The 17th episode of the Ford Bold Moves web-based documentary has hit the series of tubes we call the internet, and it's a sequel to Episode 11: King of the Hill that focused on the half-ton F-series trucks. Part II stars the new 2008 Ford Superduty, as the video spends most of its time at the Texas State Fair where the truck was debuted in its new F-450 form. The entire episode is mainly chest thumping on Ford's part, as the F-Series truck in all its iterations is the only product with a Blue Oval badge that unquestionably dominates its segment and has for so long. They do mention the impending competition from Toyota and new full-size truck models from General Motors, but when those new models are mentioned a crafty editor throws up some footage of the Tacoma instead of the Tundra and an unflattering shot of the previous generation "angry-eyes" Silverado. If you're hankering to see some of the new Superduty's exclusive features, like power telescoping mirrors, the hide-away tailgate step and collapsible bed extender, they're in there, too.

      I think that was a GMC passing by during the shot of the giant cowboy boots near the beginning.

      Justin, while I agree with you in that more actions should be taken, I don't think this is all about Mark Fields's ego. I got to meet him earlier this year, and based on what I saw, I think he deserves more credit than that.

      Re: #7 risingsun: The telescoping mirrors have been on Ford as well but not "powered". At least telescoping on the 2002 F550. If GMC has powered then I say Bravo, GMC. I worked at an RV centre and powered telescoping would have been a god sent, with all the varieties of RVs I pulled or carried.

      The extremely cunning Mark Fields is quitely using bold moves clips to promote himself.

      He is prominently featured in all the footages, building a cult following around him at the expense of Ford Motor.

      Instead of wasting time in the stupid moves, Ford should instead review its product and brand portfolio.

      Mercury and Lincoln should be put to sleep. jaguar and Land rover should be rid off. That will be the real bold move.

      Mark Fields wwent to Mazda and took all the accolades for the hard work done by his predecessor, then he failed at PAG, and now he is ruining Ford with this hideous egoistic self promotion.

      Im not intrested in this truck or the tacoma for that matter. Simply way overrated on both sides. Dodge Ram
      simply takes the lead in this case. Thank You

      Tihs is great but Ford needs to big some changes to the F150 line if it wants to stay competitive. Diesel, hybrids, and more power out of the 5.4
