If you look at more recent trucks it’s definitely gotten better: look at the red one in the photos from that NY event and it seems well aligned. Some of these early ones could have been partially put together by hand. Who knows. But if you get it and something isn’t aligned don’t take delivery until they fix it. The hood on my 2020 Expedition didn’t have even gaps, but a few twists of the under hood bumpers corrected the issue.The alignment of the right side of the light bar is really bothering me for some reason. I've seen it in many different press/spy photos so it's not just this model.
