TRAVEL | Eight days with a 2017 Ford F-150 Lariat Sport.

I had the opportunity to take a 2017 Ford F-150 Lariat Sport,  courtesy of Ford Canada, on an eight-day staycation through beautiful British Columbia. The new 2017 Ford F-150 Ecoboost engine now offers an impressive 10-speed transmission (3.5L Twin-Turbo V-6 engine, producing 375 hp) offering a smooth and powerful ride, which was perfect on my first vacation stop in Whistler Mountain. The supercrew was great for my two kids. It offered ample head and leg room even with their bulky booster seats. Equipped with a power tailgate with tailgate step, this was a great feature when loading and unloading our bags including my husband’s road bike.

This truck had so many options, but some of my favorites were the Auto Start-Stop Technology; it shuts off the engine when you come to a stop and restarts immediately when the brake is released to save fuel and reduce emissions. It takes a little getting used to but I loved it.

The Technology Package which includes active park assist and 360 Camera (with split-view display) made parking this full sized truck a breeze.

The heated steering wheel, Sony single CD with Sirius XM, and Voice-activated Navigation are a few more features on this fully loaded Ford F-150 Lariat Sports Edition that I loved.  Not to mention the beautifully laid out dashboard.

I used to own a 2010 Ford F150 V8 but this full-sized Ford Lariat Sport Edition takes truck luxury to a whole new level.  Driving this truck was fun and easy and I would definitely consider this as my next family vehicle (I’m sure my spouse wouldn’t fight me on that decision).
