  1. It will be interesting when he gets his hands on the new bronco. If Ford put as much thought into it as he they did into the Mach E, it will be a rock solid performer. kudos to the Mach E engineering team, the engineering is in impressive.
  2. No more ridiculous then the map update Ford keeps trying to sell me for the Escape. I just use google maps. Makes we wonder how many people actually buy the map update for the 250 bucks.
  3. I recently started a new position as head of a Tech Services Dept. for pharmaceutical consulting firm. I was drawn to the position with the knowledge that I could work from where ever I had access to a strong ISP. This includes my home in Boston, my summer house in Maine or a short term rental in the location of my choice. Flexibility in my work location was a key motivator in my decision to accept the position.
  4. They built 21 C pickups in Feb.
  5. They built twice as many bronco sports as Escapes, that tells you something. I have actually seen more Bronco Sports on the road then New Escapes in my Boston neighborhood
  6. The gas in the tank should allow operation for several days before filling, if what I read about real world application in Texas is accurate.

  11. After watching this review I felt that this would an ideal vehicle to rent on Kauai. Some of the roads to the more remote beaches and trail heads are little rough for a typical soft roader. Last couple of times we rented pick ups, The rubberized area in the back ideal for cleaning out the beach sand. I would replace our current escape with this but the towing capacity isn’t there.

  12. Just read that Amazon bought a fleet of Natural Gas powered Tractors with Cummings engines modified by Westport. The
  13. Where did this desire for all this tech come from, if the buying public wasn’t demanding it, it wouldn’t be there. The internet tells the people manufacturer x has this great new tech, guess what, every manufacturer needs it. I don’t use half the stuff packed into the electronics of my vehicles, but if it wasn’t there the manufacturer would get skewered by the press. The wealth of information and misinformation available to anybody makes it almost impossible to make rationale decisions.
