Pickup Truck or Luxury Car?
When faced with this dilemma the first thing you have to know is what your lifestyle calls for. Do you spend most of your time driving in traffic before and after work? Do you work in an office and wear a suit to work? Sounds like you should choose the luxury car right? Maybe not. What if you like the idea of having a pickup truck with the added space of a truck bed that can be the perfect extended trunk? Are you going to give up a great deal of comfort in a pickup truck versus a luxury car, do you really have to make a choice like this?
The reality is in some way you have already made this choice, but let’s look at what a model from each group has to offer and while we do let’s keep one word in mind; versatility.
If we look at the Ford F-150 as our choice for the pickup truck you see that you have four different engines to choose from starting with a V6 at the base and a V8 at the top. The 3.5-liter twin turbocharged V6 gives you 365 horsepower and 420 lb.-ft. of torque to be a serious choice when it comes to power. The only transmission you can have on this truck is the six speed automatic transmission which is smooth and easy to enjoy.
While we have all heard the slogan of the F-150 being “built Ford tough” this is a more than capable truck for you to have as the right choice for your driving on a regular basis. What you might not realize is this massive power machine can come in a highly luxurious form in the Limited trim. This trim offers you heated rear seats, a moonroof, blind spot monitoring, trailer backup assistance and many more great features. At this level you can have a truck that is certainly close to luxury and is a comfortable ride with plenty of space for cargo and for passengers.
The luxury car we choose is the Audi A6. This car has the best interior on the market as one of the most impressive luxury cars you can find anywhere. This car comes in with the luxury features you expect such as a driver information system, satellite radio, Bluetooth connectivity and much more. You can enjoy a navigation system, added USB ports and an integrated jukebox feature if you choose to upgrade this already amazing car.
At the top of the engine platform for the Audi A6 is the 3.0-liter supercharged V6 engine that offers 333 horsepower and 325 lb.-ft. of torque. If you want to have a car that can give you a thrill right off the line but still be a reasonable car to drive, the A6 is a great choice for your driving.
Which one should you choose; your answers to the questions above certainly will help you lean one way or another. If you kept the word versatility in mind you can understand that the A6 is not going to bring home a load of lumber or take you and the family to a far off road destination. Because the F-150, and other brands of trucks, come with many luxury features on today’s market the decision as to what to buy has become more difficult than ever and make it so you have to make sure you have the vehicle that will work for your lifestyle.
