I have posted a couple of other comments about my adventure trying to order a 2023 with the x-plan. Emailed the dealer 2 days ago telling them I wanted to see the Ford order confirmation, and got no response. So I found another dealer that would honor the x-plan pricing, stopped by and got the order in this afternoon. Before I got back home I had the email confirmation from Ford. It includes a line about "your order is one of the early orders for 2023 Expedition Limited" along with a warning about quality assurance process and delays... Good news/bad news combination there. But finally it seems there is some progress. So next week I go to fight with the other dealer for my deposit back.
Limited with SPP, HD trailer tow, Suspension road preview, ControlTrac electronic locking diff, 15" Sync 4A in Infinite Blue (My wife forbid me from buying another black car... Funny story.)

For those that are interested, some years ago we had a Ford Flex, a BMW X1, and a BMW 540i. All in black. We were going somewere one night, and my wife asked "which car are we taking?" I told her "The black one", to which she replied "OK" and she went outside. I got out about 3-4 minutes later to find her looking back and forth between the fleet trying to decide which black car to get into. So I can no longer order a black car. Damn, this SPP would look so good in black.... But now our other car is blue, so guess what is coming down the road.... I will not be beaten.

Picked mine up today, so far love it! Although If I had the choice I would have chosen different Rims. I’m calling her Black Beauty

Is that the dealer I thought might give you problems?

It is the one you suggested I run away from, yes. And I will be stopping by to arrange for a refund next week. I am not sure why the dealers in South Carolina are reluctant to honor that x-plan deal, especially on an $80,000 sale. I could understand on a $20k car. But the overall cut of that $85k is better than nothing.
The second dealer told me that this model year (2023) customer direct orders are going to count against his inventory order allocation. Not sure about that, but it is the reason he was using to push back on taking the order. He did promise no added fees so I am pretty happy now.
Dang @JohnSC , after seeing @Tyra New ride, you sure you dont want black. That bad boy is looking mean.
It really does look great I agree. But I have had nothing but black (and a very dark blue that most people think is black) cars for 15 years now, it is time for something different. So nope, sticking with my blue.

Note - the new Jewel Red is really nice too.

I'm with you on the "stealth" rims of the 303A or 304A. I don't get why they aren't edge to edge black. also I don't like the chrome along windows or inside around drive control on console. and lastly if someone picks a stealth package the paint should at least not be metallic since it adds shiny which takes away from stealth look. Paint should really be flat matte but at least if the metallic flake was taken out would be more "stealth". its like they need to have a blacked out package and a true stealth both with same features but one is shiny black accent and other is dulled out black
