Roll Out the Red Carpet: F-150 Most Popular Luxury Vehicle
POPULAR PICKUP A Ford F-150 at home at the Santa Gertudis Ranch in Texas.
Trucks are expensive. We already know that. But did you know that for 2014, the Ford F-150 is the most popular luxury vehicle sold? According to the folks at Truecar, the number one selling vehicle with an average transaction price over $50,000 is the F-150.
It’s no surprise the F-150 is a popular truck, and sales figures have proven that it’s the most popular vehicle in the country for decades. But with an average transaction price over $50,000, the F-150 outsold the luxury stalwarts at BMW by beating them in combined 3, 5, and 7 Series sales. That’s a lot of luxury trucks!
BEAT IT Better luck next time BMW.
Truecar is estimating that Ford will sell over 751,00 F-150 trucks this year, and an estimated 190,000 of them selling for over $50,000. A decrease in fuel cost is also causing an increase in truck sales, meaning these numbers could go even higher as more and more power come back to trucks.
KING OF THE RANCH A luxury ride for work and play.
In the largest truck state, Texas, people often buy trucks as their own vehicles. It is important to have something that will get the job done during the week, but also be good enough for a night on the town on Saturday and a trip to church on Sunday.
Trucks need to be more than just work tools; they need to be all things to all men. That’s why with the 2015 F-150 you can equip your truck with adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, and massaging seats. These are all features that used to only be available on high-end luxury cars not too long ago.
Don’t leave the rest of the Big 3 out, either. All three companies are expected to sell approximately 350,000 trucks this year with an average transaction price over $50,000. So if you’re in the market for a new luxury car, stop by your local Ford dealer! You might be surprised!
