  1. What'll be funny is if the 2.7L has more HP and torque than the V8 in the Jeep.

    XL comes with manual fold and telescoping mirrors. Power ones are N/A in XL. Not sure what’s up with trailer brake controller but I thought it was standard. That would be why it’s not mentioned as an option. TPMS and trailer camera I don’t think are available in XL either. Sounds like you’re more concerned with availability of options on trim level and not gas vs. diesel.

    Wait, the F-600 isn't available with the PowerStroke? That seems odd.

    That's to be expected, right? I mean, the PowerStroke does have 120% more torque than the gasser. Considering the 7.3 tows 60% of the weight while having only 45% of the torque says a lot about the gasser.

    Just get the F350. Then the trailer tow packages aren't available because it comes standard. The heavy tow package comes with upgraded axles in the F250 to bring it more in line with the F350's capabilities.

    F150 reveal set for 6/25

    I guess I should have specified modern-day automatic pickup truck without a column shift. OK, it's time for a little edumacating for me. I need more details on these trucks.

    CarPlay problems

    Just a thought, you have to unlock your phone for it to pick up CarPlay. I thought mine wasn't working the other day, hard-rebooted Sync, still nothing. The next time I plugged it in I noticed it said 'you must unlock your iPhone to use accessories.' Once I unlocked it, CarPlay picked up just like normal. May not be it, but thought I'd mention it.

    FYI, the first Ford truck without a column shift was the 2004 F150. I thought I wanted the console shift. But the flexibility of having 4 cup holders lots of room in the console cured me of that.

    I made the same comment to my wife about the generator and being able to use it when we stop for lunch. However, I'm sure it's going to be a costly option for something that would get used very little for RV's. You aren't going to want to sit there and let your truck idle for hours at a time while boon docking. Rest stops? Sure. Long-term use? Not likely. Now, if I could use it while running down the road to power my A/C and keep the RV cool for said rest stops? Now we're talking!
  11. Likely very minimal. The 2020 was a significant refresh with the Gen3 PowerStroke, 7.3L gasser, and 10 speed transmission along with updated looks front and rear. Don't expect anything really new until 2023 model year.
  12. Mine had the original tranny when I traded it with 160k on the clock. It was, however, in need of it's 5th engine. I replaced the original engine with one out of a wrecked Ranger at 120k. That engine cracked the heads and was drinking coolant with <100k on it, so I replaced it with a reman. It cracked the heads (at the same place it was welded to fix it as part of the reman) inside the 12 month warranty, so it was replaced under warranty (thankfully my future father-in-law was a mechanic and didn't charge my poor college ass any labor to swap them). When I traded it in, that second reman was leaking coolant again. Ugh. It was gutless, but good in the snow. It was my first vehicle, so I still miss it.
  13. Ahhh, I miss my Bronco II, the little POS.
