Yeah none of these trucks will be for sale. Most (if not all) will be crushed after they fulfill their purpose over the next few weeks or months.

Essentially these are for their quality control team to review? That’s what I’m interpreting.

These are part of the Production Process Prove-Out Program. By requirement for all purposes they must be saleable units. These are milestone units just ahead of Job #1 called Integrated Build

Does that actually mean they will eventually be sold? Or is it just a requirement that they be sellable for QA or media purposes

I am in development so I’m just going through the definition terms on explaining it. I don’t know how the process works. I do know that our pre-production units in testing are not built at the factories, cannot be sold, and get crushed at the end of their life. I think how these work at least from going through the VIN’s background, these are built by the plant to be sold to Ford. I know that might sound weird but this is just how it works even for us. These carry a real actual VIN but will likely never be sold publicly. Media reviewers will get them as will Leadership Level Ford employees for company lease vehicles. For all intents and purposes these are a production vehicle, just not mass production (Job 1)

There is a slight possibility that they 'could' end up at Dealer Auction sites once their original purpose is done.
I'd venture the Lease and Leadership level are the ones that could possibly, with the media flog vehicles being crushed once they've been thrashed and then gone over.

Just my uneducated guess.
