    Yeah cause they can't stop laughing....As much as I hate to say it ;this gimmick much like the muti-pro tailgate and the rear steer axle before it will be a low seller and abandoned by GM after 2 years. Eventually leaving those who did buy into the gimmick with no option to repair or replace it when the time comes.

    Eh, unlike GM, Ford doesn't mention its competition in advertising.

    Sure they do. Here's a recent advertisement for the new Ford Ranger that makes comparisons to its chief competitor, Toyota Tacoma. No mention of the Tacoma's composite bed, though.

    Hmm. well with the bigger trucks (F-series), they tend to just say "the competition", or "the other guys", etc.

    You know, that's because they aren't defensive, at least in public. GM???? Doesn't know what it is anymore.
