I think the 2.7L take rate will be higher than 15%...but I think it will mostly steal from 3.5L EB sales. Right now my understanding is that the 3.5L is the best selling engine for this 2011-2014 gen...

Regarding the 2.7L, it is an interesting motor. I'm intrigued it is built out of CGI vs. the aluminum of the 3.5L. CGI is very durable. It also appears to have some better turbo tech vs the 3.5L. If...

I believe Ford has sworn the press to silence regarding fuel economy until official numbers are released in November by the EPA. Some press folks like Jalopnik have said the "best" they could get...

Ford has done a tremendous job with the Ecoboost engines...both in marketing and in performance. This new 2.7L EB has gotten very good reviews for its power and torque, and of course so has the 3.5L....

Not going to take away from the V10, but the 6.2L was designed for high RPMs from the start. I see no reason to believe it can't achieve very high mileage. What would fail from running at higher...

At 90mph on the interstate my 2012 Super Duty is perfectly stable and feels fine. This is even a New England interstate with hills and curves, and double fall lines. Its no Ferrari, but for what it...

The only reason I can think of as to why the dually does not get brake-based traction control or the rear locker option is that the axle half-shafts or differential internals are not strong enough....

Yes you can, but on full-lock turns you are actually causing increased wear on your front axle u-joints. Do a little test...lock the front hubs, stay in 2WD, and drive in a full-lock circle at very...

Skip, that underside looks really nice and clean. My question: do the AK road crews throw down massive amounts of salt? Have you had your Excursion ever undercoated?
