New Tow Vehicle

My wife and I just purchased a new tow vehicle and wanted to share a photo with the group. The turning radius is fantastic and now we can upgrade our trailer in the future if our needs or desires change. It's a 2019 Ford F450 Lariat, 4x4, CCLB.

Congratulations, nice truck.

I hope you are upgrading. an F450 for that heritage glen ultra light tt that is probably 1/2 ton towable is a bit of overkill. If you have the cash to spend and that's your thing, good for you. Hope its not your daily driver. Good luck parking anywhere.

Not sure what your implying here. The man bought a nice truck. As far as driving and parking. Well I drive a F350 dually and do not have any problems parking it anywhere I need to. Daily driver, it gets much better fuel milage than the f150 I had and the Chevy 1500 before that. The F450 has a better turning radius than any of the trucks listed above...

Too the OP great truck and wish you well in your travels.

Our door sticker states 4,680 payload and the tow ratings say 21,000 conventional towing and 32,500 gooseneck/ 5th wheel towing.

Very nice looking truck. Am looking at 450’s myself, because of the turning radius as well.

I DD my F-350 CC LWB Dually in metro Atlanta. Towing a 7400lb trailer on the weekends.

Wish I had the turning radius of the F450.

I used my F-350 for a DD and never had a issue parking anywhere even my wife who is only 5ft tall and 110lbs loves to drive it. I wish I could afford a F-450 the turning radius would be a major plus.


To the op great looking truck enjoy the capabilities of the truck.
