What I've gathered from this forum (I'm sure others will chime in if I'm wrong):
*Below the window sticker blue box is a box with a date on it (mm/dd/yr format). I'm told that's the 'order date' for the truck. Not the 'I'm finished being built date' but the date the truck was formally ordered to be built.
*I've seen others mention that the actual Build Date typically lags the Order Date by 1 or 2 or ? weeks.
*Back in the day when I could get into FordEtis (don't think us average Joe's can do that anymore), with the VIN number you could access very detailed vehicle summary info, including the actual Build Date. For example, my previous ride was a 2016 Screw with a window sticker order date of 12/21/2015. The FordEtis Vehicle Summary Report showed an actual Build Date of 1/7/2016 (it was in European date format of 07.01.2016 as I think Etis headquarters is actually in Dagenham England).

You can still get into Etis, you just have to register and and change your password every 3 days. Etis
