My suggestion. Call Ford and ask for an “escalation”. They will give you a case number and a friendly rep will call you back. It seems that status systems update on Fridays. There are multiple systems with status on where the truck last was. While dealer has transport eta this, I heard. There is not a “known” hold but delays in transport and the tracking systems facing the customer is not update. Of course seeing the truck at the dealership will be proof :). Best of lu I to all.

radio silence from my dealer ever since I told them I would not purchase with such a major open CSP. There seem to think Ford is shipping it without resolving the CSP.

Ford Reps in the Lightning Group told me that the Trucks would be rectified at the dealerships. As I understand it we cannot purchase the Trucks until the CSP is resolved. I am waiting on my dealer on the status/location of my Truck.

dealer says it is en route offloaded from train; nothing noted when I check online.
@ncollins516 if the Counts truck was on a train to the upper midwest, yours should have been on the same run MN/WI, have you talked to your dealer about the location of your truck?

The tracker still shows this:
Ford F-150 Lightning 🛠 8/7/2023 Lightning Build Week Group (MY2023) 1695067400269

unfortunately the Dealer does not have any updates in September right now. It's anyone's guess on what's updated and not these days..

Good news - still waiting for an update from my dealer.
In my case - it looks very likely I like many others have built trucks in limbo. I hope Ford will come out with a definitive statement on the "delays" soon.

Talked to ford directly again yesterday, they told me rail had received vehicle ( basically I took that as notice it's ready to ship as she said that tells her it's definitely built) however that notice was issued August 18th. She stated it was at the ramp in Dearborn which is the first time I had heard that language used, wish I could tell if that's different than where the vehicle has been the last month or not). I also asked if once it was received by rail was it in their hands or still ford and UAW employees, she put me on hold and then came back and said they didn't have that info. Ugh different dealer 80 miles from me has same truck different color on lot, really like my dealer and don't want to leave them holding the bag, but also don't want to get caught in UAW strike purgatory either
