    2020 Aviator

    ...Although I suspect there will be no change to the status as it seems to be stuck ‘in production’ for nearly a month now. 5LM5J7XC5LGL12251

    Which date is actually the build date? The window sticker shows two dates (plus the bottom date which seems to change) and the tracking website has a different date. I’m assuming the lower date is when the vin was generated, the upper coded date is the actual build start date and the one which comes from the tracking site (the one you copy and paste into the web browser and interpret the code) is the date the vehicle rolls off the end of the assembly line.

    Yes, very lonely still as it doesn’t appear to have made the trip to the dealership; it was nowhere to be found! I get it - the E in ETA!

    Poor thing, just sitting there on the lot for the last month, probably cold and hungry! By the way, thank you for providing this service....

    Would LOVE an update, should one be available!

    Phone As A Key

    It took me a while to find it as well... if you are in the Apps app there will be a custom (mine is a lightening bolt for some reason) icon in the top right. Click that and a menu will pop up with apps waiting to be updated. Sure, the app may support the feature but does the car itself need to be updated? I believe that even the window sticker references PaaK as 'late availability'.

    Ordered: 2020 Aviator

    Cool. Yeah the roll up thing. I didn’t realize my dealer ordered the cover, but I did request fully loaded so it’s coming with all the floor liners, rear mat, cover, etc. I’m jealous of your stitched dash - such a nice touch.

    Otherwise, so far so good? Question: does the cargo cover provide any security when the third row is folded? I’ll know the answer myself one of these days but I do appreciate the total coverage of the cover in my MKX.

    It must be super frustrating to be unable to get an ETA. FWIW mine was built on the 10th of September and has an ETA (in Ontario Canada) of October 13. My salesperson mentioned they had one with a build date just a few days before mine delivered today. Seems to be all over the map!

    2020 Aviator Start Stop :-(

    Not always. There are times when there is a delay to where the brake pedal is released and it takes an extra second for it to restart. In certain situations I prefer to have the engine running the whole time. Quick press of the on/off is all I need.

    Ordered: 2020 Aviator

    Test drove a fully loaded Aviator fresh off the truck this morning. Fully loaded for Canada I mean. For some reason, Black Label isn’t offered here and really, for $90K I kind of expect an alcantara headliner and stitched dash top. Crappy plastic dash top is glaring actually and out of place IMHO. there was a sticker indicating 77 miles had been put on it at the factory. Seems excessive but there didn’t seem to be any quality issues; little dirt on the inside here and there, including on the light headliner! Ride quality with the air suspension didn’t blow me away as being terribly different than my MKX. Heads up display for me was a big wow-factor as were the soft close doors... how luxurious. All switches I touched felt high quality, which isn’t something I can say about the MKX. All in in all I feel it’s a logical upgrade from the MKX. Can’t wait to take delivery whenever my order shows up.

    I’d feel the same way if it wasn’t for my corporate vehicle having it (2017 F150 3.5T) and me being able to play with and learn to live with it. Yes, sport mode disables it. But once you get used to it and are able to ‘manipulate’ it, there’s actually a sense that you’re saving fuel and not causing undue wear to the systems. By manipulate I mean mean that you can modulate the brake so it doesn’t shut off. Quite important when you need to enter an intersection quickly and get up to high speed!

    Excellent. I’m happy for you! You’re coming out of a Continental, right? Is the new accelerator pedal different in actuation, relative to the other style? Seems like water and salt will accumulate on the carpet since the mat can’t get close enough. It looks like you can’t lock the doors from the touch-sensitive pad on the handle anymore. So if you take your gym bag out of the back door, where do you lock the car? Does ANY exhaust enter out the exhaust tips? If not it’s going to look pretty stupid in the cooler weather. 12 weeks now from my order. Expecting another 4. I’m proud of how patient I’m getting in my old age! (I’m 40)
