  1. We also have an Aviator GT PHEV... we got it over an EV so we can go anywhere we want without pre-planning for range anxiety, make 10 minute pit stops, not have to worry about extremely cold temperatures, etc. PHEVs and Hybrids are extemely good stepping stones to full EV adoption. IMHO they will help with the transition, not slow it down. If they didn't have PHEVs, we would have purchased another ICE because we're just not ready for a full EV... and that's just being realistic!!!
  2. That's not correct with the 2023 Escape Hybrid AWD for some reason. Our ST-Line Elite AWD Hybrid window sticker says 42 city, 36 highway and 39 combined... exactly the same as the FWD models. We still have our 2010 Fusion Hybrid FWD (now with 160K trouble free miles) and the new Escape Hybrid AWD is way more refined and gets consistently better real world mileage in all types of driving than the Fusion ever did.
  3. The 2020 and up Escapes also have the 3 light auto settings, including our 2023 ST Hybrid... it does work great. The 3 settings are at the bottom of the touch screen on 2023 models with Synch 4, but it works the same as the manual button in our daughters 2020 Titanium 2.0L
  4. We had 5 recalls on our 2020 Aviator GT, with some of them being repeats of the camera issue. All of them were just software updates.
  5. It would be fun to take one to a car audio shop and ask them to troubleshoot why the subwoofer isn't working... imagine their surprise, lol!!
  6. What's really puzzling is why go to the expense of installing the fully wired amp with no componets on the circuit board and the subwofer assembly without the magnet. Why not just cap off the wiring harness... that's crazy, lol.

  8. ^^^^Evidently, for 2024 the B pillar illuminated keypad will be late availability as a $350 dealer installed option on the higher end trims that will have the required wiring. It will no longer be factory installed. Guess that's a better option than completely eliminating features like the hands free liftgate.
  9. Ford has 2024 Escape Build and Price activated... looks like Atlas Blue is no longer available and the illuminated door entry keypad is now a $350 stand alone option!
  10. You can tell how it shipped just by looking at it. It had to have been convoy, on top and in front above the cab and facing backwards... the rear end is covered with bug splatter, lol.
  11. ^^^Dealer called today to say it was delivered. Tracker now says it both shipped and was delivered (final preparations) yesterday... so it must have shipped by convoy directly from plant to get here that fast!!!
  12. Goofy order tracker... tear tag appeared Monday night then tracker updated Tuesday morning to built 7/24. Got the official built email this morning and tracker said built at the top of the page and that shipping could take sevaral days to a week. Now the tracker is back to order confirmed at the top with in production and built dates still there, but only the order confirmed dot is filled in green now... go figure!!! Is this tracker behavior very common?
  13. It's alive!!! The BCE modules are activated. The PCM is blank but I think thats normal.
  14. It's my build/blend day, wonder how many times I'll end up checking for module activation... nothing yet, LOL!!!
  15. ^^^My Escape's build day and blend date are both tomorrow, the 21st. When should my status change to built? Also, the window sticker says convoy and dealer is 400 miles from the plant... so should it ship directly by truck or could it still ship by rail? Just looking for some input on what others have experienced!
