Hello,

I was about to place the order and then they raised the price. Anyone want to give up their order? I don’t care what place it’s on, as long as it’s before March 1st.

Second question, I was intending to tow a boat with this. Do I still need the quad motors for that? If roads require chains because of snow, will the dual motor suffice or only quad motor?

The dual motor option will be a good choice, if you are willing to wait another 2 years. There's still plenty of HP and torque for pulling a trailer. We don't have a lot of details on it yet, but it should compare with the Ford 150 Lightning, which has 2 motors.

Thanks @EaglesPDX. Are they saying orders can’t be transferred? I’m not looking to resell. I’ve been on the fence fo a few weeks when I finally got the OK from the wife. The new pricing is just too much.

Thank you @JEV Do you know if I’ll still be required to put chains in the snow where required? With my current truck (AWD) they don’t which is very convenient.

How could anyone but you possibly know the answer to this? Chain laws and regulations are not Federal, and we don't know where you live. It should be pretty easy to look up the rules on the DOT website for your state. And if you're planning on traveling out of state you'll probably want to figure that out for other states on your route.

You still get AWD with 2 motors. The benefits to a 4 motor version are mainly for off road and rock crawling. Just get the AT 20" tires and it will be fine in winter.
