I have been eyeing the 4runner too, but like many said, I just can't convince myself to spend the money on a car that's so old in design and technology.
Yes, it is true that the drivetrain has been bulletproof and that certainly contributed to the long running cycle, but I just can't get over...
I am not at all optimistic about that. If there is a commodity constraint that prevents a reservation from being built, and there is capacity on the assembly line, there is 0 chance Ford will idle the assembly line to wait and fill that reservation before building others(dealer stock). This may...
I am not very keen on splicing or tapping my factory harness either. I'm sure someone will throw some instructions together eventually. I would be happy to, except my reservation is mid November, so I probably won't be getting my vehicle anytime soon.
Again, Thank you for everything!
Thank you for all the research and information you have provided!!
A thought: T harness in-line, connected into the taillight harness? (leave the 12v and brake controller signal just terminated if needed) so this becomes a plug-n-play solution?
Serious question: why do you think spillover MY21 orders will have priority over MY22 orders?
I am guessing by Nov 2021 or so, where Ford has scheduled all they can for MY21. All unbuilt MY21 orders (remember, MY21 was a "wishlist" item, not guaranteed by any means. Meaning everyone can choose...
I called owning at the end of last year, they were getting so much business that they had a loan minimum in the 400k range(can't remember exact amount). Also, they were not willing to do cashout loans. So make sure you confirm all the terms before making a decision.
if only the Maverick FX4 comes with the twin clutch transfer case that's on the Bronco Sport Badlands...... (TFL video says it doesn't, it comes with a single clutch transfer case, I believe that means it's very similar, if not the same, as the lower trimmed Bronco Sport)
Yah, getting a load floor that is even with the seat back when seats are down would be sooo nice. I wonder if it's possible to remove the existing false floor, add some support around the sides and middle, to increase the storage underneath, and bring the floor up to seat back (when folded)...
when raised up by the security drawer, it looks like the top edge of the doors (when stored in the back), would be above the rollbar and in the wind. The door bag and strap material may not be strong enough for that.
It may PHYSICALLY fit when parked, but if Ford tells you that you can, and...
I think Hawaii have a special climate right now. The tourists are flooding the islands, and there are not enough cars to rent. Tourists are renting U-Hauls because they couldn't get a regular rental.
If this works out for the OP, more power to you...
Here's the numbers from a Canada spec f-150 XL 4x2 with the 2.7
12L/100km City (19.6 US MPG)
9.3L/100km Hwy (25.3 US MPG)
10.8L/100km Combined (21.8 US MPG)
The US numbers are
20 MPG City
26 MPG Hwy
22 MPG Combined
The US number is ever so slightly higher than the Canada number converted (To...
none of those numbers are mpg.... The unit is "l(iter)/100km". As in it takes 13.9 liters of fuel for that vehicle to travel 100 km. The OP did the calculation for us, 13.9l/100km is 16.9mpg (US Gallon). The 20 MPG number listed on the sticker is misleading, because that's in Imperial gallon...
