like a new order or modifying existing? if it is new who know what constraints will look like by the time you are picked.
get what you want/need. if you want it wired (i.e. tow) i would have it done stock, if you just want a hitch for a bike or something do aftermarket.
pretty sure they said that they will open up september order bank for january build moving forward.
only thing getting produced until then are fe or ones that are in the pipe waiting for a mic. odds are if you have no vin you wont get one until january at the earliest.
like anything else:
if the salvage cost (shipping, breakdown, etc.) is lower then new then they will savage.
otherwise destroy, you don't want faulty mic in the wild. looks bad for the brand and a warranty tracking nightmare.
My understanding too.
When you reserved (preordered) you are required to pick a dealer. I think the only way to change dealers is call Ford before you order.
If you ordered (for example 3/19 deadline) this is your dealer lock. You ordered through them, there is no way to change dealers post...

My dealer gave me some clarity on this the other day. Nothing official from Ford but basically the following:
Price protection is for what you have ordered. That's it. Change model, add SAS, change engine the price isn't protected.
They are not anticipating a major jump in prices. You may...
price protection is only for what you have ordered. changes to your order will likely incur a price increase from what was listed.
demand is so high there will be no discounted msrp. historically inflation and prices go up over time; in the last 10 years new vehicles went up 4% with inflation...
original announcement below. nothing close to producing a year ago. so mainstream prod was supposed to start in june, now january. and note they are producing, just fe and select early res.
preorders opened: July 14, 2020
once you preordered they stated early 2021 they will be able to...
