Atleast SOMEONE got it!

Our Sport just arrived this afternoon! Wasn't supposed to get here until the 10th so this was great news. Will get to see it for the first time tomorrow morning before any dealer prep is done...hoping to not find any issues!

In the garage now. Warm weather here in sunny Arizona. It rained! We only get 10 inches of rain a year, and it rained the day I picked her up. The luck!

Its tucked in tight at the top of the radiator, kind of folded back on itself with a clip holding the plug end. Plug has a plastic cover over the copper male ends.

Thanks for posting that. Is that from your 13' Explorer? Or your Sport (do you have your Sport yet? I thought you had mentioned you had ordered one?).

The engine compartment looks totally different on ours (ie; we have no hose running next to the washer fluid reservoir like yours has), definitely no block heater cord in that spot on ours. I'm seriously starting to worry that they forgot the block heater on ours. Going to pull our build sheet and see.

Yes your right thats my Limited in the photo.

I was told ALL Canadian vehicles get the block heater but you may be correct with the SPORT. There is apparently what's called "Canadian content" thats standard options on all vehicles shipped to the land of $5/gasoline and tax on tax.

I thought the block heater was one of those items but you may be correct in suggesting they deleted that content on Canadian SPORT model's

Ok so I spoke to someone at CAP about the Canadian content. He advised that the block heater is a dealer requested option NOT a standard Canadian content feature.

Probably 95% of Canadian vehicle get them apparently along with US/Canadian Fleet customers.

On the Interceptor Order Guide its an option to select.

Thanks for the intel! It was ordered and forgotten on ours, according to Ford. Just waiting for the parts to come in and they are going to install one.
