That's a good looking truck. I didn't get 4x4 or the power deploy boards. But otherwise, that's it. Seeing this picture gets me excited again. The Lariat Chrome looks sharp. I do like the lariat grill as well. Even chromed out the tow hooks which I know are only on 4x4 but still like that detail.
100% agree, this is a great looking F150.

This makes me rethink going the Sport route..
Why I get the chrome pkg with the KR star white without the bottom color.

Best looking wheels to date from Ford.

2021 F-150 XLT SCREW 5.5, FX4, 2.7EB
Passed by my local dealer today and they’ve got a few 2021 F-150s sitting on the lot for sale. Saw a few more in their gated in lot too that I couldn’t access.

No word yet on my truck. Ordered in September. Hoping this is a good sign though!

I live in the metro Detroit area. I ordered my truck back on 9/14. My truck was 1 of 4 to arrive at my dealership last Friday the 4th. I was able to take it home the next day. If you haven’t received yours yet, I’m guessing it will not be too much longer. (y)

I ordered right around the same time as you. I’m also in Metro Detroit. Was just assigned a VIN last week. Looks like a build date of early February sadly! Congrats on yours!

Thank you, sir. I was actually really surprised when my salesperson text me that it had just been delivered. Mine was built in Dearborn and I see yours is coming from Kansas City. I’m not sure what determines the plant of origin.
Anyway, hopefully yours stays on track and you get it when you expect to. All I know is that you’ll be rewarded with a fantastic truck. I am really impressed so far with the overall redesign.

You ordered it in 2014? I thought I was waiting a while.

the defender is the smoothest, the ko2 is awesome too! I’m actually torn between the 2. With the ko2 you have to go to an LT 8 or 10 ply rating. I’ll probably go with defender on day 1 and at some point try out the KO2
I’ve read reviews on both, and they both seem like good tires. However, isn’t it like comparing apples and oranges? Isn’t the Michelin Defender a smooth, road oriented tire, while the BF Goodrich KO2s are a moderately aggressive off road tire?

You’re absolutely right. The Michelin Defender is a ‘touring all-season’ tire whereas the BFG KO2 is a ‘snow-rated all-terrain tire’. Both have great reputations and both have excellent reviews but they are quite different in how they perform.

I have always been pretty high on the Yokohama Geolander. I have read some positive things about the new X-AT. Might try those out...

How are the BFGs for things like road noise and body roll, and ride harshness?

Kyle, I had BFG AT/KO's on my FJ TRD edition. The tires were loud and hard to balance (had to road force to get the wobble out). The Bilstein shocks took care of the ride - but it still felt more like a truck than a Lincoln.

Michelins have the best ride, in my own experience. I'm going to wait to see what comes stock on the Platinum FX4 before making a final decision on tires.

I figured they’d probably be like that. Pretty good looking tire, though!

For my NoCal peeps (@ZWARRIOR, @21PlatiDZL, @05RubiconLJ ), I was on the phone with Folsom today and he physically got 2 XLT's delivered on the lot. He even said a guy from Future was snooping around looking at them. I said wouldn't they have all come on the same rail to Benicia and to Sac on carrier together? But he said he wasn't sure but they got 2. I am taking my daughter's ranger in for service there tomorrow so I will check them out. No other trims yet.
