I ordered a 2022 F350 DRW on August 13. At the time I was seeing on forums that it might take up to 32 weeks to get built. Wasn't really a problem since my target date to have a truck was April 2022.

A few weeks ago I received my VIN and a build date of 12/20. Had a call from the dealer today to tell me my truck is being built this week. If all goes well I could have the truck in early January.

With the ongoing supply chain issues I am seeing posts on Ford forums stating that certain options can delay production beyond the new normal delays or in some cases may not be available at all.

Saw this post on the F150 forum. Poster is a Ford salesman from Iowa.


"2022 F-150 Production Insight - 100+ Order Sample Size I thought I would share this as some insight into what is getting scheduled and what is causing delays for the 2022 F-150s. This is based upon our retail orders and our total order count exceeds 100 units. So this is a good sample size of orders and should indicate what the delays are nationally.

Pros

Tremors - After the long delay, 100% of our Tremors will have vins as of today!
Limited - Suprisingly, 100% of our Limited trucks will have vins today as well!
Total Production - Overall 2022 has gone much smoother than 2021. I think this is a reflection of Ford having a better handle on the chip shortage and a realistic idea on flow of chips for production. While it isn't what anyone would like it to be, i believe manufacturers have a better grasp on what is going on.

Cons

Platinum - These F-150s are our highest demand trim, this combined with the high chip demand has caused this to be our slowest scheduling F-150 with only 12.5% of our overall Platinum demand receiving VINs as of this morning. I would encourage you to step up to a Limited as there seems to be less demand if you'd like to get a nicely equiipped truck more quickly. The other option would be to step down to a 502A F-150 without the Black apperance package.
XLT & Lariat Black Appearance Package - This is on material hold currently. I don't have an ETA for when this will get scheduled, but this is not available ASAP.


XL - 100% Scheduled
XLT - 100% Scheduled (Excluding Black Appearance Package)
Tremor - 100% Scheduled
Lariat 95% Scheduled (Excluding Black Appearance Package)
King Ranch - 10% Scheduled
Platinum - 12.5% Scheduled
Limited - 100% Scheduled

* No XLT, Lariat or Platinum Black Apperance Packages have been scheduled

I drove by my Ram and Chevy dealers today, yes Christmas shopping back and forth. Anyway they had even more trucks on their lots. Just a educated guess each now have 20 trucks. That is 20 more than just one month ago.

Ram seems to be locking up production. I saw like 6 Laramieís on the lot late last week. No Chevys or Fords. Just looking at HD. Seems to be even more Ram 1500ís. Some Ford F150ís. Still little to no Chevyís

In the meantime we continue to visit our rig in the back of the dealer lot every week, check on things, and pretend camping until the truck arrives.



On another note, when i updated the rv dealer on the eta of my truck and picking the rig up the told me i have until may 2022 vice end-of-month 12/21 to move it. Seems the dealer is moving to a newer and larger location next year and as a result there is no rush for me to have to get the rig moved since their inventory is not overflowing.



All i know for sure is that this camper and truck better be worth the wait. I realize patience is a virtue, but covid can kma with all the issues we have with things now a days because of it. Later...
Update 12/22/2021:
Just received an unexpected update from dealer:
Truck in on the ramp at the factory.
HOWEVER, dealer states he has no idea if it is built or not.

Also, dealer has no idea if it is on any kind of hold.
Asked about possible microchip hold and again he had no idea. Said it could happen at any time.
Asked him about a copy of the VVR and that was a negative.

I want to presume it is due to ship soon due to info on shop.ford.com.
Online tracker shows ETA of 1/18/2022. However interesting tidbit shows it went into production YESTERDAY, 12/21 but it was supposed to have BEEN in production since 12/09. I give up trying to figure out what kind of fuzzy math Ford is using for producing these things.
Window Sticker has also not changed

Fingers crossed it gets here sooner than later.

TRUCK SHIPPED TODAY.
Working on finding out about CSX railroad shipping info so I can track it as it makes its way to me here in Florida.
Hoping by mid next month to have it in hand.

We ordered a 2022 F350 XLT SRW on Sep 21 and received it in Redding, Ca on 12-18. The sales rep suggested a few things that could be left off the order that would speed it up--eg. Retractable Running Boards

With 32k on the clock. Flew to baltimore and drove it bacl to vt . I sold it last year with 75k
And got 23k for it. I now have a 3500 ram ctd dually. Its a 2017. I bought it in aug. With 27k on the clock. It has a g56 manual tranny which i love.

My first truck was a brand new 76 Chevy Luv. I got it because I couldn't fathom paying the ridiculous price of almost $9K for a new strip down 1/2 ton. Now here we are 45 years later and I've got my last truck on order. It will cost 10X as much as that first 1/2 ton. Whats the difference. The kids are grown, gone and well on their own. I've retired and the dear wife decided that after 50 years of working construction that I'm worth getting whatever I want. Gotta love her. So here I am waiting on a truck priced for more than many houses I've owned and a new travel trailer on order priced thru the roof also. She says go for it, it's only stuff and it can all be sold somewhere down the line. Live a little.

Just my two cents. Life can be short, enjoy what you can, when you can with the one that you love.

12/27/2021 Truck Shipment Update


Finally got info on my F350 shipment from FORD SD plant in KY, from the dealer this morning on the CSX railroad car it was shipped on. Actually sent me a screenshot of my truck's VVR.
Do not think he liked the tone of my text message...been a long, aggravating, info-lacking 6 months waiting on this truck to get DONE. No particular person or organization to point a finger at, but communication between FORD - Dealerships - and Customers sucks and the lack of anyone taking charge and making an effort to fix it is seriously lacking.

Called the CSX Railroad info line this morning and they said it was headed to Baldwin, FL today.
Just called them back this evening and they said it arrived in Baldwin, FL this evening around 6:30!

Now, it goes East to the rail yard in Jacksonville, FL then onto a transport truck to the dealer here in St. Augustine.

I'll call them back in the AM and see if anything has changed.
It would be great to have this thing by the time I go back to work next week so we could finally get a camping trip done in our new Alliance sometime in January, but I'm not holding my breath.
We'll see...

One more hurdle crossed.


*Bill*

We were able to find a 2022 RAM 3500 Longhorn Limited in the color and interior that we were looking for, or I should say it found us. We started the search at a local dealer, same one we purchased our 2015 from, and it was like talking to a wall, didn't have it, couldn't get it and wasn't interested in ordering it...ok? The RAM website build & find located several close matches within 150 miles. When I contacted them it seemed they were all already sold but I did leave my contact info in case something came available or a deal fell through. Within a couple of weeks one of the dealers called with the exact build, engine, color, interior packages that came available about 1 1/2 hours away on their lot. Everything except signatures was done over the phone and the truck was ready when we got there. We were maybe on the lot an hour signing paperwork and walk through of the new truck. I was hesitant in leaving my contact information with car dealers all over Texas when this started because the last thing I need is more spam but it seems to have worked out in this case. It's the same as how a dealer would locate the vehicle you were looking for except they no longer offer that service. Like everything else going on now, it's a different way of doing business.

More of a lurker and learner, but thought Iíd throw my first post in on this thread. Ordered 10/8, took delivery today. 2022 Ram 2500 crew, 6-4 bed, 2WD, Bighorn, 5th wheel prep, gasser. Good payload and towing numbers was the goal since we currently tow around 7800 pounds less than 5000 miles a year.Three months was quicker than I expected, thanks to a rather simple build. Love it so far, and loved my 2019 1500 also! And now to find our fifth wheel... It never ends

Ram seems to have upped their game a bit. Build times are getting shorter as well as deliveries. Mine is somewhere on a train now, due to the dealer @ 02-03-22

Congrats @shoozy on your truck!
