My dad's looking for a "used, 2019 or newer F150 King Ranch or RAM 1500 Laramie Longhorn." I know fuck all about trucks. He'll use the bed for all manner of home improvement projects and might do some light towing. He's coming from the most bizarre mix of vehicles (2017 explorer sport, 2011-ish e63 AMG black) and tends to value having horsepower that he'll never use.

Advice?

edit: I appreciate any/all input but would prefer that you give me some ideas as to why you're picking one over the other, etc.

F-150 with any of the engine options but tbh the 3.5 ecoboost is where it's at 😍

FWIW, I'd probably take the ranger if it was me. :mamoru:
We finally got the Aussie Ranger and I think it looks great. You can get it with locking rear diff and a crew cab - for cruising to Home Depot and maybe a road trip, I think it checks a lot of boxes and is very very reasonable.

Will he think having a truck that sounds like an 89 Grand Am is not “manly?”

I think as long as it gets out of its own way he won't necessarily care. why?
Eco boosts are small V6s that don’t have the “manly” V8 sounds. They make great power when they get going. They are laggy off the line.
