Live Chat this Monday with Eric Kuehn, 2011 F-150 Chief Engineer


FordInsideNews.com will be hosting a exclusive, live chat on Monday, January 24, with Eric Kuehn, chief engineer of the 2011 Ford F-150.



The chat will run from 9:00 am EST through 10:30 am. Eric is a busy guy and this was the only time we could tie him down.

A thread has been started here and will be where the chatting goes on Monday. The thread will be opened a couple of hours ahead of time for you to post questions.

Please join us on Monday morning and let your F-150 buddies know about the chat. Eric is a car guy, just like us.

Eric started tinkering with cars long before he had a driver’s license. As a 13-year-old in northern Michigan, he took it as a challenge to get the former family car – a 1966 Chevrolet Impala – running again. Kuehn spent about a year on the restoration project, repairing the body, refurbishing the interior and getting the engine and mechanical parts in working condition. He sold it and dove into his next project: a 1970 Ford Mustang.

He drove that all through high school and the Mustang was still with him when he joined Ford right out of college in 1986. Now he’s the chief engineer of another iconic Ford vehicle, the F-150. “What I enjoy most about working at Ford is the longstanding company heritage and what we mean in terms of our products and services,” Kuehn said.

“That’s especially true of the F-150. One of the advantages I have as the chief engineer is the team around me has such a connection to the customer and how they use the product. We understand how to meet those needs. We’re always looking at what we can deliver that will help the customer’s day-to-day life,” Kuehn said.

“For the 2011 model, we’re adding power and fuel economy leadership across the board to the best-in-class durability and capability F-150 is known for and that our customers demand.”

Dang - I can't believe I missed that! I hope you had a good turn-out. Everyone on this side of the mountains is driving to or at work around that time.

It depends on the question. Find the forum group that is the best fit (engine, tranny, model and year, etc.), or if in doubt, the All Ford Tech Board to get started and receive guidance from there.

You pay taxes based on the income that *you* earn, not on what your parents earn.

LOL - two spam posts with signature links in the Admin's own thread. Do we see a pattern here?

Hey Admin - I report these when I see them but seemingly no action is taken. Should I keep reporting or is it a waste of my time?
