I thought it felt natural. Like how a steering wheel should feel. I would not want a loose wheel going 60mph+ and a stiff wheel around town.

If this was Ford's intention on the steering design they get a+ from me.
That's exactly what I experienced during my test drive of an SE model. That's Fords EPAS system doing what it is supposed to do.
