Without a doubt. Thatís what I meant. It seems Every city dept buys f150 fleet vehicles. I didnít think much about the rental companies but Iím sure they buy some as well.

I appreciate you pointing that out for the large number of people who apparently didn't understand. The OP appears to be looking for an easier vehicle to park, not carry a huge payload while towing a huge trailer thru 12 inches of snow up a mountain.

You are so wrong saying a majority of F-150 sales are fleet sales.

Thank you.

I have 2 vehicles.
A Chevrolet Silverado 4X4 Z71.
And
A small 4 cylinder sedan.

I always prefer the ride of the sedan over the truck. Most of the time I am going from point A to point B.

The Silverado does have the upgraded seats and is comfortable. But not nearly as comfortable as the sedan. Never mind the gas mileage between the two.

I don't haul anything with the Silverado but I do have a small utility trailer. And as years go by that utility trailer is used maybe once per year.

So if I was going to eliminate the two vehicles and just stick to one. The Honda Ridgeline would be a perfect compromise. And be saving on insurance to boot. The Honda Ridgeline has a car like comfortable ride.

Maybe I am but Ford isn’t publishing much on where those sales numbers are actually coming from and there is a reason for that.

Look I’m im not bashing ford, I really like the new f150 and if I were to spend 50k on a truck it would probably be the king ranch. My first truck was an 89 f150 ext and I loved that thing. Wish I Would have paid to have it shipped cross county when we moved 2 years ago. If I did, I would have bought the RL from the getgo for my DD.
