With its announcement of the upcoming 2016 F-150 Limited, Ford has gone a step further in catering to the desires of customers in the lux-truck market.

Not only will it be fitted with high-end features such as fiddleback eucalyptus interior trim and LED headlamps, it’ll be able to tow as much as 10,000 pounds (when properly equipped). In other words, it’ll offer the trappings of an expensive sedan with the capabilities of a pickup – for a price that will likely top out north of $70,000 when fully loaded.

What if you don’t need to haul a trailer, though? What can that same approximate amount of money buy you?

At a Ford dealership, you can get a nicely optioned 2015 Mustang GT Fastback for less than $47,000 and walk away with more than enough money for a base Suzuki Hayabusa.

Or you can just wait for the 2017 Raptor and save what’s left over after you sign on the dotted line for upgrades…
