I still say you ain't walking out the door for under 40k. I'll ask my friend Monday, he owns a few dealerships...Ford. I'm trying to buy another friends 2000 RT Dak and maybe trade my truck for a new one... not sure. But for 34 I might could buy one (Dodge) (luv my Mopar too much,lol), just know it ain't happening.
I have 0 interest in a 4wd as you can see what I drive. That's 4k right there. Don't have any friends at the dealers, consider all of them as my enemies grant that they know me well, and knows how to keep me to come back

I tell you what, lets bet this Tremor is gonna SMOKE BOTH the R/Ts I had and have
heres an eg. I don't think they can stuff all these options in a Tremor or can they?
That's there advertised price, buying 101 says that STILL negotiable.. LOL Im expecting the markup of the hype, Ill be waiting...patiently
http://waldorfford.com/Washington-DC...ruck/19221537/
I'm not arguing how fast they're going to be...I don't care. I'm not jealous of Ford dude, lol. Look...I gave you some reps even though ur talkin chit, (sort of, lol)! If you look at that video here, the big brother you're talking about doesn't seem to have all of the Tremer options that the one in this video has. Rims and tires are different...upgrade $$$, electric lockers...upgrade $$$, digital security door locks....upgrade $$$, pistol grip shifter could be another that this big brother would have to pay more for. And I'll say this again, I never ever said this truck couldn't hang or beat an RT. Why are you dissin me with this smoke an RT bull shit? I like Mopar and I'm trying to respect Ford here but ur making it hard... don't push it. I was joshing about betting...don't want to. But bottom line is, this Tremer price is going to be like upgrading from a 5.0 Mustang coupe to premium. Whats that price difference, 10k?

The video says they all come with electric lockers and 4.10's. This is it, there are no options other than 2 or 4 wheel drive...not bad but costly. Ford knows you guys want that RCSB EB and they're not going to give to you on a silver platter. They're going to tease you and get that money just like Chrysler SRT brand does.

Not dissin you whatsoever.. If any you're asking me to bet on something we have absolutely nothing concrete to bet on! Maybe I didn't use the right icons LOL
Regardless I know about the hyped prices...
One thing for sure the Raptor is their top dog. They can be had starting 44k. You think Ford is gonna coin these in to take sales from the Raptor??
Just a question my man, nothing to get excited about. BTW FX4 is a package and is an up charge.. Like pistol grip, console, e locker, multimedia, offroad wheels/tires/shocks etc etc etc
And as for the the mustang gt coupe/premium.. random 10k comment..I got my 13' mustang GT with just a brembo brake package/tech sync package/manual trans for 29k out the door..premium would've of been 34k out the door. edit! uncalled for

Well, when they come out with the 3.92 1500 then I'll get excited. Right now it's you Ford guys are the ones all excited, don't put that charge on me...I'm chillin. If this truck hurts anything it will be the full size EB or other truck brands. This video says this truck is built for speed, the Raptor is a bit heavy to be considered built for speed. I don't think Ford will have to worry about this thing competing with a truck built for something totally different. This truck is gonna sell solely for kicking 1/4 mile ass and towing if need be. In your opinion do you think the SRT 8 Core will hurt original SRT 8 sales....I doubt it. In fact I think it will help booster SRT sales. And I think this truck will help booster F-150 EB sales. Too much for me though, all of them are. I could barely afford my ST.

when I picked up the mustang, I also priced up the LXs and the Camaros (too heavy). 2nd choice would've been the LX...300C though. Would of been a fun people mover. Back to point though, This Tremor fits my bill as in capacity. I load and tow with my R/Ts..this Tremor will be able to do same comfortably. I've had this 13' R/T exactly 12 weeks, and logged in 11500 miles already. So I go thru trucks like a pair of shoes. The 10' R/T I had for only 30 months and logged in 90,000 miles. MGH (mike) changed the stock plugs at 70,000 miles and the only thing he saw wrong was the 1 and 2 cylinder was firing a little lean. That's with a cam/headers/cmr tune and over 150 passes at the track. I love my R/Ts don't get me wrong, and they have been durable...but I love looking for performance a lil bit more. Clueless on what the SRT Core is, need to look that up. Raptor can be had almost the same size as the Tremor, eg. garage sizes comes to play, some people only cares for that and of course the $. If they are priced close sales for the Raptor will suffer just due to the size, performance and towing is equal, fuel consumption is not..imho

Looks like a great move on Ford's part. The Ecoboost was only available in single cab longbed trucks and up. Anybody who hasn't driven an Ecoboost should.

And before anybody calls me a troll or anything, I had a 2008 and 2011 Ram 1500 as my company truck(s) for my old job. Not a bad truck, but I prefer the Fords. I don't have a hatred of any of the big 3. It just annoys me when people make uneducated and stupid remarks.
Wow, uneducated and stupid. Mature. I have driven an Ecoboost, My grandfather has a 2011 F150, and I don't much care for it. Class action lawsuits speak for themselves. They don't need me to tell them there have been problems with more than a few. MyFord Touch is an effen joke, my wife has it on her 2011 Edge and its more trouble than its worth. The difference in TQ of a whopping 13 ft lbs is negligible, however, 42 less HP is substantial. I am not a fan of Ford as they overcharge and understyle and their clientele typically have holier than thou attitudes. If someone wants to overpay for something that has a better chance of blowing up then most, more power to them.

this isn't me tooting my own horn here. it was partially a small attempt at humor with all this controversy, but it was ALSO meant as a reality check for ANYONE who continued to argue senselessly (is that a word?).

truly people can go on all day about what brand is better but enough is enough. If anyone wants to continue their arguments, take it up in the form of PM, because I am tired of seeing the name calling and bashing back and forth. I urge anyone who has a problem with this to pm me for further discussion.

let's take this back to a positive discussion, as this forum is known for. I hate seeing threads locked out.



and Yes, I quoted myself, pretty sweet haha

This video is evidence that we're not the only truck trying to be king of this hill. So we have to respect some of the 'others' (alien fan base, lol) on here, they're driving Rams too. EDIT: sry, I didn't see the other post.
