According to today’s post by Ford, the handling package cannot be ordered until January 2021. On another forum, the guy that posts the order guides equated a handling package allocation to the painted stripe allocation on a GT500. So if you’re looking for a handling package car, ask the dealer if they were allocated any painted stripe GT500’s (not the vinyl stripes) or forged aluminum rim Raptors (similar limited commodity allocations) for 2020.That's interesting. When the press releases first came out in June they claimed that to get the appearance pkg, you had to get the handling pkg, and to get the handling pkg you could only get the Tremec.
I guess I'll find out Monday when my order gets written. I noticed Gregg's order doesn't mention the handling pkg. I assumed appearance/handling were being used as interchangeable names.
