Got some intel from someone on the line. 5400s went through yesterday (07/15). I’m still trying to confirm how many they are building per day - somewhere between 300 and 500. Now, my number is 8198, so if they are building 500 per day, mine should be built on the 20th, which is also the exact blend date in my window sticker. Obviously, this is in a perfect world and doesn’t account for any assembly problems with your specific vehicle or shortages on your build, but I think this should provide a rough timeline and also suggest that the blend date is actually when the build completes the line.
My wife thinks I’ve gone mad. I’m beginning to think she might be right.
Blend date - 07/20
Number in line - 8198
Special order date - 07/12 - still don’t know what that means
