The Interior of the 2009 Ford F-150 Makes a Bold Design Statement

2009 Ford F-150

The first time I sat in the interior of the 2009 Ford F-150 a thought occurred to me. This is the first car I could actually live in. And that is really saying something when you consider the ill-fitting cheap plastic and mouse fur upholstery that made up the inside of the 1997-2004 model.

The beauty of the new F-150 is that regardless of whether you buy a top of the line King Ranch edition or the volume leader XLT the interior quality is entirely the same. As a matter of fact any model below the King Ranch might actually be preferable thanks to that models unfortunate orange/brown leatheralthough that color might really play well in places like Texas.

Starting at $21,380 there is an F-150 out there to suit any purse and purpose. My personal favorite is the Platinum edition with its jeweled chrome ringed speedometer/tachometer dials that are bathed in a soft blue light at night and its supple cinnamon colored leather. All of the textures and colors found in the interior are set off perfectly by an upright dashboard featuring silver chrome flying buttress style surrounds for the a/c and radio untis. This is less a car interior and more like a hip urban loft. Style has never been more macho.
