Oh yea.... much more things to come. Only the beginningI like Esteban. Although he plays his cards remarkably close to his chest, he is giving us all the clues we need to make informed decisions.
During his first Q&A, he gave us the heads-up regarding both Sasquatch Package and the 2.7L engine. He repeated that again in this second Q&A. In case listeners were not paying attention, he added the potential for Wildtrak delivery issues but did not mention Badlands. He also added the Lux package as a potential problem.
From his thinly veiled hints, I assumed the following. Please keep in mind, these are all my assumptions.
As an ocean kayaker, whenever I was confronted with a powerful riptide, I learned it is best to go with the flow.
- I assume there is a problem with the delivery of the new Goodyear M/T tires. Contractual agreements prevent him from being more specific or substituting other tires such as BFG or Hankook.
- Since the 2.7L engine is shared with the F150 they do not want to interfere with any F150 deliveries since that is their bread-and-butter line. They can not rob Peter to satisfy Paul.
- Lux package has a new product called Connected Built-in Navigation being developed in association with Telenav. A complicated system since it is intended to rely on an Alexa integration. That company provides most of its vehicle technology and must have an incredibly detailed contractual agreement. Trail Maps might also be affected.
I suspect Esteban has much more to share. Make your adjustments, fasten your seatbelt, and get ready for more to come.
For a two door, that a lot!!Yeah....last stat I saw was (as I recall)...only 25-30% of the reservations and polling were for 2 doors.
