Considering walking from order

Just got an email that my truck is built and ready to deliver. After waiting over a year, I kind of lost the excitement and my dealer just notified me that they mark up 10% because Ford gave them the truck at their cost and they need to make money too.
Any thoughts on what to do, not really interested in a 95k loan after taxes, title and dealer fees.
Thinking about just going with a 2023 Lariat full hybrid for 20k less.

I would flip it, but after all the costs, I'll maybe make 10 grand, maybe.

I wonder if I'll get my 500 dealer deposit back.
Its unfortunate too, I'm not the only one that walked, they have an XLT SR on the lot for 99k. Probably just fucking every single one of their customers that had orders.

what’s even more messed up.. and short term. I also told them I’m in the market for a telluride and 2 box trucks for my business while I was starting the order process. Not only was I trying to butter them up to not fuck me, but I also was serious about doing business with them if all went well.
FORD needs to step in and fix this FAST. Dealers are screwing over all their customers. Great short term idea, horrible for the long term survival of the brand.
