    Today, Ford dealerships received communication from the mothership about production expectations for the 2015 Mustang and the 2015 Ford F-150. While the Mustang is currently in production, it appears that the F-150 custom orders won’t be in dealership and customer hands until early next year.

    According to the document, production will begin in Dearborn in October. Production at the Kansas City plant will begin in Q1 of 2015. It appears Ford expects retail ordered trucks to not appear at dealerships until February 2015. Initially, some dealerships expected the trucks by the end of the year.

    1. There’s no way I’d order a new generation F150- you just know there’s going to be the inevitable production issues, problems, glitches, and recalls with the new designs and materials. It’s a classic case of it being better to wait a year for them to sort out the bugs and let somebody else do the beta testing.

    2. They used the same strategy for the release of the first F150 Ecoboost for 2011. Dearborn is delayed “again” for the first consumer test pilot program. Once they “think” their complaints will be less than 25% they will start building them in Kansas.

      EcoBoost, 6.0 Diesel, Twin-I-Beam and EPAS, let the customer test it in the field. That is Ford and that is how they roll.

    3. I cannot think that a company as sound as Ford would roll out anything for the consumer to test… especially something like the best selling vehicle line ever. I am very much looking forward to seeing the new F-150 hit the lot as I know its going to be an awesome vehicle for many, many people and that is shy I am a bit disappointed I cant get them any sooner! However I know when it arrives it will have been worth the wait 🙂

    4. Yes, I ordered on 2015 King Ranch on 7/31. Its disappointing that SOLD orders >$57k will be AFTER unsold orders for dealer stock. very disappointing.

    5. Yes and no. If your dealer entered your order as a stock order you will get your custom order by the end of the year.

    6. Reason is Ford already has plenty of stock. 271,000 F150s are in inventory at the start of August, KCAP is still making around 20K/mth through to December..

      Unless you plan on selling 371,000 F150s in 5 month, I think Ford will have plenty of stock even without any new F-150’s.

    7. Late this year according to my Ford rep means shipping starting last week of December, so very few dealers will even have one before January anyway.

      Secondly for those questioning the stock before retail, there is a reason for this. Likely there will be production line issues with the early builds, usually is, that’s why they build and hold the new models, find any issues and correct them before shipping. This shouldn’t really come as a surprise. What is odd is that they also seem to continue to worry about building more (without the found issue) instead of correcting the ones that were already built. These get pushed to the side and fixed when they darn well feel like it. We had an early build 2013 Fusion that didn’t arrive until almost 6 months after it was built. This is the reason they don’t start scheduling sold orders until the “OK to ship” has been given.
