And they must be hidden pretty well because I can't see them, and I don't know why the would put them behind that front air ****. But don't get me wrong, it would be neat if these were what I think they are, but are they really tow hooks? And why haven't I ever seen them?
I just got back from the Philadelphia Auto Show yesterday and plan to return another day this week. When I am there I can snag a picture or two of the front end from various angles (including the underside) to find these elusive tow hooks.

Flat Rock being down for 4 weeks can only mean a new model(s) is coming. With the Fusion platform already there as 'overflow' for the primary Hermosillo plant, there is capacity for both the New MKS and New Taurus.

Lincoln said it was launching with the old system. Hopefully that changes before launch.

Re: OrderGuides: F-L 2016my

The 2016 Fleet Preview is now available. It provides some insights into what it coming this year. It looks like pretty much every model with a 2016 Job 1 after June 1 (except Transit Connect) will have Sync 3. The models with an early changeover (Explorer, Fusion, MKZ, MKX) are the ones that miss out until 2017. Also, this unfortunately confirms that the C-MAX is a carry over for 2016, and we don't get the revised styling of the European model.
