    Chip update

    Sad but funny and likely true too. I hope this market has taught all of us a listen about dealers. I used to think they were all bad, but I seen the good really shine among all the bad ones out there. We'll all be smarter the next purchase. 💪🏾

    Chip update

    Yea. Here's the response I got from another dealer: "you are correct...we needed to opt in to receive the trucks without chips...there was an insurance issue that was resolved today with Ford...those that dont sign the opt in would receive their vehicles later...they will ship the chips modules to the dealers who opt in b4 they fix the trucks sitting at the plant." I hate being the guy with the dealer who doesn't know the right information. He's really confident that I don't know what I'm talking about too. Hot mess.

    Chip update

    @ice-capadesor @akirby Can you confirm that the process is that dealers have to opt-in to receive these trucks? My sales guy told me he isn't sure if my truck has all the chips. I told him that I was tracking that dealers needed to opt-in to receive incomplete trucks, but he told me my information was incorrect.

    Bumped for update. I see that it shipped. Hopefully the VVR has the current location of the truck. Thanks!

    Bumped. What does it say in the ETA disposition for my latest status? Other folks have pointed out there ETA disposition changed a few times while the secondary status remained the same before ultimately having their trucks shipped. Thanks.

    X Plan Pin

    Yea. For the benefit one gets, that fee is nothing. All the details are in the link I posted.

    Wireless phone charging in Lariat.

    This would be awesome, and quite frankly I'm surprised this isn't a standard feature in 2021 on any vehicle 40k+. I mean we are more connected to the internet now than ever, so it only makes sense to provide these type of necessities.

    Bumped for update. Is there a note in my vehicle visibility report (VVR)indicating what the hold up is? Supposedly the VVR will now state if a truck is waiting on a chip.

    Improve Communication w/Dealers

    @ice-capades Are there any changes you'd like to see between Ford and their dealers from your dealership perspective? I have an impression that the larger and more we'll connected dealers are able to get their ordered trucks (stock and retail) quicker than the smaller names. Ford will say that trucks are built in the order they're received, but that's a either complete ignorance or a lie. These dealers with massive YouTube followers seem to be getting trucks in weekly, so maybe consumers should only purchase from big name/ big social media following dealers. Thoughts?

    F150 Lightning Range

    Solid state batteries will address the charging times and range, but the issue with the current battery technology is that cold weather reduces the range. You likely were getting 300-350 miles on a combustible engine, but no way anyone is going to get 300 on a truck when you factor in towing, long idle times on job sites, and of course the weather. 300 range on an EV truck may actually end up being less than 200. I see wide adoption of EV increasing as the battery technology improves; which should improve range and charge time.

    EVs certainly don't lack in power. You likely want what akirby was referring to; THAT beefy rumble. It'll be interesting to see how EV trucks are going to be years from now.

    Question regarding X-Plan doc fees

    I read the "may charge" portion of the fine print as giving the dealer authorization to charge 100 even though a state requires that all customers get charged the same. Based on the context of the fine print, Ford is able to authorize a dealer to charge the plan customer only 100 because "any additional fees have been paid by Ford Motor Company or Lincoln Motor Company as part of the AXZD-Plan Program dealer reimbursement on the buyer's order." It would be wild if that dealer charges 250 then sends Ford a bill for 150 (assuming that's how it works).

    That would be cool. EV makers have to have the vehicles make some noise for the safety of pedestrians. Maybe it would be possible to switch out that low humming sound EVs are known for with an optional upgrade to that V8 rumble folks crave. Considering that the sound would be fake, EV makers would have to work on the sound. I guess that's possible.
