2013 Titanium Order Time

Has anyone ordered a focus in the past few months? I ordered a 5 speed tuxedo black sedan 4 weeks ago. My dealer estimated 4-6 weeks for delivery. Im thinking he is being very optimistic with his times. Not sure if anyone has ordered lately and could share there experience with an ordered focus this close to 2014 orders going in.

Your dealer should have a VIN by now. Probably even a build date.

If the dealer had allocation and got their order placed or modified before the Thursday of the first week it would be scheduled and sequenced right away for a build time roughly 3 weeks out from the date that the car was scheduled for, therefore it would be possible but unlikely that the car would be delivered by the end of the fourth week.

When I ordered my SEL it took about 5-6 weeks from order to delivery, however that was in metro detroit and 1-2 weeks of this was the fact that the dealer didn't have allocation, and they still took a week after the car was built to deliver it to the dealer.

Of course just under 1 year later and I ended up trading the car in for a 2013 ST instead. I didn't get to order this one this time, however it was built the same day my old car came out of the body shop with her new ST spec nose, which I found coincidental.

Hi drtorre,

Congratulations on ordering! I'm happy to track your order for you; just send me a PM with your order number and dealership name/location. I'll provide you with weekly updates as your order progresses through the production process.

Crystal
