I'm still on MyFordTouch (Sync2 maybe?) in our 2013 Escapes, where navigating the voice controls is just more trouble than it's worth. So we pretty much abandoned even trying. 4a has to be 20x better than that, I hope.

But I do like having controls on the steering wheel too. I have most of those on the 2013 as well, just spread around a little more. One thing I'll really miss is the wider gap in the spokes at the bottom of the wheel. Most of my driving (except in thick traffic) is with one hand gripping the bottom of that wheel with my arm resting in my lap.

Greatings from Germany!

In German brochures there is still no information on rims. The correct choice of rims is crucial for energy consumption. There have been attempts in which it was found that different rims produces different ranges. The more open a rim is, the less range it has.

I am curious when the German Ford dealers will come to us with such information. Here it is currently extremely quiet about MME. Too calm if I can steal the remark. Thank you for these really great information. Keep on bringing me ... us such beautiful pictures!

Well it is the same in Canada also, besides the fact that we don't have online reservatrions/order system, so all the info coming through these days is appreciated and makes me wanting this car more and more.
