Latest 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning Order Conversion Details Revealed

As Ford Authority reported back in December, 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning order conversions for reservation holders have been taking place in staggered “waves.” The first such wave took place back in January, with the second following just a couple of weeks later. Ford recently announced that the next wave would go out this summer, but sources familiar with the matter have told Ford Authority that several other waves of order invitations have already been sent to reservation holders.

In fact, five total waves of order conversion invitations have already been sent out to reservation holders, and those customers had the opportunity to convert their orders at various points through March 31st. Customers that chose not to follow through and convert their reservations to orders by their respective cut-off dates or those that did not choose to extend their reservation if their preferred configuration was sold out had their orders canceled.

Meanwhile, wave six of these 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning order conversion invitations is being sent out today to select reservation holders, who will have until April 29th to convert those reservations to orders.

As Ford Authority previously reported, the first batch of 2022 F-150 Lightning scheduled for production emails has already been sent out as the EV pickup remains on track for a spring launch. Due to higher than expected demand, however – coupled with the fact that most reservation holders are expected to order an F-150 Lightning – Ford has been forced to put fleet orders on hold and will ultimately have to push some orders to the 2023 model year or later.

    Just got the 5th wave invite on 4/12/22 from Ford as one of the last remaining (clean up) slots available for the 2022 F150 Lightning. Unfortunately they were out of the Pro (XL) and XLT trims so had to order the Lariat trim at $70K. Not happy with a “street truck” (20″ wheels, running boards, leather, technology) but at least if I flip her later, it can pay for the XLT I really wanted. Hoping the $7500 Federal tax credit is good in 2023 and getting about $6000 state & local rebates….

    Have not received an order for my vehicle.
    Placed my order last year. Hope, I am in the next wave

    I’ll be glad to see 2025 model year come around. Hopefully all this will be settled down by then and we can actually go to a dealership and get a Lightning, Maverick, or Bronco, equipped the way we want at a decent price. I’m sure this is a good problem for Ford to have right now, but these supply chain issues are unsustainable for the health of the company.
