This month, Steve shares why his kids love his 2014 Ford F-150.

We own a 2014 F150 XLT XTR model and love it! I thought it would be fun to ask my three kids why they loved the truck as well and here are a few of the things they said:

It is high up – “It’s like riding on a horse”, my son said. We even had some friends come visit from out of town and they currently drive a minivan and one of the hits of the visit was riding in the truck. Who would have thought an F-150 would have that kind of draw.

They can sit side by side and still be close enough to touch each other – which really means poke, prod and otherwise bother each other until either my wife or I need to intervene.

It sounds cool when we accelerate – “Daddy, it sounds like we are in a race car”. The 3.5L V6 Ecoboost engine does sound good when accelerating (particularly when you compare it to our minivan).

“The grey colour makes it look like fast” – who would have thought grey and fast went hand-in-hand? Good to know.

It is fun to climb (when parked) – given its clearance off the ground only my 9-year-old can scamper up the running boards or climb up the bumper or tailgate into the bed of the truck – he says it is fun. I say don’t fall off or your mother will hurt me.

We would love to hear why you or your kids love your Ford vehicle. Connect with us on Twitter or Facebook to share your story.
