I ordered a NEW 2008 Ford Escape in early March.
V6 4x4 XLT
Nothing out of the ordinary for special parts.
No leather, just cloth and Sirius radio.
They said they would begin making the vehicle in April.
Does anyone know how long it takes to build the truck?
I'm getting antsy!

I think I waited 6 weeks for my last new Ford vehicle. It always seems so much longer when you really want it, though, doesn't it?

As soon as I get it, pictures will follow for sure!
6 weeks huh?
From inital order, or after they built it?

I think it was from the initial order, but you better check with your salesman to see what the lead time is now. Whatever it is, when you are waiting for that shiny new vehicle, it ain't short enough!

The dealer should be able to get all of the info on the scheduled build, ship, and arrival dates.

They should also be able to e-mail you a PDF of your sticker.

Give them a call and see if they can, and good luck with your new 'scape!

I always buy off the lot. I can't wait for nothing :doh:
I'm learning to do that and buy "used", er...pre-owned/certified. Let somebody else get the first parking lot ding; then I don't have to worry about it.

Thanks for all the replies.I tried to go used but couldn't find a good deal.
Wanted to buy off the lot, but all of the models had an option or 2 missing, couldn't live without!

Update... the dealer says that it looks like delivery will be on April 21...possibly earlier if good fortune permits!

Best of luck with your new escape Meowky. I enjoy my little truck every time it is driven. This is going to work and back or even in my spare time. But i reckon the best sensation is the day of final delivery. That new car smell of cabin interior is still there.
