However, selected models/options may be balanced-out earlier due to high demand and capacity shortages. If you do not require immediate delivery, orders can be preferenced for production in April, May or June on most models. The supply of most vehicles is excellent at this time. However, heavy demand (numerous orders received) may cause the supply to be exhausted earlier than anticipated. Orders will be scheduled based on receipt date, so it is best to place your orders immediately, Ford said. Although it is unlikely that orders received after the Estimated Final Order Due Dates will be produced, Ford will attempt to accommodate as many as possible. However, acceptance of an order is not a production commitment. For more information, call 1-800-34-35338 (U.S.) and 1-800-668-5515 (Canada).
