Build Time Line

New to the forum so any help would be great!!

Got the VIN today and has a schedule date of 7/19 but what I would like to know is how long will it actually take to build and ship?

What would a dlvd ETA be?
At this point it is anybody's guess. I think best case scenario is late August and more realistic Sept-Oct. Of course this is only a guess but hoping for best case. The chip shortage is the wild card in the equation.

Welcome to the forum! Congratulations on receiving definite information on your order. I could be wrong but to my knowledge you are the first person to announce a VIN and Production date for a MY22 Tremor on the forum. Regardless, before the chip shortage was announced the process from Ford accepting the order to delivery was running upwards of 12 weeks. Nobody from the manufacturing side is promising anything now, just speculating. What they are doing is building the trucks to schedule minus the dash components and holding the vehicles until the required electronics are able to be built and installed. Then they are shipped to the dealers asap.

In the mean time you should explore the forum for ideas, mods, accessories and just to get to know folks around here. There's a ton of great information, links, ideas and even interesting side topics that will help the time pass. There's a lot of good folks more than willing to help answer your questions and learn about your new truck. Here's to a quick and clean delivery of your new truck! ? :cool:
 
Delivery ETA range is basically, from today, 2-12 months. Everyone is hopeful it’s towards the shorter end of that range, but there’s a real chance it’s on the longer end. And almost no chance it’s actually 2 months.

As mentioned above, though, no one knows for sure at this point as it’s so dependent on Ford getting the chip situation figured out.

Another thing to know is the tracking sites for super duty production and delivery are very hit and miss. They sometimes don't get updated until the truck is actually in production or done being built. Also the dates can appear to update and than go blank again or just change back and forth. Don't get worried or frustrated, it's just the way the system works. My tracking page had almost no activity for weeks and then suddenly everything populated in about 48 hours, then the truck was at the dealership a day later. You'll drive yourself nuts if you check it too often. ?
 
My order date for 21 was 2-19...scheduled delivery is now 10/31. I can't see them shipping 22s before they empty the parking lot at the Speedway of 21s. It will take 20K+ chips/modules to do that.
Don’t worry, I read on blue oval that all 21’s that were awaiting chips got bumped to 10/31 as a default date. This is not the actual build date they are anticipating.

Just to clarify these numbers:

1. ~20k is the number of trucks Ford produced in March that were stockpiled. The stockpiles are likely several multiples of that by now. They're likely still building nearly ~30k SRW F250/350's per month. There have been reports of Ford stockpiling vehicles all over the place, hundreds of miles from KTP since the early reports of stockpiles at KMS.

2. These trucks have several thousand microchips in them. We have no idea which suppliers are struggling to get chip allocations for their parts. But it's very likely more than one, or just a single module.

So, it very likely takes millions if not tens of millions of microchips to clear the backlog, let alone produce more vehicles.

The good news is chips are produced in very large numbers.

The bad news is chips take a long time to produce, and chips aren't the only shortages Ford is likely experiencing at this time.
