    New light & medium duty news

    March sales for Ford class 6 & 7 are still kicking Hino's butt in both classes. I haven't seen the latest figures.

    Ford/FCA Merger?

    I was searching to see if Iveco and New Holland/CNH are still a part of Fiat and I ran out of time, but I'm not sure at his time. . If those entities were a part of the deal, I'd be all for it!

    Ford vs Ferrari trailer

    I'm wondering if if we waited a few seconds, we find those are tears of joy!

    I guess the F-Max is only a tractor. Anyway, when it comes to Ford pride, you see it in this video and there's a ton of these on youtube. You don't see it here in the USA. If there was, there'd be a Ford class 8 category. Freightliner (Daimler/Mercedes) and International (VW/Scania) would be in big trouble! I think Ford is being nice. Maybe they can design a class 8 truck, then have Daimler and/or VW buy/steal it away again! I hope Ford gets at least $3 billion this time instead of $300 million!!!!

    I have to laugh. They've been cutting costs for 50 years! Why weren't these cuts made 50 years ago?

    also, check out this fire apparatus company based in Turkey. Unfortunately they're on Mercedes chassis. Too bad they couldn't team up with their Turkish neighbor Otosan! Check out the lift on the ladder that rides up and down like a roller coaster. Very impressive equipment! Volkan Fire Fighting Technology - YouTube

    I can't find a video I saw with about 20 of these yellow dumps/tippers in a caravan, but here's what they looked like. My question is if they built these 20 trucks, are these trucks sold? Would they build all these just for ad promotion? Ford Construction trucks *BRAND NEW* at BAS Trucks - YouTube

    Bob if that company trusts the Powerstrokes in the 550's, then why won't they give the mediums a chance? Are those F-liners etc. new or been in service for a while? Bluebird bus has been using the Ford tranny with the Roush propane conversion engine. I wonder how the Ford powertrain is performing in the Pierce Saber fire trucks.
  9. I don't really care what my MPG is. I want to know what the fuel usage (gallons per minute) is at 0 MPH (idle/in a traffic backup) , 40 MPH (avg. speed on a secondary road) and 60 MPH (highway). Should I take a route that is shorter but 45 mph speed limit with some traffic lights, or highway which is longer but speed is about 60 mph? Do NOT jump to conclusions. If I get to my destination 5 minutes sooner, that means my engine is off 5 minutes sooner, right? I wish Mythbusters was still on! Maybe they could have done a test!

    Number 10 surprised me, but when I told some people they said yeah, the electro chemicals in the brain boost the reach. Crazy! I hope 1 thru 9 are in the manual because I can't remember half of what he said! Top 10 Hidden Features of the New F150! - YouTube

    Great news! F600 probably would have won, but that's a 2020 model. Ford's F-550 Wins Commercial Truck of the Year - Vehicle Research - Work Truck Online

    How would you like to see this maneuver playing out in front of you!!?? There's another one called Tiller Drift Seattle hauled by an awesome tandem axle Pierce tractor. Fire truck changing lanes like a boss. - YouTube

    Well I would assume they're being made in Turkey at least.
