Put in my order Yesterday 7/28 for a Magnetic 6.7L Lariat F350 Ultimate Sport. The Sales Manager at my dealership told me it seemed like Ford was prioritizing retail orders over stock units. He thought there was a slight chance of the order being filled sooner than the 10-12 weeks they normally quote people. Fingers crossed it's some-how fast tracked! I'm not expecting it to show up before October/November though....

From what I'm reading it may be a 2021 model?? How long should I wait to bug them for a VIN#?

Newbie here and gonna be a convert...been running a Cummins for the last 8 yrs. Fun's over though with those Diesels, so Im jumping on the Big Block bandwagon. Was able to swap out a few details on a last dealer allocated 2020 F250 Lariat Tremor this week. Order confirmed 7/28. Based on my findings, Ill be following up for the VIN in the am. I was told 10-14 weeks due to Covid as many others have said, but am hopeful that translates into a September delivery.

Is 10 a good number for priority??

Did your sales person give you your priority #? Or where did you get that? I was given an order # of 4545.... No idea what I can do with this other than maybe use it to reference when I call asking for a VIN.

Its listed on the order print out they gave me.
the lower the number the better but for private customers like us 10 is the best we can have.
if you have a business you can get a lower priority number

So I tried ordering a couple weeks ago, and was told 2020 ordering closed early. You should talk to your dealer again and verify if you have a 2020 or 2021. Also last i saw 2021 ordering opens 17 AUG.
