    2022 Super Duty Orders & Discussion

    It’s pretty soul crushing. The only thought more horrifying than it being in the shop this long is what replacement looks like if it needs to be bought back. I’d be looking at a May delivery (J2) and a massive difference in MSRP. I don’t even know what else the problem could be after getting new calipers installed all around. Kinked hard brake line? Defective ABS valve?

    So I thought the wait was over when my truck was delivered in January. Two weeks into ownership, I noticed it pulling hard to the right under firm braking. Took it into my dealer. They replaced calipers on both sides over the course of a week in the shop and it’s still pulling. Their technicians don’t know what else to do. They’re opening a case with Ford corporate for technical support. Thankfully they put me in a brand new 2023 loaner truck free of charge but good lord is this aggravating. Is anyone else having issues with brakes on their 2022s?

    Raptor vs f250

    You got double whammy’d with that trade. The Raptor traditionally has softer suspension than regular half tons, and you went from that to a super duty which is always going to ride rougher than a half ton. It’s set up to handle more weight. Your F-250 won’t feel buttery smooth until it’s loaded up with real weight in the bed. The best you can do is add a steering stabilizer, progressively valved coilovers, and softer shocks in the rear. After that, it is what it is.

    Finally got to pick up my truck today! 10 months from order to delivery. Taking pictures tomorrow when it’s light out. Best of luck to everyone awaiting delivery, and huge thanks to the moderators on this site for sharing their knowledge!

    When you ask that question, it needs to be a sales manager. Ordinary salespeople rarely control the order bank. They’re just going to tell you what they think you want to hear. You should also ask when they intend to bump you up to priority 10 or petition the zone manager for 02. I would assume you’re behind anyone rolled over from 2022, anyone who ordered before you in MY 2023, and probably anyone with a more profitable order. Example: someone offering over sticker to jump the line. Dealers can be quite shameless in that regard. When my dad was ordering his C8 corvette, the sales manager flat out asked how much he would pay to start higher up their waiting list.

    Your dealer may have other builds prioritized ahead of you. Allocation and priority code are key. If your dealer gets 10 trucks picked up for scheduling each month and still has 30 people with buildable configurations ahead of you on their priority list, simple math tells us you’re not getting picked up for another 3 months at the earliest. Good dealers manage their order banks. When I ordered my Lariat Ultimate truck in March last year, my dealer had it bumped up to priority 02 by the summer. That guaranteed more recent orders weren’t getting scheduled before mine if parts for my truck were available. FWIW, I didn’t get built until December and the truck showed up at my dealer a few days ago. It’s a long, frustrating process.

    Right?! My dealer started the FI process for my delivery Saturday and I still can’t believe it’s happening.

    DEF Gauge

    Not sure if it still functions the same way, but my last super duty would put you into limp mode (extremely limited speed) and eventually force you to idle only, even if you have a full tank of fuel. The system is designed to prevent you from driving unless all emissions controls are functioning properly.

    Anything you receive between now and a meaningful order update is a generic “thanks for waiting” email. Ford isn’t going to tell you that your order is waiting on part ________ from this supplier, etc. It’s no news until good news.

    Any idea what the policy is in PCOs issued after order but expired before delivery? Ford marketing said the dealer has an appeal process to grandfather me in, but I’m not sure how that will shake out. Context: $2500 off if you place an order or take delivery by _______

    There may be hope for you yet! My truck was delivered to the dealer today. My rep said there was a flurry of transports sent out from Kansas City. For those keeping tabs on order times: F-250 Lariat Ultimate 6.7 CC - No 5WP, AS, wheel well liners, bed liner, or options known for delays  3/8/22 - Ordered 9/20 - Scheduled for production week of 11/28 10/4 - Production pushed back to week of 12/5 Radio silence 12/1 - Status changed from “order confirmed” to “in production” 12/13 - Built / awaiting shipment 12/14 - Received built email. Delivery window to Granger of 12/28-1/3. 12/15 - Received “shipped” email - presumably by convoy. Delivery window repeated as 12/28-1/3. 1/10 - Received delivery delayed email. New window 1/15-1/21. 1/13 - Delivered! That marks 10 months from order to delivery. Picking her up next Saturday. The wait is killing me! Best of luck to my brothers in the order queue!

    Good luck! They told me the same thing, with a dealer delivery time down to the minute. Two weeks later, the truck is still sitting at the rail yard.

    Make sure you’re having this conversation with the sales manager, not your salesperson. The manager is usually the person who manages the order bank.

    If you spent a year waiting on a 2022 order and Ford cancelled it, your dealer should have entered you at priority 10 for the new order and immediately petitioned their zone manager to upgrade you to priority 02, which grants additional scheduling consideration. It sounds like your dealer owes you an explanation for why you aren’t getting pushed to the front of their line.
