Probably waiting for Ford to release their numbers and then top them.
What they really need is for ME to select the gear the tranny is running in
Look, running empty, doing a gordon lightfoot, and the durn thing is winding away and refusing to shift
The engine has gobs of torque just off idle and I'm doing 35 on a suburban parkway with the engine around 1600 and refuses to shift, that engine should be able to push me along in 5th or 6th at 1200 rpm
Case in point was we moved a combine 90 miles. I ghosted along after it at 15 mph just running interference for traffic and I got a lousy 17mpg - I was fit to be tied becasue it refused to shift and let the engine run just barely off idle - no reason in this world I should not have been getting 30 mpg
When the trucks were suppose to debut in the spring, they were going to start building them in July. But they have backed it off. They are suppose to debut at the Texas State Fair.So Dmax Fan, your posting seems to be very detailed - any chance you can tell us where you got such detailed information because I'd like to follow up with the source. I want to find out when dealers will get their ordering package? Also if GM is first showing it in late September in Texas, how come they're starting to build in July? Are they going to store tens of thousands of them until after September?
