Re: We can replace 23kw battery by new 33kw wiht same AC cha

Who knows maybe one of us will will find out over the next few years if someone has a battery pack failure and their pack is replaced under warranty. Then again I wouldn't put it past Ford to software limit the new pack to emulate the old 23kWh pack. Someone on the Facebook group for FFE Owners jus...

Re: Hint At Future Electrified Focus, Explorer, Transit, Kug

The ride experience, especially in the back seat is also much more pleasing in the Escape, I'm not sure why, as the interior dimensions are almost the same, but the Escape does have reclining (albeit minimal) rear seats. Don't the C-MAX rears recline too? I thought they did, but it's been a while s...

Parked next to my wife's Escape my C-Max looks virtually identical (except for the ugly mug on the front of the C-max). They both are basically "stretched" Focuses. Tried to tel...

http://insideevs.com/new-ford-energi-trademarks-hint-at-future-electrified-explorer-transit-kuga/ The Ford Kuga is what we call the Escape in the U.S. by the way. An Escape Energi would already be in our garage if it was available today (in place of the wife's MKC). An Explorer Energi would be grea...

Re: We can replace 23kw battery by new 33kw wiht same AC cha

I doubt anyone would be able to answer that for you. Nobody knows what the differences are between the two batteries. I think a new 33.5kWh battery would be very expensive. Supposedly the 33.5kWh battery is actually lighter than the 23kWh battery. There's no reason the old charger wouldn't work wit...

Re: can you take a picture of read door post info

INFO from the door post. My 2016 says: 275Kg /829lbs load 38PSI for tires What is your '17 saying for load (I already heard PSI is at 41) Since the GVWR is about the same I am curious if the larger battery capacity reduced the load or if they improved the batteries and made them lighter per KWH.

Re: MyFordMobile Issues
