    Leaked Letter Reveals Delivery Dates For 2015 Ford F-150


    • Planning to do a fleet or special order a 2015 F-150? You'll be waiting a while.

    Automotive News got their hands on a letter that was sent to Ford dealers revealed some of the deliver dates for the upcoming 2015 F-150. The letter written by Ford's distribution planning manager Kevin Giacomini and allocation and commodity manager John Bradley said that the 3,000 dealers in the U.S. will be getting stock towards the end of the year. But if you have special ordered a F-150 or are ordering for a fleet, those trucks will not be heading to dealers till February of 2015.

    “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,” the letter states.

    Also causing this delay is that Ford is staggering the changeover for the F-150 at two of their plants. Starting today, the Dearborn truck assembly will shut down and begin the changeover process to ready itself for the production of the 2015 F-150 later in October. In the meantime, the Kansas truck assembly will keep producing the current model. The Kansas truck assembly will shut down early next year to do its changeover.
