Yeah... employees can’t just go around leaking company secrets. But that’s how Magazine X and others get the secrets and prototype codes...
Naw. Compare Mirai to new Toyota Crown.
I know you like your Toyotas so I’ll tell you a secret. About 50% of the information in the instagram post are wrong. And 30% is only partially correct. But the leaked presentation image...
Get this, the previous gen ecoboost Navigator used the Expedition’s certification without an actual test but the Navigator had a much looser torque converter. You know, it’s the same thing. Ford is good at equivalencies.
All of F150 fuel economy ratings are on 3.15 or 3.31 diff but their highest sales volume is 3.55 diff. Everyone does it.
So you’re telling me the Sport trim with max tow package can tow 7650 lbs up Davis with a 150 lbs driver and their 288 lbs of stuff at 42 mph. Got it.
There are a lot of mountains in America. Plus I’ve towed with F150 Ecoboost a lot; tows way better than all the NA V8s.
Try towing in Colorado buddy

Man, fuck that guy.
And 100 lbf-ft and 4 more gears.
They made a mistake in their test method for road load so when they certified the fuel economy, they used a low road load resulting in better fuel economy. It’s not like they randomly decide to add 10% to their result. Also real world fuel economy is completely dependent on driver, location, and environmental… Read more
Go drive a Range Rover with the 3.0L diesel. It’s the same engine. It feels much quicker than the 3.3L NA V6. F150 4x2 weighs about the same as a Range Rover and the overall gearing is about the same for the 8-speed and 10-speed. It’s definitely slower than 2.7L V6 though.
I live in Japan now and I haven’t owned a Subaru in over 3 years! R32s were too expensive and diesel is about 20% cheaper than regular fuel (35% cheaper than premium!!). I like the look of the Prado better than other 70s and also the 3-link/coil setup is nice enough.
I bought a KZJ78 that’s coming to USA
1-2 inches smaller in every dimension... but basically exactly the same
That’s not how octane works.
From a cost/mile point of view it’s probably the same. The VD engine is not that efficient.
Price is low probably because these breakdown a lot. Tesla powertrain wasn’t so robust in this era
