Tried on the road the 2019 Ford F-150 Wich the best-selling car in the USA with the same engine as the Ford Mustang 5.0! Beautiful, imposing, spacious, luxurious and surprisingly easy to drive. Here are our impressions of driving in the American land where the F150 is as widespread as-if, not beyond-our Fiat Panda!
Ferrari to celebrate the 150 years of the Republic wanted to call the monopoly of F1 own F150. A nice idea that quickly died out with the arrival of an ALT by Ford Motor Company that said: F150 is Ford and you can not use it for anything different.
For us seemed an exaggeration: in short, one is a Formula 1 monopoly that does not sell even and the other is a van with a body. Too bad that the Pick Up as it is said to the American is the medium to four wheels (but also more with the twins) more sold in the USA and considered by millions of Americans a myth to use for both work and leisure.
The color could only be blue, just to make a sort of variant of the Pandazzurri that did not bring us in the final to the Europeans of football but still did sell some cars to Fiat! Obvious that being the most sold car, every dealership has a nice stock but the Ford Sarasota that is not the Ford Miami was really scared looking at the deployment of Pick Up Ford F150 ready for sale and the surprising thing that three of the at least 100 were selling UTI during our morning spent in dealership and surely we missed some transaction!
On the road and live is really much and by above and guiding you understand why it is so beloved by the Americans. Massive, beautiful, well cared for in the details, especially in the version 2016, so much to appear in everything and for a whole car.
It comes from the remote control, the interiors are immense as a large SUV with excellent accessibility, habitability, and visibility. Great quality, finishes, leather interiors, three-dimensional navigator, electronic handcuffs and super equipment, remembering that we also tried the top of the range. In short, it seems to be aboard a luxury SUV with the only difference that if you turn behind you do not find the trunk that is outside and never ends potency really load what you want without any limit and especially tow what you want from a Boat to a two-axis caravan.
Spectacular and of course customizable as you want to see that here you just pay and you get everything you want and never dared to ask! Safe as evidenced by the 5 stars that received the 2016 F150 by the U.S. government by establishing a new primacy in its class with the use of noble materials such as aluminum which partially reduced the weight that always remains from maximum weight for obvious reasons.
2019 Ford F-150 Gas Mileage
The consumptions have been optimised, especially for the Ecoboost family, also known in here, perhaps with lower displacements, so that the soberest FA 26 miles to a gallon that is a very appreciable value. Available both 4×2 and 4×4 (Ours was obviously integral!) surprised us for the unsuspected handling and ease of driving with the height from the ground that makes you dominate the road giving you a great sense of security that must not turn into Cafeteria!
The active and passive safety is at the highest levels with systems very close to those of the autopilot with a series of sensors that help you in parking maneuvers (here Luckily the car seats are XXL) and during the march.
The load capacity is scary and putting a quad is a breeze as well as the super spending of Wall Mart a month for a family of 10 components. Inside in the top versions, we can talk really luxury so much that the American Ford 4 × 4 is comparable for finishes to his cousins Edge and Explorer who can safely defy the various X5, GLE, and Q5/Q7 but with very different prices!
