American Ford dealers have stopped taking orders for the new F-150 2022 model year – received the appropriate letter from the automaker. The last opportunity to apply for the purchase was on Friday, May 13, now until May 19 sellers should check the accepted orders, after which sales of the pickup of the current model year will be completely closed. The only exception is the expensive Raptor version.
Ford has sold out all fuel versions of its bestseller, the model F-150 (we are talking about gasoline and hybrid variants, and diesel options have disappeared from the configurator even earlier), and acceptance of orders for 2022 model year pickup in XL, XLT, Lariat, King Ranch, Platinum, Limited and Tremor configurations is stopped.
However, you will not have to wait long for the 2023 model year. It is expected to be announced in July and will be on sale in the fall. But until then, you can apply only for F-150 Raptor with a 3.5-liter V6 EcoBoost rated at 457 horsepower, which costs almost $69 thousand against $30 thousand for the basic F-150 XL.
Earlier, it became known that this fall the range of F-150 will be added to another entry-level version called Rattler (“rattlesnake”). This pickup will be built on the basis of the starting model XL, but it will be available with a standard all-wheel-drive and off-road package F4X. The price has not been announced yet.
As for the electric F-150 Lightning, orders for it stopped at the end of 2021, that is, just six months after the price announcement. By that time, more than 200 thousand people had applied for the purchase.
