Jim Farley just said “mass production in Spring” a couple days ago on Twitter, so yeah, might be mid-June for the first ones.
Yeah, I was under the impression production would start by mid spring if they were planning to deliver by the end of spring.

Unfortunately the OP is suggesting production won't even start until June, which means deliveries won't happen until early summer at best.

The tweet you referenced and the info from the OP's dealer don't seem to match.

Dealers are notoriously misinformed. I would imagine that most people here know more about the features and specs than any sales rep at a dealership.

We are still being told that Job1 is still scheduled for April.

Given the usual production ramp-up and OK to Buy timing, customers should begin getting vehicles in June. Your mileage may vary. The tool trial builds have already completed. Vehicles look great. Keep your fingers crossed.

To me this mirrors the Bronco launch time line a bit except less speculation on pricing. Seems Ford is being tighter lipped about things this time around. I am really looking forward to seeing the Build and Price go live on this truck. I plan on the XL poverty edition and am curious what I will be getting. Not really interested in the XLT or higher trims as those as cost a production delays.

HAHA! This is the first post this "internet manager" has posted lol. I'm not believing this post at all.
Yea....I do the same thing at my dealer and ZERO info. Ford will let reservation holders know before they will let the dealership know based on my experience with the MME BRONCO MAVERICK etc. So why would the Lightning be any different???

Meanwhile Nissan has already priced out their new EV nor expected until the end of 2022.....Come on Ford release the configurator.

That looks pretty pricey for what you get. Also why make the base offering FWD? it is not an ICE. Seems just as easy to make a reliable RWD drive train. 0-60 FWD is 7.3sec.. Why? Just awful.

I agree. FWD should be low 30's if they want to go that route. Not really interested in this EV, I am just salty others have already made up their mind on pricing regardless of what comes out of Washington.

I share the frustration, but what could be the other reasons Ford is delaying the configurator?

It's exactly why they're delaying it which makes it all the more frustrating. Just price it out and let the consumer eat whatever extra comes from the bill.

I bet the XL now comes in over $42k not the $39974 advertised.

Me doing math.

AWD XL F150 Lighning $39,974 MSRP
- $12000 tax credit
$27974

AWD Lariat (we want cruise) Maverick
$27725 MSRP without 4k tow.

I hope that tax credit works for you. I
imagine an all-electric Maverick is in the works as well
