My local dealer in Baton Rouge said they expect to have a demo in a couple of weeks, so we can see it in person. Has anyone else heard this from their dealer?

Albert @Granger Ford might be able to clarify. But I believe I read that mannequins were being sent for demo/touch/feel. Dealers could not sell the mannequins until there was 1500 miles on them. By specifying a mileage threshold indicates that they will be available to be test driven.

Can one person drive the 1500 miles. I’ll do it so someone can buy it.

Yes the will be held on the lot for customers to drive for 4 months or up to 4000 miles before it is available to sell...

Thanks, Albert. I knew I read about a mileage threshold, but I obviously got mixed up with the specific number. Was that dictated by Ford to the dealerships?

Yes it is, part of the program to get them...
Thank you. I didnt realize they were called mannequins. I'll just be happy to see one in person and test drive it. Will all dealerships get them around the same time?

Hopefully my local dealer will get these as well. When just looking at the dimensions (at 172.7” the sport sits between the Ecosport at 161.3” and the escape at 180.5”) it seems like a small vehicle. ford references it as a sub compact on its website, but in videos online it looks larger than those dimensions suggest. With the taller roof line, it also appears to have ample space inside. Comparing it to the bronco, it seems to have similar dimensions in head, shoulder, hip, and legroom for both 1st and 2nd row passengers. It will be interesting to see how big it is in person.
