Stupid question but I’m still new to all this. I just got my window sim ticket today and see a bunch of people talking about a “Blend date”. Can someone lmk what it is and where to find it?

It's at the top of the window sticker, a little to the left of the center. Mine says "320221207. The word "BLEND" appears underneath it. I don't know what the first digit ("3") means, but the digits after that are "2022" which is the current year, followed by "12" which is the month, and "07" which is the day. So, my "Blend Date" is 12-07-2022, or December 7, 2022 (Two days from now). Hope this helps.

The "Blend Date" is the day your body is mounted to the chassis; once those two major subassemblies are mated, it continues down the assembly line as a new vehicle. After that, your vehicle may have accessories added to it, such as a roof rack, or graphics that have to be applied. Once the "Blend Date" is over, you can expect to hear that your vehicle has been built!

I don't know what a "Window sim ticket" is but I assumed you were talking about your window sticker. If you got your window sticker, you've been scheduled for production. The word "BLEND" appears in tiny type at the top of the window sticker. I hope this helps.

@RagnarKon is the man! He knows a LOT more than me. He's got insider information and real-world experience, so I trust him implicitly. A great resource to say the least. That's what makes Bronco Nation so great; it's full of people who want to help others out!

@RagnarKon @BuckYeah thank you guys so much for your help! The visual was awesome and definitely confirmed that I don’t have a blend date on my window sticker! Is that weird? Hopefully it gets updated😅

About 2 days after your Blend date your modules will populate, that is basically your baby has an active brain.

Do you have any numbers along the outside of your window sticker at all? And what color is the background of your sticker?

I'm not familiar with Sport window stickers, but my uneducated thought is that the Sport may not have a blend date because it is a unibody construction. The guys can correct me.

well either way, I'm glad you asked this. I never learned much of this process since I got my Bronco used, so it's good to learn it alongside the community.

OHHHhhhhh Bronco Sport. My bad I’m dumb.

Harmosillo window stickers don’t have blend dates on them. Not sure why to be honest… they used to. But if you look at any vehicle originating from Harmosillo Assembly (Maverick, Bronco Sport, etc.) they won’t have blend dates.

The closest you have is an invoice date which is (usually) a week before the blend date.
