Only if you did not shame Ford for panel gaps on new production Explorer, and then immediately excuse old Tesla models for theirs.

Sorry son, you are guilty as charged.

Re: 2020 Lincoln Aviator

I will say the gauge menus are confusing and layered. I also was thrown off by the steering wheel's toggle selectors, which don't push in for ok, you have to toggle it right for "OK" which is kind of un-intuitive.



One feature I did think was really cool (and an idea I had years ago) - when you turn on the windshield washers, the stream doesn't spray all over the windshield from nozzles under the hood, it comes out from the edge of the entire length both wiper blades. A really neat touch.

The SUV of the year will be the Lincoln Aviator
The truck of the year will be the Jeep Gladiator
The car of the year will be the Chevy Corvette

Drove an Aviator Black Label over the weekend and loved it.

Re: 2020 Lincoln Aviator

I went through the Lincoln Aviator configurator and spent a couple days on it and weeded my way down from my Black Label Aviator for $82K to Reserve I for $62K! I will try the Standard tomorrow to see if I can weed it down even more! I guess I hung up on the ventilated front seats since that what I have in my car now but is it worth the extra $3K? Probably not! I remember doing the Standard configuration with AWD and it came to around $57K. So it only $5K more. I will buy aftermarket wheels so I may go with the Standard and for go getting the ventilated front seats; go with the aluminum trim interior. Get aftermarket interior trim pieces too later on.

Had sometime afterward and got a Standard model for $55K! That is a $7K difference!

I think I am going to call Costco Auto Services and ask to buy it on Monday! I know from past experiences, the dealer sales guy 1. Wants you to buy from inventory, 2. Ignores your request to have it built or give you pricing on it but continue showing you cars in your price range in stock. After finding a stock vehicle, has to go talk to sales manager. Give you their price. Call Costco and find out it is too high and you tell sales guy and he goes back to sales manager and you get the actual Costco price printed out. Ask for to fill out purchase agreement. Will let you test drive the vehicle for 10 minutes on their route only if you are willing to complete the purchase agreement. I always want the built it and they are not interested in that. Leave dealership! The end.

What you guys think?

Got it.

Hi HELLboy. The completly new Ford Escape is starting the launch process. The magazines reviews are in the web since yesterday. Go and try to find some early assembled unit with the logical faults in quality and make another scandal. You looks bored...
All first drivers....first drives are ALWAYS positive because they are sponsored 😉....
