    I wonder how aftermarket 4wd conversion company Quigley feels about this news???
  2. The composite oil pan on the 3.5EB was discontinued earlier this year. It was a 2 piece design that sometimes proved to be “troublesome”.
  3. I’m simple. Free WiFi in-plant might be cool?

    Good to see (sarcasm) that communications is terrible nationwide. This had to have been decided upon some time ago. Why not a heads up before now? It’s a good move, but it would have been good to know earlier. Ford HR stinks.

    Cleveland Engine Plant. I think there are a few laid off tradesmen that are eligible to sign if they wanted.

    Saw a posting for CAP today..... needing 180
  7. If these doors do appear on this car.... there's no way Ford calls them suicide doors. The PC babies in this country would go crazy calling Ford insensitive for using that word, etc.
  8. Id take a focus hatch.... give it the Subaru Crosstrek treatment, and be done with it. Awd and charge about 23-27k for it. Done. Profit with little engineering. But, admittedly there is some Escape overlap that might not be good towards the bottom line?
  9. I had a 2015 Escape FWD with 2.5. I did mostly highway driving and got nearly 30 mpg consistently. A rocket? No. But it just felt good to drive. And oh yeah.....with that engine, it didnt come with the &$@:$ start/stop system.
  10. On this topic, I dont think the oil companies are going to just sit back and watch their world get eaten alive by EVs. Wont they attemp to keep people in ICE cars by keeping the cost of fuel low? Bad for their profits, but good for the customers?
  11. I havent seen the short block yet. There are a few of the new engines at the plant, but they are complete builds. Sorry thats about all I know.
  12. The 2.3 going in will be assembled at Cleveland Engine Plant. It wont be a direct lift from the current line of 2.3 ecoboost engines. Definitely a new, upgraded engine.But, from the same family of the current 2.3s. Lots of work and upgrades being done to the assembly line. With more to be done this summer. I would assume, Ford wouldnt do all that work and spend all that money to produce an engine that make the same numbers as its current line up.
  13. It won't be the 2.0 ecoboost
  14. There will more than one engine choice for those vehicles. Cleveland will be supplying at least one of them.
