No More F-100 sadly... But its alter. is awesome

Ford will not make the rumored F-100 it has taken all of its engineers and made a sweet truck. This truck will out do any competitors. The F-150 SVT Raptor. It will be sold in 2010 and in 2011 will be offered with a 6.2L V-8.

It's a nice truck, but I think Ford made the wrong choice.

If you check the 2009 F150 forum, you will find a long thread on this truck. This unit will NOT replace the F100, Ranger, or any small line truck. Ford keeps saying no to the F100... I dont believe them. Doesn't seems FTE believes them either, since this particular forum exists...

Agreed! The Raptor is great and all, but someone is making a bad choice. The F-100 or a larger Ranger is what's needed with the ability to build a new Bronco to boot.

The 6.2L engine should bleed it's way into the fullsize truck segment anyway. The SD needs a larger gas V-8 and the F-150 needs to be more competetive in terms of HP/TQ.

Is anyone at Ford listening to us?

What good is a Raptor if you don't go 4 wheelin in the desert or mud boggin where you would need a 4x4.

Seems Ford keeps making the same mi9stakes over and over. They come up with a vehicle that is a Hit and pull the plug after a limited run Like they did with the Lightning.

I do not believe Ford will come out with a F100 for any reason because most likely it might outsell the F150. The Big Idiot car makers hasn't learned that people want choices and they still won't give that to the consumers and they still have not figured out they are overpriced.

The Raptor lives, because there is a demand for niche performance products. This is the other end of the spectrum, compared to the Lightning. I would be willing to bet its a limited run like the Lightning too.

The Lightning was not really limited. 1999-2004. A six year production run for an SVT vehicle is pretty long. Plus a 3 year run for gen 1 Lightnings.

Yes, 4000-6000 per year. I'm sure they would have stepped up production had the market demanded it. Peak demand was in 2001 with 6,381 units produced.

Plus, the Harley Davidson F150, which was in many ways a 4 door version, I believe production numbers for it were between 7,500 and 10,000 yearly. Its higher level of success is probably why they made them for the next gen truck as well.

I believe the Raptor 6.2L is simply a way to get some "buzz" going about the engine, while bugs are worked out (sadly) until full production runs are ready. Its also a good way to test the waters, to see what 6.2L demand will be before committing more resources.

Or, they may have wanted to get the engine out ASAP but the engines are currently "hand built" until full automation of the process comes online, and a high dollar truck is the only way they can produce a hand assembled engine.

Just my hunches.... the future will prove me right or wrong!

I have seen an article somewhere about the F100. It is going to be a unibody small truck about the size of the Explorer Sport-Trac. No more body over frame.

believe it or not but there will not be an f-100 in 2010 or 2020, my father is a ford engineer and the product line has no F-100. I wanted an F-100 just as bad as the rest of you guys but ford dropped all production. There is only the Raptor svt, the super duty which has a design change, and the foriegn truck imported to take the Rangers place.

That's sad. The proof will be in the pudding so to say. Look at how many Dakota's are on the road and the larger Tacoma as well. The roads are full of them. Likewise that means no Bronco. They'll pour millions into the limited Raptor when they could earn millions on something that someone could actually use.

I wouldn't get the F-100 anyway, I'm getting a SD in late 2010 early 2011, fuel prices permitting of course. With that said, I may end up with a Focus or Fiesta and getting another 5 years out of my '88.

Why don't they bring back the Ranchero?

I thought that it was common knowledge that the F100 was not going to be put out by Ford for atleast the last 1 1/2 to 2 years now. Thats atleast as long as it has been on the Ranger Forums anyway.
