Thanks to JLTorres for another data point. SEKSYEscapist and I have ordered SEL Hybrid AWD and it is taking 24 weeks to build (and climbing). You ordered a SEL Hybrid FWD in March and it took 12 weeks to build. You could add 3 weeks to that because they put it back into production. So, perhaps AWD is a commodity that is in short supply. Only other variable is if your dealer gave your order priority. SEK and I are both retail order priority 19, the lowest on a number scheme of 10 to 19. Do you know if your order priority was a 10 or 11 or 12?
Also my vehicle is loaded with every option that is available. I assume there is more than one constraint.

On a related note - I received an email from Ford about my Maverick Truck that was ordered in July of... 2021. High probability that it will not be built for the MY per Ford. No loss there. I have no deposit and no skin in the game.

Now that the JLTorres vehicle has been built, I think the priority number is no longer available. It was my mistake to ask about it.

I agree with SEK that there are more constraints than just AWD. I saw a news article on my iphone from Ford Authority that Co-Pilot 360+ (which is in my vehicle options) is in very short supply. If I can find it, I will add it to this post.

It's been built since 6/8 but my dealer said today that they pushed back delivery to mid August for unknown reasons.

Finally, some good news! SEL Hybrid has been built. 25 weeks from order to build. No email from Ford but the tracking website did work.

Update. Ford email this morning says it shipped. Reasonable, that any backlog/ backup of shipments was worked off during the two week plant shutdown. Also, the window sticker shows a $55.00 credit for deletion of hands free lift gate feature.
