From the spy pics we know the electric F150 is getting independent rear suspension, but are you guys interested in air suspension or traditional spring suspension if given the choice?

Pros for air suspension:
Ride quality
Adjustable
Improved towing capability (can increase firmness to account for heavier loads)

Cons for air suspension:
Cost (bumps up vehicle price, sometimes significantly)
Maintenance (replacement cost)

I would rather see air ride suspension on lariat and higher in gas engines cause I am not buying a electric vehicle.

The F150 EV is going to be HEAVY. I'm not sure it's going to work with traditional spring suspension especially once the bed is loaded up. The thing is going to sag like crazy if it doesn't have an air suspension. Besides, all of its competitors will have air suspension so it's going to be disadvantaged without it.

This would be a wait and see for me... I'd worry about the long term reliability... The sunroof and "deployable" side steps are already broken on my 2015 F150 with 75K miles.. I don't think adjustable parts and bladders in the suspension once it's out of warranty are for me. Ford literaly sells a million trucks a year so anything they can do to save 5 cents a truck is a big deal...
