Re: 2017 Ford Super Duty debuts

I am not a transmission guy, but constant gear changing under a heavy towing load, seems less rugged to me.

Honestly, there is soooo much torque here, you really don't need to multiply it so often. 6 shifts for a vehicle that is driven at lower speeds, seems OK.

No, not initially at least. It's coming with the current 6-speed auto except the 6.2 gets and upgraded version of the 6-speed found in the F-150.

Re: 2017 Ford Super Duty debuts

Not sure if I like it or not. Will have to see it in person, as always, I guess.

That chrome grill ... is just ... almost too bold, if that makes sense. I love chrome, but.... *shrugs*
