    As an Uber/Lyft driver eyeing this vehicle, the 3rd row is important to me. It allows me to take XL fares, which are much more lucrative. My 6 passenger 2018 Explorer's rear seat is used 5% of the time. However, being able to theoretically carry more than 4 passengers allows people to call for an XL vehicle even if they only need 3 seats but more cargo room. The frunk will be helpful if I take 6 passengers and luggage.

    Anybody notice that in spite of the battery, motor and 3rd row seat options, that the curb weights of the 105kWh, 135 kWh and 180kWh models are all the same at 3470kgs?

    The motors are the same on all models, I believe. It's almost certain that the spec sheet that has been released is for a particular configuration and that weight will vary slightly based on battery pack and options. However, in an almost 3-ton vehicle the weight variances will probably amount to very little relatively speaking.
