    We have two Envisions in stock one red and one beige. We are located in central iowa.
  5. Let's call a spade a spade. We have been here before, they were just called station wagons back then. Everybody had one. Sedans will come back in a few years.
  6. Did you even READ the article? I agree that you cannot easily weld aluminum to steel, so I get that. But they DID go back to the drawing board after finding the trucks NEEDED these extra protective bars. And since the single cab does not have these extra bars, I am curious how it compares to the single cab Dodge, Chevy, and Toyota...
  7. in that case why did they have to go back to the drawing board and add steel tubing? why not more aluminum? why need to add anything at all?
  8. "IIHS says it comes down to four protective steel bars that Ford installed on the SuperCrew that are left off the SuperCab. The tubular bars, welded to the frame and placed in the front wheel wells, also are missing from regular cab F-150s." So the correction was to do the same thing they did to the SuperCrew. They must have thought the smaller configurations would weigh enough less that they wouldn't be necessary. That's why they have these tests. Good thing they corrected it and brought the safety of not just the SCrew but of the smaller cabs up to a high standard. exactly. people keep crowing about how strong the aluminum Ford is, when really steel came to the rescue. what exactly IS military grade, anyhow?
  9. except Ford "corrects" poor crash performance with STEEL reinforcements. . . http://www.autonews.com/article/20150729/OEM11/150729843/new-test-shows-disparities-in-ford-f-150-crash-protection
  10. doesnt work for me, they forced the current design language onto the old body. not that the other face looks a lot better. . .
