My local dealer just posted they have 5 XLT Sport's (Agate, Carbonized Grey, Rapid Red) and 1 Lariat Sport (Carbonized Gray), in stock. Another Dealer about 30 minutes away has XL, XLT, Lariat, KR, and Platinum. I think I know where I am going tomorrow....

Yes! Apparently each dealer got one platinum each (from what I can tell) and they are all EB. In fact, they are all same price when I filter to Star White.

No Hybrids, no work surface. If they have this on the lot I will go look tomorrow morning! Will still have to wait to drive a hybrid it seems (none within 100 miles)

What I'm seeing is that these are dealer stock orders for which they've received VIN's [edit] BUT HAVE NOT TAKEN DELIVERY. They don't have window stickers, yet.

I would love to be proven wrong, as I am as anxious as everyone else to see these '21s on the line and on the road.

I would call before I went. I have seen dealers list them and then say they are in transit.

I thought the same.. but they are using real photos verse stock photos that most dealers are using right now. My gut tells me those with real photos have the truck in hand. Stock photos - trucks are enroute or being built.

If they are there, then wouldn't they have the Monroney Label? It would have gas mileage on it.

On that ad
Look on down to where it says:

Seller Comments. (Stock # ORDER 001)

Pretty much tells me that it has not been built yet

So, several of my local dealers show "Just Arrived" tags on the Ford Inventory search tool. That is, as most here have assumed, a lie. I spoke with the area's largest dealer yesterday and they said they know what is coming, but don't know the date the trucks will roll in. I drove around my local dealer and there wasn't anything on the lot there, either.

False alarm folks, nothing to see here, return to your homes.

My local dealership showed two 2021 F150s on their website.

Both showed as "In Transit"
Both have generic stock photos, not local photos (not even the right color, or trim)
Both have VINS on the ad.
One of those VINS is mine (stock order), so I called to inquire what was really happening.
I was informed that Ford posted those ads, not posted locally.
He said that "In Transit" could mean anything from parts still unassembled to actually on a truck/train.
He seemed to be surprised that those trucks had been added to their website, but he immediately changed the status of my truck to "SOLD".
I still have no official build date as of yesterday, so it's anybody's guess when it will actually arrive.

..........returning to my patiently waiting status

I also just noticed that the VIN is 0101.
This is a lower # than the trucks out touring for the "Test Drive Events"
