These don't need to even be idling to rule. Good link!!
Though, I was thinking the one I saw was maybe an extended cab or even a single cab...it did not have 4 doors IIRC.
I like this one
Looks like the hood tips forward,that's how all the pickups should work.
If Gm lost their med truck market because they took the bailout why didn't dodge ? It's been my understanding that Gm has been wanting to get out of the med truck market for awhile.
The bailout had nothing to do with GM's departure from the MDT market. As I said before, GM lost money on every 4500-8500 truck they sold. They tried to sell the Kodiak-Top-Kick line to both Navistar and Isuzu, but the deal fell through.
IMO this will likely be the kiss of death for the 650/750. It's already a pretty raw deal if you buy one, unless you have a nearby dealer who's versed in the heavy trucks, service is a pain. Their cabs suck in comparison to pretty much everybody else on the market, and their build quality is pretty marginal. Price is good though, which I think helps them sell, but with a power stroke under the hood I just can't see many buyers jumping at that opportunity.
I have a 750 and I'm very happy with it. A lot of companies don't see the need to shell out the $$$ for a pete or KW but need the capacity. The fact that this new truck will be US made instead of blue-diamond (mexico) is a big+
that said I can't wrap my head around the power train choice. the cummins was the choice.
Ford wants to keep it all in house. With the power stroke under the hood they are going to allow any ford dealer to service the truck not just the medium and heavy duty techs who are cummins trained. That's what the dealer at the shown told me.
I think it's a bad move myself. Can't beat a cummins and a Allison.
