While I agree that the belt line 'appears' to be a little higher as it approaches the rear, I think it is accentuated by the new sloping roof line. The 3rd row window shape has been slightly altered but looks to have the same overall area as the pre 2020 model.I can't stand the ever increasing height of the beltline, and the way it makes an ascent towards the back...such an unfortunate design. It's like they're trying to make the third window a pinhole.
There are many more changes than just the sheet metal. New front and changes to back end. New platform along with new transmission and engine. Change to RWD with AWD option. New interior and technology.I really think it looks too much like the current model from the profile. I’ve seen some cars get a mid cycle “refresh” that look more different from the previous version. When you consider that the 5th gen was already refreshed a few years ago, hopefully the actual 2020 un camouflaged pictures will reveal more obvious newness.
The 6th gen is actually a little larger than the 5th gen. The biggest change is in the wheelbase which went from 112.8" to 119.1" which would probably improve the ride a somewhat. My MKT was 117.9. According to the posted specs sheet, which doesn't include the Sport or Hybrid, the Platinum sits slightly higher than the rest and 0.2" higher than the 2017.Me too, although I was surprised in general that a camo-ed car was left unattended in a hotel parking lot. Considering the temperature here, maybe it's going for cold weather testing.
It was a lot lower than I expected, seemed to be at the same height as my grandmas subaru outback actually. And felt quite small too, compared to my 5th gen (background), walking around it.
I guess the camo worked really well at confusing my perception then. I got some more shots in daylight, and of the interior. Wonder how it's gonna look without camo.The 6th gen is actually a little larger than the 5th gen.
