Ford’s Going to Invest $2.5 Billion into New Engine and Transmission Plants in Mexico
As Ford continues to increase its 2015 F-150 production speed, it announces it’s going to pump $2.5 billion into its operations in Mexico.
I got excited when I laid eyes upon the truck you see above. I thought, “Oh yeah, Ram is taking on the Raptor!”
In the forums a question keeps appearing asking about the feasibility of swapping a later model transmission into an older truck. While it is possible, it sure isn’t practical. EVERYTHING is possible given enough time and money.
Ford “confirmed” they were working very hard on putting together a hybrid F-150. The Hybrid engine will most likely use a version of the 2.7L EcoBoost V6 engine and will likely return 19 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway.
Lightning, whether it’s the kind that bolts down from the clouds or the automotive type that Ford stopped building a decade ago, is fast. The type that brightens the sky can hit you in a split second. The Blue Oval variety doesn’t flash across the quarter-mile mark quite that quickly, but it’s still a force of nature.
