Those do look pretty nice but the reviews so far are not looking good. . If I were to get a small midsize pickup it would most likely be the the TACO though. Toyota and Hondas are about the only thing I have found that I can put 20-25k/year on and not lose my shirt on maintenance and depreciation. Anything smaller than the tundra and I’d get a RL.

Look Iím 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.
I like the fact that Ford can be a Fortune 500 company just on the profits of the F-150 with sales of $145 billion this year.

This is what the Honda Ridgeline is.

Everyone knows that the Honda Ridgeline is not a real truck. ... It's a front-wheel-drive unibody vehicle based on Honda's Pilot mid-size crossover SUV. The Ridgeline is completely unlike any other truck currently on the market

The reality is that all of the Big Three have pretty robust fleet sales with Dodge having the fewest in both real numbers and percentage of sales.

Governments have master agreements with all the companies to supply various vehicles for X dollars per unit. Local governments will usually either sign on to their state's agreement or the federal one (which is arguably better) to get their equipment.

How good are these agreements you may ask. How about a $50K Super Duty for $22K? That was the federal number a couple years ago.

Would it be nice to be handed that kind
Of discount. And I bet you wouldnít even have to spend your entire day negotiating to get it. Lol
