Just got an e-mail from Ford, all orders for 2022 have been sent. Yes I am SOL even at slot #2 from my dealer.
Got the same email—shut out for 2022. (I placed my reservation within first 24 hours of order availability). My reservation was around 30,000 in line originally, and many have canceled since last year, so that tells me that Ford is severely limited on how many trucks they can produce for 2022.Just got an e-mail from Ford, all orders for 2022 have been sent.

Hoping they some day make the build that everyone wants, but I wouldn't look for that anytime before a completely redesigned truck in a few years. My further bet is that they truly won't ever make anything other than a short bed truck even then for a few years. They have to get to the next step in battery technology and or maybe size to support anything more. I'm guessing that 99% of the use of the current model is nothing more than commuter and grocery hauler.me too, so much for reserving on 5/19... Hoping for a 6 1/2' bed next year
They don't. It is in order of reservation, but only at that dealership and after the first 25 (for a dealership with 200+ reservations). So some people who reserved in June but at smaller dealerships who got some allocation got picked before some 5/19 people. There were no rules for the dealerships for as to how they wanted to order their first 25 too. It's mostly bullshit that they do it in order of reservation, some people got lucky with decent places that didn't mess around with the order. Also, it doesn't matter if it's in order after the first 25 if they are only allocated less than that, which most places near me were.I just think they didn't follow the line in order of reservation. I don't know what was the criteria to choose others in advance.
I can't make any of that go away and FOMOCO did part of that, but just because they gave the dealerships a way to prioritize some trucks, not all dealerships did that. Many did the right thing. Your dealership is the one that then moved others ahead of you if you know for a fact they moved 25 people up.Heres the deal, ford said when reservations opened, it would hold our place in line, my reservation was complete 3 minutes after reservations opened. What ford did was allow dealers to place friends, family and those with deep pockets ahead of the regular joe, which in turn was a breach of trust and possibly a violation of fair business practices. It did not hold my spot in line, but merely collected my money for a false promise. I was with the first 1500 to order, i should have been second at my dealership. But they decided that there were 25 people more important than the 94k i am going to drop on the truck. I have been a loyal ford owner for 36 years. I feel betrayed
If this is true, then possibly the wave-1-5 offers remaining unexercised will still be dealt with during the April cleanup run.Same here. I was one spot away from getting an order. I agree with many of the comments above. Kind of funny that we're going through the grieving process of a truck!
Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression, Acceptance. hahaha, well at least I am.
My dealer did give me one last ray of hope. He said that the 5 non-converted orders, if not completed, would be offered up to those next in line.
Did anyone hear something similar?
