Car & Driver November Issue: Full EB PP Road Test

Car & Driver apparently kept the orange EB PP they had at press day and did a full road test on it. It's the cover car of the November issue (arrived at my house yesterday), with a full write-up inside. Straight line performance numbers are the same (13.9 @ 94) but they are showing 0.96g on their skid pad. Pretty good. Observed 19 mpg, right on the EPA City number, which is pretty typical of C/D no matter the car.

Overall a very positive write-up, with the only downers being the engine's "slow to rev" nature and a back seat which they found smaller than the outgoing car.

I can't find this write-up on their web site yet, so no link yet. I will edit when it becomes available, or one of you may beat me to that.

The First Drive review from press day is referenced by Spartan below, but that is not the November road test.

Was the one in the new article an automatic? (like the first one) I really wish someone would do an instrumented test of a manual PP ecoboost.

If it's a good write up maybe you could you scan or take pics and post it up?

Yes, appeared to be the same loaded Competition Orange EB PP AT, all $38K of it. I agree, it would be good to see the MT tested. Seems like Ford is making only AT PPs available. Given that it's a turbo, my guess is it's measurably faster than the manual. Turbos like ATs since you never lift off the throttle and never let the turbine slow at all. We'll see.

I believe TFL had a manual PP, so I know they were out there. I guess it was just first come first serve.
