    I signed up for the tour at the San Antonio Auto show next week. Does that mean I get to test drive one?

    See if they let you take a picture of the rear shock assembly. I want to see if they are outboard of the frame or just outboard of the leafs. Also a picture few pictures of the off road display in the left instrument screen.

    Will do. There is a video of the rear out there. But I will take some shots for ya just in case. Also I know the raptor version is outboard of the frame. I would hope the regular version is as well.

    Honestly kind of a let down. The guy wasn't very knowledgeable (didn't know what crawl control was called). It was all downtown seattle driving. Not much room to open it up. Half throttle felt good. Shifted smooth. Fuel economy was at 19.8 average when I got in. No clue for how long or where. Engine sounded great! Drove truck like yet quiet and smooth. Was disappointed with the side panel quality. Center console was nicer than I expected. I hated that the rear bench wasn't 60/40.

    I'm surprised the Lariat had a disappointing interior. If it got 20 mpg downtown that’s impressive.

    I appreciate your honest review, it sounds like the Ranger has some pros and cons.

    LOL Platinum to Lariat on the F150 is like $30k difference. No wonder you’re picky.

    I also sell Lincolns. But mostly I was using the comparison to my tacoma. I just need more time with it to be sure.
