Options for Reserving Your Next Ford in Jacksonville

A new vehicle is a significant expense, so you shouldn’t have to settle for less than an ideal fit. Fortunately, Ford’s extensive roster represents many of the most popular segments, from versatile SUVs and hardworking pickups to exhilarating pony cars. With a diverse selection of nameplates, powertrains, trims, and options, the Ford lineup offers configurations to suit a wide range of needs and preferences, including exciting and eco-friendly hybrids and EVs. And at Duval Ford, we make it easy to reserve a new Ford model tailored to your specifications.

Three Ways to Get Your Perfect Ford

Duval customers can choose from three ordering categories when reserving their next vehicles. Which is right for you depends on certain criteria such as current availability and your expected/desired time frame. Here’s a quick overview of your three options.

Incoming Inventory

At Duval Ford, we’re fortunate to have several outstanding new Ford models ready to test drive or take home, with even more on the way. If what you’re looking for isn’t currently in stock, its arrival may be just around the corner. By reserving from our incoming inventory, you’ll get the exclusive first opportunity to buy or lease the vehicle when it arrives. Just let us know your desired model, trim, or feature, and we’ll see if it’s included in an upcoming shipment. There’s no obligation to purchase, and your reservation deposit is fully refundable if you decide to go a different direction. Incoming vehicles offer the shortest delivery time frame of all vehicles not currently on our lot.

In-Production Inventory

In addition to our in-stock and imminent-arrival selection, we have many more models allocated to our Jacksonville Ford dealership by the manufacturer. These examples are not currently in transit to our location but will be in the near future. While in-transit models have already been produced and are currently headed our way, allocated vehicles are those in a queue waiting to be built. In general, the manufacturer makes details of these models available to us in advance. We may also be able to request a configuration adjustment to an allocated vehicle that hasn’t entered the assembly line. The delivery time frame for a vehicle that has yet to be built can range from a few months depending on circumstances like queue position, change requests, and supply chain availability.

Custom Ordering

A custom order is the best way to get exactly what you’re looking for if you don’t mind a longer wait. It allows you to specify your preferred configuration down to the minute details. In practicality, aside from the time frame, the process isn’t much different for the customer than ordering from our in-production allocation. And while a custom order is usually the slowest option, opportune circumstances can potentially allow for an accelerated delivery time frame.

A New Ford On Your Schedule

From initial model research to the final signature, the car-buying experience can be a lengthy affair. Duval Ford offers a variety of resources that allow you to complete the steps at your pace. Our website can facilitate the process entirely online. Or, if you prefer a more personalized but still remote experience, we can work with you by phone or email correspondence. And of course, we’re happy to help you through the process in person at our dealership, whether you can test drive similar vehicles, view color options, and try out certain features.

If you have any questions about the latest Ford models, available financing opportunities, or the reservation process, please feel free to contact us or stop by our Jacksonville Ford dealership at your convenience. It will be our pleasure to assist you.
