I don't really think you can buy a "bad" truck anymore. All of them will last if you take proper care of them. You can buy more powerful trucks, more comfy, more capable...etc. Nissan just has the best balance of what I want in a truck.yamatitan said:actually the lack of HP is the only reason i did not buy another ford. My old one was really reliable but i just could not stand getting beat by everything i raced anymore. lol
Its going to get new engines,or at least larger displacements that should put it in the minimum 360+ HP range.HudsonValleyTitan said:.that ugly front end and lack of HP is gonna kill it!
The "BOSS" name is as much as a marketing scheme than anything, like the "HEMI". Just a badge to sell more trucks.orangepeel said:Its going to get new engines,or at least larger displacements that should put it in the minimum 360+ HP range.
Below is a piece of the article from where the pictures came from:
"Power for the new F-150 is expected to come from either Ford's new 5.8L or 6.2L BOSS V8. It still remains a possibility that Ford will offer both engines.Ford is obviously eager to get these pickups to market, to battle the new Toyota Tundra and the redesigned trucks from GM."
I've had a few Fords in my day and can't say I've had a complaint about any of them...that I can remember...lol. I can say though that we've owned 2 Nissan Quests that were buy Ford with Nissan drivetrains, and we now have an 05 Quest...built solely by Nissan. Guess which one has been the headache? Yep....the 05...which started as an 04, then Nissan replaced it with another 04 because it was so problematic. Nissan then replaced it a SECOND time...by this time the 05s were out so we got an 05. This one has been fine...thank goodness.wmshay6 said:I've owned 4 fords- one truck, one van, two cars. All, hands down, junk.
I've also owned 4 nissans, with the exception of the Quest (built cooperatively with- you guessed it- FORD) all of the Nissans have been great vehicles. And even the quest Driveline was fine. It was the Ford electrics that were crap.
My experience with FORD is that it is Junk plain and simple. I don't care how pretty they make it, it's still lipstick on a pig. Wouldn't buy one with MY money.
