It seems to be quite a trend to make a new car look like a mild facelift of the previous one nowadays...

Agreed...this looks like just a MMC. But, it's a CUV, so will sell boatloads. Which means that top executives will learn that a small amount of money will lead to still being great in sales - perpetuating laziness and mediocrity - which seems to be exactly what the furniture salesman leading Ford likes.

Can someone remind me the last time Ford took a risk in their designs?

Stylistically it's a big stumble. It's not ugly but it mimics the not entirely good looking styling of its predecessor. On to the Bronco.

The lower sleeker profile look much better though, specially that short front overhang made possible by having a RWD-AWD platform.

In general, I like and it's a massive improvement over the current generation (hope they corrected the off-center steering wheel placement), but three big caveats:

(1) WHAT IS THE POINT of an electronic gear shift like this if it's just going to sit in the middle of a huge center console? At least cut out the space underneath for additional storage, like they do in the Aviator (and Navigator).







(2) In typical Ford fashion, the center stack just seems overly wide and bulky particularly the way it flares out near the knee spots on either side, but I'm liking the controls (particularly in comparison to the cheap look of the current gen).





(3) The infotainment screen seems to be pitched slightly downward, which I suppose is to reduce glare but it seems like it might be a little odd when sitting in the driver's or passenger's seats and you're looking at it.

That infotainment screen is among the worst offenders of the "iPad glued on" look so far. Is it so hard to have it just a slightly bit integrated?

That said, it does seem very vertical or even slightly pitched backwards, but in terms of glare that's a good thing...

i actually like the interior here...it doesn't make up for the laziness of the exterior...but it's certainly nice.
