How much? Any pics? Is it extended batt?
The trucks are piling up in North Carolina. My dealer has 8. GM said "the market has tanked on the EV truck. He cant sell any. One guy returned his truck two weeks old. The guy took an $8K hit. If you buy one, you won't be able to sell it. Plan on keeping a long time.

Well, I am not the person that got on the waiting list just to mark it up and sell it a week later. I am keeping my 2011 F150 for another dozen years or so and plan on keeping the Lightning until the battery just gives out too.
And I am in TN, more than glad to drive to NC and pick one up if really available. But I am picky, I want extended battery and pretty much ever comfort option available.

I paid MSRP of 98,900 for platinum brand new—55 “test drive miles” was all
That's GREAT! There are 3 at my 2 dealerships One is the 2022 for $93;000 and the other dealership is asking $50.000 over sticker so I told him where he could stick it.

I would be partly surprised to see them drop below MSRP in the next 5-6 months, but economy is tanking and housing market is dipping, so maybe

No disrespect but gotta see it to believe it. What's the name of the dealer in North Carolina? We'll google it and look at their inventory.

where do you live. In a 200 mile radius of raleigh there are 30 new for sale. Dealers are marking up hoping to catch a whale. Crossroads in Apex, NC has one with a $10k mark up. Sales mgr said at this point he'd take sticker. Other small dealers are complaining that big dealers are cutting prices. Wait and see.

last week ford dropped top mustang e by 6k. If you can wait a few months, you should see a big drop. in my area, 200 miles around Raleigh, there are 30 on auto trader. The reality, with electricity so high, really no value in the truck but having a novelty. I'll keep my 2018 King Ranch for now.
