I placed an order for 2022 escape phev December 1, 2021. No response from Ford on build date. Does anybody know if Ford is building them. I live in Florida which is a desert for PHEVs.

I ordered my 2022 Escape SE PHEV 9/28/21 and it was delivered on 1/19/22. My build might have taken some extra time because I was caught between the 2021 and 2022 model years. Ford sent me several emails during that time to inform me of its production progress.

I ordered my 2022 PHEV on Nov. 12th. It was built on 12-23 and I took deliverly from the dealer on Jan. 7th. Ford did keep me updated VIA Email on the build date and the ship date. So far, I have the only PHEV that my dealer has delivered in an area of about 100,000 people.

how long did it take you to even get an order confirmation email from Ford? i submitted an order on a SE PHEV through my dealer 3 weeks ago and still haven't even gotten the Ford email. my dealer just says there's nothing we can do but wait on Ford to process it whenever they get around to it.

My dealer salesperson received an Email within 10 days with a tentative build date. That build date was changed (moved up) the next Monday and again the next Monday. I never received any notifications direct from Ford. All communications came thru the sales person.

Could just be my salesman trying to get me to buy two cars from him (lol) but he says Ford finally got back to them about not getting even an order confirmation email. He says they indicated the lead-times on the hybrids could now be up to a year due to the chip shortage. He offered to put me into a vehicle they have in-transit and then trade it in on my PHEV order when it arrives (along with paying dealer fees, taxes, etc. again lol).

I know they had a couple weeklong shutdowns at the Louisville assembly plant and I imagine the Windsor border blockade is now impacting manufacturing the hybrid engine but i hadn't heard elsewhere about such long delays. If true it would seem like they were deprioritizing the Escape Hybrids to use limited chips on potentially more profitable vehicles.

Update: started looking around for other options just in case a deal we couldn't turn down popped up. We lucked into such a deal on a 2021 SE non-plugin Hybrid that was technically a repair loaner but effectively a demo as it was only used by a dealership employee waiting a long time on parts for his Bronco. Just 931 miles on it and although not our preference of colors, it's in pristine condition.

After $2k in manufacturer rebates and X-plan pricing it came to ~$26,800 after taxes/fees but before trade-in. 0% financing for 60 months with $0 down in a time of elevated inflation to boot.

We still have a refundable deposit check they haven't cashed on our original PHEV order just to keep our options open. However, I'm skeptical the additional gas savings on the PHEV is going to have a short enough payback period to justify trading in the HEV on the order. The tax credits on the Escape PHEV would have to get bumped to $8,500 as proposed, there be a manufacturer rebate at time of delivery and we get an outstanding trade-in value on the HEV.

All that's to say for those of you waiting on orders it couldn't hurt to keep hit refresh on a car inventory aggregator once a day to see if there's an option on an Escape hybrid you just can't turn down.

I live in Ontario. Ordered a 2022 Ford Escape hybrid first week of February and received a serial number two weeks later. Have not heard anything else since then. Was told it could take 3 to 6 months. 😏

I'm in Chicago. Just ordered a 2022 Escape Titanium PHEV on Friday 3/25. Got the order confirmation email right away, but nothing else.

I have a Bronco Sport First Edition as well, so I'm very familiar with the long wait in the abyss that comes next.

Once it gets scheduled and assigned a VIN things usually seem to start happening faster. My sales rep said the Mach-E and Bronco got big pushes in terms of production prioritization last year, so all of the other models were being prioritized this year. If that's the case, maybe it won't be that long of a wait, but I'm not holding my breath.

I ordered a PHEV on 3/3 and got the email right away. My dealer has had 2 on order from Jan and Feb, and as of earlier this week, nothing scheduled for them...likewise me as well. Looking at the Blue Oval Forum, I note that Retail Escape Orders may be selected during May...maybe sooner(?). Also note that after 3/31/22 no longer can order a 2022 Escape.

Ordered 2022 PHEV Escape 1/19/22. Email from Ford stated my Escape is scheduled to be built the week of April 25, 2022. Was also given a VIN. No word on delivery date, but expect an early May date.
We ordered our 2022 Escape PHEV Titanium on 01/06/2022 and have not received a build date or VIN.
We did receive an email stating they were waiting for parts dated 03/18/2022. We’re hoping to here something soon.

I also received and email stating there were "production delays" on 3/18/2022. My order was also a Titanium. Pretty much with everything except the sun roof. It might be the options you selected that's causing the holdup.
