Capless fuel fill.
My CRV has one and you cannot spray wash with the fuel door open...

Mixed feelings. No cap to lose, but no washout 'interior' either. Better not splash mud/river water up too high either.
There's a door that keeps stuff out that only opens when you put the fuel nozzle in or the plastic one Ford provides.

That's cool, I hadn't noticed this!
I'm not the biggest fan of the newer Easy Fuel filler necks. Doesn't bother me to take the cap on and off, it's a clunky and unnecessary "convenience" . As someone who has to constantly fill vehicles with a gas can, (auto auction and towing) they're quite annoying. Maybe 1 out of every 10 still has the funnel present
I think they're fantastic. I don't want to touch a gas cap.

Guess you haven't put fuel in any Ford in the last 7-8 years? My '13 ST had it, and all my Fords since. I'm not sure when they started on the trucks.
My '09 Flex had it. I'd imagine the '09 F-150 got it too since it was new that year as well.

Christ, nothing makes you people happy
I'm pissed that they're facing the back of the vehicle. COME ON FORD. THEY SHOULD BE HEADING FORWARD NOT BACKWARDDDDD!

I know, it's ridiculous.

Bronco makes me happy. Can't understand why you'd say this. It's just a comment on the feature. Others seem to have a solution to a valid point (except the orange mocha frappuccino).

Wait a second... are these the easter eggs?

What are those things under them? I hope the different models mean a future truck version and roadster version is in the cards, sales willing. Maybe those dots are numeric or something to indicate the timing?

The little Broncos are pretty cool. The cap less fuel filler is a non issue.

I’ve had capless fuel fill since 2013. When I drive my fiancées car with a cap it annoys me way more than it should.

Maybe I am paranoid, but cap-less spout is a vulnerability and yes my F150 is the same way. It bothers me too.

No vulnerability there. No way for fuel to come back out. It’s a proven design that has been a Ford standard on all their vehicles for years now. They auto seal and only open with a filler spout. You need a plastic filler spout to fill the tank from a gas can.
