Videos That Influenced My Buying Decision


Obviously Ford biased videos, but these have been out a while, and nobody is crying foul. Every manufacturer of trucks has videos too, but you only see them talk speed when mentioning Ford trucks.  Other trucks might be faster 0-60, but is that what you really care about in a truck?  One of the biggest influences for me was seeing the trucks taken apart.  See what you're really paying for.  Why isn't Nissan, Toyota, Chevrolet, and Dodge claiming these videos are bogus, and showing their trucks are better?  Been almost two years since some of these came out... think I know the answer, and that's why I bought what I did.

This system gives drivers who tow the visibility they need to back up to their trailer and line up precisely to hook up the hitch. The industry's only other truck application requires drivers to look down at the navigation screen as they're reversing.
