To be clear, the youtuber linked is a Ford employee so any review you're waiting for is not unbiased.

If that's true, it's disappointing that he posts review videos of other brands.

Edit: Joel's right, Mechonomist is a Ford employee. OK, so we need to be on the lookout for the true, first ride by a non-Ford employee. :)

I like shots of people sitting inside the car. Gives you a good idea of interior space.

In this crazy new age where you can be one of about 6 different sex types depending on your current mood --- it is good to see an individual that actually looks like a hairy male. :)

I like that some people are getting to drive something. It increases the chances that I might have an opportunity before the deadline on FE....

Wait... notice how light the dash top is in the original post? And look at the color of the A pillars. That is very different from the Ford order pages.
I just can't stand a non-black dash top. I don't like light colored A pillars either. They reflect in the windshield when sunlit. The lighter the shade the more contrast that is lost on a sunny day.

I don’t think these renderings were truly accurate. For example, look at the bezel around the two displays — it is much sleeker and narrower in the renderings than it is in actual vehicle photos.

If so, I must wonder what our final build will look like. It's a pretty big deal for me. (My profession has tweaked my visual perception)

This photo from ReturnOfTheMac...makes me wonder if the Space Gray dash top looks black in person or medium gray as in this photo.

I guess it's very gray unfortunately. If they don't change it for production, then that is a design mistake on Ford's part. I guess I would buy some not-too-tacky black dash mat to lay up there.
Imagine how bad it would be in the worst case scenario: The sun is beaming strait down on your dash as you approach a tunnel entrance and the reflection of your dashboard is all you can see superimposed ahead of you.
