Watched it again and see what you mean. Still, it seems unlikely that such a problem could occur on the first start or two after delivery. Had it been knocking in Flat Rock, I'm gonna presume that it wouldn't have been shipped. Also, haven't I read that the motor won't start if oil quantity is very low?

1, that doesnt look like a dealership service center to me, so id be curious about the " 4 miles"

and as other stated, very doubtful it would leave the plant like that. mine had 5 miles on it when it arrived

No way it leaves the plant making that noise. No way.

FWIW, my Ford dealership is a very old one and it looks just like this one in the video.

Valve retaining clip break? It’s possible. Some people get that one in a million new failure. I’ll take that engine if they want to part with it.

I’d laugh if it was a loose exhaust manifold but it’s knocking on heavens door for sure! Had to relisten

100% agree. It undergoes a diagnostic dyno before it rolls off the line.

Somebody, somewhere, had a little bit of fun with that car before the video. I doubt it was during transportation, because they ship in transport mode.

Either dealer, or the new owner.

Why don't you think it looks like a dealership service center?

Right!

Maybe it went to that idiot in Vegas first, the one who owns the rental place?????

I don't know which idiot got to it, but I don't think it was ford. As mad as I am at Dearborn right now, they should not be blamed for this.
