Hi all,

I've got a new Airline job! I got a technical writer position which pays way better than being a State licensed emission Inspector. Along with that, Ford tests a BUNCH of new vehicles near my job. I took pics of the all new 2020 Ford Escape Hybrid, some Ford GT's and what I think is the upcoming 2021 Ford F-150 Electric. Anyone else ever see a cammo vehicle out testing?

I tried uploading pictures but nothing shows? Any help? It gives me the option to upload photos from my cellphone.

Yes, it's pretty common around here. I've already seen two 2020 Vettes, one with camo, one without.

See disguised vehicles all the time. Auto makers drive them from Phoenix to Flagstaff. They usually travel in flocks.

AZ and Death Valley tend to be favored by the automakers for hot climate testing.

I've seen test mules through the Bay Area recently.
