    Hitch Cover

    You might want to look at one of these. I think it would be a better solution. https://www.autostopeliminator.com/collections/products-for-lincoln-vehicles/products/2020-lincoln-aviator-autostop-eliminator
  2. I'm wondering if this setup will deliver better FE than the hybrid Escape. It has me interested...

    Another electric truck being built. Haven't heard of this one before. https://www.cnn.com/2019/11/08/business/gm-lordstown-plant-sale-electric-pickup/index.html

    Tesla pickup reveal Nov 21st

    Number of trucks Tesla has built: 0 Number of trucks Ford has built: More than 1 Winner: Ford. 😛
  5. My local dealer had white, black, and a red on the lot. I thought they all looked fine in each color. I'm not a fan of the longer hood. But I could live with it. I was really hoping to look at the Corsair they had. But it was inside and dealers are closed on Sundays here.

    Free replacement part FOREVER

    Don't the sell a front wheel drive version over there?
  7. Under the Magnuson-Moss act, they can't require a dealership. They can require schedules, and specs to fluids. But if those are met by any shop, or even the customer doing it themselves, they have to cover the Warranty. So if you documented the oil you used and the dates, that will apply. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magnuson–Moss_Warranty_Act
  8. That doesn't look half bad. Looks like a decent integration of a main display and secondary infotainment. I could live with that.

    Fusion styled crossover?

    I meant that to be somewhat facetious. Mostly because the Focus Active apparently failed in design with focus groups. So here's to hoping this thing does better... I'm hoping Ford comes out with a decent replacement for the Focus/Fiesta in the form of the Ecosport replacement. I think Ford still needs something in the bargain basement market with a compact/subcompact size. I hope it isn't only the above vehicle as I think that's a bit too large. But I'm not likely to buy any of the above. So it won't affect me personally. I'll just leave it at that...

    Fusion styled crossover?

    So basically the Focus Active 2.0 project...
  11. Maybe it just didn't want to go to Delaware? 😛

    2020 Aviator Start Stop :-(

    The manufacturers have this already factored in. They are building the parts more durable to handle the increased usage. Mainly the starter. But new transmissions are being designed with start/stop in mind to keep the hydraulics ready to go. I'm sure a lot more than just those. A few years ago, most makers switched to electric power steering. That gave 5%. There have been a few other things done as well. So it all starts to add up.

    news coming....

    I believe that would be called pulse width modulation...
  14. Wow. That MT journalist is about to be fired. 🙂
  15. In my opinion, the Nissan looks the cheapest to me. The Toyota vents look better. But then the Honda big ass central shifter really sticks out. Combine that with the all electronic gauge cluster, I think the Escape over all is still my favorite.
