If there’s one thing Texas has an ample supply of, it’s wide open spaces. From El Paso to Texarkana, and from Amarillo to Corpus Christi, there are a lot of open roads and fields just begging to be explored. Whether you’re towing things in Houston or road tripping to an Odessa football game, you’ll want the right vehicle to handle anything that comes its way. That’s what makes the ford F-150 truck the perfect vehicle for Texas. It’s got the biggest bang for your buck. And here’s why:
When you get a Ford F-150, you get the towing capacity that goes with it. Whether you are helping people move or working construction, this truck is perfect way to become the hero in any situation. The 2011 Ford F-150 EcoBoost recently won a powertrain performance exercise against the competition towing a trailer up Davis Dam in Arizona.
All the towing capacity in the world is useless if you don’t have the engine to back it up. Every F-150 features a V6 or V8 engine designed to fit your needs. . Ford is the first and only automaker to equip its entire full-size pickup lineup with fuel-saving six-speed automatic transmissions as standard equipment. So, the next time you drive off the beaten track, you don’t have to worry about your truck not being able to keep up with you.
Now, towing and power are great features, but nobody wants to drive an uncomfortable vehicle. From the smooth ride to the purposeful yet upscale interior that has universal appeal, every 2011 Ford F-150 delivers the ultimate in driver and passenger comfort. Premium Sony sound systems are available, as are SNYC (Ford’s voice-activated media and phone interface) and Sirius Travel Link (that provides navigation plus real-time traffic, weather, and fuel prices among other features). These features can sure come in handy on those long hauls.
You don’t want to be driving a truck that doesn’t get recognized for its safety. Ford gets top five-star ratings from the federal government in nearly all test categories and top ratings from the IIHS in front, side, and rear categories. This is important for someone that wants to keep their truck for a very long time.
So, if you’re in the market for a new vehicle, and want to get something that will take you anywhere you want to go, be sure to get a new 2011 Ford F-150 truck. Then you can drive, haul, and tow anything and anywhere in this great state.
