  1. My girlfriends nephew has a new Wrangler 4 door all tricked out and he was showing it off to me this weekend, when I told him I was looking forward to the new Bronco, he replied, "Me too...I really want a Ford."
  2. Sorry... I don't buy the "it was a gift and 10 weeks late.." no excuse for accepting a vehicle that had that many problems at time of delivery AND taking it anyway. YOU accepted delivery of the vehicle and now you want to complain?? Lincoln is at fault for letting it out of the factory, and the dealer is at fault for letting it roll over the curb, but YOU at fault for accepting it.
  3. Bring back Duraweave in the cool 70's colors too!!

    Goodbye Focus, hello Flex

    Well, going from a Focus to a Flex sure will be an adjustment...that Flex is like two of your Focus.

    New light & medium duty news

    That would be a great combo indeed for Class 7...but maybe with an Eaton transmission since Ford already uses it behind the big Turk motor. But, if there is to be an "outsider" supplier for transmissions (I think the 6R140 would handle it nicely) maybe an Allison transmission can be brought in. Make it a class exclusive for F750. Either 7.3L gasser with the Ford transmission, or the 9.0L Ecotorq / Allison (or Eaton) combo is the only diesel option in class 7 and vocational 8. The 6.7L Powerstroke can be available in all else up to F650.

    Wondering how many engine/trans options Hino has? It looks like the XL line (class 7/8) has a 8.9L (AO9) diesel that is built by them as is the Medium line engine (JO8E) 8.0L diesel...

    Meanwhile over at Hyundai-

    Makes no difference to me since I would never buy one...but, ok...bully for Hyundai.
  8. Don't get your panties in a bunch....not "poo-pooing" you...the fact that DoJ is demanding documents is laughable...
  9. The DoJ demands documents...in related news water is wet.
  10. What you suggest can be done to any of the Ecoboost motors, but I think I know why you prefer the 2.7L EB motor...

    Bronco R Prototype

    Well, since it is built on the North American T-6 Ranger chassis and Ranger production is in Michigan, you may be waiting a while for that announcement. Now, other members of the new "Bronco family" of vehicles? Guessing that it will be when the big hand hits the "L" and the little hand hits the "ater"....

    Since Hino is a part of Toyota, the last thing I would say about Hino is 'little ole" anything....

    Bronco R Prototype

    Oh, the purists will be upset that it doesn't have a solid front axle, until Jeep redesigns Wrangler and gives it a modern IFS setup too....
  14. OHAP is not limited to truck production, they built SUV's and mini-vans too. Mercury Villager (1993-2003) Nissan Quest (1993-2003) Ford Escape (2001-2005) Mercury Mariner (2005)

    ¿Bronco Getting An Aluminum Body?

    Making an optometrist appointment as we speak....whew...I looked at that a half a dozen times and didn't see that.

    ¿Bronco Getting An Aluminum Body?

    Only notation in the supplied attachment regarding Mustang is singular...unless i am missing it. ( I don't have access to the rest of the agreement, so not doubting your assessment) Also, Super Duty comes in 2 door and 4 door style but is listed singularly.

    ¿Bronco Getting An Aluminum Body?

    Interesting that it describes "Broncos" (plural) vs "Bronco" (singular) while listing all other product in singular term.
  20. Not doubting you, but I did not read that anywhere when the alliance was announced. I may have missed it.
  21. I believe Avon Lake will likely be the spot for a collaborative Ford/VW van or truck that will have EV capabilities...

    I am thinking something EV-ish that would bode well with the new VW alliance....Amazon delivery vans anyone???
