Top Five Things You Shouldn’t Put in Your Fancy New Ford Cupholder
While some people buy trucks based on gas mileage or rugged looks, we all know that the most important parts of a vehicle are its cupholders. They need to be sturdy, large and capable of holding just about any beverage ever created by man, preferably with those little spring-loaded gripper arms to keep your Big Gulp safe from those dreaded potholes.
Ford engineers have received a patent for a unique cupholder design between the front seats. The design has two main components – a combination cupholder and storage bin with upper panel that slides from left to right to transform the storage bin into two additional cupholders. And if a driver or passenger needs more open storage space, the panel easily slides back to the right, clearing the way for bulkier items that won’t fit in a cupholder space. These magical cupholders are making their debut on the all-new 2017 Ford Super Duty, so if you want to be wowed by their magic, you’ll have to drop a pretty penny.
Cupholders can have many uses in your Ford truck, but here are the top 5 things you probably shouldn’t use them for:
1. Makeup – it’s messy
2. Dipping sauces – unless they are amazing
3. Your pets – especially poisonous ones
4. Chocolate – at least not on a hot day
5. Pokemon – eh, well maybe
