Why My Kids Love My 2014 Ford F-150Apr 9th, 2020
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.
