  4. Not really-its on the updated C platform, which I'm assuming is based on what the older Escape was on.
  5. The Renegade is roughly 14 inches shorter then the 2020 Escape...I don't think the Baby Bronco will be that small-The Renegade is little bigger then the Ecosport
  6. Its slightly crazy that a midsize sedan of today is faster then a 1960s Muscle car in the same categories and a 2019 Mustang GT offers supercar performance of the 1990s or so.
  7. Why wouldn't be C2 based in some form to keep costs down? Its not like you have to deal with packaging limitations with a engine and transmission-the motors fit in between the wheels and the batteries are under the passenger cell. I'd assume the passenger crash cell is very similar to C2 and the front subframe is tweaked bit since it doesn't need to fit an engine it.

  9. https://www.motor1.com/reviews/365965/2020-lincoln-aviator-first-drive/ What color is this? It looks amazing IMO
  10. Uh....no-$35,630 for a Base GT
  11. I wonder if the rumored 7 speed manual will make it to the Bronco and Mustang.
  12. Is it me, or does it seem to have a really long wheelbase? I'm starting to get a high belt line mustang vibe from it.
  13. I have full on expectations of it starting north of $40K-we aren't going to see an "affordable" BEV for another 5-10 years.
  14. Yeah what is under the camo is pretty much spot on for that..I don't see the "concept" at the ford presentation being longer, considering the silhouette behind it is the fullsized Bronco Doing some math: 2020 Escape OL 180.5″ 2020 Edge OL 188" 2020 Everest OL 192" 2019 Ranger 210" I'm assuming the fullsized Bronco will be right around the Edge and Everest in size and the Baby Bronco will be similar to the 2020 Escape-going by that photo with the silhouette, its roughly 180" L or so
  15. In the grand scheme of things, what is Ford doing? Wouldn't it make more sense to build all the BEVs together in a single plant? Rumor control has this: Model E built in Mexico at Cuautitlán Stamping and Assembly Plant-Sales expectations? 30-40K? Presumably larger Ford/Lincoln BEV at Flat Rock for an expected production run of 65K combined. This article is claiming they where originally supposed to go to Mexico, where the Model E is supposed to be built (I can't open it now at work-some reason proxy server doesn't like autoblog) https://www.autoblog.com/2019/08/20/lincoln-continental-production-end-flat-rock-ev/ I'd assume full production rates for both plants would be in the 200-300K range. Flat Rock has the Mustang, which varies from 80-120K sales a year already. Are they planning on a Lincoln Sedan to replace the MKZ/Continental in NA? I can see the Coni being imported from China, but given whats happening with trade these days...well So what is happening with the Mexican plants? They are getting a multitude of C class products, like the Baby Bronco, Transit Connect, Transit Pickup, and so on? That seems like it would only keep one plant busy. The Fusion "replacement" is coming, but I don't think it will exactly sell in Fusion like numbers (200K+) and you lose MKZ production also. Then add in Oakville-the Edge/Nautilus sales will most likely be impacted by the new mid size BEVs and they are losing the Flex/MKT also-what product is going there?
  16. The are also padded as part of the camo
  17. The greenhouse is similar till you get the C-pillar that has that lower up kick to it. My wife doesn't like the 2020 Escape-said it looks too much like a Subaru for her like or a station wagon. I think she'll love this since she had a 2010 Escape and that was her favorite.
  18. Well maybe Ford will recycle the Taurus and Continental names on the new BEVs LOL
  19. The black wheels are 17 inch wheels, while the upgraded wheels are 19 inchers and TBH, they aren't that great looking Vs
  20. https://shop.ford.com/build/escape/2020/#/select/ About 34K for a fairly well loaded Hybrid Sport AWD...the only thing I don't like is it removes the black wheels if you want Copilot360 option with it
  21.

  22. it might be lining up with the release for the MPG numbers for it and the Explorer Hybrid?
  23. Depends-they might an early preview and it goes into production in the Spring/Summer of next year, making it technically a 2021 MY product.
  24. Apparently it was just added after I posted about it LOL https://www.cnet.com/roadshow/news/2020-ford-escape-pricing-configurator/
  25. Depends on the profitability of it-there might a way of making the dies that press out the side sections of the Bronco compatible with a 2 and 4 door design. Like splitting it at the B pillar some how...
