When I click the original link, I still get a page saying

SORRY, THERE ARE NO LIVESTREAMS
AVAILABLE FOR YOUR VEHICLE
Livestreams are currently only available for 2021 F-150, Mustang Mach-E, Bronco Bronco Sport and F-150 Lightning models.
When I click on the F-150 Lightning link, it takes me to https://www.ford.com/support/vehicle/2022/Ford/F150-lightning/discover-your-ford/livestream, which displays an upcoming livestream on Sept. 27th at 6 PM PDT. Nothing on the 9th.

Note that the difference in the links is the model year. There is no such thing as a 2021 F-150 Lightning.

Well for those of us with cutting edge vehicles in our garages like the MachE and Bronco, rescheduling kinda comes with early adopters! Worth the wait though!

Here's the Q&A I captured from the chat of tonight's video. Many of the questions are already found the the Tech Specs. One of my questions was answered, several at the end of this were not. However there were a few new nuggets:
Power fold mirrors are on Lariat and Platinum only
The Tough Bed spray-in bedliner is not standard on the F-150 Lightning, but is an available option on all trims.
Standard Range Battery: 98kWh
Extended Range Battery: 131 kWh
(unsure if these are total or usable capacity)

When can I reserve my new Ford lightning?
If you don't have a reservation, that's a very good question. The reservation system was closed at 200,000.
If you have a reservation but want to convert it to an order, 2022 conversions are closed and 2023 conversions will open this summer.
