It now looks like you can by the parts to change a 2013 into a 2014 for around $300 from your FORD Dealer. :)

Paul, can you elaborate on the changes between 2013 and 2014? What are the parts and what improvements are they supposed to make to mpg?

The only changes of significances are the air dams in front of the wheel. The two spoilers on the back windows  I'm not seeing doing much for MPG's, same with the hood seal, not all 2014 have it. I have the front front air dams, but still don't have the rear part #s, working on it. :)

Not true, mon ami.  The 2014 has had changes made to the transmission to improve fuel economy.  Also there were some light modifications to the aerodynamics.  Also the 2014 models use 0w15 oil instead of 5w15 oil.

 

I thought my 2013 (November build) had air dams in front of the wheels but I was wrong.

I think this is in another thread, but the Part#s for the 2013 and 2014 transmission are the same unless ford has updated their parts list with new #. :)
