While the target date for ordering was delayed into winter, Ford said from the beginning that manufacture and deliveries would start in spring '22 - and they are. Spring starts in 10 days, and the earliest build dates I've seen are just a few weeks later. You're not seeing trucks being delivered yet because they were never planned to be ready this early. Give it another 6 weeks or so, and you'll start hearing about the earliest deliveries.So Ford told us to reserve a Lightning last spring, that we would order our truck in the fall and start receiving trucks early this year.... So where's the trucks?
Well, there's your problem.My reservation was 6/21/21.
They never in June told us we were too late for a 2022.Well, there's your problem.
There are still many who made their reservation on 5/19 who haven't gotten to order yet, myself included. I was invited to order, but not until Wave 4 when the model I wanted - XLT+/SR - was already sold out. So I deferred my reservation to 2023.
They had more reservations within 24 hours of the reveal than they were going to be able to fulfill for the 2022 model year, and you didn't even reserve until a month later.
But they did! Ford announced the following reservation numbers, all before you even reserved:They never in June told us we were too late for a 2022.
Ford usually does a better job of letting buyers know about their products availability. I'm a long time customer of their products and am disappointed by the huge hype / no delivery / bait and switch because you want a truck this year B.S.
