I read that they're going to go with BlackBerry QNX:So, with 2014 orders closed and 2015 production ready to start in June, what does the rumor mill say the changes will be? I had heard someone mention the possibility of Apple CarPlay replacing MFT. What have all of you heard?
I plan to order it as soon as the Ford Employee pricing offer returns.Although not much has been written of late, if you are thinking of a Fiesta ST I might suggest buying one now or ordering a 2015 ASAP. Current plans call for the Mexican plant to be repurposed for 2016 and Fiestas for the US may be coming from Thailand. If you want to order your car, the sooner you do the better off you may be.
CarPlay is a secondary system and could probably coexist with QNX.Ford announced they were switching to BlackBerry for their MFT interface last month.
Apple CarPlay is powered by BlackBerry QNX:CarPlay is a secondary system and could probably coexist with QNX.
Hadn't seen that, but it makes total sense.Apple CarPlay is powered by BlackBerry QNX:
Hmm. Few things with that report that i don't think are true.
Tinted windows are easy enough to get in whatever legal % you want from any reputable (or not so) shop you want. Window tint from the factory would likely cost more than a good tint job from a shop anyway. Considering the molten orange and green envy cost $595 extra each and paint already comes on the car no matter what color and navigation costs $795 extra and all it is is a difference in the software likely, I'd venture to say factory window tint option is going to be no less than $500. I got a good tint job with good quality tint on my car for $300 and most people I talk to about the price think it's too much. Of all the factory options or standard features I'd like to see, window tint really isn't on my list.Tinted windows would have been nice, I think it was an option in the UK last year. Also the braking is already available on the current 1.0 as you mentioned.
The regenerative braking is basically to supplement the alternator in charging the battery from what I understand. The 1L ecoboost isn't a hybrid either, but it comes with regenerative braking.Regenerative braking in an ST???
I can't see the point in that. It's not as if this is some stinkin' Prius!
Perhaps in the standard model it would make sense...
If I had to guess, they probably engineered this to get around some of the load issues the accessories put on the tiny little 3 cyl motor.The regenerative braking is basically to supplement the alternator in charging the battery from what I understand. The 1L ecoboost isn't a hybrid either, but it comes with regenerative braking.
