Correct, we were looking in the wrong direction, improving the base engine may be more important
than we imagine if they're going to fleet buyers who value fuel economy in a low cost crew cab.

Perhaps Ford has seen something in customer feedback that inspired this change, maybe it's as simple
as matching GM 4.3 AFM and getting a few more base model work truck sales...
