    New light & medium duty news

    As well as huge numbers going to Amazon?-of Rams that is. I know others have posted they have seen Transits in Prime colors but at least around here the fleet appears to be 100% Dodge/Fiat/ Ram/Stellantis-pick a name😎

    Ford Stock Inventory Reframing Launch

    Joey, Looks to me like they are forgetting about the "work truck" segment. I'm not talking about "fleet", I'm talking about the tradesman who all of a sudden needs a new truck-but wants a little creature comfort and doesn't want an XL -and doesn't need a 250. 2 regular cab 150's offered and none are 4 x 4. And what about Super Cabs? Minimal choices there. Yeah I know..they have all the sales data. But do they consider what the competition has on lots?

    It looks like it has a clutch pedal too. Apparently the slushbox wave has not reached China yet?😎

    2022 150 Build Your Own

    Well guys as I said when I started this thread. They are spending money advertising.."build your own"! New business model huh? Mr Farley thinks its the new wave? But the dumb asses don't upgrade their own system to handle it. As a stock holder I say WTF!
  5. So thinking about a new 150. Go to ""build your own" thread..as Ford at least here in New England advertises.."get just what you want and order your own"...and you get 2021 info. Brilliant! What's up with that???
  6. Handsome! And look at those performance numbers!! A home run for sure.

    The new 6.8 V8 thread

    Correction- I"M emphasizing what I believe its primary purpose was...medium duty trucks. the gearheads all saw potential to challenge the BBC.

    The new 6.8 V8 thread

    JP-Totally understand Bob Wolf's role and have watched many of his videos as they tweak the 7.3-emphasizing again what I believe its PRIMARY mission was. In any case, sure is nice that it can.."hit from both sides of the plate". I'm disappointed now however as my local dealer says an air brake option for it has been canceled for 750-something to do with underhood air temps-sounds like a bullshit excuse to me.

    The new 6.8 V8 thread

    Amen! The 7.3 was developed as a medium duty truck engine-at least according to the chief engineer Mr Beltramo (sp?). And as an old truck guy my reaction was .."terrific"- puts out numbers that were equal to the old 477 Super Duty-and there were thosands of those running in trucks over 50,000 gvw over the years. It represents (IMO) a great cost savings for the operator who needs GVW and power but doesn't have the annual utilization to justify a diesel's premium. But what very quickly happened? Bob Wolf and others saw all sorts of potential in the 7.3 for the performance market and we were "off to the races"-pun intended. And at this point it has no competition in the medium duty market. And Teamster Grrl, as for electrification in medium duty, I'm sure that will make sense in many applications. But in due time-and also not at my expense in terms of subsidies.

    New light & medium duty news

    thx JP- No Chevy stats for 4,5,6? Would be interesting to see how they plus International match up against Ford By the way back to the F-600 vs 650 question a reliable source told me 600 isn't eating 650 sales, it is eating into 550. The added gvw gives bucket operators the ability to mount a longer stick assembly.

    From what I see around here the Prime vans are all Rams.
