    Why Isn't Ford.com current for 2022?

    I have been waiting for the A/Z plan pricing to come online before ordering my 2022 F150. I can't wait much longer !

    How Big is This Lug Nut Problem?

    This is not a new or Ford unique problem. I fist ran into it on Pontiacs in the late 1970s !

    7.3 vs 6.7 1/4 mile winner

    The 7.3L was designed for durability, fuel economy (over the V10) and low manufacturing cost.

    Maintenance Plan for F350D

    Regarding ANY extended warranty, read carefully what is NOT covered ! Ask questions, like an oil line breaks and the engine explodes is it still covered ?

    Bring back the Excursion with 7.3L

    You can get 8 in an Expedition but 4 of them need to be under 12.

    Bring back the Excursion with 7.3L

    People who would buy it want it to tow large trailers long distances.

    How Green is using Hydrogen?

    2 issues How was H2 created ? Storing it requires refrigeration.

    Bring back the Excursion with 7.3L

    Never going to happen ! Part of the reason the original got canceled was Bill Ford got a lot of personal bad press from the Sierra Club and other "green" organizations for building such a gas guzzling monster.

    The new 6.8 V8 thread

    Properly engineered iron blocks today are much lighter than they were 30+ years ago. Some of the cast iron exhaust manifolds look like "shorty" tube headers !

    The new 6.8 V8 thread

    Sounds about right ! I still think it is odd that the E-Series has a de-tuned version. 6.8L would be a great base engine for a F250 and a low cost replacement for the Coyote in the F150.

    The new 6.8 V8 thread

    Not sure how accurate this is, but the last I heard Ford does not own ANY casting facilities in the US, Canada, Mexico, South America or Western Europe.
