That is a really late production date. That means the 2015s will not make it to the show room until 2015.

Why would it be so late? It's not like there's any major changes that would require retooling or the like.

Unless there is a major change coming to the DCT that's been delayed.

Unlikely as there is no new MFT version yet, maybe a software update to the existing gen II of Sync, but nothing based on a different operating system yet.

Remember the problems the early MK3 had and the dreadful roll out of the MKZ, maybe Ford (and Lincoln) is learning from their early roll out miscues. Hopefully the late production date means additional testing and refinement so they will have it right when cars hit the showroom floors.

Perhaps, but it is a dreadful time of year to introduce a new model. As an associate of mine used to say, on most days during the winter, you could fire a cannon through the new car showroom and not hurt anybody because it is vacant.

They will lose sales this fall to rival brands.

Plus the competition will have a several month headstart.

Maybe they're having second thoughts about the design that pleases old ladies and ignores everyone else.
