Yes, Ford has some balls for entering the nearly 100% aluminum group like that Tesla electric supercar thing, but like I said, its a risk. If the payloads and towing ratings are the same or greater, I think it's a hell of an advancement in aluminum technology. I think that this will bring the full size crew cabs back down to the 5,000 lb range. And Kris, I think it's unbelievable that these half tons weigh more than our old obs powerstrokes.
As for the diesel part, the reason I think Ford should get a diesel is because of the fuel economy numbers the Ram Ecodiesel is showing. 28-30 mpg highway is unbelievable in any truck these days. Also, the longevity of the engine. I think they should drop in the 4.something liter 6 cylinder powerstrokes they used to put in cabovers. That's my two cents.
Good for Ford. I hope that they stay number one. It's all my family has ever owned and it's all I'll ever own. Who knows, maybe I'll have to go to the bank and see if I can take one home when they release them.
