    2021 Nautilus

    It’s really confusing as to what is happening. According to the new union contract Oakville is supposed to stop building edge and Nautilus and switch to BEVs in 2023/2024. At one point the new edge/nautilus were going to CD6 (RWD) but then switched to C2 (Escape/Corsair). So either the C2 versions will be built elsewhere or they’re being replaced with BEVs.

    Nautilus and Edge may be dropped

    I very much doubt that we’ll see anything larger than the 2.7L on C2. And maybe I4s only. High performance will probably come from BEVs and PHEVs going forward in this market.

    Yes, the new interior is pictured above. There are 3 choices for post 2024: C2 based replacement built in NA C2 based replacement imported from China (I'm not buying this one) Move to a BEV platform

    It’s legit. The guy who posted it on Facebook works (or worked) for Ford and used his real name. I don’t think he understood it was a no-no. It was promptly removed.
  7. If your battery is more than 3 yrs old you might consider replacing it. A battery that’s going bad can seem fine but can cause strange electrical issues. I had some mirror issues when mine went bad.

    Don’t believe anything that’s reported in a contract negotiation year. We’ll know after the contract is signed.
  9. Are you seeing other delays on the audio side? Mine did that plus a lot of other delays when using steering wheel controls or the touch screen and eventually I had to get a new APIM and that fixed everything.

    Is there a Time OUT on the Power Liftgate?

    It's really easy to test at home. Just pretend you're at the grocery store and follow the same steps including leaving the fob in the purse inside the vehicle.

    Order bank doesn’t open until 10/23 so your dealer is being truthful. Order guide will be out around the same time.

    Tire pressure sensors

    Even the cheap ones work pretty well. Bought my daughter this one for $20 and she's used it a few times.
