  1. According to Tesla’s website, the bed length is 6.5 feet. Of course, they call it a vault because it’s lockable. So no, it’s not as big as the bed of any truck. Some - yes. Any - no. In my opinion, this is more of a Chevy Avalanche than a truck.

    Ford’s EV Truck Chassis

    Agreed. Enclosed trailers do create a lot of drag, even when empty.

    In your scenario, you would only be towing a heavy load on the return trip. So towing an empty trailer for 50 miles and a loaded trailer for 50 miles. A 100 mile towing range when loaded would be more than enough for that. This is just for the scenario you mentioned, but representative of towing situations when you’re picking up landscaping or building materials.
  4. The link above discusses two gas engines, but also includes this statement: A new and expanded line of responsive gas and Diesel engines. Someone made a mistake.
  5. The Fox Bodies didn’t have the C Scoop. The S197’s really had more of a hockey stick. It was more apparent on the 2005-2009 models. The picture above also has a hockey stick. What appears to be the top of the C Scoop is actually a full length body line. It does not connect to the hockey stick. When they added hips to the 2010 model, they basically removed the body line from the rear fender.

    Tesla pickup reveal Nov 21st

    I didn’t watch the video, but the picture I saw looked like a 2wd F150. A tug of war like that is all about traction The Tesla has much larger tires and is probably all wheel drive.
  7. I don’t consider 2030 to be right around the corner. However, that’s about the time I will probably be replacing my Mustang. Kept my 2005 Mustang 13 years. May only keep this one 12 years.

    Rivian/ Fully Charged interview

    With a projected towing capacity of 7,500 pounds, the Bollinger won’t compete very well as a Class 3 towing vehicle.
  10. Thanks. I thought I remembered something like that.
  11. Not to be argumentative, but are you sure? I thought the 6R140 was based on the 5 speed Torqueshift. I’m pretty sure the 5 speed was a Ford design.
  12. The 6R80 is. I thought the 6R’s used in the Superduties were a Ford design.
  13. Why does the thread title say “Hurricane/Boss”? That was the internal name for the 6.2. The 7.3 was called Godzilla.
  14. Agreed. I have the 2.3L Ecoboost in my Mustang. They could work on improving the sound. Otherwise, I have no complaints. I suspect the Explorer interior is quieter, so sound should be less of an issue. FYI: In the Mustang’s case, it seems that the active exhaust improves the sound considerably.

    news coming....

    If I remember correctly, the two speed trans in the Porsche is to get a higher top speed.
