Geez....7.5 MPG??? What's the point of even having a vehicle like that then? With the cost of the truck anyway, that sucker should run on Mr. Fusion or not exist outside of the movie.

For not being a Jeep...the thing is pretty hardcore.

But does it have the Autobot symbol embossed on the tailgate? I mean, that's what really matters.

edit: I read the article.. it does :D

7.5 mpg? As much as I like Ironhide, he's not exactly enviornment friendly.

yeesh. they better stamp the Autobot Symbol into the hood, tailgate and my FOREHEAD at that price.

my F-150 Lariat 4x4's buyout price is only 34,000$

Might as well walk, by the time you stop every few miles for more fuel, you'd be ahead from the walking.

Still, it would be nice to have just for show!

Yea I am not really a fan of GMC at all as a company though sometimes they do have nice concepts. I am die hard Jeep, but since Jeep is owned by Chrysler (meh) I suport the other "family" groups like Dodge. Ford is pretty good as well though.

I just think it is really neat that Monroetruck is doing this package for people. AEV (American Expiditionary Vechicles) does this sort of after market package stuff for Jeeps. Like a V8 hemi swap into your TJ.

MPG is inversely proportionate to how "cool" the car is.

Example:

Prius = Nerd
1972 Buick Centurion convertible with a 455 = Totally Rad

Yes, I drive a '72 Centurion (you can pick'em up cheap!):

*drools*
How much?
I envy your ride.
Anyhoo, I'd buy Ironhide. If you don't like the MPG, then modify it. To me, it's worth it to own that truck. Mostly 'acoause it's American, not some import trash.
Like the Prius.

My feelings about the milage, if you're concerned about the price of gas, you probably can't afford it. I just thought it was interesting that this truck is being produced "movie accurate" and getting the attention of the mainstream. This is the kind of purchase you'd make if you won the lottery...

My thoughts exactly. If I were in the market for this kind of work truck and was a transfan, this IS the vehicle to drive.

Personally, I'm still hoping for either a standard gray Mustang or a blue Corvette Z06...& they're more practical & affordable, yet still TF bling.....especially if you put custom flames on the Z06.

Personally, I'm waitin' for Peterbilt to step up to the plate with a "Prime" package. When that happens, then I will start being truly impressed. Not that the Ironhide package isn't impressive, I just think it's about time the real big rigs got some of the spotlight.
