Order a Silverado EV as soon as the website allows ordering on the 5th
bleh. I just wanted the Lightning as a "fast" pickup option. I put in a reservation during the presentation so I should have a decent spot...hopefully. Maybe I can flip it.

I wonder how Ford is going to handle that.

It sounds like they aren't going to do shit which I think is a huge mistake on their part. They should be protecting their flagship better.

If you think Ford would be outraged at the clearly predatory tactics of this dealer, you would be mistaken. When asked to comment on Koons Ford market adjustments, the automaker simply said final pricing is out of their hands.

“Ford shares recommended pricing for all vehicles with dealers and customers. Ultimately, customers and dealers will agree to the final pricing.” (via Sam Alexander)

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
This is what I was looking at. My dealer is in PA so I don't think that's a ZEV state either. When I talked to the sales guy back in May or June he said I was 2 or 3 on their list.

I'm so annoyed the first 5 spots at my dealership were filled by autists who reserved within 3 minutes of the presentation starting

I hope they all order unbuildable shit so I can get one this year

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
302a XLT and up get the basic LEDs. The 502a and up trucks get the nicer LEDs.

But the last gen LEDs was an expensive upgrade on the lariats. It's really bullshit tbh.

Honestly not bad at all. If I hadn't already bought a Tacoma I'd be interested.
