Yes. The tray stops about 2" short of the rear of the console, leaving plenty of room to access the USB and RCA ports.

How deep is the tray? If you have cd cases in the bottom portion in the slots designated for them, will the tray fit over them?

Hm, not sure how I feel about the changes. The LED interior lights on my 2012 are really nice. But then the 2013s have knee airbags...

Tray will not fit if your cup holders are back to back only on the side to side ones. Tray is about 1 inch deep.

Yeah, it'll leave plenty of room below for your CDs.

Here's a pic of the console tray installed (and filled with crap). It's nice and shallow enough to leave plenty of room below and you can see my USB drive sticking up on the backside to show it leaves plenty of room to have things plugged into the ports.

thks for sharing... so if I understand correctly, when you want to access stuff under the tray, you have to pop the tray out or does it just slide, etc.?

It's made of flexible rubber and just slides in and out. It's held in by friction, so there are no latches or clips or anything.

Looks great. This little tray will seriously make a huge difference in storing things in the center console. Going to call my dealer on monday about getting one. Hopefully they can find it by the part #.

I think Ford should gift box these center console storage trays and mail one to each 2012 owner with an apology card for not thinking of this before. I am so over rummaging through that deep, dark hole under the armrest looking for a small item that has fallen to the bottom.

I love my TI but the lack of storage or cubby holes in the car was, IMHO, a glaring omission (along with the lack of AppLink). No place for the keyless fob. No place for spare change. No place for my phone other than the passenger seat. And a glove box (with no light) that is an ergonomic nightmare to access from the drivers seat.

I'm waiting for my gift box, Ford......
