Looking forward to hearing more.  Coopertired is waiting on his Lariat ecoboost 4X4 to be built currently.

Congrats! Looking forward to the updates. I have a reservation but got in pretty late, so I don't expect an opportunity to order one this year.

Interested in this. My company has a trio of "management trucks" at this location that are 6ish years old and these new trucks would be perfect use.

Congrats! 
Are they assigning VINs on those yet? I really wanted to pull the trigger on one but was worried I'll be into 2023 on one

I opted for a 3.5 Lariat that should hopefully be ready in March

It will be interesting to see how this works out.

This kind of vehicle is quite unlikely to go on sale in Europe/Sweden (our driver licence limitations means quite few people can make use of heavier trucks) but I think it is cool to see what happens in the market and how it potentially/eventually can spill over to our markets.

Vins are not getting released yet. I'm really interested to see how the timeline develops.

I didnt put a reservation in for a month or so therefore not expecting a 2022 model but I am excited  to hear your thoughts.  Still hoping to pick up a Pro model in the $40k range.

Reservations I think are a lot crazier than they are leading on. My dealer has orders in for 55 and they are getting one. I have a feeling supply and demand is going to be messed up for a while.

I'm pretty sure Ford had that in mind from the start, from what I'd read the battery supply was limited even before The Great Supply Chain Cluster and their pricing kinda looks like they were banking on the price of batteries continuing to drop - the first year might have been expected to lose money. Nice work on being #1 of 55 :)

Yeah, I mean prices on nicely optioned ones are still significant enough that I think ford is making money right out of the gate. 
 

Ford is making me sign a no sale clause for a year. Which doesn't make me the happiest but I feel like supply will be limited enough that I could still get my money back after a year if I don't like it.

 

 

My bet is those who ordered a Pro will be among the first to receive them.  With the continuing chip shortage Ford will try to build and deliver as many trucks as possible and orders requiring a lot less chips may be prioritized.

What if you hate it in 3 months?  Will Ford buy it back?  Although it's not a bad idea to keep those flipping hit vehicles.

Ford sent me a email today saying early production dates had a automated email sent out with their build week that was inaccurate. My build week on the ford website still hasn't changed though, hopefully the dates still accurate. At this point im not really surprised if my date gets kicked.
