Today I was informed the dealer was unable to actually place an order yet and as a result, unable to confirm the MSRP. Ford Canada has a configurator which generates an MSRP, yet they won't allow dealers to order yet? Sounds like a runaround to me. But I'm told GM has done the same thing with Z06 cars this year.

Has anyone had an order confirmation including a firm MSRP from a Canadian dealer yet? If so, I would like to hear dealer names.

Thanks, Jacob

Unless they are trying to tell you they don't have any allocated cars left, it sounds likes a run around. On another thread, people are talking about Canadian orders already scheduled for build.

You might be the only Canadian on here who has been told that. My order was in with voc in-hand in November and I think a few other Canadians had theirs in even earlier. And MSRP is confirmed.

Contact Webb Ford in Vermillion or Medicine Hat Ford. I hear they both have an allocated one available as of a couple days ago.

Sounds a lot like what my dealer told me in November. Order banks opened on Oct 12th. Reach out to Ford Canada Customer Service 1-800-565-3673 have your dealer contact information ready and they will help. I had to do this after visiting my local ford, My Dealer did not have proper info on the RS. After the Call, Ford Canada reached out to my dealer and gave them all the proper information on the RS. You should be able to order at MSRP . After you pull trigger and your deal is done ask for your vehicle order confirmation , Return back to the forum and beg :eek: one of the 3 wise men found in this thread for your order status they will keep a eye on your Build!
Good Luck

The individual responsible for ordering.
When I went in, I asked the receptionist to talk directly with the sales manager having assumed the salesmen would know jack. I was right.

For sure call the number Mike gave you. Once you have your VOC, ensure you get your DORA later on too. Then come join us in the waiting game!

Update: They experienced a problem trying to access the internal "SVT portal" to do the order. Ford Canada will need to correct the problem. Dealer general manager is committed to resolving the issue.

Update2: They fixed their "SVT portal" problem and ordered the car today. I now have an order number and should complete paperwork tomorrow. But given my inherent distrust of car dealerships, I will admit to having doubts about this buying process.

Thank you all for your advice. Now over to the order status thread.
