    cliffsnotes: truck is heavier and more expensive than before, but very very very good. It owns every other fullsize. Article also touches on impending competition from nissan. Also they note that ford is only building fully-optioned models right now and won't start making base model trucks til next year. Until then, you'll have to get an 03.

    That interior just doesn't look right to me :wtc:

    F-150s are supposed to have horribly ugly and uncomfortable interiors with vinyl bench seats and no carpet :sad2: :o

    It's supposed to be heavier so it can be written off of people's taxes, which equals even more sales.

    Go Ford. :big grin:

    I think the new F-150 is the most expensive redesign Ford has ever done to any vehicle in their history.

    It shows!

    i'm not a big ford fan (actually a nissan nazi), but that truck looks much improved from previous models... inside and out....

    it got so cheap recently, I really couldn't pass it up, the old F150 owned this market, I can't imagine what the new one will do ;)

    It's still a fairly stagnant stock like the other two big American auto companies.

    I have a feeling it will go up little by little if they can hit the black again with this truck, the next Mustang, more cool Mazdas, and the Taurus replacement come online.

    I liked my GMC over the fords of the time (2002)...

    i grew up in a chevy family (my uncle used to race pro stock, held several national records and was given 2 of the first 50 Camaro's off of the line to build pro-stock cars from) and still like the new fords.

    how long till a regular cab is avaiable (without lightning package) and what will pricing be on them?

    There are no plans for a 2 door truck apart from a lightning right now :eek3:

    All of them will have the little baby doors at the very least :eek3:
