Car not level

My 2017 is just a couple of months old, and I just noticed something weird. The left rear of the car is a quarter of an inch lower than the right side. This is with nothing in the trunk except the spare tire and jack with no passengers. All tires are at 32 psi cold.

Is this adjustable somehow? Will Ford say this is within tolerances?

The slightly lower left rear is quite visible to the eye when standing behind the car. I'm a bit worried that the extra weight on the left rear will lead to uneven wear and tear. And yes, I've already thought of putting a sand bag in the right rear of the trunk. Ha, ha......

Any ideas?

Wouldn't worry too much about the tire wear. As Zhent stated, take in and let them look at it. Can't hurt to hear what they say.

Thanks for the replies. Since this will probably require that the car be left at the dealership for a day, it may be a month or two before I can report back. Thanks.
