I am wondering if I should wait for my 2022 MME Premium that I ordered a few days ago and wait 28+ weeks or get a 2021 from a Dealer's inventory. 2021 Premium is $2000 cheaper than a 2022 especially for an extended range battery. Other than a slightly better battery (which a 2021 might get one in the future through a software update), are there any major things that one should go for a 2022 model when a cheaper 2021 model is available locally?

Did you find one available in a dealer’s inventory with no ADM? If so, I‘d buy it now. If you have enough tax liability for two tax credits, sell the 2021 for a profit when your 2022 arrives.

I would get the 2021 if it is the color you want. Use the savings for tint and ppf. How many miles are currently on the ‘21? Keep us up to date😀

Good idea. I didn't think of that. Thanks!

I saw a couple on Ford's website, but that probably isn't the correct/latest information? I'll have to call and ask around tomorrow. I'll keep everyone posted.

Buy both, flip at least one for a profit, that is if you can get the '21 for no ADM.

Get the vin no. of your offer and look up the build date. If it’s fairly new or built within 3 months and no person has owned it with mileage under 200 miles, it may be good buy. if you plan on a federal rebates, etc. , that is why it’s important that no one else has owned it.

I got my 2021 when the guy who ordered it took a powder. Dark Matter Gray instead of the black I had on order, AWD instead of RWD, no ADM, and in my hands that day. The 22 changes are minor. A no brainer, so I'm enjoying my new MME!

From my area, I think dealers list every car that shows up, even reserved/customer ordered cars that hasn't been picked up yet.

I'm curious if you can buy one off the lot without any mark up since they are easy $$ for dealers to put a slight mark-up and not have to wait in line.

The 2021 and 2022 batteries are identical, and in fact the update has hit the first half 2021 cars already, so it's a non-issue.

You should keep in mind that buying a 2021, in 2022, normally would be a bad thing as far as depreciation and value, vs. buying a new model 2022.

That said, if you can find one at MSRP, you might buy it.
