    Diverting Chips to Other Vehicles

    Have you checked with your dealer to see what's the holdup? Have they pulled up the Vehicle Visibility Report for you or are they still not getting back to you? Could be a shipping delay but it's starting to sound like it's on hold for some reason, or the tracking system isn't updating. Order tracker still only shows my Escape as shipped, though I've had it over a month, so it's not the best source of data (or ETAs). Then again, the trucking company never marked the load as delivered and got a signature... If the dealer won't help, you could use Ford's online chat channel to see i6f they can check the VVR for you: https://www.ford.com/help/contact/#chat
  2. Agreed. This is the workaround I use - slide my hand in the front door handle to unlock, then immediately proceed to open the rear door. An annoying extra step? Perhaps, but it's much better than digging around in my pocket. I'll also do the same before opening the lift gate to let passengers inside. Been doing that >5.5 years and don't mind it, first on a Focus and now an Escape. It's second nature by now.
  3. Looks like your link defaults to a partner code of EAA01. This link should take you to the login screen where you can enter your own partner code: https://www.axz.ford.com/partnerweb/browserDetect.do
  4. A director of "new footprint construction" very clearly delineates this role overseeing construction in new locations (expanding the footprint) as opposed to construction at existing sites, which would likely include new buildings like REVC. Basically, think of this role as overseeing construction at Blue Oval City and Blue Oval SK Battery Park.

    2023 Escape Orders & Discussion

    It's just a facelift, not a new model. The front and rear fascias were redesigned, and the interior saw some upgrades. Mostly just the decorative plastic pieces with minimal changes to the sheetmetal (that's the stuff that costs more to change). The dimensions are essentially unchanged. The same length, width, height. If a 2020-2022 Escape meets your dimension criteria, a 2023+ will as well. Just take a look at a couple of comparison photos below. It's largely the same vehicle on the outside. 2020-2022 Escape: Source: https://www.cars.com/articles/2020-ford-escape-6-things-we-like-and-2-things-we-dont-418659/ 2023 Escape: Source: https://www.caranddriver.com/news/a40300383/2023-ford-escape-spied/

    2024 Mustang Info

    What's funny? You two seem to be talking about two entirely different vehicles. You're talking about Bronco Sport, while @rmc523 seems to be talking about big Bronco.

    Which features are you referring to? You can compare the order guides to see where the features were moved to. https://blueovalforums.com/forums/index.php?/files/category/4-escape/&sortby=file_updated&sortdirection=desc
  9. https://media.ford.com/content/fordmedia/fna/us/en/news/2022/09/23/blueoval-city-groundbreaking.html Whoever wrote this press release doesn't seem to understand that they're past groundbreaking - that happened back around the time of the announcement. What they've started now is vertical construction - building the stuff above the ground. They're making progress there.

    2022 Super Duty Orders & Discussion

    Could be a misunderstanding and the dealer didn't tell him the way you're interpreting it. So let's just have him double check. @UT_Grandpa, let's just double check what you meant here. Do you know that the paperwork that shows the X-Plan price (invoice, preview order report from WBDO when you ordered it, etc.) already includes the $275 program admin fee? Just double check on the paperwork in the finance office that there's no separate $275 fee; the listed price already includes that. Otherwise, the dealer is double-charging you there. So, you should be paying that listed X-Plan price, doc fee no more than $100 (the dealer doesn't have to charge it unless state law requires it, but of course most do anyway), anything you've authorized the dealer to add to the vehicle, and TTL. Nowhere on the paperwork should there be a separate $275 line item.

    2023 Escape

    How much of that $3 billion USD does it take to put together a simple press release, post some text and pictures online, oh and maybe have a couple units to send around to the auto shows that they're choosing to participate in? Especially since we're just talking marginal cost over what they actually did do for Corsair. Nobody here is asking why Ford isn't spending millions to advertise 2023 Escape on TV, online, and in print. That's what adds up to your $3 billion. Not failing to put some text and pictures on the web and show off the vehicle at the shows you're already at.

    2023 Escape

    The strangest part is that they officially unveiled 2023 Corsair in time for NAIAS, yet no word about 2023 Escape and apparently they couldn't even be bothered to bring one to the show.

    2023 Escape Orders & Discussion

    They broke PHEV out into its own model. Start Over at the top left and then choose "2023 Escape Plug-In Hybrid". Or click this link: https://www.thayerbg.com/carresearch/TrimsBuildDealer/year_2023/make_Ford/model_Escape Plug-In Hybrid/confid_thayerauto/ The source is https://www.thayerbg.com, or Thayer Ford, a dealer in the Toledo, Ohio, area. As noted the pricing lines up with what's been seen elsewhere.

    2023 Maverick Tremor

    If they all came from Tribar's Wixom, MI, plant that was shut down for over a month for dumping hexavalent chromium down the municipal sewer, that would explain it. Still not a good look on Ford that they can't even source badges. Makes one wonder about quality, supplier relationships, etc... https://www.detroitnews.com/story/news/environment/2022/09/01/tribar-plant-allowed-restart-water-discharges-wixom-after-release/7960780001/
  15. Wow, I guess the teasing herein was spot on. Way to go, Ford...
