I have owned four new Fords ina row.. All of them have been up about 500 rpm at the MOST in deep winter at cold start.
Usually my 2012 Focus is about 300 rpm over when first started. Within a block it is at normal rpm..
My last car also deep Winter would be warmed up in a few blocks.. I would start to have heat in six blocks..
