Dead Battery Syndrome - 2017 Ford Fusion, Explorer, Lincoln MK-Z
The most info could find is a 60+ page thread on a 2017 Fusion Sport forum:

Bottom line is that more and more people seem to be coming out to start their cars in the morning, and not enough juice left in the battery to do so. There's obviously an issue with the electronics (whether it's hardware or software/firmware caused) creating a parasitic draw that's enough to deplete the battery overnight (or possibly over a few days).
Being that it's a Fusion Sport forum, owners chiming in are specifically Sport owners. However a fleet manager chimed in that he's experienced the issue with other trim levels, there's anecdotal reports of people saying that they've heard of various 2017 Fusions needing a jump on dealer lots, and reports that 2017 Explorer and Lincoln MK-Z vehicles are also experiencing this.
Just wondering if anyone else has encountered this yet and what their experience has been. I'd really love to know just how widespread the issue is, and what percentage of owners are affected.
