    Also, I'd prefer the rear seat fold into a bed.

    I think they said 7 KW. That's enough to run my house when PG&E gets nervous and cuts the grid in the summer.

    Have you driven either of them? I drove the GT500 on track last fall. At no time did I wish there was some other shifter mechanism. Sounds like you just like to complain.

    Well, other than the claimed extra 47HP, the regen will certainly extend the brake service interval.

    Yeah, that'd be cool. But at 6-2 I'd need to lie diagonally lol. What are you expecting in the new Super Duty? I saw that comment and just curious. I'm thinking about getting an electric F150 to add to my stable when they come out. Having owned plug in hybrid and full electric Fords, I'm sold on the technology.

    I can't get past the headlights... Too bad for fuel economy reasons because I'd love to see a retro body style like they did with the mustangs... 80-90's style

    Yeah, I gotta believe it will only fold while in Park. I totally agree about the convenience of the flat surface, that's a cool idea. They simply should have used column shift IMHO.

    It must be pure torture for your canine pal to sit there drooling uncontrollably while you eat a baconator, LOL. I hope he gets some pieces, or maybe his own baconator?????????????????

    Id have to imagine she'd gas me right out of the truck if she ate that. I usually throw her some of her treats and shes fine with that. Thankfully shes not much of a beggar

    Why not just use a column shifter? Console shifter trucks just don’t look right imo.

    I bet you can get one of the new ones to 80K with all those options. Just can't justify no matter how hard I try.

    What? Gayer than a foldable console shifter? I don’t think so. They literally made the problem of the console shifter and instead of just using a column shifter they have to double down on stupid and make it foldable.

    I'm impressed with the interior, the exterior will have to grow on me. Still looks better than the GM versions. Not sure what the big deal is with the 700 mile range with the Powerboost. It's nothing for me to get 700+ miles out of my 3.5 Eco. That's with the 36 gallon tank. Unless they are claiming 700 miles with the smaller tank (they don't mention)...... interesting.

    Spot on. The folding table top is a good idea, but the folding shift handle is dumb and adds complexity, when they simply coulda used column shift, which looks fine and works wonderfully. I'll be curious to keep track of this model truck and see what kinds of problems are caused by that shift handle. I can EASILY see something going wrong with that mechanism and some accidents happening.

    Can't wait for the shifter to never come back out of its hole.

    If I buy one, I will definitely check the box for the "Road Head Friendly" shifter!

    I drove from Northern Ma to Richmond Virginia on 1 tank in my 12 with the 5.0, that’s with the big tank, and before I tossed on the heavy 33s

    Best way to save a room in the console AND move to an electronic transfer case and transmission instead of column shift:

    I know every non-Ram owner dogs on it (and it took me exactly 2 days to get used to using it) but it's really a great solution.

    Im sure I'd get used to it but all I can think of is the meme about "when you're going down the highway @ 80mph, go to change the radio and end up in reverse"

    sooooo has anybody tried changing that gear selector while in motion? I would assume the electronic gizmos will override your decision

    Same as what happens on a console shifter... the computer ignores it.
