I am definitely planning on buying an ev -f150 platinum to replace my 5.0 powered f150. None of the current EVs meet my needs. As long as the price is right. I’ll be buying one. It also needs to have the fx4 off road package. I don’t want stupid aero crap that will impact the usability of the truck.

The fx4 of that generation had 5 different interior options. Cloth seats , low level leather manual seats, high level leather (touch screen , Sony audio heated and cooled seats, power seats) then alcantara with red trim both in the higher and lower trims. They also had a stand alone off road package that was Read more

A Camry is a sedan and I’m not saying f150s are cheaper to run. I was simply arguing that the handling of the trucks is now close to your average sedan. Is it going to put corner a GTI or an M3 ? no it’s a truck but they have made it so the trucks can drive like an average sedan. When resale value is factored in as Read more

As someone who has a Raptor. That SOB is wide. The airport parking garage ticket machines are fun and because the cab is normal size half the time I have to unbuckle and lean out the window to get the ticket depending on which garage I’m using. It’s curbed all 4 tires at the same time going through a gate at an air Read more

And a Ford Edge ST can do .88g it’s also worth noting that the Altima is the best handling sedan right now having beaten a 3 series with the Msport package. I also compared a 4x4 luxury pickup that matches sedans and some hatch backs in handling performance. Compared to the trucks and SUVs of just 20 years ago the Read more

If Ford can get a crew cab 4x4 f-150 to handle better than some of their sedans you are not giving up much in performance or handling by switching.

I just binge watched the winter series in one day last week it’s pretty phenomenal. Even one of my friends who stopped over and doesn’t like cars or racing loved the drama aspect of the series.

Yup been paid off for 1/2 a decade and just a smidge under 160k on it. Had it’s share of trail damage. But still an absolute blast to drive.

I agree my 5.4l Raptor is adiquate off road in the power department keeps up with the higher out put Raptor’s off road. The street not so much. I do plan on up grading to a +19 to get the live shocks and some of the upgrades off-road tech but really have never thought while off road that I need more power. On the Read more

I think I could have worded my initial post better. I agree with you on what pilots are supposed to do and the cause of the accident. (My dad has been flying all generations of the 737 since 1990 loved the MAX and thinks this whole thing is over blown by the media.) my point is that if trained pilots have problems Read more

Aircraft are easier to autome as the encounter fewer things in their environment. Air craft have transponders  and TCAS they are already required to maintain separation distances measured in miles. There are 2 highly trained pilots who’s job is to operate the aircraft and its systems and take over if anything fails. A Read more

That’s what I wonder about as well. In the wake of the MAX crashes due to a glitch in a sensor how likely will it be that automated vehicles that are much cheaper to have similar failures and glitches that cause crashes and fatalities.

4th gear I think the fear is warranted. If Airbus and Boeing cannot get the automation to work properly when a sensor fails successfully hand off the aircraft to pilots that are trained to do just that in +$100,000,000 jet liners resulting in hundreds of deaths. What is a sensor failing or becoming defective in a Read more

I agree many people do not look at the earning potential of a particular degree or course of study. I had my undergrad paid for by the military and a garenteed job when I graduated so I majored in something interesting to me, got a job in logistics and used that experience to further my career. I left the service then Read more

I responded that the Read more

That might be his best way to not go underwater as Raptor’s have an crazy high resale value. It’s not like he rolled it into an escape or something that’s going to depreciate like a rock.
