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

adding some dates from elsewhere...

No Production Start Date for 2016 MKX yet. But, 2015 MKX Final Orders Due: 8/29/14. Initial 2016 Order Acceptance is generally 1 to 3 months before final order due date. 2015 Edge Order Acceptance was 10/13/14. So expect dealers are taking orders for the 2016 MKX now.

2016 Fusion Production Start Date: 4/6/15. 2015 production start was 6/16/14. Which means the 2015 Fusion will have a short 10 month model year. Which also indicates something big is coming. 2016 will be time for a refresh. I expect the hybrid to get an mpg boost. This would also be a good time for Ford to extend the EV range from 19 to 25+ to better compete with the new 2016 Volt coming with 45+ EV miles. I also expect to see the LED lighting from the Mondeo come to the Fusion, along with more safety tech.

2016 MKZ Production Start Date: 4/6/15. 2015 MKZ had a later 7/21/14 productions start date. Which means it will have an even shorter 9 months model year. Could this be when Black Label actually makes an appearance for the MKZ? I expect the touch sensitive controls on the console to go away. Along with more safety tech from Europe coming to the Z. With just two more years left before the all new MKZ is launched, could Lincoln offer an Energi model? Don't think that will happen until next gen MY2019 with all new Lincoln platform. But I do expect the hybrid to get a mpg boost.

2016 Explorer Production Start Date: 4/20/15 = 201A trim••

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

I don't believe the Fusion and MKZ are getting refreshed until the 2017 model year. The cutoff and start of ordering between 2015 and 2016 are indicative of carry-over models, with one year stopping on a Thursday and the next picking up the following Monday. It would make sense to use the early 2016 start to launch Black Label, but I was under the impression that order guides for 2015 Black Label models had already been created.

We know the 2016 Explorer will be a refreshed model, and its ordering start date corresponds to its reveal date in L.A.

The 2015 MKX was little more than a model year number change in order to build new-year inventory in advance of the switchover to the 2015 Edge. Its ordering end dates corresponded with the 2014 Edge ordering end dates, and have no bearing on what the 2016 schedule will be. We won't see ordering start until sometime after the 2016 MKX is revealed, which only Ford knows when that will be. Who knows why they didn't do the same thing with the Edge and start both all-new models as 2016s with limited 2015 old model runs.

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

The order guides for Black Label are in the hands of the dealers for 2015.. I have personally seen them, and KBB, and now NADA has the prices..would it be possible Black Label will be introduced formally at the LA auto show?

I wouldn't begin to guess at ModelYears for F&FLmoco anymore
but
imho the calendar date for the MKZ mce is another, stoopid, very-Late cy2015
however
when they actually get to any dealerships could easily depend on how much of the country gets hit by the next Blizzard-of-the-Century

afaik, even a significant-style-wise MCE does NOT usually require plant downtime -- just when there's a platform-update/change
&
rhallanger,
that^ sounds like you're a Lincoln dealer or sumthin...
Any chance you could get us ORDERGUIDE .pdf's???


&
as usual, IMHO, the main criteria is WHEN CHINA GETS [BL]

I'm wondering if the CD4+3 platform is "up for review" = possibly cancelled already or drastically scaled-back

seriously,
who outside-the-company knows why FoMoCo does ANYthing (or... doesn't DO)

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

^ v.Thanks, rhallanger!

&
I finally got my puter to display the whole OG
and
There's a NEW BLACK!! ...afaik... called "Absolute Black"
has anyone heard of it before?
&
is FORD stealing my idea for LINCOLN? ie a non-metallic über-Black??


+
is the PlatTanium's 20" Bright Machined Face with Tarnished Dark Painted Pockets wheel
a bit too close to the MKZ's [BL] wheels??
just-imho they kinda look like a sport-variant of the same design ......{red portfolio}

Absolute black is traditional gloss black, no shimmer.

The dealers are definitely not taking 2016 MKX orders, the order guide was finalized last week but remains confidential.
