Ford’s ‘Pure Michigan’ F-150 Celebrates Blue Oval’s Roots
Ford gives props to its home state with a special-edition F-150. But does it have enough local flavor to satisfy the Juggalos?
Michigan is getting its own custom Ford with the release of the “Pure Michigan” Special Edition F-150. The truck is a tribute by Ford to it’s home sweet home. And certainly Michigan is deserving of a special edition, because not only is it home to so many great American vehicles, it has also given us great talent and many contributions to popular culture.
The Pure Michigan F-150 has many unique features, including gray and black leather seats with the “Pure Michigan” logo, as well as exterior badges. The truck is now available for purchase in Michigan at 77 Ford dealerships.
Now, the “Pure Michigan” Special Edition F-150 is pretty amazing on its own accord, but some Michiganders have their own ideas on how they’d like the truck to better reflect their state.
Michigan native and local disc jockey Bobby Guy, from Kalamazoo’s K102.5 FM, came up with some great ideas on what the F-150 should include to truly represent Michigan, such as cup holders specifically “for your Vernors or Faygo pop,” and a “Juggalo Graphics Package: Optional. But perfect for Insane Clown Posse fans.”
Being that we’re talking about Michigan here, of course Guy also suggests that “snow tires should come standard for the three, five, or 18 months you’ll need them.”
And being the F-150 fanatics that we are, we have a few ideas, too…
