This will cost Ford tons of money down the road, if any truck catches fire the lawyers will jump all over them with copies of that video. Forget the loss of the truck the real lost is that it was filmed and distributed.

Some of the best engineered production cars made catch on fire. A test mule's purpose is to find issues and resolve them so better for them to find the problem now than when its in production.

I know it was of no use for this type of fire, but somehow like pouring salt on a wound...the truck was towing two tanks full of water.

I'll bet next time they remember to bring a pump and hose for those water tanks.
