2015 Ford F-150: Remote Tailgate Release Comes In Handy
May 18, 2015
When I needed a truck, I didn't have one. When I had a truck, I didn't need one. That was my story before I bought a Ford F-150 years ago and remains my story now that I've sold it. Lucky for me, I had access to our long-term 2015 Ford F-150 last weekend, because I needed a truck.
It was a simple job. Pick up three tables and sixteen chairs. The only challenge was the 6-foot rectangular table, which was just inches too long to lay flat with a closed tailgate. So I rested it on top. Sounds easy, but it required one arm propping up the table while the other lifted and shut the tailgate.
Bed accessories were useful. The tie-downs are well-positioned and easy to access. The ability to lower the tailgate with a button on the key fob is somewhat helpful. Being able to raise it back up with the touch of a button would be even more helpful, especially in this instance.
Driving this truck made me miss owning one. I wonder what's for sale on eBay today.
