I can confirm that the F-150 Lightning has officially achieved OKTB (OK-To-Buy) status for all trims.

OKTB means that preproduction has ended, supply and assembly readiness has been established and the vehicle is finally saleable to the public. The first batches have been completed and are ready to be shipped to dealers and end customers.

It's on!!

Wow. Who thought this would actually happen in 2022 when the unveiling happened? I did not. I reserved within the first 60 seconds and got a great place in line. But I remember thinking March 2023 will be the first production truck (clinks glass to celebrate being wrong).

I don't think Ford and Lightning team gets enough credit for this. They've managed to launch this vehicle less than a year after the May 2021 unveiling in the face of unprecedented supply chain crisis. They overdelivered on many of their promised specs like HP and payload, and even managed to sell a few sub-$40K trucks to lucky customers. The ordering process is far from perfect but I think they're doing their best to move away from the prevailing sales model given the constraints imposed by the dealer junta.

I'm sure they're going to learn from their unpopular decisions like communication about trim availability and the Grinchy December dealer prioritization scheme.
