Pushed the limit a little too far!
Wait this is the video I commented on earlier today that is being talked about? 😮😯😲😳

I was wondering how it was allowed to be posted! 😂

It violated the embargo rules. I'll bet Ford found out.
It was easy to post it. Just as easy as it was to go 70 in a 40 and 80+ in a 55.
I'll bet he just got a big ticket in the mail!

Yeah like I said I wondered how it was allowed to be posted... The answer was, it wasn't! 🙃

If I understood correctly the reason why OEMs do embargo is to give fairness to all the journalists. There are multiple events in numerous cities around the world. The embargo lifts after all journalists have had a chance to review the vehicle and then a couple days for all to get time to edit videos. It's so nobody has a advantage by getting to release video first.

that's what has been said elsewhere on here, yes - it stops the pressure to "be first" with what ends up being a terrible quality review (quality of review not quality of vehicle).

and in this case it seems from the "deleted no narration driving video" mess that Ford is taking the embargo very seriously.
