2021 XLT Supercab/ 6.5 box, 2.7, 302A, Antimatter

Maybe inventory differs by region, but I have someone looking for something similar to the order I placed start of March and nothing. I was told right away though that one of my requirements was uncommon with the other combinations. 40/20/40 bench with 302a apparently is not as common. We have been looking all across Ontario.🇨🇦
Here is the build...
XLT, 3.5 eco, Supercrew, 4x4, 5 1/2 box, Agate Black, 302a, XTR (chrome pkg), 360 camera, max trailer tow, tow mirrors, tailgate step, power adjustable pedals, B&O sound, Co-pilot assist 2.0, 2kw pro power.
Not only the inventory varies by region, so does the buying experience. For a number of reasons, we Canadians ought to take the advice (generously) offered on some of these threads with a grain of salt.

Not only do we have different consumer regulations, but our market is so much smaller than our friends to the south, so the pool of inventory is also proportionally smaller. It all leads to a more expensive experience… but we don’t need to be reminded of that do we?😜

My buying experience was actually pretty smooth, maybe a few frustrated sales folks but on my end it was ok. Designed the build, sent it off to 5 dealers and told them to give me the best price they can. Ended up working with 2 to get a little bit extra. Overall, I'm pretty happy with the price and the discount I was able to get. Take into consideration the exchange rate and I don't think I'm paying that much more than those south of us. I do agree, our inventory levels suck even at the best of times.

2021 XLT Loaded Reg Cab Short bed 4x4 5.0 AntiBlue
It’s good to see that not ALL reg cab short beds are optioned as “Public Works” trucks because that was all I could find for months.

But again, I’m pretty settled on the options I want after 7 months of searching, researching and finally ordering. If I’ve waited this long, I can wait a little (ha, ha) longer for the truck I want.

Not sure of specifics you're looking for but I found mine at West Alabama Ford (https://www.westalabamaford.net/). His advertised price on web site was almost $2000 below sticker and he doesn't added "dealer options". I waiting for delivery, hopefully this week, of a dealer order F150 XLT, 3.5L, 4x4 w/FX4 pkg. Compared to other dealer's quotes, this truck sticker was $1500 over other dealer's yet drive out price is almost $5,000 less!
I'll keep you updated!

It is such a shame that I can not find a truck. A 75000.00 plus truck. I have never seen days like this. And if I order I may or may not get it. I sold my 18 Limited and back to driving my 05 GMC with 340000 miles. Have driven to dealers who say they have a truck and get there and it is gone. I am really discouraged.
What is South East? My dealer just got a few in here in south mississippi

Really?

Please send me the link to the 2021, fully loaded Regular Cab Short Bed 4x4 with a 5.0 on "cars.com".

Any color will due and I'm willing to fly anywhere in country to pick it up.

Thanks in advance...
That's your problem. Regular cabs are only available on the XL and XLT. If you want "fully loaded" you need to get a SuperCrew. You might be able to find a SuperCab in Lariat somewhere, but that's the highest trim they make the SuperCab in. If you want "loaded", you're stuck with a SuperCrew.
