Well im no truck guy but I’m impressed. If I didn’t already swap cars 2x in the last year I’d seriously considering trading the Volt in for this thing….500mile range on a tank is pretty good claim. Approx $25k starting price for the base trim in Canada.

I would be interested, 2000lb towing limit may be the issue.

Seen a new electric mustang yesterday, Was not impressed

What was it that you didn’t like? I don’t like the use of the mustang name on it and honestly I also don’t care for the styling but overall seems to be a half decent vehicle and I’m sure the looks will appeal to many. For marketing purposes even the use of the name makes sense.

Oh man I love the new Mustang (the name is stupid). Especially in the electric blue. What didn’t you like?

@Jayv theres a 4,000lb towing option package. I think it’s on the 2.0 Ecoboost motor.

Mustang looked the same for decades. It was time for a change, and some of the cues like the tail lights are still there.

Look at the different iterations of the Vette. It looks nothing like a Vette now, and the previous version looked nothing like a Vette then.

The same, Styling. Looks more like an SUV or maybe they are. I seen it driving i never got close.

This is the first I'm hearing of this one, thought the OP was asking a retrospective question about the car from the 70's.

IDK... seems ok I guess. Ford seems pretty proud of themselves for inventing the Honda Ridgeline

I would buy a first gen Ridgeline if it wasn't so damn ugly. I don't need a full size, something that can pull or load 5000lb is fine for me. The big trucks are overkill as a daily driver.

Funny you say that, My 05 Tundra is smaller then the new Tacoma.

I almost crapped myself when he announced the 4.5 foot bed like it was the best thing in the whole world. 6' with the tailgate down :eek: wow, think of the possibilities. /s Bikes are shown with the front wheels off and tailgate down. wtf, it's easier to put a bike in my wifes hyundai.

It looks good though. They made a lot of smart improvements that will work well for the vast majority of the mall crawlers.

So a hybrid Ranger with some marketing shenanigans going on? I like smaller trucks so I'm not against it per se. But this get 34 mpg hwy and the EcoBoost Ranger gets 30 mpg hwy. I guess it depends how much you're putting around town on battery.

I think its a home run.
I may trade my F150 for this, it is what a midsize should be.
It's significantly smaller than a full-size, much better fuel economy and somehow cheaper than a honda civic.
Smaller bed is the trade-off but has provisions for carrying full sheets of drywall/plywood. from experience, a motorcycle will fit.
real world fuel economy will be way better than the current mid-sizers, ex: ranger, GM twins
will ride much nicer due to unibody and independent suspension.

only questions marks for me is the fuel economy of the ecoboost+AWD and reliability.

When you said "bikes", I thought you meant motorcycles, not bicycles.

I hear you but not really the same, the vette didn’t get suddenly turned into a crossover utility vehicle.
