While it might not come as a surprise, Texans buy more pickups than any other state in the U.S. In fact, one in every four vehicles sold in the state is a pickup, according to W.F. Strong for KUT 90.5. And, among Texas trucks, the Ford King Ranch® edition is the top of the line.
The Ford F-150 King Ranch® edition represents the luxury model of Texas more so than any BMW or Mercedes, adds Strong; 40 percent of King Ranch® models are sold in the state, which indicates that it’s a truly special trim level.
In the 2019 Ford F-150 King Ranch® edition you’ll find an intense Ford V8 engine paired to a 10-speed transmission that delivers 395 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of toque. There’s standard LED lighting, chrome trim, and special badging. Plus, the interior has dual-zone auto climate control, leather trimmed seats, and the available B&O™ Sound System by Bang & Olufsen.
“The flagship truck for Texas appeal is Ford’s King Ranch® edition pickup. Everybody knows that The King Ranch is the most famous ranch in Texas and known throughout the U.S. as an icon of manliness,” writes Strong. “It was a stroke of marketing genius, 15 years ago, when Ford wrapped their truck in the manly ethos of the King Ranch brand. Every leather seat within the truck is emblazoned with the King Ranch Running W cattle brand. Macho sublimity.”
