Itís not RWD only. The base model is RWD; upper level trims are AWD, dual motor.

The release schedule for this puts it out about the same time as the Y. But unlike Tesla, Ford is leading with the low spec versions. Itís not going to release the GT until 2021.

I think the RWD model is so they can advertise 300 mile range. The big battery AWD models are 275, and the GT is 250.

I’m intrigued still...

Ford dumped MS for Sync 3 a few years ago. MS replacement was Blackberry. Yes. Blackberry.

I wonder if they're actually behind Tesla in terms of range and efficiency, or just more realistic about reporting it... And/or more restrictive on charging to prolong battery life.

I don't mind Tesla's "charge to 100% if you want, but don't do it often because it's wears out the battery" policy, but it does make their stated range claims a bit useless. They should publish an "everyday range" number as well. Analogous to city highway. "Max and everyday "

I like it-- I mean the whole "slope back crossover" style trend isn't my favorite but overall it's not bad looking and I prefer it to the Model Y. I'd consider one.

Mach-E, something I was not interested in the least, looks that much better after the CyberTruck reveal...
