  1. Because the other engine options are not competitive in the half ton class?

    '21 F150 SuperCab Spied

    RAM allows the camera to be in use for like 5-10 second intervals while driving. Ford should do the same.
  3. So by newer I assume your 3.5 is different than my 2.7 in some way (or for that matter the 1.6 in my Fiesta ST)? I average about 27mpg at 70 mph in my Fusion. 29mpg from a 3.5EB in a ~5000lb truck is unbelievable and basically impossible. I hope you actually check the fuel mileage with something besides the display on the IP.
  4. How? 55mph no stops? I average about 20ish mpg in my 2017 Fusion Sport during the work week. There are several round-a-bouts on my 8 mile commute to the office and I don’t drive with a heavy foot. No way you average 24mpg in mixed driving on an entire tank of gas.

    NEW 2021 F150

    Ford listens to truck buyers and truck buyers want a mast antenna for better reception while tuning into their favorite AM radio programming.

    It’s a Sasquatch sticker of some sort lol.

    Interesting to note that the drop down in the front door near the mirror has disappeared (unless of course the camo is obscuring it or I am blind).

    Ford under emissions investigation?

    You don’t have to read the news to see a headline. Your OPINION is that the majority of people don’t read the news. My opinion is that you are wrong.

    Ford under emissions investigation?

    Huh? So the majority of people don’t read the news? That makes zero sense. This will be plastered all over the news if Ford is indeed found guilty of what has been described in the articles.

    Jeep gladiator starts at $35k

    I’m speculating that the lease prices will lead to impulse purchases. If the Ranger had this kind of predicted residual/lease price, I would order one tomorrow. https://www.autoblog.com/2019/04/26/dirt-cheap-jeep-gladiator-lease-offer-is-143-month/

    Ford under emissions investigation?

    I agree with your perspective, however, the spin from the media will always make this seem worse than it is. It’s not a good look regardless of the outcome.

    Ford under emissions investigation?

    Yeah nothing like an “honest” mathematical error. The monetary fine will be of no importance compared to the negative publicity and the perception of Ford attempting to cheat the system.
  13. I read the C&D article. The Ranger has negative marks for fit and finish (something about the headliner), on road ride (this has been called out by multiple sources), and braking (pedal feel and 70-0 stopping distance). They also rated it last among the trucks tested, the Gladiator was rated one place ahead.
  14. Thanks for pointing out the message from Farley. That was 6+ months ago. Things change. The Ranger needs conquest sales, no doubt about it. But yes I agree, the reality is, Ford should offer both loyalty and conquest rebates.
  15. You thought wrong. New (old) truck, late to the market, some not so positive reviews (call it what you want)...you better believe Ford is looking for conquest sales.
