I really wish these dealers would stop telling people that. Sorry your order was canceled that is a total bummer. Will you begin searching for something in stock?
Car Gurus website has over 150 2021/2022 GT500'S for sale. So they're out there to be bought by anyone who wants one :)

My dealer told me there will be a limited run of 2023 GT500's, like 1500 max when he canceled my order. I'm holding out hope :rolleyes:
Your dealer is one of many uniformed dealers spreading false information.

Yup!
Yes, sir. I picked it up 2 weeks.

I live near Dearborn and I see a lot of the test mules around here and I have seen that exact car driving the streets.

I got to talk to the guy driving it one day and he told me 761hp, 0-60 in 1.9 seconds and a top speed of 223 so you were very accurate, Tim. It’s made out of a new material called stainless carbon microfiber cloth so it actually will keep itself clean so no need for expensive PPF. It also comes fully equipped with a manual dual clutch automatic transmission for those people that want the best of both worlds.
Wait for it….Wait for it….. I’m sure someone on here has one ordered…just waiting for the dealership to get their allocation..🤥🤥🤥

Obviously Ford won't go mid-engined with the GT500 when they already have the Ford GT. What Ford is lacking though is a sporty vehicle with more than 2 doors that's not a crossover or a pickup truck. This is why the 2023 model is being expanded to include the new 2023 GT500 Rapid Wagon model.

Damn! That’s a good looking wagon! Wouldn’t that be fun! Too bad Ford would never do this.

Yea. It's an Audi RS6 Avant which is probably the most badass wagon on the planet to begin with, and the hyper aggressive angular front end of the GT500 fits it better than it fits the curvy S550 body in my opinion. Would love to see a GT500 Wagon personally.

As cool as that would be, it would diminish the badassery identity a hair of the 20-22 GT500. As it is now, to get the performance, you can only get it in a GT500 coupe. If you add others to the mix, it waters it down.

None-the-less, it is a sexy ass wagon!

Holy wonder wagons Batman!!!!!! I love that thing. I've always thought the Audi wagons looked cool tricked out. I would drive the living hell out of that. The stance is perfect.

Yes they are. The truck weighs about 2000 lbs more than the 2020-2022 GT500, so my statement about you can only get the performance with a GT500 coupe is still accurate.

So putting that motor in the Raptor only serves to " diminish the badassery identity a hair ", correct ??
