Ford makes a big deal out of personalization, e.g. 3 memories and all of that for seats, climate -- tons of stuff. And then you reach down to unlock the steering wheel tilt/telescope and adjust it manually. A bit of magic lost.

Having said that, agreed. It is a first world problem. 😊
Well, and it is a FORD. Not a Lincoln. I don’t think Matthew McConaughey will be driving one soon.

Bet there'll be way more paint colors available. Too bad I'm impatient enough to put up with today's limited palette.
The airline I flew for violated the prime directive of buying airliners, "Never buy or fly the A model of anything." I spent half my career flying an A model. Why change now? ;)

What don’t like about full autonomous is that the vehicle will not speed. Or at least it shouldn’t.

personally wherever I drive, most drivers exceed the speed limit by at least 10%. Will autonomous do this? Or will it maintain the speed limit while everyone else is passing you?

mid you can’t maintain the speed of the balance of traffic I think I would never use self driving.
From the Mach-e Owner's manual, page 220,

"Adjusting the Set Speed Tolerance
1. Access the vehicle drawer on the
touchscreen.
2. Press SETTINGS.
3. Press Driver Assistance.
4. Press Cruise Control.
5. Press Adaptive Cruise Control.
6. Press Speed Sign Recognition.
7. Press Tolerance.
8. Use + and - to set the tolerance.
Note: You cannot set the tolerance more
than 19 mph (30 km/h) above or below the
recognized speed."

Sound more complicated than it is.

Well, MME is a first-world vehicle. I agree this is a lost opportunity. My Fusion Energi has this feature. My wife and I appreciate it everytime we use the memory buttons. The steering wheel is also part of the "easy entry/exit" thing. Very nice. I would put it ahead of the pony logo in the frunk on my want list, to be honest.

I hate to say it but overall the thing I will miss the most from my lincoln mkx to the mache is the aircon seats.

Yes, I can do without it, but I really like the aircon seats. Just so hard to do certain things in an Ev, one for range and two for price. Once the first one is done through the mache can and will get better over time. Later models could have aircon seats or even a heat pump. 2021 mache will not be the same as 2023 mache.

my 2013 has nearly every option - missing only adaptive cruise - and it's a manual wheel adjustment - must have been added after for your 2017 to have it. From reading the appropriate group on Facebook it looks like the sweet spot for the Fusion Energi was the 2018 model year so that tracks...

The one thing I'll say just having gotten the gf's C-Max (that lacks memory of any kind) back from service the other day is that adjusting the power seat back to "just right" is WAY harder than adjusting the manual wheel. Yes, a power adjustment wheel would be nicer for sure, but it's not going to kill me.

I hope with OTA that the 2021 Mach-E won't be the same in 2023, either, for that matter. 😉

I’m fine with the MME without seat cooling. Why? Because I’ve never had it on any vehicle. Cant miss what you haven’t had.

don't ever try it lol.
Back when I bought a Fusion, I was tempted to get the MKZ version simply because of the air blowing through perforated seat holes.

It was $7,000 more. But so tempted. But definitely not worth it. Still, tempted.

Then I sat in an MKZ on the dealer lot and found that those little air holes are no match for Phoenix summers.

So I bought the Fusion.

That would be true for most. Range isn’t a huge issue for me though, I live on an island. But if still lived in California’s Central Valley and was driving through it, yes it’d be great.

I think I'd just drive an ICE car rather than doing either. If I'm gonna be in fear of running out fuel to where I can't use the A/C on my fancy new $60,000 car, then it's staying home on road trips while I drive my Escape.

We own a Audi eTron and you all have nothing to worry about when it comes to range ... nothing! My wife drive the eTron and she has a led foot .. she speed everywhere she goes and this is a car with only 204 EPA .. with her driving style she only gets 152 miles @ 80% charge on the GOM ..

So you all have absolutely nothing to worry about.. she never runs out only using about 60-70 miles a day and she charge up once every two days ..

We went on a 754 miles road trip from NY to SC best we got on the freeway was 185 miles with 10-12% reaming SOC .. and our eTron was much faster doing this same trip than our previous Tesla model X with more BS so call range .... the faster charging to 80-100% of the eTron makes a world of a difference..

so for local driving and long road trips we never once had any issues with range .. and from the looks of it every Mach E will perform even better .. so again .. all this talk about range is truly pointless.. and we never once use ECO mode!
