    Ford to Launch More Sub-Brands?

    Concur... the Mach needs a shaker option!
  3. 2022's are still SYNC 3... Aviator probably won't get SYNC 4 until the mid cycle refresh.
  4. X-plan was $753 over invoice on our 2020 GT, but the only admin fee was a $100 doc fee. Invoice was $5,614 below retail.... which was a lot more than the markup on Explorers.

    Water Spots After Washing

    https://crspotless.com/ I used to get bad water spotting all over our cars due to the towns hard water. To minimize it I had to wash them in the evening shade, keep them wet until finished, then dry them quickly with several towels. Since purchasing this system I wash them way more often because I no longer have to dry them... just wash and rinse, with no water spots! Its pricey, but its been worth every penny for what it saves in time and aggravation. Also, the special coating for the HUD isn't on the outside of the windshield.
  6. Optional seating for when you're forced to take the in-laws with you on vacation, lol!!!
  7. Like it or not... all manufactures will be making this decision much sooner than we think: https://www.roadandtrack.com/news/a35851952/audi-will-stop-developing-internal-combustion-engines/

    2022 Lincoln Aviator Order Guide

    Not really an early model year, it's about the same start as the 2020 model year. 2020 turned out to be a long (extended) year for Aviator due to the launch problems and then covid... so it made 2021 a short year.

    2022 Lincoln Aviator Production Information

    DO IT!!!!!... we absolutely love ours and have had zero issues with it since taking delivery a year ago, and our retail order was the first GT my dealer recieved! Since then they have been ordering/selling as many GTs as they can get and the GM always tries to keep several in stock. However, I do agree that Lincoln could do a much better job of taking care of those who have had issues.
  11. The Mach-E is just the beginning and Tesla's days of 80% plus market share are probably over now. The EV pie will get exponentially bigger as all manufacturers begin transitioning away from ICEs. So that big market share pie will get sliced up into many more pieces until at some point the biggest (dominant) piece may be something like 16%... which will most likely still belong to Tesla.
  12. https://www.investors.com/news/ford-stock-mustang-mach-e-takes-ev-share-tesla/ "Nearly 70% of Mach-E orders are from competitive brands, while just over one-fifth were sold in California," Ford's release said. California is both the largest U.S. market for EVs and Tesla's home ground. In a note March 2, Morgan Stanley analysts said the Ford Mustang Mach-E stole EV share from Tesla last month. "While U.S. EV sales rose 34% in February, Tesla's share fell to 69% from 81% the prior year, they wrote. "The Ford Mustang Mach-E accounted for nearly 100% of the share loss," they added.

    2022 Lincoln Aviator Production Information

    They are probably trying to get back on the original production schedule. The original Job #1 date for the 2020 MY was 05/2019. But due to the botched launch and Covid the 2020 MY was extended, making 2021 a short year. If that's the case, the 2022 Order Guide should be out later this month after the Order Banks open.

    EVs and Their Drawbacks

    They can handle extreme cold... but not ice: https://www.thegazette.com/subject/news/iowa-wind-turbines-equipped-to-handle-extreme-cold-ice-is-another-matter-20210219 Ice causes several problems. A typical wind turbine blade is longer than the wing of a 747 and is shaped for maximum efficiency. Ice build up changes the shape and reduces efficiency. It also adds a lot of excess weight, plus if the build-up isn't uniform it can cause balance problems.
  15. Haven't noticed any glitches on our 2020 GT cameras...
