  1. People are stuck in their ways-its just like carbs vs fuel injection back in the 1980s
  2. There is no reason not to share information (well maybe there is since your friends supposedly signed an NDA as part of their job) , but at the same time don't take it like your Moses delivering the 10 commandments either...all your trying to drive home here is that your self important...which is why you left and changed your name. We have other people who post "insider info" but the also don't come across like nails on a chalkboard either. As for your info about the Bronco-I guess it never crossed your mind that it might come at an MCE after the Ranger launches with a hybrid? That would make more sense then saying its cancelled outright..you just won't prob see a Hybrid Bronco till 2023MY or so if that is the case.
  3. We are all saying the same thing, just in a different way LOL I agree, for general use PCs, a dumb terminal is your best bet.
  4. That isn't going to work too well with AutoCAD and serious engineering software that needs the Horsepower to run them-I know there is VM that can support it, but if you have a laptop for example, you could always work from home if needed or wanted.
  5. How about taking a step back and actually see how this all shakes out before freaking out? I know its your livelyhood, but to automatically assume the worse isn't going to help matters. Negtivate news moves much faster then good news. It also makes zero sense to make a Ranger Hybrid and not a Bronco Hybrid, much in the same way it makes no sense to make an Escape Hybrid, but not a Maverick hybrid-they are both on same C platform. The reason why Ford did the RWD Hybrid powerpack design was to spread the costs across different products, though most of the heavy lifting for paying for it will come from the F-150 and Explorer. We might not see a 2.7L EB Hybrid , but I'd say a 3.3L V6 Hybrid would be more likely. I wouldn't hang my hang on BORG's rumors-he talks alot and better then half the time its not correct....and that came and bit him in the ass famously this week with saying Lincoln isn't planning something on the Mach E platform and 24 hours later Ford leadership said they where.

    Bronco Hybrid Cancelled/Delayed

    Apparently-if that wasn't the case, you wouldn't have seen the nearly finished Mini Bronco/Maverick at the dealer meeting-I'm assuming that they where doing design studies at the time and weren't sure what path they where going with it. There's been references to the Gen Z crossover for a year or two before this, so who actually knows and alot changed suppositly when Fields got fired-but IMO it didn't with new products, because the RWD Explorer was suppositly fast tracked, even though it was rumored for the past 24 months or so before that. Just look at the general stupidity of what happened in 2017 with different products and management. They really screwed the pooch with this. Ford is pulling their own Camaro relaunch with this- the concept came out in 2006 , but didn't launch til 2009 or so. I'm assuming the issue is timing with the NG Ranger-since the Bronco will be on the next gen T6 frame.

    Bronco Hybrid Cancelled/Delayed

    Comeon- Oh we are going to kill off the Bronco Hybrid, but yet we are going to keep it on its platform mate, the Ranger? That is fucking stupid! Given Your track record on things @Assimilator , Lets see if this actually pans out or if this just disgruntaled employees talking shit or making shit up.
  8. I wouldn't be the least bit suprised if it wasn't someone trolling using his name-like that PantherMafia idiot we had here-I seem to recall he did that in the past.
  9. 2019 +36 months-2022CY Which means 2022/23 MY
  10. I dunno, I just took a look at the comments and it might be someone else with the same name? Someone called him out about being on BON, and whoever it was had no clue-I never remember RJ trolling like that ever and while I know he wasn't happy with the way Ford is doing business, I don't think he would turn into a super troll like that.
  11. So is that confirmed or not? or it is going to be another Borg, ah cough Assmulator quote that gets disproved 24 hours later?
  12. Uh because it just came out this year? The replacement should be coming in the next 36 months.
  13. Don't bend the numbers to suit your needs: The total world wide BEV market is roughly 1% of total market https://www.businessinsider.com/electric-cars-roadblocks-tax-credit-2018-4 Its not going to change in 5 years either...people are keeping cars/trucks longer, pretty much anything you buy today will last you 10-15 years with just minimal mainatance on it. The recharging infranstucture isn't there yet to support all these vehicles-there is going to have to be a standarized system and stations built to support them. The US isn't Southern California. In 10 years, yet, but not before then-we will slowly get there or at least have a decent percentage of vehicles that are electric.

  15. Why not just make it a Ranger at that point?
