With the powerboost and spray in bedliner for my order, guessing I don't get scheduled this week.

How the heck are they still facing limited availability issues with the 3.5L EB and spray on Bedliner this late in 2024?

Yeah, a company as big and "powerful" as Ford should NOT be having supply chain issues at this point. Time to stop blaming the the covid nonsense on insufficient production at this point.

I agree 100%. Covid is no longer an excuse. I may be buying a different brand after only owning Ford trucks in my lifetime. My 502A was ordered in November and still hasn’t been scheduled. My $2k PCO expired yesterday and I did not get the $4k offer today.

Your PCO is locked in at time of order regardless when your truck arrives.

I didn’t have one when I ordered. And don’t have one now.

Unless you have the 5.0 or 2.7 and Max Tow without a bedliner you won't get scheduled this week.

What makes me mad is that I don't think that it is constraints. I think that they use these scheduling notes to incentivize dealer orders into the preferred order package to maximize profits. This why they are basically forcing max tow down everyone's throats. Wanna get scheduled? Just add max tow! Since the PB doesn't come with Max Tow, that effectively kills any PB orders right there.

As far as the 3.5L EB, who knows why that is constrained. I assumed that the 3.5L EB orders would drop dramatically because of the $1,900 PB discount, which basically makes the PB free or close to free on Lariat and above. I guess more ppl are ordering them than they anticipated and they are running out.

But my assertion stands. I believe that these scheduling issues are as much about what they have too much of and want to sell as they are about constraints. They clearly have excess max tow axles. They likely have overproduced 2.7L and 5.0L and are trying get dealers to order those as well. Retail orders like ours get caught in this game.

I doubt this is due to supply chain issues. This is a normal ebb and flow of production. The 3.5 EcoBoost gets put into trucks at both the KC and Dearborn plants and is used in the F150, Transit, Expedition, and the Lincoln Navigator just to name a few. With all of the orders from both retail sales and dealer stocks, I could see where any particular piece or part gets limited from time to time. I'm sure their engine plants are working at full speed year round and if the main 3.5 EcoBoost is causing the "limited availability" then it would be the same for the PowerBoost. The bedliner has always slowed things. Earlier in the year, Ford mentioned that they were going to begin cutting a shift at that facility if dealers wouldn't order them. I wouldn't be surprised if there was a hidden incentive to dealers to order them but in any case, it worked and now they have more bedliner orders than they can handle today. Next week, it will likely have resolved itself.

Remember, it is labeled as a "limited availability" and not an "exhausted commodity". Ford makes nearly 30K F150s a month. Being limited on a particular part in the process from time to time is normal. When it says "exhausted", then I'd begin to complain.

I agree on what they may be coercing people to go with, or what they claim they can provide to dealers for retail sales.

That said, mine has a 5.0L ordered, and I have still to receive any word on the order from Ford. So if they want to schedule those to get rid of some of those Coyotes, I'd be okay with that.

I think you're right. I look at this as incentive messages from Ford to the dealerships. I also think you will see a Max Tow Axle "limited availability" within the next 3 weeks because of this depending on how long this message stays on the list.
With the PowerBoost being incentivized so much, I could also see a surplus of 2.7s and 5.0s laying around the factory floors. That would certainly explain the surplus of Max Tow Axles too.

2021 XLT Screw 5.0,4x4,302Asport,
If the 3.5 is built as the same plant that other engines like the 3.3 was, then I would have thought that cancelling one engine would release space to build more of the other.

Then again, I'm seeing local dealers order the 3.5 not the 5.0 as they used to two and three years ago. So perhaps that's the issue. Many many more orders for the 3.5 engine than they were expecting.

I have the 5.0 and Max Tow on order. Hoping to be scheduled this week. Only thing that may hold it up is the BAP, but as Long MacArthur stated last night, that really shouldn’t be an issue. If mine doesn’t schedule this week, I’m more inclined to lean towards this being an allocation issue vs anything else
