Very informative, thanks Steve, I'll be there.

I've been pestering the local dealer, asking about new engines for F150's. I will buy one...when and if Ford offers a more powerful V8.

But, the dealer won't say anything, prolly...because it could effect sales of the current lineup which still offer the anemic 5.4L.

I bought a new Lariat in 2004, soon discovered that the 5.4L couldn't pull "a sick trollop off a porcelain device."

You know you want one Keith...yours is almost 2 whole years old

Why don't you just show up and let us all test drive your '09 too? That way, maybe one of us will buy it and you'll be in the clear to get a new one


PS...please don't let your wife read this.

I'm definitly not buying, no matter how much SWMBO may beg, but I am very interested in the 6.2 experience. Also interested in the Ecoboost, but not in a truck.

It should be fun, if nothing else.

What date and time did they give you? They signed me up for 10 AM on Saturday the 13th (11/13/2010).

If all the SoCal chapter members are going on the same day, this could be a chapter GTG, which might fill up all the available spots.

btw: The dealers are also involved in this. The internet manager at Wondries Ford said they would also be attending on the 13th.

btw, part II. According to this month's Car & Drivel magazine, the 6.2L is a $3,000.00 (!) option for the Raptor (which they road tested). How much for the other F150's?
