  1. I really like it in pics so far, I hope it's at least as good in person.
  2. That 2 door looks wrong, I can't believe the production model will have essentially NO rear overhang.

    Bloomberg News on Hackett

    Flu deaths in Washington State, for perspective See that? Several times more than the current media fixation, and more widespread...and, largely avoidable by the same means. I work in Seattle, and the quarantine center they're trying to put into Kent is essentially down the street from my apartment. This is a hyped-up mess of ridiculous proportions...but no, it's not "just ok that it kills old people". It's got a fraction of the awful stats that the flu has, but gets exponentially more press. Hygiene and common sense can go a long way toward containing this, much more than hoarding Charmin and Lysol will.
  4. The Ram's popularity also is partially due to its coil-spring rear suspension, which may not be as spec-sheet impressive as the typical leaf rear springs, but the Ram is supposedly better driving/riding than the F-series in everyday use. As much as the bigger screen will attract some plebian truck buyers, the driveability in no/light load situations is a bigger deal.
  5. Maybe because you're being an insulting twink about it? Cars/trucks have changed. The computers have elements defined by laws, look 'em up. Bitch at your representatives. Maybe, build a '78 Bronco with manual everything, throw out your computer and other devices, and subsist entirely on bacon and beans until your arteries give up the ghost...maybe that'll make you feel all manly and what-not. Meanwhile, the functional people can have a modern vehicle, and build a classic, and appreciate each for what they are.

    Fusion styled crossover?

    I tell ya what, if they nail the styling and the features, that could find a ton of homes out here in the Northwest. One of them could be mine.
  7. Thanks for your efforts, on behalf of some of us that geek out on sales numbers...!
  8. Many companies failed to give wagons much push, again with Subaru as the exception. When's the last Ford Flex commercial you saw? How many years back?

    New Ford 7.0 L....?

    That 7.3 swap makes for interesting thoughts...and I already figure that "enhanced" versions will be at SEMA, so I'm sure that Ford Racing will have some toys to free up some ponies. If they get headers and other basics figured out for popular applications, the new motor may be a real option for those that aren't all about supercharger whine.
  10. I didn't see if this was covered, but there are two lawsuits: one against Ford for the fumes and one against the department for making their officers use the known-to-be afflicted vehicles. This will be ugly.

    2021 F-150 Spotted

    (shaking head) To me, this whole pissing match on screen size is as bad as the cupholder fixation, 20 years ago.
  12. I promise that you're not the only one. I kinda wish the Flex had been named Fairlane, like the concept.
  13. Well, the Flex has been selling at or just above 2000 per month forever...and with basically NO promotion from FoMoCo. Throw in the Outbacks, the Buick thing, plus the rogue Benz/Volvo/etc models...200K may be possible. It's hard to think that there's not enough market for a capacious vehicle that's not carrying the extra weight of CUV bodywork....
  14. The roads here in the NW are thick with Subarus...but also Flexes, and Volvo wagons. As Ford as barely offered wagons beyond the Flex since the old Taurus/Sable wagon were killed over a decade ago...and the CMAX is fugly...that distorts the numbers, somewhat.
  15. I think it could handily outsell the Flex, as its boxy appearance is polarizing in this era of rolling melted soap bars. The trick would be actually staying with an ad campaign, something that did NOT happen with the Flex.
