Dearborn aluminum or Milwaukee steel? If you were going to make one new vehicle purchase this year, what would you choose? A 2015 Ford F-150 or a 2015 Harley-Davidson Road Glide? They are both incredible, American-made machines, but for me the answer is simple. Read why.

Overall Winner: The 2015 Harley-Davidson Road Glide. The 2015 Ford F-150 is an awesome truck and the 2016 version should be even better, but if I was to buy a new vehicle this year, I would definitely go with Milwaukee steel – for now.
