With the new CAFE rules does this mean Ford will need to bring the T6 to the US market? If so I would like mine to be a 4x4 quad cab with upcoming a 2.7 liter Ecoboost (code named Nano) engine and a 6 speed auto please.

Please let us know, because otherwise I 'm going to probably jump on the Tacoma when they update the power train mid 2013

Taco is overpriced, underpowered, and doesn't have a fully boxed frame or rear disc brakes.

Does a compact/midsize truck really need a fully boxed frame and rear disc brakes though?

Overpriced, due to a lack of competition.


Add a class 4 hitch and the frame-rails become its boxed in. A fully boxed frame is probably overkill. It would be nice to have, but still overkill.

The Nissan Frontier has a more powerful V6 than the Toyota Tacoma. It also has a full-length boxed ladder frame and four wheel disc brakes on every single trim level.

I could see CAFE forcing the T6 and F150 programs to combine eventually, but probably not for another 10 years.

Closer to 5-7 years.

In any case FGord will have to make it's best selling F Truck, the F150 more fuel efficient
but how they do that is the big question, hybrid? Echoboost? diesel? less weight?
