2022 Ford F-150 Retail Orders Will End This Friday

Over the past few months, Ford has stopped taking orders for a number of new models as the semiconductor chip shortage and various other supply chain issues continue to limit automotive production across the board. Now, sources familiar with the matter have told Ford Authority that 2022 Ford F-150 retail orders are set to end this coming Friday, May 13th, 2022.

Friday will be the last day for dealers to submit 2022 Ford F-150 retail orders. This applies to all trim levels and powertrain combinations except for the F-150 Raptor, though it’s currently unclear if customers will still be able to order that model after Friday’s deadline, too. Sources have told Ford Authority that this move is being made amid surging demand for the F-150. However, in spite of this change, dealers will still be able to order stock inventory, which means that buyers who miss out on a retail order will still have the opportunity to purchase a 2022 Ford F-150 from a dealer.

The 2022 F-150 is just the latest new Ford model that has seen retail orders shut down due to demand exceeding the automaker’s production capacity. Recently, FoMoCo said that the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning was sold out in April, and stopped taking orders for the 2022 Ford Maverick back in January, the 2022 Ford Mustang Mach-E last month, and the 2022 Ford Super Duty in April as well.

The F-150 is one of the main vehicles awaiting semiconductor chips at the moment, and as Ford Authority reported last month, the Ford F-Series accounted for the majority of the automaker’s retail orders in March, while around half of Ford’s sales in April came from customer orders.

    I like the raptor and I have the first Gen but the new ones totally out of my price range.Now I also like the new lightning but again cost.

    Can’t even imagine when someone ordering their truck today would take delivery. I ordered my ’22 4.5 months ago and still don’t have a build date or anything.

    1. AP

      Just got my build date yesterday after ordering my F250 in December. Yes 5 months!

    2. Roman

      Not encouraging mine has been 3 1/2 months

  3. Steve Palmisano

    Ordered my KR on Christmas took delivery May 1. Love the truck

    I ordered my F-150 Platinum 4×4 with the 701a Package, Max Tow Package and Black Appearance Package on March 19, 2022. I received a “we got your order” e-mail on March 19. I’ve heard nothing more from Ford.
    When I call the dealer, they know no more than I do. Specially, they don’t have any idea when the build date will be scheduled. Lemons into Lemonade; I’ll keep saving for the down payment. :):)

    Ordered my F-150 King Ranch 27 Nov 21, and according to Ford’s tracking system it is expected to be delivered to the dealership between 12-18th of May. So apparently its taking 5-6 months to build a truck. It sat in the “being built” stage for over 45 days, so chip issue, latency in Ford’s tracking system any other number of reasons. Hoping to lay eyes on it next week!

    Geez. Good luck to anyone trying to get one of these. I ordered a Maverick last June and the “delivery date” has come and gone, with updated ones coming and going since February. No idea if I will even get it at this point. Ridiculous.

  7. AEM

    I ordered my f150 August 6, 2021 and just received a build date of June 6, 2022. Fold flat seat and parking assist were removed in order to get it in production. I’m hoping the parking assist can be added later. Not holding my breath, but hoping that date will stick.

  8. Josh

    Ordered 28 Jan. Still haven’t heard anything. A little communication would be amazing. I hate buying vehicles. Literally the worst experience ever. I’m sure somebody knows something. Like what parts is it waiting on? Too bad we can’t just opt for some used parts.

  9. Ron Huemiller

    Still waiting on my F-150 Ordered on Dec Buili in Jan was to be to us by march Common Ford get your Chips together and finish the job or be prepared to give us a free pickup this wait has gone on way too long with out any word from you

    Ordered a ’22 F150 XLT on Nov 23, 2021. Was given the customary “twelve to sixteen weeks” timeline. Called at 16 weeks just to see where things were at (yes, I had to call them…) and no information, just that the order was still in the system. Called back after hearing nothing at 6 months, was told it’s been built but waiting on a chip, no estimate on when it might actually be delivered. The dealer did take the time to tell me how fortunate I was because I got my order in before they stopped taking them…
