Est Delivery Date?

It's been a long adventure and it's nearing the end.

I started a thread a while back titled "Tuxedo Black Woes". I ordered a Tuxedo Black Titanium just over a month ago and if you recall, my dealer told me that the color was changed to flat black. I was heart stricken . But then, something amazing happened. I found my window sticker and sure enough, it says Tuxedo Black. My dealer said he won't believe till he sees it. So, last night my ETIS information became available and that too, says Tuxedo Black.

So, on to my question, is it a safe bet to say the car is truly Tuxedo Black? And if so, when should I expect delivery? I'm located about 30 minutes north of Detroit and my dealer still has no information for me.

Thanks guys!

Damn ignit dealers, to be honest it could still not be Tux black. They may just have not had another name to put in for the color they put on it, on the other hand I don't know that Ford would sell a flat black car other than the special RS500 that came out.

Either way good luck.

That crossed my mind but I'm pretty sure they would have just used 'Black' instead of 'Tux Black Metallic' on the window sticker, otherwise it's false advertising. And Ford was proud to introduce paint that paint so I'd be surprised to see them throw its 'brand name' around like that. That at least makes me feel better. For example, Sonic Blue already appears on Ford.ca, so I'm sure they have replacement paints and names ready.

I think this question could best be answered by one the Ford employees over at Blue Oval Forums. Some of those guys really know their stuff regarding assembly. Anyway, hope it really is Tux black.

I ordered red candy SEL Hatch on 5/18. No word yet from dealer on build date, delivery date or anything. I hope it comes as quick as Titanium12. Salesman said 8 to 10 weeks.

I ordered mine 4/19, it was built 5/20 and is now headed my way. It is suppose to arrive in Atlanta on 6/4 but then it needs to get from the rail station to my dealer. I am hoping to pick it up 6/6.

Wow, my car was ordered the last week of April and I have yet to receive any information at all, no build date, build week, Vin# or anything. The only thing the dealer told me on May 17th was that I had to switch colors because kona was unavailable
