Does anyone know when the online configurator goes online ?
,

It has to be any day now, especially if the 10/26 order bank date is correct...

For reference, the MME configurator was released in 11/2019 and the order bank opened in 4/2020 (I think).

Ordering for MME opened late June 2020, and there really was not much to configure.

Where did that come from. I haven't seen anything about it opening up before Oct. 26th. Would love to get in early and play around.
Trying to find it, I believe I saw it in the Facebook group the day that the order bank opening was revealed.

To clarify, the configurator is allegedly going to be available 10/13 but nothing was said about placing an order that day. Just playing around with making your build. As I said, it's a totally unconfirmed rumor so I guess we'll have to see when the 13th rolls around. If it's wrong, well we've only got 2 weeks to wait after that (hopefully.)

Yeah, I figured it wouldn't be orders. Likely not evening pricing if it opened early. Would still like to play around and see what configuration options there are and what I want.

All I am going to say is trust in what @Pioneer74 has posted, I mean not only is he legit but he posted screenshot with the date. Anything earlier would be awesome though.

The sources for that information was a reader who contacted their dealer. Doesn’t seem like a credible enough source to base an article upon 🤪
These days you can publish an article based on even less than that! I wrote for my high school paper when I was 15 and the standards were higher...

When does the website show 2022 ICE for build? Right now, it is still showing 2021 ICE under build your vehicle. I assume ICE configuration is available before lightning…

My dealer said although Oct 26th might be the target date, Ford has missed their internal date by several weeks in the past, so don't hold your breath. Could be Nov or Dec.

Are dealers explaining potential delays due to microprocessor shortages? Anyone know how many chips these trucks use?​

When I was at an event, one of the Ford employees said that where something like a new iPhone would have around 12 chips, each lightning has about 1800. He seemed more concerned with that than batteries.

My dealer wouldn't give me a date but they said "a few weeks".

Yes but the chips in short supply are older style chips and they may have designed the lightning to use fewer of those and more newer style chips that are not in short supply. Only time will tell

Watch the InsideEV podcast with Darren Palmer he explains more on what types of chips are limiting production and why EVs are less limited by the shortage. Even more reason to get a Pro with manual seats ...

That's a good, and very correct, point.
