Having the "luxury" interior of the Outer Banks AND an exclusive color, Navy Pier, makes it an "exclusive interior."

I'm thinking Ford should change the name From First Edition to Greyhound Bus Edition. 😆

This whole process has grown tiresome. I've voiced my disgust with Navy Pier multiple times and refrained from saying more for weeks. I'm happy to support and sign whatever anyone can do, but it's quite obvious Ford and Mr. Levine know exactly how a very high percentage of their most loyal followers feel and they don't care. The constant tweets and hundreds (maybe thousands) of forum and online comments have made it very clear and impossible not to know how people feel.

On the FE, it can only be assumed someone is thinking it's only 7,000 units (even though we told you it was 3,500) and they'll easily get sold regardless, so let's ignore the masses and it will be over soon. Mansquatch on the other hand is something we'll hear about for years and we'll get to advertise that we truly are the best offroad option even though very few will actually buy it or use it that way.

Lastly, to reveal a new vehicle with interiors, tops, colors, etc that don't exist is asinine. You can do that with a concept car not with a reveal and reservation. It just annoys people. These guys are doing a masterful job of sucking all the fun and excitement out of what should be a great time.

Why don't the FE reservation holders just change their reservation to a Wildtrak and open up both their interior AND exterior color choices? You can add all the other options to it. Is it just about having that First Edition badge? Do we know if they are even numbered?

It is partially about the FE badge and body graphics, but it is also about the value retention/collectability potential of an FE with only 7k made. It is also about the combination of features that can not be duplicated on another model - unless that changes if they ever release the B&P.

Should we start a new thread?
Yes, probably. Because we're going to need more than our signatures. We're all going to need to share this thing like wild-fire. We only have until October 31st to be a massive voice in the change. After that date, dealers are locked.

I know, technically, we have until December, which is when ordering takes place, but once B&P is up, and our dealers are locked-in, our changes of change are going to drop to seemingly impossible.

Squatched 2.7 Auto Badlands with Lux gives you the exact same features minus the tacky graphics and ugly blue.

FE is only for status seakers that want that limited edition.

I agree and disagree. If I was looking for that status symbol I’d opt out for a 2021 G550 or a restored 2 bronco that’s ~$100k.
