Ford closed reservation systems for a few of the most in-demand vehicles because they have more reservations than they can fill in the near future. In the case of the Lightning, they have about 200,000 reservations — more than 2022 and 2023 production combined.

That is unknown, many thing could change in the industry of EV's to lower costs (new cell technology, etc), barring that most likely it will cost more due to inflation.

SK Innovation Co Ltd is only going to be able to sell F-150 Lightning battery packs to Ford for the next 4 years (MY22 - MY25 Lightnings) in the US.

Then SK Innovation are then banned from selling any more batteries in the US for 6 more years (2032).

Because they lost a US Trade case against LG Chem Ltd for stealing their trade secrets.


Ford is going to need to find another battery supplier and/or start making their own batteries for the MY26+ F-150 Lightning.

Is the 2025 Ford lightning going to have more intelligent power back up system again?

What happened to the 3rd wave order?supposed to be last Friday according to the ford info line but nothing still? And what is this issue with the pro model availability? My order will only be for the pro, pricing for the xlt just doesn’t justify the additional cost to secure one!

Wave 3 opened at about 1:35 PM Eastern on February 3 (Thursday)
Log onto your Ford account look at your reservation, if you were selected in wave 3 then you will see something similar to this screen.

Also note the Ford account web site is acting funky this morning, it took a few minutes for my account and order data to load, they may be doing system maintenance.

You've linked to an older story. They've since reached a settlement allowing to move forward.
