I feel like those Chapman sales apes just tell you a random number when you ask about spot in line
I used a dealer much closer to my house. I have my TRX order through Chapmann but they are 45-50 mins away from me.

That Lariat + is what I was looking at. Might have to hold out for one of these and sell whichever truck I don't want.

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 the way

Lariat+ also seems build able under 80k which gets you the rebate under the BBB in case it gets passed and is retroactive through 1/1/22

Yep just built it out to $79,7xx with bedliner, and a couple other extras.

Lariat+ seems like a much better deal over the poverty lariat
for $10k you get the big boy battery with more power, twin panel roof, home charger, blues clues, and some other goodies
and its more buildable

XLT seems like the worst value but what the poors will get because the Pro is going to be super limited
Platty is just for flexing, I don't think its that much nicer than the Lariat+

Oof. Ford really wants you to spend 70k on this truck. XLT is $75k with the extended batt and 312a package.. I think Ford fucked up on pricing tbh. :o

Yup, agreed. Everything is about $10k more than it should be. Ford really had that BBB rebate in mind.

@JohnnyBeagle what's the next step? Your dealer calls you when it's your time to order? I have only heard from them twice since June. One was to confirm my reservation and info and then they reached out in August saying they were hoping to play orders around the end of the year.
