The order bank opens 3/20/06 for the 2007 Super-Duty.
Job1 first day of production, is set for 5/15/06

That said, I am sure the 6.4L twin turbo WILL NOT BE GOING INTO THE 1st 07 production run.

Same as when the 2003 (Model year) production of the 6.0L didn't happen till dec/02-jan/03. We had 7.3's coming in thru Jan & Feb.

Job #1 used to be quality. It is now job #37. And the middle numbers of 2-36 is the TSBs to get it correct.

Randy,

No disrespect here, but that just doesn't sound right. The reason I say that is because why would Ford open the order banks so early unless a big change was coming?

They openend the order banks early for the '99 SD in early '98. That was the year the body style completely changed, the 7.3L got a significant power bump, the trans changed to a 4R100, and the F-450/500 4x4's were introduced.

Don't you think the order banks opening early signal a BIG change, like the 6.4?

Like I have a clue about this but... If they are planning to take orders on 07's with a 6.4L in a couple of months, wouldn't they have showed one at NAIAS? All we got out of that show was the SuperChief and that wasn't very exciting. This is totally conjecture, but I'd think Ford would make a bigger deal out of a new body style and engine and would have shown it publicly in Detroit last week. :shrug:

Just feels like if orders and production are so close, we'd have seen more of the truck officially by now.

btw, been reading for months in anticipation of an early 6.4L order and this is my first post. Great forum, hope to contribute when I know what I'm talking about.

Welcome to the Garage TJ, and you have good points!

Right now, all we can do is speculate. Anything can happen! Its nice to talk about it... And its nice to learn we can order an 07 so soon. Its hard to talk about this since its all speculaation, but i think good news is coming soon!

None taken!

Now someone needs to tell us why Ford is launching their '07 Superduty months earlier than they normally would.

Maybe it's a new hood ornament!
