For an egalitarian truck that takes everyone’s comfort into consideration, take a look at a used 2016 Ford F-150 SuperCrew. If you’ve got a family of four with extra long limbs, then this is hands-down the vehicle for you.
The lucky pair up front now gets flat seats on a single plane. Ford has also made the door armrest and center console level to each other, so you aren’t perpetually slouching on one side.
The Car Connection explains that the 2016 model is now two inches wider than its predecessor, which makes a huge difference inside the cab. The driver and front passenger each get 40.8 inches of headroom with 43.9 in for their legs. Shoulder and hip space are also generous at 66.7 in and 62.5 in respectively.
Head to the back seats and you’ll find 40.4 in for noggins and 43.6 in for toes. If these numbers sound familiar, it’s because they’re nearly identical to what the driver and passenger enjoy up front. Wiggle room is also on par with the first row, with 64.7 inches for hips.

For more than 35 years, the Ford F-150 has ranked as America’s best selling vehicle. Undoubtedly, its unwavering support is due to the fact that it has continued to evolve and exceed industry standards. The Blue Oval's gold standard applies more than ever to the 2017 model.
Running on a 3.5-liter turbocharged V6, this F-150 cranks out a brawny 375 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque. When you pair that with its lightweight aluminum frame, you get a relatively fuel-efficient truck, which delivers 18 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway.
The Car Connection says that the front suspension of the 2017 model is a coil-on-shock independent arrangement, with a solid axle on leaf springs in back. There are also intermittently placed outboard shock absorbers to cut down on windup. All of this means that you enjoy a smooth ride free from body roll.
When tooling around town, the F-150 handles more like a finely-tuned large sedan than a gargantuan truck. This should come as welcome news to city dwellers who worry about navigating congested traffic and parking lots.
