Modern F-150 Ad Flashes Back to Classic Ford Work Trucks
Westlake Ford shows the versatility of the F-150 and F-Series trucks old and new.
This week’s Throwback Thursday ad comes to us from the YouTube channel of Those Ford Guys and it features a regional commercial for the current F-150 and Raptor. This spot isn’t as old as most of our Throwback Thursday features, but this video from Westlake Ford in Ohio showcases the modern pickups with a flashback at some of the toughest Ford trucks from the past.
The Modern Ford Truck
This commercial showcases the current Ford F-150 in a variety of trim levels, focusing on the Raptor. Like many F-Series commercials, it shows people using the trucks for daily tasks while showing the Raptor doing Raptor things, like racing through the woods, blasting through water and just generally being awesome. The commercial highlights the fact that the modern half-ton pickups can do it all, from the daily grind to weekend fun, as the F-Series has been engineered to do everything that an owner could want.
The commercial also relates childhood fun on a bicycle to the fun that can be hard with the Raptor, which can be a natural progression for a young truck lover who looks forward to flying through the local off-road park.
The Classic Work Horse
What makes this regional Ford truck commercial comes around five seconds into the video. Before really getting into the modern trucks, this ad quickly flashes through an array of classic Ford work trucks. The clip shows three big Ford work trucks from the past 50 years, finishing up this short segment of the video with the mighty Raptor, reminding us that while this truck is built for play, it has decades of hard work built into the engineering.
