Where is the pen Clip

I have not found that yet.
Back right side of the cubby - couple of little foam fingers there to hold a pen vertical. Slightly too wide for an average pencil, but works fine for most pens. It is a nice touch 'cause otherwise, all pens end up on the bottom under everything.

But I think I am just going to drill a hole in the top of that wasted square protrubence in the left front of that box (where older models had a USB port). That will allow it to hold all sorts of pen or pencil shaped stuff, just like a pencil cup on a desk.

I will have to look at that today when I go outside I have not ever noticed it. And I just accidentally figured out that it puts itself back in park yesterday when I accidentally turned it off while it was still in drive.

It also changes from a Fusion to a Mustang on the HUD!
It changes to a truck in some of the off-road modes as well. Can't remember if its an F-series or an Expedition.

I always use cruise control when I am off road.

A feature I really like (and I think it is undocumented) is the visual feedback you get on the key fob when you remote start the car - green it started, red it didn't. So if I am too far away for the signal to reach I know to use the app.

First drive at night, had to test out the auto high beams.

Man.... They fricken fade on and off!!!! That's the coolest thing ever! WAY easier on the eyes, and also gives your eyes time to adjust instead of just blinking on and off highbeams.

They also work WAY better than the 2017 F-150's did, I can actually drive around my small town without them thinking they have to be on all the time.

I think the ambient lighting needs about 3 more steps from off to the first level of brightness though. The 12"Dash is too bright compared to the button backlighting i find as well too.

But i mean i love this thing more and more even with it's little quirks that have to be sorted out.

There's also a cool feature where the volume will automatically adjust when you stop and get going again. So that way you don't have to keep adjusting it due to road noise and stuff like that.

We're finding this is hit or miss. I turned it off today and have WAY better audio.

Love that once you turn on the auto brake hold feature, you never have to press the button each time you start the car. My Honda CR-V had this feature but you had to switch it on with every start up. Love brake hold!

Since I posted on what I don't like, I may as well list what I do like...
Didn't I'd like it or use it much but I am really digging the HUD.
Play/Pause button (not on the '18)
Ability to turn on all the lights in the car (couldn't on the 18)
Auto lock/unlock on both door handles.
Auto Seat adjust (Easy Entry)
Larger Cup Holders
Minor but nice... The double pull on the hood release.
I'll add more as they jump out at me

Cup holders are also “adaptive” squeezing the cup’s diameter, even in the back seat. Other cars have this feature in the front but not the back.
