Hey the Tundra guys could do it...

Since they did the bogus Tundra "tow" video with the shuttle, I'd like to see Ford use my image for the MPG of the EcoBoost HA.

First time Ive seen an ecoboost dash...
Why is Ford still using mechanical dials for gauges that look 20 years old? Wth. It's 2013, go digital or go home. The old mechanical dials/gauges look sooooo outdated. Matter fact, I'm sure those might be the same gauges they used in the 1990 superduty. At least update the colors or something

Um, all F150's have the same gauges And I love them. Don't want any of that "foreign" digital crap. And BMW gauges have been the same forever..don't see anyone questioning that My Porsche had the same, as did my Shelby...not sure anyone really cares about gauges...

HUDs are pretty cool. The Camaro has them as well.

Can you imagine the cost increase???? Not to mention, its a TRUCK. Not a luxury sedan. Clusters are already a grand a piece. Trucks already cost $50k, we don't need Ford raising the price to $55k

I have digital gauges in my 1990 Mazda MX-6 and love them! I also seem to remember Aerostars and Grand Marquis with digital clusters as well...

I would rather not have digitial. The less electronic bs that can fail in my vehicle the better.

Digital guages, get a Civic if you want that. It's horrible how huge the speed numbers are in those and how everyone passing sees how slow your going
