Will they finally put roll-down windows in the back of the SCREW?

That explains in part the higher tow-haul capacity.

They say it adds 350 lbs to the payload. plus they added 7 camara's plus a 360 degree one. They also came out with a new 5er hitch for it. Maybe Ford put a lot of whistles on it but still have not seen anything on the engine and power train. What was good that I thought of was the TST system to read the trailer also. B&B they had one with your name on it.

I read where they will go with the 6.7 but could not find HP or torque specs.
Transmission will likely remain the same.

I would like to see the apply some of the Eco Boost technology to their V-8 or v-10. But I suppose that might put too much competition on the diesel and they would miss out on those $'s.

I've owned three ford screws and all mine had roll down windows in the back? What are you referring too?

Glad to see I am not the only one waiting for this truck to hit the street. Keep listing any new info as you find it. Thanks to all who have chimed in.

Rumor has it, Ford is working on an Eco Boost V8 gasser.

If you want to see a video with the Ford engineers talking about the new truck go to tfltruck.
