2008 Super Duty pickups exceed Fordís expectations

http://www.egmcartech.com/2007/06/04...-expectations/

Looks like they got the competition beat with this new redesigned 08 model. There will be a lot of 6.4L's on the road. :Thumbup:

Just today alone I saw at least 8 of them here in my city. They definitely seem to be doing well. I talked to one owner, and he said that he really enjoys his truck.

Go Greyhound, and leave your luggage with us. *maybe not intentionally*

Most of the ones I have seen were Lariats, FX4's...not many XLT's in the ones I saw..people are getting them fully loaded...which is a good thing.

Most dealers here stock the loaded ones because they know they can sell them and make more money. I bought 2 F-150's last week and looked at the SD's, and all they had in stock was King Ranches and Lariats. $63K on the King mg I'll probably have to order an XLT.

I have not seen that many on the road yet but my dealer only seems to have loaded or striped ones in stock. I did see a very nice 550 flatbed at the river last weekend. I have to say the truck as a whole is growing on me but I still like my front end better. I realy hope this truck helps pull Ford out of the hole and see a profit soon.
