Dealers should have recently received an allocation email. My families dealership will be getting 2. Considering they are a small/medium dealer, that is a good thing for everyone on here.

What does this mean?

The first wholesale will be in late October/early November as January Production.
It sounds like the rest is related to this document?

Doesn't sound like a spring delivery to me. Maybe summer. Then might as well be a 2017

I think the important part is that even if your dealer doesn't get allocation, you can still order one through them.

If we are getting 2 as a relatively small dealership, that would put national levels much higher than 2k

how small of a dealership are we talking? How many ST's did you sell? do you think that had anything to do with your allocation?
60 cars a month. No clue on STs but it was definitely a factor

Hmm. Tempted to make a stop at my local dealer soon to see what they say.

Yup... just picked up a 15' Fiesta ST as I don't want to stress over getting one the first year.

Not trying to derail the thread, but how are you liking your FiST?
