Question What do you think of this

For those of you under the age of 20 I am interested in knowing what you think of this, and what significance you think this has? Just curious what the American youth think about this..........


Chinese car company designs Ford F-150 clone | Fox News

Thanks,
John

Glad someone agrees. This is clearly an infringement of US aptent laws. With all the money China gets from the US they better respect our patents....

Not thrilled about it... but I doubt it's a true "clone" they'll cheap out somewhere on it and it'll be a POS like everything else that comes from there.

They tried to reverse engineer Russian fighter planes too.

I couldn't agree more. This has the potential to kill Ford's superior reputation overseas.

Apparently this "truck" will be sold throughout South America, the EU, and rumors have it Canada as well. Something has got to be done.

People who buy trucks buy them, for the most part, to work them until they can run anymore. No foreign company has yet broken the code to bulletproof work trucks that can handle the everyday american workingman beating. And as mentioned above, these big honkerin v8's and diesels are there for us to do anything we desire. Even if Ford doesn't sue, it won't last in the American market. Just my 2 cents!

The only thing F150 about it is the headlights, grille, and tail lights.

The rest of it looks like a late 2000's Ram had sex with a Nissan Titan, and then developed an F150 front and rear when it hit puberty.
