  1. No but I wouldn't expect any changes other than colors or option packaging. There might be some additional decontenting these last couple of years.

    Most likely the amp. Crutch field may have a wiring diagram.

    2.7 engine bay mystery box

    I've tried to explain this many times over the years. A warranty is just an insurance policy. It has nothing directly to do with the quality or effectiveness of the product. The only difference is a warranty on a product with poor quality is more expensive than a warranty on a good product (for the provider). In my college days I sold furniture and we had a silicon based fabric treatment similar to scotchguard but far better - lasted for years. The chemicals themselves weren't very expensive but we sold it for maybe $300 for a sofa because it came with a 5 year warranty against stains.

    They don’t normally fail unless you have a bad misfire and keep driving it.
  6. 5x108 I believe. Should be the same as 2013+ fusion and MKZ.

    Double Beep!

    I understand why people don’t like the double honk. I never liked it myself. But I don’t see the point complaining about something that is so easily avoided.

    Double Beep!

    Because it's SO easy to avoid. Turn off the engine or don't shut the door all the way. Could it be implemented differently so it's not so loud? Sure. But it's silly to complain about something with multiple simple workarounds.

    2021 Nautilus

    On the lack of HUD, it may just be a platform limitation. CD4 is pretty old, dating back to the 2007 Mondeo (called EUCD back then). It's also clear they are in cost cutting mode on Edge and Nautilus with limited engine choices and decontenting since they're going away in current form in 2-3 years. It will be interesting to see if they import the new Nautilus (presumably C2 based) from China as someone has claimed.

    Double Beep!

    Its designed to make sure you don’t accidentally drive off without the key leaving the driver stranded somewhere and to prevent the vehicle from running inside a garage creating CO. And it’s so easy to avoid by just hitting the button or not shutting the door.

    Double Beep!

    I don’t know why this is so difficult. Just don’t close the door all the way and it won’t honk. Or turn it off. Or leave the key inside.

    Corsair screen is smaller but I thought it was fine.

    2021 Nautilus

    Both the order guide and Ford websites are very confusing about the black label themselves and interior color choices.

    I've only seen a HUD in a 2020 Corsair we sat in a couple of months ago. It was nice and I'd love to have it on a new vehicle but not a deal breaker.
