    I agree and it appears that Farley does too. It seems that he's going forward with the GE2 and TE1 BEV architecture for BEVs in North America instead of the MEB-based vehicles as in Europe.

    The bodyless chassis is a pretty cool view of the R's underpinnings.

    I decided to put this in the Ford discussion area because I think the issues being considered by Toyota are the same that Ford are considering (or should be). This part reminds me a bit of the news that the Mach E chassis is being abandoned in favor of a 'next gen' (GEII?) EV chassis : Much more in the article: https://europe.autonews.com/automakers/toyota-rethinks-electric-car-strategy?utm_source=daily&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=20221025&utm_content=article3-headline

    2023 Escape

    Generally not unless fleet pricing yields a higher discount on the more expensive Bronco Sport. Escape starts off less, even when bumping to AWD (which a municipal fleet wouldn't likely have unless they needed it frequently). Unless BS holdback is much higher, there's less room between invoice and MSRP on the more expensive BS (thus Plan pricing is less of a discount than on Escape). Plus, a fleet of Sports would have higher operational costs, including fuel.

    The most telling argument against Toyota’s ev commitment is the BYD based Corolla, that is being done exactly because Toyota cannot compete on electrification costs, it and VW Group are in a big hole. Speaking of VW, Ford should be running from MEB, that thing bleeds money, it’s expensive to build and not cost effective against Tesla. Ford should just stick with its own designs rather than buying a pack of German woe..

    Toyota has tried. They have a BEV that stumbled out the gate (wheels fell off). The Lexus version has been advertised a lot lately.

    That's a very smart image-oriented marketing strategy on Ford's part.

    2023 Escape

    Why are they using photos with the check engine and battery lights on, and a battery that is showing 98% charged and 1 Mile range. They really don't care about details and subliminal messaging.

    Nice update, but the unveiling has to be one of the worst I’ve even seen from Ford.

    Thank you Harley Lover. Akio Toyoda and Jim Farley alike understand the how critical it is to develop totally different, BEV optimized platforms amid the ongoing automotive industry revolution. I think both executives have also embraced the truth that Blue Oval Forums member GrussGott mentioned on this site earlier this year regarding BEV manufacturing.

    Just rented a 2022 Explorer

    The features you mention have existed for over a decade. The locks with the fob in your pocket is really nice when you're juggling a couple small kids like I did for the first couple years we had our explorer. As others have mentioned, the fuel cap is one less thing to worry about, and has a flap to prevent siphoning. My explorer and F150 both have a funnel you have to use with a fuel can in the event you're dumb enough to run out of fuel. And if you want to lock, unlock, or start your vehicle from miles away, there's an app for that. As for your rental cars, as someone who has the joy of renting nearly weekly, welcome to the reality of the modern world. When everyone stopped traveling, the rental companies sold off their fleets. Like everyone else, they can't replace them right now with new vehicles, and you get to pay a lot more for a lot more miles.

    In the new FDNB (Fleet Distribution News Bulletin) released late today, Ford is stating that the 2023MY Super Duty Order Guide will be released on 10/25/2022, ahead of the USOB (Unscheduled Order Bank) opening on 10/27/2022.

    1999-2016 Super Duty Cab Issue

    That's just it. While there is no question that personal injury lawsuits have become a big windfall for plaintifs and attorneys, this case is worrisome for Ford considering the number of accidents and the number of trucks that may have potentially weak cabs. I remember first hearing about Super Duty cabs collapsing in roll-overs many years ago, which is why this particular case caught my attention. In any event, these trucks will be scutinized just like the 1973-1987 GM trucks with their 'side saddle' fuel tanks. I wonder if a 'smoking gun' is discovered and Ford is proven to be liable for these accidents it may cause them to spin off 'Ford Blue' to shield 'Ford E'.
