Hey guy‘s. Has anyone found any information for wave 3 orders? I placed a reservation last may the following day after Ford opened reservation. No luck on the first 2 waves for ordering. Hoping to be in round 3! 🤞

Just talked to my dealership. They have 50 reservations. so far one truck has been allotted to them from Ford. Apparently I’m number 10th in line.

Round 3 was last week. There are two threads on it.

You're lucky you got that info. My dealer (Bill Pierre Ford, Seattle) says that have no information regarding number of reservations, number in queue and allotment, that they can share.

I think that is no information they are willing to share. Some dealers have shared this information.

What the dealer knows is the prioritized list they submitted to Ford corporate. Some dealers claim to know what their allocation is, other like mine, doubt anyone has a firm number, yet. Latest scuttlebutt I've heard is that 2022 will indeed be a short run and 2023 orders start this summer. So even if you miss all 6 waves, you might still get a truck in calendar year 2022.
What will suck is the tax credit phaseout will probably start Q3 and certainly by Q4.

My dealer was one that shared their allocation number per their Ford rep (not sure how high up the chain this rep was). They were allocated 3 total for '22, one had already had an order go through, he said I was #2 in line. The one order that was already placed was in wave 1, 0 in wave 2, and I was wave 3. He's not aware of the 3rd invite being out, but he didn't know mine was either, until I called and informed him.

I think that is no information they are willing to share.
☝ or they haven't asked.

I have a reservation a Bill Pierre Ford and the General Sales Manager shared that info with me. I say general Sales Manager, because the original "EV Specialist" was uninformed and wouldn't even tell me the dealer fees...I had to email some of the top brass there, to have someone that was willing to tell me the fees, look where I was in line (time stamp) and answer my questions. The original guy ("EV Specialist") was young, couldn't answer emails and was combative when he found out that I went over his head to get answers. His manager tried to patch things up between us, but I wasn't having it...I was then transferred to the General manager who was professional, knowledgeable and what you should expect when considering an expensive vehicle.
Don't settle with amateurs peddling bad or uniformed answers!
