They've mentioned it before, but they're constantly spitting out content, even if it's "FORD PRODUCTS NOW COME WITH WHEELS!"  I appreciate the constant content, but some of the articles are like ....did we really need that article?

I'm guessing the reasoning behind the split lifgate is more for opening length purposes - since they're so long, the shorter liftgate lets it be opened in a shorter space.


Not to mention weight.

IIRC, I think we've seen some Ford patents for a system to pull the cargo area out toward the opening which could offset the split liftgate.  I wonder if we'll see that too, since the tailgate portion puts you farther away from the expansive cargo area when the seats are down.

Leaving just the top open to run the power cord instead of the entire hatch?

 

Not sure how that accomplishes anything different than the liftglass from before.

I wonder if both sections will be power operated.  I imagine they will be on the Navi but wonder if the Expedition will be too in all forms.  I wonder if the fobs on both will have separate buttons for the top section and the lower section.

I can only comment on my mom's BMW - yes, both sections are powered.  There is one fob button that opens the top section only.  The lower section gets opened via button push on the top of the lower section (when the upper part is open).  Closing can be done via one touch of the button on the upper portion.

BMW has a kick activated sensor too, but it is eliminated with the tow package (which my mom's has) so I can't comment on how that operates.

If the top section has a lower leftover then the glass does currently, it'll be easier to access the power panel, esp in relation to whatever you would be powering

What I like about single tailgates is sitting on the cargo floor edge, with the hatch open and shielding you if it's raining.  The split-tail gate makes it a longer reach if things roll forward. Not to mention the complexity of it... I can't imagine this is any cheaper than the traditional method.

Yup, that's been my point as well - the Navigator/Expy's rear cargo area is already long/massive (especially in the Max/L versions), this setup will only put you farther away from items at the front of the cargo area.  Like I mentioned above, I do remember some patents for some sort of moving cargo floor to bring items outward - maybe we'll see some sort of trick setup to counteract this issue.

By how Long ford is taking to reveal these monsters, I guess we'll never know.

 

Hopefully they do a quick turnaround between the debut and on-sale dates instead of the usual long drawn out waiting period.  I've never understood why they debut something and wait a year to put it on sale, killing the initial excitement of the new model's debut.

You do have a point there, they could be recouping costs by probably making that "power roll out tray" an added option...  I can see that...people like to be wowed by the little things... add to it an optional "puppy staircase"...

Lincoln has one of the best front end designs in the business right now. Their unique light bar emulating the wings of an airplane, the grille shape, the headlights, it's all perfect. This is a massive improvement over the current navigator, which is attractive, but a little lumpy and soft looking in some areas.
