Just got word that my aviator is on the lot, supposedly only took 1 day from shipped to being there. Picking up tomorrow!
Congrats.

I've always been curious as to what the difference is between ordering a vehicle and a special order? When you order a vehicle, you pick the options that you wish to have in it. So what is a 'Special order' then? View attachment 13996

Hi Peter. Whether called "Ordering a vehicle", or "Factory ordering a vehicle", or "Special ordering a vehicle", or "Retail ordering a vehicle"...etc. etc. they all mean the same thing.

Personally, my experience has always been that it is described as "Factory ordering", so that is the term I use. But again, they are all the same.

Good luck.

Guys, I think you all missed my question. Has anyone heard of an aviator being shipped to Texas while still being listed as in production? It was shipped 5/3 and no one can tell me why it's in Texas or how long before it's sent to me in Maryland.

Do you have actual confirmation that it is actually in Texas? It wouldn't be the first time the tracking system was wrong.

Seems to me even if the vehicle did go to Texas, it was shipped 1-1/2 months ago. You would think by now someone would have figured out the mistake and it would have been corrected. If it went to the wrong dealer, that dealer probably would have inquired with corp ops to find out why they got it and where it actually belongs and sent it on its way.

This story could have all kinds of scenarios and go in many different directions. :confused:

I agree, I wanted to make sure no one had heard of this before I pressed the dealer to do more investigating.

Could also be as simple as a fat finger entry somewhere. Maybe when entering in a VIN# or order number. Maybe that info was keyed in wrong and what is being displayed and communicated (the vehicle in TX) is correct, but that is actually not your vehicle.

My blend date was 5/20 and it's still showing in production. Is yours a 2023? Last I saw, production for 2022s ends 6/26.

Hi Imcguire. In the current manufacturing and shipping environment, there is absolutely no way to tell. All we can do is have patience, wait and periodically check with our Dealer rep and Lincoln Concierge if we don't hear anything.

Good luck.
