2015 Ford F-150 Customer Orders Delayed Until February
Did you put in your order for the new aluminum 2015 Ford F-150? If so, you may be waiting a bit longer to join the Overlord of Truck Mountain in its court.
Automotive News reports all fleet and some retail consumers who put their orders in early will be waiting until February 2015 for delivery, according to a leaked dealer memo issued August 20.
The delay is due to the automaker ensuring the launch of its newest truck will go better than when the 2013 Lincoln MKZ stumbled out of the gate early last year, as explained in the memo:
We understand the desire to get the customer units as quickly as possible, but do not want to compromise our commitment to quality for the sake of a few additional weeks of delivery.
Those who are waiting until the F-150’s showroom arrival will have better luck, as all 3,000 of the Blue Oval’s dealers will receive a handful or two of the new pickup near the end of the year, with the first pre-production units expected to roll off the line near the end of October.
