    F150 Electric Spied

    Maybe it's easier to get EV's to market quicker because they don't have to certify emissions?
  2. My 96 F150 was my favorite truck that I ever owned.

    New Ford 7.0 L....?

    Probably not. There’s usually a “dog house” with a removable cover. It’s easier than when it’s in a pickup.

    New Ford 7.0 L....?

    With as quiet as the PSD is, it wouldn’t even have to be a pusher.
  5. A "city" van could be electric, which would make sense if VW is taking the lead on it. Maybe we'll see a Ford version of this to replace the TC.
  6. Let's save the 7.3L big block for the Ford Racing Cobra Jet version.

    2020 Ford Explorer

    It probably costs the same to make the 2.7 and 3.0 which is probably why the 2.7 is not offered. I wouldn't be surprised to see the 3.0EB replace the 3.5EB and the 2.3EB replace the 2.7EB in the F150. Of course they'll keep the 3.5EB HO for the Raptor, Limited, etc.

    2020 Ford Explorer

    I am willing to bet you a pint of your favorite beer that the 2.3EB in a RWD Explorer will have similar performance numbers to the 3.5EB in the current AWD Explorer Sport. Look at the performance of the 2.3EB in the 2018 Mustangs, it's amazing.

    2020 Ford Explorer

    We have the 2.3L EB in our 2017 Explorer and it's a great engine. I much prefer it to the V6. Test drive one, it may surprise you.

    A new Thunderbird - "For All the Right Reasons"!

    Personally, I would like to see the name "Torino" attached to the vehicle that you just described.
  11. And I am glad they do, selling perishable tooling pays my bills.
  12. That'll give me a good reason to go next year, I skipped it this year.
  13. A Lincoln Aviator based truck would be cool too.
  14. The CD6 Explorer has HEV and PHEV options as well as the 3.0EB. I'm willing to bet a pint of your favorite beer that the CD6 Explorer will have a much better ride than the Ranger and the Limited interior will be much nicer than the Lariat.
  15. I understand the old Sport Trac was BOF, but it had IRS and was very different from any other BOF trucks. A new Explorer based truck would have many more powertrain choices, should ride & handle better, be wider and easier to get in & out of than the Ranger. People that are buying Ridgelines are doing so because they want an SUV/Minivan with a bed and would have no interest in a Ranger or F150. There are going to be new unibody trucks coming to market and I think Ford could set the standard with the rumored C2 based Courier and an Explorer based Sport Trac. I know personally that I would replace my Fusion Sport with a Sport Trac ST but I would never consider a Ranger (FWIW - I love the Ranger and think it'll do great, it's just not for me).
