Special Orders of 2015 Ford F-150 May Not Arrive Until February

Ford Sends Letter to Dealers Detailing Scheduling and Availability

Aug 22, 2014
Many buyers, both retail and commercial, are eagerly awaiting the arrival of the all-new 2015 Ford F-150. However, those that put in a special order may have to wait until after the first of the year to take delivery of their new truck. Automotive News is reporting that Ford sent a letter out to its dealers explaining the delivery schedule of the new truck. Dealers have been promised that they will receive a limited stock of the new truck before the end of 2014 but that any customer special orders may not arrive in dealers until February.
The article explains there are three order “pipes”: a stock order, a retail (or customer-specific) order, and a fleet order. Stock orders are the so-called “run of the mill” orders of trim levels and configurations that are expected to be most popular. Because of the large number of variations in custom orders, they often have to be put in behind larger-volume orders.
Production of the current-generation F-150 will continue into 2015 as the Kansas City plant prepares for production of the new truck. The first units of the aluminum-bodied 2015 model will come from Ford’s Dearborn truck plant. Many dealers have ordered extra stock of the 2014 model in anticipation of the late-fall 2014 deliveries of the new model.
