I wonder if the antenna would get ripped out of the fender like the 2017?

You would think Ford would have put it in the glass like most others by this point.

Amazing the damage the truck got with the car wash ripping off the antenna.

Is the Antenna not that chuck of plastic on the top of the roof? I do not see any fender antenna and I agree with Cubical, so old school, why not a whip in the back of the roof or as Hyper says in the glass.

The 2017 is on the fender as they showed one on TV the other night that got taken off in a car wash. It took the base and all ripping a large hole in the fender they claimed was $6000 to repair. 
I a not sure on the new model as they may have photo shopped it out. 

Power antrennas are the worst. They usually fail after so long. 

Most cars embed it in the glass and the thing on the roof is for Satellite or other things.

My Jeep has an old school fender antenna, I always remove it before going through the carwash (unscrews at the base, hand tighten/loosen)..they should have done that..if Ford's antenna doesn't remove easily, that's absurd...an expensive truck shouldn't have an old time antenna, that's just stupidity and cheapassery...

Not much should have an antenna if it has a rear glass.

I never have had a car wash issue as I can honestly claimed I never took any car or truck I owned through one. 

Power washed and I have been lucky to generally heated to was most of my life. 

Right now now I have a heated garage where I was in shorts even below zero.
