Airforums member reviews 2015 F-150...

?..or Local buddy makes the big time!

I was window shopping trucks last night and came across a great review by Consumer reports. Imagine my surprise when less than a minute into the video I found myself looking at someone I know!

You know him too! Tom posts here as "Mutcth".
We met Tom at a WBCCI event 3 years ago when he and his wife were in an Argosy. I knew he worked at Consumer Reports but I did not know he was doing this...

The video even features his Airstream. Way to go Tom!

165 cubic inch engine displacement, or 2.7L.

I think the Chrysler V-Twin air conditioning compressor of the 1960s, the venerable RV-2, was about that size. Atop a 7.2L engine. Not entirely a joke.

Anyone know the all up weight of this engine, as installed?

I'll be curious to see towing mpg, but imagine it won't be impressive. It's all about the average mpg, in the end.

Nice review and Airstream plug. Like that sidestep.

I liked how he was so calm gazing into the camera and then realized he was being towed.

Not enough to sway my Chevy DH but well done.
