Ford F-Series Dealer Stock Higher Than Rivals At End Of April

By now, most are well aware of the fact that new vehicle inventory is slim these days, thanks to ongoing supply chain issues including the semiconductor chip shortage. This includes the Ford F-Series line of pickups – the Ford F-150 and Ford Super Duty – neither of which are available for retails orders in the 2022 model year due to high demand. However, it seems as if those interested in purchasing a new Ford F-Series pickup off a dealer lot are better off than shoppers seeking out trucks from other brands, according to the automaker’s April sales report.

At the conclusion of last month, Ford had a total of 83,000 F-Series pickups in gross stock, which was more than any other nameplate in the full-size pickup segment. It isn’t a huge number by any means – particularly when compared to pre-COVID years, but it’s notable, nonetheless.

Ford stopped taking orders for 2022 Super Duty models back in late April, while the 2022 F-150 followed suit just last Friday, both due to high demand that exceeds the automaker’s production capacity. Prior to that, FoMoCo stopped offering Max Recline Seats on the F-150 due to supply chain constraints, while the popular pickup also recently gained Active Park Assist 2.0 and auto stop/start removal options.  The highly-profitable F-Series lineup also represents a large portion of Blue Oval vehicles currently awaiting semiconductor chips.

Meanwhile, select 2022 Ford F-150 models are currently available with a $1,500 Bonus Cash offer, though FoMoCo also recently eliminated a custom order discount on the best-selling model, along with a host of other models including the Ford Expedition, Ford EcoSport, Ford Ranger, and Ford Transit Connect.

Brett's lost track of all the Fords he's owned over the years and how much he's spent modifying them, but his current money pits include an S550 Mustang and 13th gen F-150.
