I spent the day with Ford twirling around the South Bay in a couple of trucks and a couple of convertibles. I suppose May is themed around here. We all know that the Ford F series is the best selling vehicle in America. If, like me, you live in a city like Los Angeles (which is less of a city of more a collection of suburbs of varying density) a dual cab pick up truck likely never made it’s way onto your shopping list when you were looking for a new ride.
In all candor part of me felt absurd driving these beasts down the 405 and another part of me felt kind of smug, very safe and (surprise!) a little pampered. I’m looking forward to some real life experiences with the F-150. Like, would we actually tow things? Where do the groceries go? How short can my skirt be without a Paris Hilton moment? Is there a parking spot for the F-150 at the mall?
I don’t review cars and trucks. I experience them and share that experience with you.
Anyone can review the F-150. They can tell you about the reduced curb weight because of the aluminum body, they can compare the horsepower, torque or power to weight ratio. All of this can be done from the same numbers and stock photography we all have access to. I don’t review cars because the F-150 sells like crazy for a reason, it’s a good truck. The question is: Is this is a good truck for your lifestyle and if it isn’t what modifications would get it there?
They’re beautiful trucks with unexpected luxuries. Take a look.
