That's the money maker. Without it, we wouldn't have the pony's that we do now. I think the new F150 looks great. Not sure how the new Raptor will end up though.

I thought the options and gadgets were awesome. The food flat seat and the gear lever folding flat.

That's a nice looking truck - I'm glad Ford went evolutionary with styling as opposed to that bad-acid-trip-on-steroids (a.k.a Silverado or Sierra).

What motor will the limited have?

If this was out last year it might have changed my mind....glad to see them improving it.

I think they did a very good job with it. I think the styling is a huge improvement over the current truck( And I think the current truck is very good looking).

I know everything is getting expensive, but holy hell is this going to be an expensive truck when all the options are ticked

This. The F-150 is THE cash cow in the automotive industry, and has been for years.

I love my '19 so far. Lots of cool new stuff for '21, but the prices are going to be insane. The coolest feature to me is the integrated generator, as I don't give a rat's ass if I have the best rolling tablet. Hopefully the generator is offered over all trims as a stand alone option, but knowing Ford more than likely you have to order a crew cab Platinum with all options and a cryptic order of packages to be able to tick the box....

At least it still has available the naturally aspirated 5.0 V8. I'd prefer the 7.3, but the 5.0 is a good engine.

I debated that when looking at trucks. The 5.0 was nice as far as sound and the ability to flex fuel. However the 3.5 EB crushes it in every other aspect. Even tune for tune the EB crushes it....and that's not even including the HO 3.5 EB.

Depends on what you want. If you're street racing with your pickup or otherwise taking it to the track, go for whatever you think will do some crushing. I use my pickup for other types of things, such as legally driving around, usually only when I need to haul something that won't fit into a car.

Service techs say to buy the 5.0 and I'd rather have the V8 sound.

Not debating that a naturally aspirated engine is great...however the 3.5 EB beats it in everything other than sound.

Check out the F150 forums for reliability data...I think you might be surprised.

Which one wins in cost to purchase and cost to replace/maintain?

There is no reason to back up a trailer at the gas station like shown in that video, just asking for trouble.

With logic like that why bother to get anything other than the base v6?
