Are those the stock cloth and vinyl seats without the premium package? It looks really good! How do they feel? Does the driver's side have lumbar adjustment? Is adjusting climate control through the touchscreen instead of hard buttons an annoyance?After almost 15 months, I finally got my 23 PHEV. Addons were trailer hitch and rear cargo mat (out of stock but did not hold build).
Ordered 02/02/2022 : $39010 MSRP
Reordered Nov 4 2022 : $40490 MSRP. $2000 transition private offer to comp
Scheduled in Jan 2023 for week of 3/16.
Unscheduled 2/15 (plant shutdown).
Rescheduled 3/9 for week of 4/14.
Delivered 4/25 : $42490 MSRP. (should have $2000 price protection)
(Dealer Website auto-listed it at $46225 with addons like pinstripe, digishield, market value adjustment...)
I paid current MSRP minus the transition private offer. Dealer was confused about the same year MSRP price protection. I got a signed form saying if they get the comp after 60 days, they will refund me. (Ford reimburses the dealer 45-60 days, they just did not apply at time of sale.)
I told them no dealer addons. They said they had to apply some protection package, but no charge to me. I agreed. (Another dealer said they had a contract to apply similar to all vehicles.)
Car had 0% battery when I arrived. They made some excuse about their charger not working. Car comes with 120v charger. That worked fine at my home.
Financed with Ford at 0% for 36 months. Dealer had trouble finding that offer. Started with 4% and claimed website was wrong for PHEV. I asked to double check and they "found" the 0%.
I did not get any battery/material sourcing paperwork. Will be contacting the dealer about what is needed. Odd that it looks digital, yet still visible when the car is off.

I have a 2023 PHEV non-premium on order, but ended up getting a 2022 PHEV instead since I was worried about the 2023 PHEV losing eligibility on tax rebate.
The 2022 technically has better features than the 2023 we ordered with features like pano roof, memory seats, B&O sound system, and full faux leather seats, but my wife and I don't use the memory seats or pano roof. The leather seat also gets extremely hot in the summer here in Texas. So the cloth seats might actually be preferable. I like 2023's infotainment and exterior styling.
If we can trade in the 2022 ($44k+TTL msrp, $41.5k+TTL) after discounts for $37k to the dealer then it would be an even swap. I highly doubt we can get $37k in trade-in though.
What's the gauge on the right side of the driver's display?
