The Ford F-150 – or any full-size pickup truck, for that matter – is a rare and ultimately, curious sight in Europe. Owning one certainly requires a major commitment for someone living in the Old Continent, as high fuel prices and very narrow city roads make it particularly difficult to enjoy or even use the F-150 on a daily basis.
This doesn’t mean people in Europe are not interested in what it’s like to drive such a large pickup truck, and the following review from British magazine Auto Express tries to answer some of their questions.
Unfortunately, the review was not filmed in Europe, but in the U.S., so we don’t get to see the F-150 crossing paths with a pocket-sized Peugeot 107, for instance, or trying to park in an European city with impatient drivers slamming their fists on their horns.
However, the video is worth watching, even if it’s only to see how a European driver reacts to a large pickup truck that embodies the American lifestyle.
