There will be changes to the seats. He said that a couple of months ago. I agree with everyone. The seats are too narrow and when you inflate the sides it encroaches on the actual seat and back area instead of wrapping around your body frame.
He said the inspectors and drivers at the plant made those comments to engineering when the first MKXs rolled off the line. They also noted a small item and told engineering that there is a sharp point where the sheet metal is exposed at the rear corner where the window meets the door of the driver and passenger doors. Notable when using your hand to catch the corner of the door. Never heard of this until I checked mine, and sure enough where the trim pieces meet has to be rounded more.
Under the hood options seems logical to me to have the 3T as an option. I think he may be wrong. He suggests that 3 engine options never happens. He was told so far 2EB and 2.7EB (HP not confirmed) 3.7 discontinued.
One thing for sure we will see it in the flesh Jan 2018 Detroit show. That's about 3 hours from my place so I will take a look unless one hits the plant sooner.
