Too much truck unless you work at a construction site.

  1. Too much if you ask me. What the hell would you use it for?
     
  2. Re: Too much truck unless you work at a construction site.

    Long hauls with a trailer.

    No long haul will require THAT much truck............unless you're towing a semi trailer.

    The engine in here is not big enough to pull anymore than than what the 2003 F-350 is capable of. They have the same engine size but the production engine mounted to the TorqShift transmission will put out 40 ft lb of torque and 25 hp less than expected in this concept. It may look huge, but it really isn't as big as you may imagine. It is a visual effect.

    So if you had a stock 2003 F-350 w/duals and a 6.0L with a Torqshift transmission, what would you use it for? That is the answer for what this is truck is for.

    the crew cab wouldnt be the only version it would also come in extended cab and regular cab plus you could order it with single rear wheels but it is still a concept so who care until it is hear because it could still change a lot

    Yeah, very true that concepts are never identical to what is mass produced.

    What the hell?
    It's like people buying MclarenF1s. They don't need it either. They only need them to show off their wealth. Nothing more. Which McLarenF1 owner would actually go fast in their cars? They probably don't even take those million supercars out of the garages in a month.

    Here's the point. U don't have to need that car to own it. As long as u like it.

    This truck is more of a tool than a vehicle. Lost of the technology in today's Ford Superduty trucks came from here first. Some of it is in the current Superdutys, and some will be going into the 2005 Superdutys.

    ALL I THINK IS THIS CAR IS A SHOW OFF, A DODGE RAM DOESN'T LOOK AS HUGE NOR DOES IT LOOK AS POWERFUL YET I'LL KIK THIS TRUCKS ASS IN TERMS OFF PERFORMANCE AND TOWING ABILITY
     
  11. Do you know anything about trucks? Motor Trend tested a ford f-350, chevy 3500, and dodge 3500. the ford had the least torque yet it still wasted the other trucks in towing capabilities and is also one of the most luxurious trucks on the market, (magazine editors say stepping into the cab of an f-150 is like stepping into a mercedes or bmw. motor trend also said that the cummins in the dodge is very noisy and ruff around the edges. the tonka has more torque than the others, and yet you think it will lose to the dodge? get your facts straight and think again.
