increase. The MY 23 was $100K MSRP.. :unsure:
 
My dealer reached out to me today and advised that Ford will release the order guide on the 17th
.. has anyone else heard the same?

Honestly I’m very confused at the point haha I reached out to two dealers yesterday and a third one today and all three told me the anticipated order bank open is November. I didn’t believe the first guy that told my but after all three said the same thing I’m just flat out lost because everything you read online says the 17th
 
I talked with a few dealerships and they all (at least the ones who knew) said July 17. One salesman (who seemed the most knowledgeable (of 5-6 conversations) said to check the Ford website for new builds on July 17 and to send the build as soon as possible. Hope this helps
