Yep. The auto-generated 45 day email which means.... absolutely nothing.
Has anyone on here received a scheduled for production email for a regular Ranger yet? Since I ordered last June, I have only received one email stating the above. It's been 75 days now and absolutely nothing. Just wondering if anybody here has actually been scheduled with a standard XLT or lariat ranger. Cheers.

Yes about two or three weeks ago there were non-Raptors getting scheduled.

Yes, my XLT was scheduled several weeks ago.

You can't even get the new tacomas yet, plus you can't order exactly what you want, you get whatever the factory sends. Also, Nissan is discontinuing the Titan in 2024, who knows how long the Frontier has left.

Those auto emails go out to people who are not scheduled yet. It is what it is.
Nissan is not killing the Frontier, they're being smart by killing the Titan, a vehicle that should have been axed years ago.

'21 4runner - '24 RR on order
Because it's a blanket statement.
I think I understand the concern that this statement could be used to cover for any delays, regardless of origin, but are we expecting to be notified of all parts limiting production for specific models?

Or something else?

If Ford is having trouble securing specific parts I’m not sure there’s an easy answer. If they do not have a supply chain issue, then that’s a whole other story.

You would be surprised at how much of the global supply chain is still disrupted. And if it isn’t disruptions, it’s backlog. If you don’t believe this is still going on, you most likely don’t work in any manufacturing adjacent industry.

Quick anecdote: my company is unique in that we ship a certain kind of product type in a crate. Our competitors ship in cardboard. Our customers love this because they can stack crates and gain floor space. We had a slowdown on shipment for these, not because of the product. Not even because of the wood. No, it was the screws to put the crates together. We won’t buy from China so we were short on them and couldn’t ship. Take that concept and apply it to a vehicle with thousands of individual parts from dozens of suppliers. Those dozens of suppliers rely on a dozen more suppliers who rely on raw materials from several more suppliers. Each step in the chain has issues with logistics, downtime, worker shortages, and other setbacks. It only takes one late shipment of a subcomponent to cause the whole house of cards to teeter. This is the joy of Just In Time manufacturing and you can thank Jack Welch of GE for starting that trend in the US.

We understand it has been too long since you last heard from us. Today, we wanted to give you an update on the status of your Ranger LARIAT order.

Unfortunately, continued supply chain issues are slowing things down. We’re working diligently to try and reduce these delays.

Now here’s our promise to you. We know that waiting for delivery of your Ford is far less fun than actually driving it. So, we commit to updating you as soon as we can, at least once every 45 days regarding your vehicle’s production schedule status. No matter what.

Thank you for your patience and understanding
Word for word as the one I received except mine is a Raptor

It’s been my experience that just in time inventory is always late, the two most hated items in a corporation . Inventory and Employees,

Here's my update-once again, today I received the "supply chain problems so no Ranger for you email". Only the Second email in 8 mos. Complete joke. Ranger is not a high-demand vehicle, at least not compared to Bronco/Maverick. Hard to understand.

That really does put things into perspective. It is kind of crazy to think 3 years ago, virtually none of these issues existed (at least not at this scale), and just one outbreak made it so we couldn't go back to the way things were.
