Are they not already on the same platform? I thought the transit vans have the some tonnage ratings as you go from the smallest to the largest, so just assumed they were built on the same platform.

Ain't no fucking way they're merging the F-150 with anything. I'm sure they're R&Ding a variety of power plants and waiting to see how the Rivian does to determine whether to start seriously considering making an electric drivetrain option. Well, at least for their midsize pickup if they keep it around.

Otherwise, until battery technology can give a 6000 lb 8'x8'x22' cube a range of 400+ miles with sub five minute charging times, ICE's ain't leaving the F-series.

Don't give them ideas. Damn assault helmets. Only professionals need those.

But he's a big name that hit a relative unknown, even if it was a QB, so I expect him to get a slap on the wrist. I'm sure the Patriots are lining up to sign him too.

Don't you besmirch the Futura like that.

I know exactly how that naming convention went, having worked with marketing.

Marketing: "Well we found that customers are very fond of the name 'Mustang' and it carries a lot of prestige. In addition 'Mach' comes off as very sporty, more so than our 'ST' designations. And last we found that 'E' comes off as very environmentally friendly, which is highly prized these days."

Executive: "Great! Let's slap them all together!"

Marketing: "I'll start on the promotional material."

Also I wonder if this isn't part of their broader strategy to streamline their product line. Ax everything and combine things down to an electric crossover, larger SUV, and eventually combine the F-series and Transit into one tradesman vehicle.

Like....it'd be totally cool to have as a daily driver (especially with that stoplight-to-stoplight sub-4 second 0-60) if I was rich enough to have two vehicles at $100k total. But yeah, why they gotta do dat?

And again.......I agree. That's why I have 7.1 in my living room.

My biggest issue is that in most IMAX theaters I have to sneak in a flask of whiskey instead of getting table service.
I don't think speakers can go loud enough to snuff the sound of the common eater as they desperately try to show off how terrible their manners are.
