I’ve been a Ford truck man for 25 years, driving nothing but F150s during that period. My current ride is a 2006 Lincoln Mark LT, which is an F150 in a tux.
And at 160,000 miles, I’m about to retire it and go searching for a new pick-up.
The F150s on display at the North American International Auto Show are fine vehicles. I particularly like the King Ranch version, although the loaded-up Platinum edition would be a nice replacement for the Lincoln.
But for the first time in a long time, I’m tempted to stray from the Blue Oval.
The Dodge Ram won truck of the year for a good reason. It’s fabulous, and I can see myself in the cab. Chevy is also a contender with the new Silverados.
Ford had been the king of pick-ups for a long, long time. But it’s next remake of the F150 has some tough competition to clear.
