Now I'm torn. This and the TRX are basically the same price after the 11% off msrp deal on the RAM. But that rebate....plus no gas. fuuuuu

@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.
wave invites come to your email + text starting 1/6
you order online, your dealer reviews and confirms

Rebate
No gas (and not the 11mpg the TRX is getting)
Virtually no maintenance other than tire rotations
Faster with the ER with better handelobraes
Frunk
better fit in garages

but TRX sounds cool af and you can flip it pretty easily. If you can swing it, get the TRX and flip it before the F150L comes in

Between the two I'd go with the lightning tbh. But the TRX is pretty neat. :o

Sigh. I know it's stupid but that hellcat motor and the offroad functionality (which I will never use) are really swaying me to keep the TRX. I got some time to think about it I guess. I doubt I'll be part of the first wave anyway.

Buffalo, NY. Again.
Wtf is Lariat+? All I'm seeing is Lariat...

Built it out, picked a color & dual motor ext range batt, and didn't add anything actually.

I'm seeing $79,1

Man theyre really pushing it on the pricing, imo.

Also, LOL those wheels.

I know my reservation isn't getting me on in '22, so I'm not real worried about any of it yet... But I was really hoping that this truck would be a big splash in the market, win hearts and minds, etc.

I'm amazed anyone is surprised about pricing. The cost increase isn't wild at all vs current trucks.

You don't want 200 orders you can pack $25k on the front?
What's the old saying in real estate? Location location location?


For new it's allocation allocation allocation.

Give me 200 orders. I'll be allowed to build 3 of them. 2 of them will be picked up in a few months. The other just won't. No one knows why.

I can sell 3 trucks on my own thx
