    Now that throttles are electronic it’s very easy to modulate the throttle signals or change the PCM parameters to change the responsiveness.  All reports I’ve seen say they work.

    Not true,  Ford employees can share pins with friends and family.  That used to happen a lot around here but Ford cracked down on the definition of friend which doesn’t include strangers on Internet forums.

    Or the cost/benefit favors the EV in the future. We've seen Ford be willing to let go of market segments (sedans and minivans), to favor more profitable ones. They are willing to take less overall sales if they make more profit on the ones that are left.

    I was about to say that’s exactly what I proposed a few months ago, but then I looked at the number of option combinations.  It’s still way too many for stock.
     
    Expedition 202A - 10 Max packages and 9 Standard?  How does that help with inventory?  Great idea but cut down the packages.  Remember folks who want a specific option combination can still order that.  3-4 packages per vehicle would be ideal.

    Per plan rules you should have advised the dealer that you’re using x plan before you negotiated the order,  Especially now when some are not accepting x plan.  Discuss this asap with your dealer.

    Raptor orders are scheduled manually at the regional level and a different process. Dealers are advised in advance of potential Raptor order scheduling and applicable commodity restraints.

    I was only half joking about the PR stunt, but I wouldn’t rule it out completely.  I’m guessing that Elon demanded a futuristic truck so they popped out that design and prototype quickly.  But when they started to make it a reality with all the required truck functionality and meeting safety regulations with the performance and price point that Elon promised they came up short.
     
    Which is pretty much what 90% of us said at the time,

    So why would they want so many combos?  Dealers supposedly helped create these.  I don’t get it.

    Not having to reach over the tailgate to get something in the bed,  As it is with the tailgate down you can only reach about 2 feet I to the bed.  With this you can reach almost 4 feet.  I would use it a lot.

    Drop the tailgate, pull out the step, climb up.  Bend down, pick it up, move it to the tailgate.  Climb down.  Put up step.  Take item off tailgate,  shut tailgate.

    Open door.  Take out item.  Close door.

    X plan is 0.4% below invoice + $275.   So on a dealer invoice of $50k it’s 50000 * .996 + $275 or $50,075.
