10-months into owning the Work/Play F150 and we've had some time to but the get a feel for the truck, the suspension, and the hybrid powerplant. See how it handles for long road trips and push it offroad at events from coast to coast include the King of the Hammers and Daytona Truck Meet. It got all dolled up for Ford's 2020 Virtual SEMA Special and got down and dirty wheeling countless trails, sand dunes and towing the all new Ford Bronco back to use for product development.

So what do we think... its a freakin' awesome truck. It lives up to the Built Ford Tough and has done everything we've asked of it on-road, off-road, loaded down or cruising around as a daily driver. While we were admittedly skeptical of the PowerBoost hybrid, its won us over with tons of power on tap and decent fuel economy (when not towing). This F150 has the Limited trim package, the highest end Ford offers and it shows with all the technology inside and out, the creature comforts and and styling cues.

So at this point with plenty of time spent out on the road, while its lived most of its life in our home state of Michigan, its made the cross country drive to Johnson Valley, CA for King of the Hammers, a cruise down to Daytona Beach, FL for Daytona Truck Meet and several trips up to the Silver Lake Sand Dunes in Michigan and other offroad destinations. With more than 10,000-miles on the odometer we wanted to give a rundown of this truck, what's done to it, how its performed and what's next for it. Check it out...
