Big Business: The 2019 Ford F-150 Raptor Is A Showstopper
Sometimes you test drive a vehicle and search for inspiration to write a review to accompany the video coverage of the vehicle. Then there are times when you get something like the 2019 Ford F-150 Raptor and the reviews writes itself.
Literally within minutes of the company that dropped this vehicle off for me for Ford at my home, I began to generate attention with this truck. My neighbor, who owns a construction business, came over to me as I sat in the truck familiarizing myself with some of the basic functions to take a look at what he called his “dream truck.”
He told me: “This is the truck that I dream of. I want this truck so bad. Why don’t you swap with me?”
We actually ended up doing a walk around the vehicle together, as he was impressed with towing bed in the back, the attention to design detail and the overall feel of this super-sized vehicle.
That set the tone for attention I would get in other places, like when I pulled up to the Hilton Hotel in Downtown D.C. headed to the White House Correspondents Dinner. The valets working the parking at the hotel playfully argued over who wanted to drive it down to park it in their garage.
For its show-stopping presence, this truck really is a great vehicle for those who like large trucks in general or have a business that would benefit from it.
It’s spacious, its comfortable and the drive is manageable and not reflective of the truck size.
I even took my mother for a spin in it and she got a kick stepping up and holding the arm handle to get it. Let’s just say, she’s no spring chicken.
Favorite Feature: The comfort of the interior cabin
Least Favorite Feature: Not applicable to this vehicle
Spin Control: It’s big, it’s bold and it’s attractive—this truck starts around $52,855 and I believe its worth it!
