RE: Want a new truck?

Stopped in the local friendly Ford dealer this morning, they had a 22 F 250 loaded up XLT CC, 6 1/2' bed,7.3 gas up on the ramps near the highway. Could of drove it home for $8K over sticker lol. The sales manager told me Ford has stopped building Super Dutys, if you order today the earliest one can expect it is May 2023......maybe, and said expect msrp to go up across the board $4K by then. They had a shiny silver F-150 lightning waiting to be delivered, it went for $25K above sticker. They just furloughed 6 sales people. People are out of their minds. Actually, you haven't been able to order a superduty since March when they shut the order board down. The 2023 order board is showing it will open up Oct. 13 as of now with production starting 1-3-23. As for 4K, I wouldn't be surprised. I have noticed there has been a little inflation going on. :h

RE: 2023 Ford Super Duty

Read earlier the 23's won't start production until 1-3-23.Order banks open up 10-17-22. Wonder if they will break the 100K MSRP like Ram has?

RE: time to get vehicle after ordering

It depends on what you are ordering and the options you want. The more bells and whistles you order the longer it will take. Some options you can't even order. Today was the last day you could order a Ford Superduty and a few weeks ago they cut the options available. Last I heard it will be July 1 before you can place an order for a Superduty. I was told 2 months ago to plan on a year for a loaded F450.

RE: Delivery on new F350

https://www.techtimes.com/articles/272936/20220313/ford-sell-vehicles-without-chips-global-chip-shortage-continue.htm Ford has decided to sell and ship vehicles without the chips that power non-safety features. The automaker will instead send the chips a year later to the dealers for installation after a vehicle is purchased Think GM started this last year.

RE: Delivery on new F350

As of now, ordering a new Superduty you will have limited options available no matter what trim level you order. Upfitter switches, adaptive steering, adaptive cruise, engine block heater, 5th wheel prep, rapid heat are just some of the options not available to order now. They have even taken them off of the build your own site.

RE: Delivery on new F350

You do know that the Kentucky Ford truck plant is shut down this week for part shortages. They were only able to work one shift last week.

Asheville to Columbia I-26

Going to be going through Asheville, NC to Columbia, SC on I-26 to catch I-20 toward Myrtle Beach. I know there is construction in Asheville on I-26 and outside Columbia. Has anyone been through lately and how bad is it? I know the last time through Asheville they were trying to get the roughest road in the country award and deserved it. Going through on Friday morning. Was looking at alternative routes to take to miss I-26 if it is needed.

RE: Jake Braking A 5er Down Long Steep Incline

I tow in tow mode and use cruise control all the time with the exhaust brake engaged. The OP has a 2019 F-350, I have a 2018 F-350, my exhaust brake has no auto, it’s either on or off. If your F-350 is a 6.7 diesel, then you have an auto mode. The first push on the exhaust brake is manual mode and the 2nd push of the button is auto mode. This started with the 2017 models.

RE: Moving over to the motorhome forum

Thanks. I updated my signature for the 2018 Thor Aria 3401 I found with only 7,800 miles. Good find in these times.

RE: 2022 HD trucks delivery date

we have 3 @ F350's on order right now... my bro in law.... son in law.... and best buddy.... All 3 were ordered in March and was told probably Late August originally... 1 was in Production last week, the other 2 are scheduled for next week... 1 on 9/13 and the other on 9/15.. MSRP on highest was $79,285.00... signed for it at $ 71,000.00 Building 22's ,and they got 21's sitting unfinished , now that makes sense .My son has had a 22 on order for months ,and no build date at all . IF its a Ford, tell him to drop the Adaptive Steering and it will get scheduled.... Right now, only the King Ranch with adaptive Steering are getting scheduled.... Some components in the steering wheels is holding it all up.. Thanks . Ya its a Ford Lariat , he knew about the adaptive cruise , and canceled it . Adaptive cruise or Adaptive steering? Either way I would want both but I guess if it makes a difference between getting a truck or not you have to make a choice. It's adaptive Steering that is holding the up.... They are on indefinite HOLD I have driven a 21 Ford with the adaptive steering, I can live without that , to me its actually annoying. As far as adaptive cruise goes, its okay, but in traffic I don't use cruise much , so I would have to have more experience with it to know if I would like it . Losing both those options wouldn't bother me . I would assume both can be shut off ?? Its kinda like the horn honking when you lock your vehicle as you walk away, I have mine shut off, so all I see is the lights flashing if I do happen to use it . How is adaptive steering annoying?
