Happens a lot, Acura just burned down an NSX a few weeks back.

I do like the fact that NO one had a fire extinguisher

Great photos none the less

It's interesting how the first photo shows nothing wrong and the second one shows smoke and fire from the driverside.

a little ironic that they were towing hundreds of gallons of water...

Judge by where the smoke and fire starts.....I'm gonna guess its a fuel line and heat source like the exhaust manifold

I was going to guess stuck caliper, but I also thought that this could be a great way to get free publicity. LoL

The ALL NEW is 2017, not 2016.

Although the truck was a total right off, we're told that the driver and passenger were able to escape the fire without injury.

Wouldn't that be WRITE off??


Hard to take any article seriously if they can't get facts and spelling/grammar correct in the smallest of articles.

Fire extinguisher just tossed on top of the pile of rubble (seems photoshopped). Something doesn't seem right here. How did the photographer get to take pics when the smoke started??

Well,....that is why they call them "prototypes."

Ford will find out what caused it and they will get it fixed. I like the comment that said if it was Chevrolet they would just "write it off and send it down the assembly line anyway!"
