I hope so... Hopefully Ford will reveal all the numbers as everyone else has so nothing to hide.. With nothing updated on the interior I hope the Hp/Tq numbers are impressive..

I've already seen the parts breakdown video on the Ram/GM engines on what's improved over the previous year,not sure why Ford is waiting so long to brag about there improvements also.

From this video (Mr. Truck) at about the 11:00 minute mark, Mike from Ford talks about ride height and it "seems to me" like he is referring to the Super Duties in general are getting lowered. Or maybe I'm just not understanding correctly (not the first time that has happened to me). Not that it is that big of a deal, it will make it easier to get in and out.

I just watched the same video. It appears all single rear wheel trucks are 1.5 lower in the rear and .5 lower in the front. Dual rear wheels are 1 inch lower in the rear. Definitely not just f250’s.

I think they have gotten a lot of flack about the trucks being too high . . .

In TFL trucks video, the ford rep says “some of the trucks” and Andre asks, “do you are lowering just the 250s” and the rep says “yes, the 250 only” the. Goes on to talk about the specs.

I saw and heard the same thing. I like tall trucks but in the end, this goes to show, we can't believe anyone until the specs come out.

Yep that's what I heard also at around the 6:00 minute mark in the video the Ford engineer says only the F250 gets lowered.

At the 6:00 minute mark in the TFL video the discussion is about the SRW trucks no mention of DRW in case you missed that fact.

It will be interesting to see how they lowered the trucks...a smaller block in the back would be easy, not sure about the front.

So we have conflicting reports from ford. The Mr truck video the ford rep says all single rear get 1.5” lowered in back, on the video in this threads op, the ford rep says only f250’s get about an inch. No mention of the already 2 plus inches lower Dually.

Didn’t miss anything. I clearly said “Mr. Truck” video. Same engineer in both. Guess you missed that fact.....
