If it is not our generation my friend, the rest of them don’t have the buying power we did and still have if we really want.

If they would stuff any Hellcat engine in the concept pictured, and lighten it up? Could never make enough. That can’t take a boatload of engineering from what we have. Change materials etc.
They don't see things the way we do...

I have been waiting on the new 2024 F150
V8 s have not hit the lots here yet

Last year no V8 s at all

They just received a 2.7L F150 XL
2.7 ?
WTF

Lariat 85 to 90K

May need to go look at the 6.2L Chevy

You can get the Coyote 5.0 with the 10 speed in the F150. These trucks are stupid expensive.

My 2018 has the 5.0 L with the 10 speed
The tranny shifts 1 3 5 6 7 8 9 10
Skips 2 & 4 95 percent of the time
Not a fan
I d be happy with 5 or 6 speeds

The 2 lots I deal with
Neither seen a V8 F150 last year
Neither seen any this year either

They are being force fed BEV & V 6 shit

I believe very little about what comes out of Stelantis. Those guys screwed 3k workers out of a job. As exposed by Butter the Great, the Stelantis CEO pulled the plug on the Hemi platform. They did that cluster f!@k of a marketing extortion scheme for the last call marketing campaign. And with all of the crap coming out of the dealerships with markups and staw buying using locations, they showed they can't be trusted at all. So, as of now, I'll hold what I have and see if I can find an old Mopar. Stelantis is based out of France, the same country that is edging us towards a world war. that they can't finish.

The whole April fools thing is childish, or maybe it's just me that isn't enthused
I just don’t get it either…maybe I’m just getting old?

We have lots all around Metro Detroit LOADED with F150 sitting due to a “quality issue”. Lol. A Ford engineer who I rent storage space from said HE wouldn’t even buy one right now. When your CEO
(Farley) publicly says Ford has a quality issue that will take YEARS to fix, run away as fast as you can. After I broom my EcoBoost F150 there won’t be a Ford in my driveway, period.
Like I said about Stellantis applies to Ford: Fuck ‘em.

Ehhh I mean it depends on your usage tbh, even the jdm cars aren't as reliable as they used to be.

Manufacturers are learning parts = more money than cars, a lot of cheating imo.

To ford's credit we are now on our 3rd/4th f150's since 2016, two ecoboosts, a powerboost and now another powerboost in production. They have served us well so far with no major issues.

Now ford suvs/cars have been a nightmare, the explorer st more affectionately named the EXPLODER has had no shortage of issues, the latest was taking off on its own and causing a fender bender at a gas station. We will never buy a ford suv again period.

I'm in my 20s, this was funny about 15-20 years ago to me......

I'm not saying to take everything seriously but grown men and corporations yelling "April fools" is a bit of an annoyance, you would think people have more pressing issues to deal with.

After 25 years of F150 s
I am definitely on the fence between F150 5.0 & Silverado 6.2L

My 2018 5.0 is burning oil & sounds like a diesel at idle
WTF

I tried to keep the 2003 Lariat
It was just falling apart
Rockers were getting bad
Exhaust manifold both sides
Then 1 day it was dead
So off it went
