2008 Ford F-150 4x4 King Lariat Ed.

Blings:

  • High-Quality Hide
  • Luxurious for a truck
  • Solid, reliable performer
  • Deals galore can be had on them right now

Dings:

  • Outpowered by competitors
  • Four speed automatic with no tow/haul feature
  • Heavy (duh)
  • Thirsty (double-duh)

Ruling: The F-150 is as functional as a Leatherman and more boring than watching C-SPAN, but at least functional boredom comes in classy Texas-style luxury.

Until the Honda Civic recently de-throned it, for decades, yes decades, the F-150 pickup has been the number one selling vehicle in the good ‘ole US of A. If this statistic comes as a surprise, then you either live on the east coast, the west coast or the lost coast. Heartland America is where the F-150 thrives. Take a trip down to the local diner in Peoria, Illinois sometime. You’ll see pickup beds filled with everything from horse feed to Hemi engine blocks. They range in age and condition from rusty, run-down, Reagan era models to a brand new shiny, speck-free 2008 King Ranch Edition; identical to the one we tested.

Blings:

  • More torque than a locomotive
  • Luxurious and spacious interior
  • Ridiculously large in every way, shape and form

Dings:

  • Embarrassing fuel economy
  • Kidney-bursting suspension
  • Ridiculously large in every way, shape and form

Ruling: I love America!!!!!!!!

All I was thinking as I steered this absolute monstrosity of a pickup into a parking lot full of Harleys was to not be a bonehead and accidentally knock them over like a pile of dominoes. I had to get a few of the obligatory Harley pictures, and this was the perfect opportunity. Totally by chance, I was just passing through Temecula, saw the Harley dealership and decided to drop in. Little did I know there was a huge event going on; a parking lot filled with bikes, babes and a preacher enlightening fellow Harley brothers.
