The 2022 owners manual is out. I have too much time on my hands waiting for a build date, so I took the PDFs of the 2021 and 2022 manuals, extracted the text, and diff'd them.

You can check out the differences here (for now): https://mmediff.tiiny.site/ (I've also attached the zip'd HTML in case that free site goes away.)

So far I haven't seen anything super interesting, but what else will I do with my 3-6 months left?

For nerds, here's how this was generated:
Bash:
pip install pdfminer
npm install -g diff2html-cli 
pdf2txt.py -o 2021.txt 2021.pdf
pdf2txt.py -o 2022.txt 2022.pdf
sed -i 's|202. Mustang Mach-E (CGW) Canada/United States of America, enUSA, Edition date:.*First-Printing|202_  Mustang Mach-E (CGW) Canada/United States of America, enUSA, Edition date: _, First-Printing|g' 2021.txt 2022.txt

2 alarm/security things that seem to have been removed from 22s:
WHAT IS THE PERIMETER ALARM
The perimeter alarm is designed to detect
unauthorized access to your vehicle.
WHAT IS THE BATTERY BACKUP
ALARM
The battery backup alarm is an additional
alarm system that has its own battery and
horn. It is designed to detect if the vehicle
battery or the battery backup alarm is
disconnected.

Probably related to this, they also removed the text regarding using the door touchpads to open unlocked doors during the first roughly 72 hours of a 12V battery failure. This was a feature described in late 2019 that never made it to production, just like the battery back up for the alarm.

2022 adds text that implies the frunk has power open and close. I doubt this is true? Maybe copy/paste from the F-150 mega power frunk:

Note: The front luggage compartment hood​
only operates with the transmission in park​
(P). If there is a problem with open or close
request, a tone sounds and a warning​
message appears in the instrument cluster.​
Note: Do not hang any weight from the​
front luggage compartment hood. This​
could damage the hood and its​
components. Remove any excessive weight​
from the hood prior to use. If the hood starts​
to close after it has fully opened, this​
indicates there may be excessive weight on​
the hood or a possible strut failure. A​
repetitive tone sounds and the hood closes
under control. If the hood continues to close​
after opening, have the system checked by​
an authorized dealer.​

Ah, yes. The illusive super-capacitors.

What 2021 manual are you comparing to? Job 1 with supplement. Job 2?

Wait so this didn’t end up being a thing? So we are totally hosed if there is a 12V battery failure? Can I be trapped in the car?
The interior levers have a manual linkage, so you won‘t be trapped inside. It’s getting in from the outside that adds a bit of a challenge.

If true power close on front frunk would be great

No, in fact even in the 2022 manual the instrument cluster section doesn't show or talk about the power meter at all.
