  1. Autotrader's opinion is the Outback has graduated from a wagon to a SUV: https://www.autotrader.com/car-news/what-point-do-we-admit-subaru-outback-now-suv-281474979889004 So will the Fusion Active will be consdered a wagon or SUV?

    dummy acceleration question

    From Lincoln Aviator fact sheet: Conserve is an efficiency mode; the pedal response is less aggressive, while vehicle performance is tuned to optimize fuel efficiency. There's a substantial deference in throttle/transmission response and ride/handling between Normal, Conserve and Excite on mine. It's performance is amazing on 87 octane... I haven't tried anything higher!

    An Interesting Comparison

    My Aviator GT was built on Dec 5th last year and I've had zero issues so far, knock on wood! The 2021 models should be even better but they won't be getting Sync 4 yet... that may not happen until a mid cycle refresh.
  4. My memory is fading, but I'm thinking the AMC Eagle beat the AWD versions of these vehicles by a few years. Plus the Eagle was a true raised crossover from an existing platform. I believe the Autotrader article above is correct on this one...

    An Interesting Comparison

    https://www.iihs.org/ratings/vehicle/lincoln/aviator-4-door-suv/2020 Ford didn't wait for the 2021 model to make proper modifications... they fixed both the 2020 model Aviator and Explorer way back in May and had them retested! And that original subpar rating would 'possibly' cause a left foot injury in one test... so I'm not losing any sleep over mine being built well before May!

    Trade in Raptor for Aviator Black Label GT?

    Just curious... are you into serious offroading with your Raptor or are you more into how it looks and the resale value? In addition to being part of Ford Performance, I think another reason Raptors hold their value so well is its uniqueness. But that may change with competition from the Ram TRX.

    22-inch wheels? good or bad?

    For reference, here's the recommended pressures by wheel size: https://tirepsi.com/lincoln-aviator-tire-pressure
  10. $2750 in my region and Hybrids and Titanium 2.0s are hard to find....
  11. 2021 Edge is getting SYNC 4 and 12-inch center stack screen... from Ford Media Center: "Reverse sensing system is now standard on all series.

    Windshield issues

    The pinholes/specs seem to be fairly common in other brands also: https://teslamotorsclub.com/tmc/threads/windshield-specks.128671/ https://priuschat.com/threads/tiny-windshield-specks-in-bright-sunlight.98979/ Maybe there are micro perforations in the plastic sheet that's laminated between the two layers of glass. All windshields have it to meet safety standards, plus the accustic winshields in higher end models use a different type of plastic sheets that reduce noise while allowing thinner glass to save weight.

  14. The only Escape retail incentives in my region are 0%/60 plus $1000 trade assist or $2750 cash back plus $1000 trade assist... the 0%/72 offer is over.

    PHEV production

    This isn't Ford's first PHEV so they know how to make them safe, but like you said... all manufactures have recalls. They'll get whatever problem the Kuga is having worked out and delaying production of the Escape until it's corrected is the right call. I have an Aviator GT and love it, but I'll always be a little concerned about it sitting in the garage. Not because its a Ford product... because all lithium batteries have the potential to become unstable for various reasons. I don't have that concern with our 2010 Fusion Hybrid because it has the old style NiMH batteries.
