Is is true newer vehicles has more things 'active' even when vehicle is not running. Not sure about Ford, but I believe GM suggests to dealers cars on lot be started every two weeks. One week would seem a little short for it to drain.
We've been seeing a few more complaints like this in the Edmunds Forums but it's hard to say that it happens "often". Battery life seems to be getting shorter as well and that's also been attributed to more gizmos.Be curious to see if this is addressed in your owner's manual and would also be curious to see what the dealer or someone at Ford says.
