I also laughed at the lower body striping "fix," because for the price folks will be paying for these cars, it's disappointing that the decals weren't even cut properly until now. Just has a real cheap feeling.

I think the grill is an improvement, but I'm not so sure about the badges and graphics.

I think the lighter colours will look better with the old / black badges and that the graphics would looked better profiled to match the arch radius rather than just being cut square ?

I agree with the lower grille - that bothered me a lot, about the original prototypes.

"every nuance serves a purpose" but you still can't have

Rapid Red
Carbonized Gray
Antimatter Blue

But thanks for fixing the stickers........:facepalm::facepalm::facepalm::facepalm:

How about you fix the color palette to include ALL colors since you are "pushing for perfection" and give me Rapid Red?

C'Mon 2022!!!!

I agree with the changes. Especially on Iconic silver. Less likely to look goofy with two different silver like colors. Good job, Ford!

I was excited till I loaded a Mach 1 up with all the options and the A10. I'm not paying over $60,000 for a Ford with the same 5.0 engine. I'm looking at paying off my current 17 next month and forced induction options instead.

I don’t like it for a couple reasons. First of all, some of us have already ordered a car and have a deposit down based on what we originally saw. Second, the emblem change is the worst of the three updates. The darker emblem looked more modern and Ford says they went to the silver outline to look better on darker colors? The signature color for this model is a light color. Shouldn’t that be the focus?
the more I think about it the more irritated I am that they would make cosmetic changes to a car that many have already ordered. They should have waited until 2022 to fuck with it.

I’m really happy with all these changes. The badge is probably the one I’m most excited about. The old one had no detail, and unless you were looking REALLY closely at it, it just looked like a black blob. If you’re that upset about it, just plastidip the damn thing, it’s not that hard... in fact, it’s a lot easier than when I was planning on having a custom made badge created to include the silver outline and replace all the badges on the car with it
