From what I understand, they don’t automatically transition. Your dealer would be responsible for changing to the new MY. I believe you could order ‘22 MY in October, so I would imagine that will be the same for this year, and the time you would want to have that conversation with your salesman.
That, my friend, is something that's on my mind. I just ordered my Platinum PB 701A with sunroof and adaptive steering this past Monday, but reading the threads here have made me a little blue. I'm really concerned Ford isn't goona get to mine until MY23.
I experienced this situation last year. I ordered a 2021 King Ranch 601A on Sep 16. The 2022 Order Banks opened sometime around Sep 29 to Oct 1. My dealer contacted me on Oct 1 to say my 2021 order was not selected for scheduling and asked if I wanted to reorder as a 2022. Reviewed the 2022 F-150 Order Guide to ensure I didn't need to change anything and gave the go-ahead. Ford later offered $3500 customer cash for resubmitted orders provided the dealer had registered both the 2021 and the 2022 orders in Ford's Customer Order Verification Program (COVP), which my dealer had done. Makes me a happy camper!
