    Start Stop Disable

    I love the stop start feature. I even will roll down the windows and endure a bit of heat rather than run the A/C and have climate control force an early re-start while sitting at a traffic light. Ill sit and hold the brake down rather than put it in park when dropping off a passenger for a quick errand too. Tip: To avoid the auto stop and restart when shifting to park just turn off the car without going to park. it will automatically shift into park.

    Ford ST SUV experience

    I wanted to go but only the Park City location was open at the time and its pretty far from CT. There aren't many flights and flight times mean I would have had to spend 2 extra days out there. Driving was not an option as the drive would take longer than the entire event.

    New ST-Line

    😂 German megabrew vs American megabrew = German all day. But in terms of all beer (micro/macro breweries) Americans have the best beer in the world.

    New ST-Line

    well the 3.7 vs the 3.5 was fairly significant. 20hp and nearly 30ft/lbs torque. Didn't help much in 0-60 but the 3.7 had a more sporty powerband. But yeah the 2.7 vs the 2.0 was a much bigger jump.

    2020 Ford Edge ST

    That sounds like 100% negatives... that sucks. I see the remnant of the center dash cubby.. looks like it lost a tooth.

    ST at race track

    That is impressive. The 335 here would just look like a typical teenager car here unless you know BMWs to identify it as a rare model. Would make a nice sleeper and efficient daily driver.

    ST at race track

    Thats pretty darn quick... but it better be for $70,000 ... Still not a fan of BMW but they have definitely done well with the M line performance.

    Poor trans shifting theory investigation

    They replaced my TC for the bucking and flares. Ask them to disable the lockup solenoid and see if it still does it.

    Ford Performance sill plate

    There was someone here that got mismatched exterior trim it was chrome I think on one side.

    New/Used Vehicle To Keep Miles Down On The ST

    Don't worry to much about depreciation. It will do better than any non AMD Mercedes and non M BMW for sure (Closest price/size feature competitors) and about on par in % with Hyundai and Honda. Being a Sport model it will always hold a unique appeal to the right buyer also so it can beat the trend.

    New/Used Vehicle To Keep Miles Down On The ST

    My 2011 Sport did very well I traded it after 8 years for over 30% of original purchase price. Also so far according to KBB my 19 ST looks to be doing pretty well also. Depreciation seems about the same as anything else on the market.

    Poor trans shifting theory investigation

    I think I understand. I failed to factor the torque even outside the peak powerband in a lower gear vs the torque within the powerband with less multiplication provided by a higher gear. The only issue though now with a 5500rpm shift point is the close gear ratio has you theoretically enter 3rd gear at 5000rpm at 45mph and shift again at 50mph. I guess that is where the skipped gear comes into play. Skipping 2nd shifts into 3rd at 31mph and 3500rpm (Theoretically).

    It isn’t faster as is. I suspect Ford protects the trans by shifting outside of peak power and likely torque targets help keep it in the safe zone. It may be part of why an SQ5 is faster with similar specs but a better transmission.

    I just did some quick math to help the discussion further. I'm sure there are alot of other variables and potentially even errors. Feel free to look it over and see what you think. From my calculations though using our known final drive, tire diameter and the 1st 6 gears we should have shift points under 5000 for maximum effectiveness. revving beyond 5k just shortens the effectiveness of the next gear and pulls it further out of the power-band. Average shifts should be 4556RPM according to my math (please someone check it) Gear Ratios.xlsx
