So sorry to hear that happened. Ford should put a priority on the replacement.

Oh man! So sorry to hear this!! Definitely call or write Ford to tell them what happened. Hopefully they will turn it into a happy story.

Bummer! Was it a PB by chance? I don’t see any badging so guessing not. Not that PB would be any more susceptible or that your truck was even the source, just thinking as throughly burned out as it is, it reminds me of photos of cars after a lithium fire.... maybe just because the body is aluminum.

sorry to see that, especially after being so close to having it. Hope it works out for the best in the end.

Im curious if Ford will want to look at the truck to see what happened. It’s possible someone else’s car caused this fire. i got gap insurance from my auto insurance company.

Ummm, any idea what caused the fire?
No need for others to point fingers at the F150 itself as the cause of the fire 🔥.

I think the OP left out too many details.

As far as what he or she can or should do? The answer is very simple.…..

Call your insurance company.

Not sure , but to me I'm guessing brake fire on the transport truck.

Combined with leaking hydraulics, which a lot of them have and it could very easily result in OP's disastrous delivery. It could have been smoldering for a while before the driver noticed. Knew of one driver that didn't know he lost an entire Escalade until the highway patrol tracked him down. Same driver would steal brake fluid from garages to top off his leaky hydraulics.

Hopefully there will be a legitimate investigation, since this shouldn't be happening with new vehicles.

Was away over the weekend enjoying San Diego (best town in CA IMO) with the family while trying to keep my mind off the truck. To answer a few questions no power boost, was a 3.5 eco. Still working through the insurance process but am expecting to get FRV. Still no indication on whether it was the truck or the transport trailer that caused the fire. Planning on submitting a new order early this week. Really sucks that I’m going to have to go through this entire process all over again. Would love to find a Ford contact to discuss the possibility of being bumped up if at all possible. Those 700 miles I put on it in a week was awesome.
