That blue really pops in the sun!
@ddpt, mine was build 1/29 with an estimated delivery of 25 Feb-3 Mar..
Unfortunately, I wont be able to pick up until mid-late March :\
If your talking about my interior...I was pleasantly surprised when I first saw it inside the dealer delivery bay (yes, this is a fancy newish ford dealer, not like my local one that looks like it’s had ZERO updates since 1969), the seats looked very subdued, almost grey...the blue does show up in direct sunlight, but once tinted, they really will look more like a “steel grey” .

One last thing regarding delivery....
As per everyone else’s experiences...
My tires were WAY over inflated!
It was NEGATIVE 16 degrees out and the tires were 42 PSI....
This means that they were closer to 50 inside the dealer when it was prepped!
Take a tire pressure gauge with you and adjust before your drive home!!

Yes; I mean the blue Recaros!
Well, I can start by saying. Nobody at 2 separate dealerships new a damn thing about all the new features. Including the so called specialist at ford when a called the morning before ordering and was told the blue portion on the Recaro was not suede/aka antra. The GM at the first dealerships told me the same thing. I stressed this would be an everyday truck and I wanted all leather. I came home that Friday and found out over the weekend that the Recaro were alacantra/ suede type material. Called the GM told him we needed to change to the standard seats which by the way I was told was all leather too. Just like the 18 on their showroom. And he told sorry can’t do that the orders already placed. So I called my cc company canceled the deposit and went to another dealership too order my truck. While ordering the truck at the 2nd dealership the GM is arguing with me telling me the wheels havnt changed. I had to shut him up with a pic off auto trader. He was quite embarrassed. Then he told me the screw had a 6ft bed???? False info across the board. I mean come on the f150 is fords bread and butter. I can’t believe this shit so far. But it gets better. So he assures the standard interior is just like his 18 on his floor as well. So fast forward a couple of weeks and I find out the 19 standard interior has cloth bolsters. I can’t fucking believe it at this point. I downgraded the Recaro a because of this problem. Now I’m stuck with the same problem?? Really??? So I called and the 2nd dealer got it changed back too Recaro. I figure I can ger some seat covers. So about a month has gone by and I contact Ford performance and they say the vehicle says transit. And of course my dumbass is like “great where is it in transit too? The factory, rail yard, dealer. And the guys like “ no dumbass it’s a ford transit van”. Lol.... wtf. Called the dealer bitched him out and told him my truck better be in order. Contacted ford performance again and they still havnt even started on my order. And was told the order was placed the day after I bitch the dealer out. Called the dealer about the delay and was told no raptors are being built at the moment. I contacted ray at ford performance and he couldn’t believe a GM would tell me that and said thought it was unreal they would say that. So ya, Ford is a fucking joke so far. This is my first Ford and I’m already regretting it and the truck isn’t even here. I don’t mind waiting. I waited 4 months for my skyline. I just don’t like getting yanked around and Being lied too. Furthermore, I had too findout all the info on the truck myself when I should be able to rely o. The manufacturer and dealer for that info. Anymore bullshit and I’m going too cancel and buy a different vehicle. Ford is a fucking joke so far. No wonder the company is in the shitter right now.
I don't understand why you switched from the standard seats back to the Recaros due to the cloth bolsters. 90% of the standard leather seats is still leather. The Recaros have way less leather and I still think it will not wear well.
I say cancel your order and don't buy a raptor. Just move on and save yourself from future rants.
