If that's the case why would you put it on vehicles in a tropical climate? But yet the vehicle price is unchanged for the American market. I mean really, WTF Ford! You even give the foreign markets a finished, cut out rear valence and decent exhaust tip. We get a sorry looking, hidden, plain turn down tip that looks like it should be on a Kia or Hyundai. Now after we spent $23K and up for our cars, we get to pay more $$$ to make it look finished and add back things you took away. I'm sorry, but this kind of behavior from a U.S. auto maker is totally unacceptable. The more of this I see, the madder it makes me.
Me too - but they had to leave something for Lincoln to base their [future] vehicles off of... lol
