I think your dealer is wrong; Ford has, however, experienced documented problems with their online configurator tool. See the attached link about possible discontinuation of the F150 power stroke that was reported on by another site related article. Ford reportedly anticipated the diesel option to become about 5% of their F150 purchases, I doubt they would dump it and leave their American counterparts to pick up their sales.

Probably just an ill-informed rumor...

I just went on this site https://shop.ford.com and built my dream 2021 F150 Platinum with an oil burner. I printed off a 7 page summary but here is a screen shot of the vitals:

I've been on the fence of getting a new diesel. Ford does not offer the diesel in a race red Which seems crazy that they make you choose between colors with curtain packages I might be crazy but I think I might get a 3.0l duramax they have it in bright red

I just took delivery of a Racy Red F150 3.0 diesel. I tried to order my truck on 1/15/21. After 8 weeks with the engine on back order I found the lead time for orders of an F150 was 16 to 18 weeks. That's when I started to search the Ford inventory. I did not find any till March and that was 250 miles away. I was not looking for a Racy Red but the 3.0 Diesels are hard to find. I think Ford did not start to build the F150 3.0 diesel until February. My truck has a build date of 2/21. Good luck finding a Racy Red with the right equipment.

I noticed that a dealer near me (Fort Wayne, IN) had two 2021's on the lot last week. Looked today and one sold already, it was ruby red metallic. He still has one left. Its a white lariat. Good news to see them selling, I suspect he will order more if he can keep moving them. Sticker from the lariat is attached. Build date of 03/25/21

@Andy - good to see some dealers are being brave enough to order F150 PSDs for their lots, as my dealer is definitely "gun shy" after their initial 2018 PSD sales record (that I documented in Post #2 of the Why so few 3.0 PSD's? thread)

I did take a look at the window sticker you posted and few things jumped out at me:
  1. $500 3.0L Diesel discount (highlighted in green) = Yay!
  2. $3800 3.0L V6 Turbo Diesel engine upcharge (highlighted in yellow) = Boooo!
  3. 5yr/100K PowerStroke Diesel engine warranty clearly spelled out in Warranty section (in blue)
    • This was not the case for 2018 models that led to owner confusion
