Try tapping the camera button on your dash once you're at cruising speed. It works on my truck. 21 XLT w/360 camera package.

Build date shows Sept but dealer order was placed in January so I think it was a 'lot' truck that sit for months waiting for chips or who knows what else. It could be that the order was delayed, but again who knows for sure.

Newer build dates can do this with cameras, older builds can’t yet

That's good news to me. It's possible that build date of my dealer ordered truck was delayed for some unknown reason. Although truck did have 12 miles on it when I took possession. I looked at other trucks on the lot that 35+ miles on them which would indicate a trip or two to lots where they were in storage awaiting various 'shortage' parts. I have only a little over 1000 miles on it so far and it's been flawless. Can I ask where you got this new vs old info from?

If your build date shows September it should have been built then. Mine was built in June and still doesn’t have it

I just remembered that the rear axle on my truck has no rust on it at all, so maybe I did get a later build after Ford smartened up and corrected that ugly problem. ? ? ? ? ?

Yes also depends on where the truck was built as mine didn’t have any
