Default New regular cab V8 pickup truck

Looks like Ford is the last man standing on this. You can actually order a new 1/2 ton reg cab short bed with the 5.0 V8.
Chevy does offer the reg cab but only with a turbo 4 cylinder engine.
Ram no longer offers a reg cab truck.

It sucks that Ford is the only one thinking like a red blooded American male.

That's exactly what I have on order and is currently 'in production'. I'm glad Ford still sells them but they do limit available options. You can only get it in the XL version without many options. Fortunately, for 2024, some options have become standard across the board.

1. They look cool.
2. They are faster than the bigger ones.
3. Cheaper.
4. Did I mention they look cool and are faster.

I have other vehicles for transporting people so no need for the extra seats.

Regular cab, long bed has been THE workmans horse, for decades...

Thing is, you can't get them in the higher trims ie: Lariat. At least last time I looked.

You want a truck that you can park in a standard parking space-that would be it.

A reg cab short bed makes a cool little hot rod. And at the prices of a classic truck in excellent condition makes one think.

Your title didn't mention bed length, and you continued by saying it was only available with a turbo 4 cylinder.

Yeah, but THAT is a different subject. Classic trucks (depending on year) are cool as reg cabs....

Agree. The classic trucks I like are when reg cab was the norm.

Be even better if it had a manual transmission option with the V8.
