Apparently someone mentioned that we Canadians don't get that cool email notification stuff, only our Amerifriends do. Dealer confirmed as well...when they hear something, they will be in touch with us.
Toronto. Purchased incoming dealer stock today. Dealer said it shows as built. Delivery sometime in Nov. I searched every ford dealer in Ontario's website to see what stock they had coming, this one had the exact combo. white, xl, awd, no options.
It surely seems so. I still haven't got a build date.
The thinking is that the EPA rating testing has not been done yet and if you look at the window stickers on the units that have been built, you'll see " Not for sale" written across the window sticker. So if I was Ford, I'd be building units that could be sold now to get the product out there, then once the EPA finally got off their asses and assigns a rating, I'd start building the hybrid models like mad.
