For me... Having preordered 9 minutes in and not getting a 22, that "stay the course" with hefty price increase is an insult to injury.
They're making everything they can. They would love to sell you one I'm sure. They've been pretty clear that demand has far outpaced their initial predictions.

I think you miss what my peeve is, I preordered 9 minutes in and then had to watch people who preordered even more than a day later get the my22 at a cheaper price. What point is there to a "line" when there is no line.

I get it and I’m in the same boat as a day one reservation holder. The social-media YouTube ”influencers” and dealer VIPs all got to jump in front of us. I don’t like it but I also expected it. Im just a working class stiff. The rich, pretty and influential always get first dibs.

Sorry I did not mean to get people upset. This email my be because I Called Ford a month ago and told them I had never heard or got and email from them so they sent me and email telling me to verify my email by clicking the link so I click it every day for about a week. But the email verifies that orders are about to open.

Thank. I was beginning to think I was the only one. I hope you are right. I am driving to LA to give my grandson my old F150. I wanted to wait till I got my new truck but I just can’t make him wait any longer.

I think they know they'll have a lot of very depressed customer when invites start going out and no PROs or even XLTs are then available - trying to 'fish' to get your idea of if you will be willing to 'change' your choice, and then if so, maybe give you an EARLIER invite if you do.

I told them I wanted an ER XLT. Truth is only IF I can get it under contract this year, otherwise a Pro zero options (but the August orders probably used up whatever allocation they had for the budget truck. )

Everyone but me probably already knows this but the best way to track your order, at least once you are scheduled for production, is this link: https://shop.ford.ca/vehicleordertracking I was scheduled for and "In Production" the week of 8/22/22 according to My Account at Ford.com. But it appears production didn't really start until last Monday.

When you filled this out did you tell them you have another reservation for a gm or ravin.
I got the survey and told them I had another reservation for a Silverado EV.
I also rated my Ford reservation experience as "poor"

I was just thinking maybe Ford was going to send reservation order out to people that have other reservation first I told them I do not have any other reservation and I don't.
