We bought a 2017 and it has all that crap. Ive only driven it a couple times, to much going on. I like knobs, plus the touch screen has finger prints and smudges on it all the time, drives me nuts. Then there is the glare..............Its my misses car, she likes it.
My wife drove an Explorer for 15 years, we took care of it and gave it to her parents for their occasional driving and ease of ingress and egress...
Got her a 2018 Expedition with enough technology to give me absolute sensory overload.
I HATE THE SHIFT KNOB on the console...
I HATE THE PARK BRAKE that is an electric button...
That thing works just opposite of what it should.
I HATE THE AUTO STOP that is absolutely useless for our driving patterns and it should have a permanent setting other than me putting a trailer plug in it or screw with wires to trick the system.
I LOVE THE POWERTRAIN and the overall vehicle is AMAZING. Ford really nailed the power, comfort, ergonomics and usability of the vehicle and I give it a solid A for my growing-boys family.
The SYNC, NAV, AM-FM-XM etc gets a B+ because I should be able to dim or blank it with one touch and the updates are few for the searches.
I would use Android or Pioneer in my Mustang.
