    This is your answer.  It was never going to come with push/start to begin with.

    IF they get around to building them, they'll probably be the mix and match of parts they are currently are now.  Sorry, no multi contour seats, BAP on XLT, etc.  Get an ugly new grill area though.

    I ordered two 2022 models. The first was a SCSB and got it as loaded as possible.  Lariats value is the highest trim package you can get and it does not come with the push button start. It also does not come with the LED option which seems really shortsighted to me. I added the higher trim and LEDs etc to a CCSB which was delivered. The first order is five days short of one year and still in production.

    Can't see how one can completely eliminate dust and water back there.  It will get past any tailgate seal as well.

    this (many years ago) used to be a great thread...does anyone at ford even reply in here anymore?
     
    the covid bs/intentional shipping logjams at ports/intentional labor shortages by rewarding the lazy-shutting down businesses during covid over things known now to have been useless will spin into a devolving political mess unneeded- but whatever: Fords customer service is SAD.
     my buddies Bronco showed up yesterday- 1.5 years hes waited. it was built 3/28, confirmed completed, just awaiting a hauler...it showed up, but the online tracker still says 'awaiting shipment. come on- the system absolutely knows where this stuff is at and why. get some first year IT kid to fix access to it. fedex can track a envelope, ford makes status of 70k+ trucks top secret or simply 'noone knows'... I really cant picture a taco bell employee out there with a notepad and pencil paper looking thru the sea of trucks to find one, know what I mean? its in the computer system, its not lost.
     
    as for build quality, its backpedalling a bit. when the 15 f150s came out at the auto show, i nit picked the hell out of them, sent a 'book' of photos to ford- even got a reply from Mark Fields himself and a call from his secretary LOL- and the next year the auto show trucks were perfect though, after seeing a couple years of good things, got a 19 lariat, and its the finest vehicle ive ever had- still is, even though ive got a 2 week old 22 lariat too   the 22, the roof seams are showing ecoat(thin to non existent paint) the drivers rear cab corner sticks out 1/2" past the bed- bed or cab aint centered on the mounts...drivers rear door requires slamming to get it to fully close- just little fitting issues...bodywise, the inner side edges of the tailgate though- uggh...jagged/cracked/look like the auto show trucks from 15 again...yeah its not a visible surface, but if you snag a rag or cut yourself trying to clean it, it wont be a 'good job ford' moment...
     
    i dunno where the answer lies, but without quality at the forefront, and without actual customer service, fords committing suicide. ive always been a ford guy, but honestly dont love this 22 lariat any more than our 98 windstar new... the 19 was a perfect truck, paint/fit/finish/materials... the 22 has iffy things that will need addressed- and the thought of dealer paint repairs scares the hell out of me- the 22 leather wheel has whats gotta be the cheapest leather on the planet- it might be cardboard from the feel of it, just goofy little gripes that were not there till the newest model...it might cost the most by a lot, but isnt the best...sorry. it will be my last new F150 though, might even dump it and look for another 19 lariat-  that 19 is just about a impossible truck not to love- the team that packaged that one all earned a well deserved pat on the back... 2 years into the all new model though, still seeing paint/finishing/assembly  issues- combined with poor material on the steering wheel (that may actually be a covid thing- but i still suspect a beancounter thing was behind it, as the quality of the leather seats IS perfect).
     
    trying to love this 22, but its just lacking. yeah, more power in the 3.5- but they dicked with the perfection that was the noise csancellation/engine sound enhancement the 19 had, now the 22 sounds like a sewing machine unless you really step on it- the 19 had a soft v8 sound and exceptional muting of the quite noisy 3.5 clatter... shame they went backwards

    Maybe the government will take care of everything for me, since Ford could care less.  Wish they had an email address, so I could maybe get a dismissive auto reply.  😂

    Our TT has an approximate 900 pound tongue weight.  With the trailer attached and camping stuff in the bed, it will squat a few inches.  20 pounds in the bags brings it all level.

    They have to stick it out on the front line for a week, so they can attract buyers.  😮  No, shouldn't take that long..unless something arrived broken and the parts will take a bit to arrive.  I'd suggest driving there and looking at it now.

    It looks great, but to me, the 7.3 stock exhaust is plenty loud when pulling a load.  Had the GM performance exhaust on my 6.2 GMC and it was quite annoying when towing.

    Bumper is straight.  Dealer had one on the lot with a big dent in the cab behind the door.  Asked them why they don't fix it and was told they were waiting for someone to purchase it first.  Doesn't make a lot of sense to me, but I guess it's common for them.  Actually had them tell me that a truck will never be delivered in perfect condition.....
