#5DadsGoWild: 2019 Ford F150 Review

What a sight, the F150 in fire truck red. I know that’s probably not the official colour name, but I can’t help but be reminded of my boyhood years looking up as the fire trucks would speed past. The bright red, the heroes sitting in their uniforms, off to save another day.

This is a truly beautiful vehicle. You can keep your low, fancy, and completely impractical sports cars. Oh sure, they’re fun to drive, until you hit a speedbump and take off the fender.

Give me a truck any day. Having a vehicle, even if it’s just for a loan, that you can throw into any scene, in any element and have full confidence that it will thrive is a special feeling.

She loves it as much as I do!

 

When you sit in the driver’s seat of the 2019 Ford F150, the seat feels like it was made for you. The wheel is big enough for tired and gloved hands, everything is within reach and has all the features you could ask for in the very latest vehicle. GPS, music, phone connectivity, all-around parking cameras, and yes this one parallel parks itself too!

Don’t worry, we were still parked!

 

The flatbed has room for anything you need to haul, and the power of the engine makes you feel like a captain of a speedboat out on an empty lake. It will tow whatever you’ve got and will help you hitch it to the back too.

As I drove it out of the dealership lot, I felt like a success. I could see people looking at me, just like I look at people when they are driving something as spectacular. There are only a few types of vehicle that will do that to me, and this is one of them.

This is the truck that leads the way for our recent #5DadsGoWild trip, where four other Dad-bloggers and I headed out to the forested eastern BC for a bonding experience, content creation trip, and old-fashioned bit of fun before the winter arrives.

It powered up the mountain roads and made over-taking a breeze. On the way back we went through some monsoon-style rain and felt safe and secure inside the spacious cab, which has the best visibility of the 2019 trucks I’ve test driven so far. From the huge side windows to the moonroof and even the large rear window, you really know what’s going on around you.

For the drive to Manning Park, I made a playlist of probably the best driving songs, ever. Want to listen too? Here’s the Spotify link:

 

Disclaimer: Ford Canada loaned me this truck for a full and honest review, which is exactly what I’ve given. Sadly they didn’t let me keep it, which is kinda mean really. Seriously, what kind of company teases a long-time Ford-fan (and loyal customer) and makes them give their dream truck away. Is there someone I can write to about this?
