points taken and that seems more fair, but why not just put in a new FE order now and cancel the Premium order? Seems like any new FE order would be delivered sooner anyway. You still can order an FE today, whatever color you choose of the 3. What's different is the process. That said, no info on the delivery schedule for the newer vs original FE orders. They still say December at Ford's listed FE program number. I'm skeptical.Pushing back later orders has never been the issue, IMO. It's about ignoring reservation priority. They cut off FE reservations way back on November 26. Thousand since then might have wanted an FE for 2020 delivery but had to order a Premium for 2021 delivery instead. Now they're ignoring priority and just letting anyone line-cut. Not cool.
It would have been better if they just kept these extras secret and offered them to a handful of preferred dealers (which I suspect happens anyway). Publicly ignoring reservation priority like this is a bigger hit to their credibility/good will.
The right way to do this would have been to start a waitlist for the extra FEs when it became apparent they might have some. And only award upgrades by reservation priority (the reason reservation priority exists).
