However, the arrogance of Ford asking that much for such an anemic dog is beyond belief.
I hope Ford really learns two lessons from this 1. they enjoy having another Edsel on their hands and 2. that the consumer is actually a wee bit smarter than they actually gave them credit for.
Good Luck Ford with your Fiero-150
Another Edsel popped into my mind also!!

Most diesel buyers will want a truck they can work and not so much about interior amenities....Ford can save this boondoggle by quickly getting it into the lower trim levels but it will have to leave the dealers lot at 35-38k, maybe 40 tops, afterall, 2500/F-250 series trucks are out there all day long for the low 40's. However, if that far less than capable 3.0 engine starts giving trouble it will be an Fiero-150, an Edsel....toast to the consumer
Im glad I dont have any Ford stock, LOL they tried to pull a fast one here....some flawed logic in that corporation somewhere... LOL 65-70k for dog.

Maybe where you live that's the case. Here pretty much every new diesel is top trim level even as a work truck.

Rationalize that dog any way you want too...its your money... go drop 65-70 k on it and feel real proud of it...but most folks who actually use a truck other than a ego soother or a pimped out town car grocery getter will know better... please keep in mind that the definition of affluence is:" Trying to impress people you dont like with money you dont have", lol regardless of where you live....LOL as I suspected the 3.0 Fiero-150 at 70k is maybe useful after all...as simply as tool to overcompensate with
