This will be the final, cleanup wave for MY2022 Lightnings.

Note that if you received but did not respond to an invitation to order in waves 1-5, your reservation was cancelled.

The only trucks available during Wave 6 are Lariats and Platinums. If you select a sold-out configuration, it will become an extended reservation for that configuration in MY 2023.

No invite for me....oh well.
The messages were unclear. 4/12 may be the date on which notifications go to dealers. Ford may be notifying customers on Thursday as usual.

Received a text and an email from Ford to place my order. Lariat now on order. Confirmation received from Ford. Dealer called me to let me know they accepted the order on their end. An unexpected but welcome surprise today.

Got my Wave 6 order invite this afternoon. Platinum is ordered, and I am waiting now for Stealership to accept the order..
They havent been too forthcoming with info for the past 9 months, so I am sure they will drag their heels on this too..Oh well, website says summer 2022 delivery, so fingers are crossed that they will respond shortly, and not try and slip in any ADM, which would make me surely cancel...

I got my surprise invite today! Unfortunately I also got a surprise $10k "market adjustment" added to the potential order!. I had asked my dealership if they were going to add anything above MSRP back in the summer and they said no! The said no on the phone and I followed it up with a written text convo. Now I dont know what I will do. :(

Find a dealer that won't charge the additional market adjustment. Then transfer the reservation/order BEFORE submitting the order.

As @VTbuckeye notes - hold that email but do not order from that dealer. The allocation is yours. Find a dealer that will sell at MSRP and move your reservation before ordering. Ford at the 800 number in your email can update your dealer immediately. Then place your order.

Thanks guys, ill see what I can do. What's dumb is that I have bought at least 5 cars and trucks from these guys over the years, and I was planning on continuing. Not now I guess.
Agree with all the advice. If It was me, and you liked these guys before, I'd call them and let them know what you are planning unless they match MSRP. I'm sure they have the capability to be reasonable if they want. At least, they then get a chance. If not, move on.

Went to my dealer today after getting called about making an order and knew that I couldn’t get a pro or XLT but figured I’d go anyway just to see what they had to say. (I want a pro). The dealer requested that I go on my account and click “order through dealer” and when I did, they claim an XLT was ordered and that I had configured that on my own which I find weird. Anyone have any idea how this is possible? When I log on to my account the order date is today (4/13/22) and it says “in store order”. Not sure how I feel since I’m pretty much pro or bust. Dealer seems to know nothing.

Question. Do you think there's a chance of Ford increasing the price for the 2023 year. I got the email to order and really want the XLT but I am afraid next year I will pay for the XLT the Lariat price :(

I am not sure I follow what you/they are trying to do here. Did you just give your reservation to your dealer?

Yes. I would be surprised if the XLT would actually reach the Lariat price, but there is certainly a chance, even probability, that prices will go up a bit.

I am trying to figure out where I stand. Went in there knowing they don’t know much but figured I’d waste an hour. They said I had to select the option of ordering through the dealer in order for them to do it. I hit “order through dealer” and they came back saying I already had one configured (which I don’t get, it’s not like there’s a shopping cart) and it went through. Told me it was a 311 package XLT, which I can’t fathom since when I logged on earlier it needed to be extended as did the pro. When I log on I have no options to see anything but this:

Just curious, when did you put in your reservation? I put mine in 5/20/21, but have not been invited to order yet.
