So is there a rough estimate of start of build to delivery yet? I've never really done a car preorder before so not sure what's normal assuming no parts delays. 6 weeks? 8?

I've got to bone up on how to watch the live production video. I hate to sound skeptical, but is it true there's a way to do this?

Oh that would be neat - where'd you hear about that?

Somewhere on The Internets. That's the problem.

I think this forum has more Ford truck experts than most other places.

8 weeks is a good estimate. About 1 month to build it, 1 month for shipping. 6 weeks might be possible if you are lucky, 10 to 12 weeks if there are issues.

Based on my personal experience with the Mach-e, as well as general trends for it. You might save some time in shipping since it is coming from the US vs. Mexico, but I wouldn't put money on it.

This is where I belong. I don't know what to expect from delivery. My ICE F150 sat after production but I'm hoping this rolls quicker.

Anyone in this group get a notification on the build date or did you all just check the ford web page?

No notification - I had been checking daily.

I've been checking twice-weekly because I heard that Ford stopped sending out e-mails, and that the target production week on some of their other models hadn't been proven accurate.
