This week I take the Ford F150 Super Crew up to the cottage to see why everyone uses these as family vehicles instead of pure utility trucks. Turns out, there is a good reason...

      So I have a 2018 Ford F150 XLT with the 5.0 Lightning Blue and I do use my truck to go to WalMart and other places. When your 6ft.4in and your friends are also very tall, the little car thing doesn't work. Good video but your opinion is just that... yours. Keep iit to yourself and let me drive my truck how I want to.

      My wife’s 2014 CRV gets 22 mpg, my F150 Crew 2.7 4WD gets nearly about 1.5 mpg less, the Ford is quick, quiet, comfortable and much safer! Also carries 5 no problem. F150 is a great daily driver. At the end of 2 years I’m amazed at just how good the Ford is for the money and how way over rated the Honda is, great reputation, but merely a transportation device with no soul!

      Great review from regular dude... I did buy the 2018 Lariat, 502 chrome package, and simply love it!!! Camping 1, or you and wife can either set up in the back seat with seats up, or camp inside bed. Either way It can get you to the site and if late, Both of you have somewhere to camp out in a bind….lol Yes,.... I would NEVER go back to any car, or 2 WD truck as this package has it ALL!!!!

      Thank you for the honest review of an everyday driver rather than the in depth technical review you see most of the time. Well done. Merci.

      I would go with the 5.0 coyote V8. It’s got plenty of power 395 hp and 400 pounds of torque which is plenty of power for most needs. Tried and true engine and those turbos are expensive when they go out and they will go out. Plus you can’t beat that V-8 sound.

      Nice video but you could have taken that 1700 dollars that you spent on the moon roof and purchased the 3.5L with the max towing package that comes with the 13,200 pounds of towing.

      All the same reasons i bought one. All the utility with no fuss and comfort is plenty reasonable for a utility minded vehicle.

      How is it going Man? Really good review. It's funny how you said that if you aren't doing certain things that you shouldn't be driving such pick up....i am a stay home dad and I take care of the home affairs like grocery store runs and run errands including picking up the kiddos from school. I drive a magnetic color 2017 f-150 fx4 sport trim with a coyote v-8 engine and not the eco-crap. And from experience I can tell you that whether I load up groceries, I'm loading up equipment to go mow my mom's property or go on a date with my wife....i can do it all. These trucks are very capable, comfortable and powerful.

      Buy a 3.3L V6 for reliable fuel efficent F150 to drive around the city/ Buy 5.0 for Tow & Haul.
      Turbos reliability is doubtful if you gonna spend $50k on a truck which warraty covers i believe 100k km in Canada.

      Started well, then turned into a shit review. Hey, jerkoff, not everyone wants a Prius. How arrogant do you need to be to "review" a vehicle then tell people that it's "truly silly" to want one vehicle over another? How about shut your damn pie hole when it comes to your opinions on what people should, or should not use as a daily driver, and just review the damn truck?

      Great review for a man that doesn’t like trucks! After years of driving Toyota Tacoma’s, I feel like my lil 2.7 is a luxury rocket ship and mines just a basic STX 4wd Crew.

      Great review, however I would personally keep the personal opinions out. You don't get to dictate why someone buys a truck. If I want to drop 50k on a vehicle I drive to work and back and nothing else, I will. Nobody wants to hear "if you reason is [this], you should never buy [this]." Again though, great review.

      If you get push button start, you get the soft opening tailgate because you can press a button on the key fob to open it.

      You can get a V8 if you want it to be slower and tow less, sure.

      Why do people buy sports cars? You don't need to go fast. Same thing with trucks. Some people just like driving trucks even though they may not use it as much as they probably should. Good review otherwise

      Typical Cucknadian... "YOU DO NOT buy this truck for this reason, you will buy something smaller, please."
      Freakin' socialists think they can tell people what they can and can't do. God, that pisses me off.
      I own this truck, with the max tow package 3.5l V6 EB. $56k (American) sticker, paid $42k. It's my daily driver because I LOVE pickup trucks.

      I like trucks because I like being higher off the ground from sedans, trucks are very utilitarian. Sure I don't have a boat or horse trailer but can tow another car if I'm helping someone or if I'm relocating. I've driven sedans since 2005 and I'm tired of it.
