  1. So would people rather wait 2 years for failures to pile up, then get pissed when Ford has to recall millions of them? "Oh, Ford knew this problem existed 2 years ago and did nothing about it." It's a new model. There will be issues. Ford is on it immediately. Get over it. If you're not comfortable with that, then wait 2 years after production before buying a new model.
  2. Could be worse. Could affect 3.4 million. https://www.cbsnews.com/news/gm-brake-recall-gm-recalls-3-4-million-pickups-suvs-over-braking-problem/

    2019 Transit Connect fuse block

    No, that looks like a computer module. On mine with the felt panel off on the passenger side, I could plainly see it right there. https://www.carcarekiosk.com/video/2015_Ford_Transit_Connect_XL_2.5L_4_Cyl._Mini_Cargo_Van/fuse_interior/replace

    If it's like my Escape, you have to pop off that felt like panel first.
  6. Both need better batteries. You can't get to BEV's without first going through Hybrids/PHEV first. Until they can come up with a way to charge a battery within 10 minutes, BEV's will never work for my uses. A hybrid I could utilize first.

    2020 Escape...will it be flat-towable?

    I don't think that has been announced.

    Nissan Titan diesel is dead.

    Depends on what you call "decent". Reports I've read state that the engine got about 1mpg better than the Ford 6.7 diesel. And a lot less torque. So not much of a savings of going full on Super Duty.

    2021 F-150 Spotted

    From a MPG point, I thought NA engines were better in a hybrid setup than EB. So that's why I thought they may do a 3.3 NA plus a 3.0EB.

    I'm curious what they are doing to use for hybrid model gas engines. I'm guessing a 3.3 NA engine. But I would be possibly interested in that model. It depends if they are going for a gas saving model, or a power model like the Aviator.

    F150 w/generator,,,,

    Only reason I can think they would be needing to air condition something on a mule truck is maybe they are testing some battery EV powered F150??
  12. No, you are correct. They also dropped the 5 speed manual as well about that time. Shame...
  13. That appears to be correct. I remember the 1.0EB manual is a 6 speed instead of the 5 speed. The auto trans is also a regular slushbox. https://www.caranddriver.com/reviews/a15100602/2016-ford-focus-sedan-10-liter-turbo-automatic-test-review/
