    Active Park Assist 2.0 still on hold?

    As an update, heard from my dealer this morning. Active Park Assist is still on Commodity Hold. He confirmed that the rear climate controls/rear heated seat controls are off of commodity hold
  2. Based on Ice Capade's post, we know that the 2nd Row Climate and Heated Seats controls are no longer on Commodity Hold. But does anyone know if the Active Park Assist 2.0 is still on Commodity Hold? l told my dealer that I didn't want to remove it, back in early April, because I have gotten so used to using it on my 2018 Platinum, plus I believe it ALSO removes reverse braking assist and cross traffic assist. I have emailed my dealer, but have not heard back.

    2022 Expedition Platinum

    @cyberdman Thank you for all of your help over the years. I can totally understand that it has been overwhelming lately. Good Luck on your "retirement" In reading all of the posts since I wrote the comment above, I realized that you were part of Ford's reduction in force. I've been there more than once in my career of a Chief Information Officer for public companies. As someone in the forum said, it may not seem so, but you will be better off. Things will be better, and you will land on your feet. And don't take it personally. Good Luck!

    2022 Expedition Platinum

    Hi Cyberdman, Can you take another look? Dealer Number: F11463 Order Number: 0092

    option code 88R

    According to Ford and my Dealer, Expeditions will be built without the rear climate controls and, in the case of Platinums, 2nd row heated seat controls. However, unlike the Multi-Contour massaging seats, the rear climate control will be retrofitted at no charge, once the parts are available which is predicted to be between 12 and 18 months from now. Your dealer should be able to amend the order.

    Platinum Interior

    I have this one of the dash and front seats
  7. I've never had a problem with the wireless charger on my 2018 Expedition, with either an iPhone 8 w/Otterbox case or iPhone 12 w/Otterbox case. My only complaint is that dropping the phone on the slanted charger is sometimes a bit cumbersome.

    Expedition production

    Everyone, I'm with you. I have a 2022 Platinum on order. And I know there's a ton of frustration out there, including with the dealers, for individual Expedition orders like myself, and traditional buyers who are used to walking up to a dealer on a Saturday afternoon, picking out a vehicle and buying it. I think you all, who have a 2022 Expedition on order will agree, we really want the vehicle that we ordered, with ALL of the features that were stated to be available at the time that we ordered it. If you don't, you can reach out to your dealer to remove certain features, such as Active Park Assist 2.0, Emergency rear braking, 2nd Row Climate/Audio controls, etc. Ford is Before you remove content based on Ford's scheduling enhancements, think a moment. Do you really want, as in my case, to purchase a 2022 Expedition Platinum, to live without certain content which may or may not be exclusive the model (Platinum in this case)? After a few years, do you envision purchasing a new vehicle, and expecting the best trade in possible, to trade/sell the Expedition, and you want the best possible trade-in, retail sale price? My question is, that what would you give up on the selling/trade-in side to get your- 2022 Expedition (sans much content) to have one today, without some major options that are being removed. I would not give up on the Expedition, in terms of availability or Ford, for that matter. Things are pretty bad, right across the board, including GM- and Stellantiss. This is just my 2 cents.

    Order Guide Update

    Dated 4/1/2022, but not an April Fool's Joke. More content removed. I wish Ford would be specific as to whether or not this content will be retro-fitted by the dealer when parts/chips become available. High end models (Platinum, etc.) are without Multi-Contour Seats, Park Assist 2.0 (which I heard also eliminates emergency rear braking and cross traffic alerts/braking), and 2nd row Climate Controls AND Second Row Heated Seats 2022 Expedition Order Guide 04 01 22.pdf

    Hybrid Expedition??

    I believe I read in Automotive News that late 2024, as a 2025 model after a totally redesign. Rumors have the Navigator getting a Hybrid option earlier than the Expedition
