On another site I read a post by someone who said that their Ford dealer told them that scheduling of all Escapes (Hybrid & Gasoline) have been delayed approximately one week, but his dealer expected for the scheduling to be done within the next week or so. My order is in the system as well and ready to be scheduled as soon as Ford begins scheduling. I wouldn't expect to see many prior to the end of July or early August. Since I didn't order mine until May 8th, I don't think I'll see it until around August 15th.

I'm not so much interested in when delivery is expected as I am in knowing if your order has been scheduled.

According to this article in the Kansas City star, it sounds like the plant where the Ford Escape Hybrid is built is working overtime while the rest of Ford either has or is gettng ready to cut back on production of trucks and SUVs:

I just tried to order an 09 at Rick Hunt Ford in Warrenton, VA. The salesman told me they won't be able to take orders until August. What's the deal?

That's wrong. My dealer entered my order on April 20, exactly three days after first day ordering opened up.

I encountered the same thing with some dealers in VA. Most of which are trying to sell '08s. My sugestion, find another dealer. Ted Britt in Fairfax, Purvis in Fredericksburg or Richmond Ford in Richmond.
#376 of 712 Any "hard production/delivery" dates yet 2009 FEH?

Just wanted to see if anyone has received any more definitive information on delivery re. orders for the 2009 FEH. Just FYI. I placed my order on a 2009 Limited FWD, (no Nav, w/ Step bars) on 5/7/07 here in the SF Bay Area. Priced out on the X-Plan at apporx $29,400. Have not received any info yet on delivery.

Nope. My 2009 FEHL was put into the order system on April 20, 2008. It's still marked as "clean, but not scheduled". I'm monitoring www.kansasCity.com's Claycomo (the place where the FEH and FEHL are built) RSS feed to see if there is any more news about the UAW folks working overtime and Saturdays to catch up, but haven't seen anything new/relevant for a while now.
