2015 Ford F-150: Wicked Lumbaaaaah
July 9, 2015
If I was from Boston, which I most certainly am not, I would describe our 2015 Ford F-150 as having some wicked lumbar. Of course, I'd neglect to pronounce the "r" and throw in an extra "a" or two. I say this because it's generally how I describe cars that have very aggressive lumbar support. It's weird, I know.
No matter how much I press the lumbar button, the seat back just doesn't deflate enough. As in the last-generation Honda Accord, I feel like I'm sitting in some sort of corrective posture chair.
It's puzzling since I can't think of another Ford that has such an issue/situation. In fact, I often find Ford to produce some of the most comfortable seats outside of luxury brands. Either way, it tends to take me quite a while to find the right seat position to mitigate the wicked lumbar.
Having said all that, I have not heard the same sort of complaints from my fellow editors, whereas those about the Accord were echoed by most. Perhaps my body type simply doesn't match well with the F-150. That's a wicked shame. Harvard Yard.
