My dealer got the color 2009 Ford Escape brochures and as I pour through it while waiting for my FEH Limited to be scheduled, I read near the back under "Choose your options" that you are correct: Voice-activated Navigation System with neaarly 10-gigabyte hard drive, single-disc Audiophile Sound System ....(Available on Limited, Hybrid and Hybrid Limited)
Compare the above with this, located on the same page of the brochure: Audiophile Sound System with 6-disc in-dash CD changer, MP3 capability...(Available on XLT and Limited)
The key to remember is this: Limited is not the same as Hybrid Limited.

CONGRATULATIONS!! From what I can tell you are the first person I've read about receiving their FEH. As I wait out the "weather related delay" , strike, or whatever it is for mine; can you tell me where you're at and what your ship date was? My FEH was "shipped" on 7/1, but is still in KC.

Congrats. Please let us know how it shakes out. Our dealer here in Sonoma County CA still expects ours next week. I will keep everyone posted. It sounds however that the West Coast shipments have been delayed a bit. My original delivery date was 7/10. That's OK with me since I still have my 2005 Limited on Craigs List.

We are close to the Denver area. I don't know a ship date, it had a ETA date of 7/21, it came in early. The paperwork also indicates that it came by roadway. You will love this vehicle! It seems to me, that they thought of just about everything. Hope you get yours soon!!

Enjoy your vehicle. My arrival date was 7/14. Right now, I'd just like to know when it may start coming this way. I'll keep my fingers crossed.

Our company fleet manager was told last week that Ford aren't producing any more 2009"s, will have to waiy for 2010"s...doesn't that seem strange to already be stopping 09 production? Maybe it's misinformation Ford are sending us so we buy Explorers instead?

Congratulations!! Would you be willing to share pictures of your new ride? Pictures of the 2009 FEHL are hard to find.

Could it be that there is enough retail (Type 1) and dealer stock (Type 2) orders in the pipeline that fleet buyers are being told that there is no remaining production capacity to fulfill additional fleet (Type 3) orders this year?
Jul 20, 2008 (8:18 am)
Yes, I will take some today. I will post again when I get them and we can figure out how to post.

I received an update on the Blue Oval Forum that advised my FEH was in-transit and MOVING! So whatever the delay was, the good news is vehicles are moving from the factory to the purchasers.
