Everybody it seems wants a custom Toyota Tundra including mixed-martial artist and former UFC fighter Jon Fitch. His lifted and color-matched truck is pretty sweet.
Last week, I wrote a quick post about the EcoBoost’s quality perception problem with Ford owners titled “EcoBoost Losing Steam with Ford Loyalists.” I talked about some EcoBoost forum comments left by (presumably) Ford truck owners that were less than positive, and concluded that Ford might have a perception problem with their EcoBoost engine family among their loyal customers.
I was (rightly) called out by one of our frequent commenters for that article, as it wasn’t heavy on data. While it wasn’t as if the conclusion I offered was relying exclusively upon comments on some forum (it wasn’t), it certainly did seem that way. SO, I invested $100 in a Google Survey and asked 200 self-identified F150 owners the following question: Do You Think The Ford EcoBoost V6 Is A Reliable Engine?
In what may be surprising to some (but not me), 70% of Ford F150 owners answered either “No” or “Maybe, I’m Not Sure.”
The recent surge in full-size trucks has been a huge part of the economic recovery and increased profitably of automakers. Yet, could the boom lead to long-term quality issues? Ford thinks so.
UPDATE: With the 2013 SEMA show coming in just a few short weeks, we thought we would rerun some of posts showing the cool trucks that have been there over the years. This year’s show runs from Nov. 5-8.
2 Crave is an aftermarket wheels company that made a splash at this year’s SEMA show thanks in part to the spectacular looking 2010 Toyota Tundra that took up some serious room in its display area. 2 Crave offers a full line of high end rims for a startling number of automobiles, but its has also branched out to offer wheels to the off-road crowd and this was the theme behind the 2 Crave SEMA Tundra.
