F-600 will do very well and for sure will take a lot of 650 sales-can't imagine "bed bug haulers" like U-haul paying a premium for 650 when the gvw of a 600 will suffice for the target GVW. Another advantage the- " non truck driver" clientele will be a lot more comfortable in a 600.
But there will still be a need for a 26,000 gvw. for a lot of applications- like contractor dumps where a customer wants 5/6 yd body as well as ability to pull (and stop!) a tag trailer carrying a mini excavator or skid steer or a large chipper.
And I think the 7.3 will be a homerun once it gets air brakes in 750 at 33,000 lb GVW. The old LN-8000/800 was a very popular single axle dump back in its day with its 429, 3208 Cat or 7.8 Ford diesels. The 7.3-in spite of some who say .."not enough power" ..has as much as the old 401 and even the 477 Super duty and when you look at the up front cost advantage, unless a guy is running high annual miles or towing at the max, that motor will do well.
As for class 8, I don't think we will ever see a "large car" sleeper from Ford again, but I think it is a mistake not to put a tandem on the 750. There are plenty of operators who need the GVW and again, use the truck as a "conveyance"-like it has a Vactor with its own big bore diesel and just sits all day moving around a job site. Or is a delivery vehicle that does not run high mileage. It would not take much for Ford to do that and it would open up a lot more sales opportunities IMO. Needless to say, A Duratorque from Turkey as well as an Allison would make the truck a lot more attractive as well.
This is a Ford Board -I would expect any accolades for Hyundai to be "brushed off". Again-my previous post has shown sales numbers are about even for the Palisades/Telluride. So the grill (on the Palisades) appears to be a non-issue.
BTW-many reviewers have stated the interior of the Palisades is a nice place to be.
I have a 2017 Lincoln Continental and wanting to upgrade the subwoofers in the car with JL Audio sub/amp, however the ANC Mic's have pretended me from doing so.
Does any one know how to disable this feature, I want to avoid ripping out the headliner and unplugging the microphones.
I should've bought more when it was so low, but I was already losing at that point and didn't want to put more in at the time. Coulda shoulda woulda. On the bright side, the stock I did buy is finally above what I bought it at around $6.50.
I know the article says wagoneer, but it looks like the long wheelbase model, which is confirmed the grand wagoneer. Some interior shots shows the cowl and upper portion of the dash.
