Test drove a king ranch f-250 today

It was a black f-250 king ranch decked to the nines.. All I can say is a WHAT A PEICE OF SHHII... just kidding..

This thing is literally the rolls Royce of trucks.. There's no f n way in mind ANYONE can say that chevy or dodge is in ANY way better..

My next truck.. Period.. Ford made not only homerun but again set the bar for others to follow.. I can't say enough.. It's like the engineers got together and said.."ok guys, let's make the most badass truck humanly possible"..

Congrats.. Yall did!!

Turbo lag?.. Not existent.. He let me floor it all I wanted.. Peel the tires from a stoplight a couple times..Feels like as responsive a gas engine but with TONS of torque!!.. The torque/hp just feels different.. So smooth and linear.. It's fast but so smooth you don't realize how fast you're accelerating..

It'd take at least a week of steady learning to master all the functions and accesories..


Bottom line

HOME RUN

I just hope the engine is a success and not a flop like some of the past mills.
