I told Oppo that my father was looking for a new truck. Oppos were very helpful by the way, thanks! I was trying to sway him toward a new Taco, because that is what I would want if I was in the market for a new truck. Honestly, he was pretty sold on it pending a test drive. However, a few of your comments made me re think my influence and I’m glad that I did. He had already driven an F150, and liked it. So I told him that it was probably the best option for him. He picked it up yesterday. 2017 F150 XLT crew cab 6.5' bed 3.5L Ecoboost w/ the 10 speed. It’s huge.
HammerheadFistpunch mentioned the Ridgeline and advised against the Taco due to seating position, which reminded me that my dad is always bitching about the difficulty of getting in and out of cars. He nixed the Ridgeline because it only comes in non colors and he was looking for something hella red. Saracen Manual Douche Elitist said that the F150 is probably the best for a guy who has been driving BMWs for the past 10 years or so, and I agree. The taco is a truck for trucks sake, and my dad was after a truck for having a trucks sake. That 6.5' bed will get used once per year when they go on vacation haha.
Yes, I drove it. It’s super smooth and the 3.5 Ecoboost has plenty of power. However I slightly prefer my pal’s lifted F250, and greatly prefer my Ranger because I don’t enjoy driving large cars/trucks. Most importantly, my dad loves it. Anyway, thanks for your comments/advice!
