I believe most, if not all Ford products, do not have the passenger door key cylinder. With the advent of the remote entry fob, the passenger door key cylinder is redundant (read: cost reduction). Those vehicles without the remote key fob have the driver side door key cylinder.
I have heard that it is due to savings in production, but has been piggy-backed to make it look like a safety feature. Maybe Canadians car jack from the passenger door Just kidding my Northern neighbors!!!
The first time that I noticed this was on the 2000 Expedition I drive for a company car. I just walked out to my F-150 which I bought new in 1999 and yes, it too is missing the keyhole! So, curiosity getting the best of me, I checked both my Bullitt and the Explorer. No passenger keyhole. Due to the size of the Ford key, sometimes it makes sense not to carry all the remotes. Is this really a better idea? I can still do an old fashioned key entry from the passenger side of the Boss. :LOL
