Yeah, I got this email earlier today as well. I put in a reservation as soon as it was open. I'm most likely canceling since they still don't even have finalized pricing out yet. My biggest reason for buying one was I wanted a pickup but didn't want something slow like every other pickup on the market. I put in an order for a TRX a few weeks ago instead.

I cancelled mine when pricing leaked a while back. Decently optioned will be well over $60k easy.

Yeah the way I wanted it would be mid to high 70's. TBH I'd rather pay about that for the last dying gasp of ICE engines and actually get a truck in the next 6 months.

I am going to wait for a 2023 or 24 model as I don't need a 3rd car right now. It'd be nice to have for sure though.

Hopefully in a couple years the chargers get even better too

Fucking finally. I'll build it out tomorrow but I think a Lariat with the options I want is gonna be $75-$80k. If so I'll keep my TRX level 2 + options order.
Yeah, I cancelled my order right when the first round of leaks came out. You can't even get the extended batt on the standard xlt. Guarantee that's over 60k. Watch, it will have cloth seats too. Can't get bluecruise on anything less than the lariat. Ugh. Ford pisses me off with this truck.

Yeah I think leather was only available on the Lariat and up. I wanted the EXT battery as well so Lariat is the starting point. there are so many things you want that are add ons even at the second to top tier it's kind of crazy. Meh. I'm over it.

Most available will be the Lariat with the high trim package - extended battery, pano roof, blues clues

Probably what I'm ordering in blue because I'm fucking 6th on my dealership's list and that dealership isn't in a ZEV state

Ford: We listen to our customers offering leather seats and optional extended range battery on LARIAT trim

Also Ford: LARIAT halogens cuz no one actually drives at night LMAO

Order a Silverado EV as soon as the website allows ordering on the 5th

None of the Lightnings come with halogens
Halogens are available on the F150 ICE because fleets demand that shit and fleets buy the most new vehicles
