Nothing. Its just a black area where the LED display should be (see picture on 3rd post in this thread). I agree with the supply chain, and I definitely understand it, but they shouldn't let this slide, especially on their top trim level. Or at least inform me that when the supply is back to bring it in and they'll fix it. Granted, I am sure the average consumer wouldn't notice this but the average consumer doesn't spend $85k+ on a car and I would like to think most people who get a black label trim have decent attention to detail.Intriguing. My 2020 Reserve has this, and it is definitely a great feature. My theory is supply chains. These little displays look like OLED to me, and working in the electronics industry I know that supply chains have been completely messed up due to COVID recently. I think an initial drop in supply, followed by a completely unexpected rise in demand caused this. Some of my suppliers are quoting 26 week!!!! lead times....for parts that used to be stock.
If Ford suddenly found itself in this situation, I could very well see them "removing" the feature on certain vehicles and replacing it with software/main screen.
On the vehicles that are missing this feature, what is in the spot where the little display window is supposed to be?
This is simply a theory, but given the current global situation, and my own experience in manufacturing, I wouldn't be surprised. There will be no way to verify this with Ford though.
I thought Lincoln was trying to differentiate itself from other car companies? This falls right into the same category as other car companies and makes me think someone higher up monitoring the supply thought to themselves "oh, we don't have those LED's in stock, build it without it, the customer won't notice."
