The dealers are definitely not taking 2016 MKX orders, the order guide was finalized last week but remains confidential.
That could mean the X is not that far away?

Re: OrderGuides: F-L 2016my (just in case)

^ & ^^
watching a BBC show about Agatha Christie, I'm encouraged to look for a mystery...

...it sounds like there's some 'development' they're waiting for
like perhaps results of testing of the Nano+9speed drivetrain?
or a last minute snag in a primary suppy chain?

just afaik, OGs are NOT finalized until the Order Book is about to open
which is usually iirc only a month or 2 before Job1

^ Fields did state that he is slowing down the launch process for future vehicles to match the MKC to avoid issues. So expect MKX to trickle into production and onto dealership lots. Which is why I think the production date for the MKS/Continental seems to be moved forward to a 2016 delivery date as a 2017 model, to allow for a longer/slower launch timeframe.

Start early, push them out slowly.

Re: OrderGuides: F-L 2016my

Here are a few new ones.

Very few changes for the Fusion and MKZ. The only new color is the Shadow Black/Absolute Black replacing Tuxedo Black as reported previously. The MKZ sees the Light Dune interior replaced by Cappuccino as on the MKX, while the Hazelnut interior loses the two-tone black/brown look and becomes more like the MKC.

A BIG CHANGE for the hybrids is the introduction of an EcoSelect button. According to the order guide:
"The EcoSelect button located in center console will allow the vehicle to operate more efficiently with less aggressive heating and cooling, softer acceleration, more regenerative breaking, changes in engine behavior and EcoCruise control activation."

All the order guides are available on the Fleet website. You just need to know where to look.

It's about time. An ECO button was needed from the launch of the hybrid models, and is what's key to Prius models maintaining their high mpg. The idea of 'training' consumers to drive more efficiently has not worked. Consumers expect the car to do it for them, so they can post about the great mpg they got.

This button should offer 2 to 3 different stages of ECO for the hybrid vehicle with the ability to override the setting under hard acceleration. This is also a way to enable Ford hybrids to keep up with what's coming from Volt that will offer manual break regeneration via steering wheel paddles, along with an ECO button and expected to offer better mpg than the current C-MAX and Fusion hybrid. This should be something we will see on the 2016 refreshed C-MAX also, that should help boost it's mpg until the all new model arrives.

what I'd really like is way to put the original .pdf's URL into google so they can turn it into an html-file I can download at home
many/most newer Acrobat .pdf's won't load on my ancient puter...

...meanwhile:


funny how they're restricting the Hazelnut interior
AND
I wish they'd have offered BOTH TuxedoBlack and BlackVelvet
but
maaaaybe they're still trying to FIGURE OUT how they relate to [BL]BlackTie???

haven't figured out how to crop a screenprint at the Library yet
