2022 Ford explorer st line

Hello all,
I just picked my new 2022 st line and I noticed when I was parking that the front proximity sensors were not alerting me when I was getting close to the car in front of me. I spoke to my dealer and he said that only the platinum model had those sensors. Is this true? My 2019 xlt had the sensors and beeped when I was parking.

What? No. Our Limited, our ST both had sensors. There's a button that turns those sensors off maybe someone accidentally turned them off.

Not sure about the ST Line. Do you have rear proximity sensors. Regular ST's definitely do have proximity sensors

I have rear proximity sensors, front and rear cameras. Nothing happens when I pull forward to park.

Do you have Forscan? I would run a diagnostic to see if any error codes.

Also, do you have co-pilot360 and birds eye view camera system? I certainly think maybe its not standard and maybe related to options.

Looking online at pictures of the ST-Line for sale at different dealers they may not have them? In the pictures I can see the front camera but it do NOT see the proximity sensors. It is very possible you do not have them.

So after speaking to ford directly, the 2022 ford explorer st line does not have the option for front proximity sensors because you now have the co-pilot 360. This really sucks! It's not like the front camera turns on when you are parking, you manually need to turn the camera on when parking but it will shut off when backing up. Terrible idea to remove the front sensors

Yep, they don't come with them and you can't add them either

Well you have to turn on the camera when parking if you have proximity sensors or not. Simple button press. Just like the moaning about the Auto Stop/Start. Simple button press. Or just park by brail; drive until you hear or feel something.

You have a real ST. Original poster has the ST-Line which looks like an ST but does not have 3.0L twin turbo and now we are finding out it is lacking other features. Wonder what else Ford did not include?

Yes but he has a different trim level which it does not come with. Previous body style was standard on XLT and up but they decided to make it Limited in up with the redesign in 2020.
Oh gotcha! Sorry should have read the whole thread
