Football is not just a form of sports entertainment. It’s also a symbol of Americana. Do you know what else has the Stars and Stripes written all over them? Ford vehicles. This is why they make the perfect vehicle for a tailgating party at a stadium parking lot after a game.

We believe the 2018 Ford F-150 is the top tailgating vehicle, and that is not just our opinion. The pickup truck was listed by Edmunds as among the top 10 best cars for tailgating.

The truck’s bed capacity varies depending on the trim and/or add-ons. The capacity for the standard model, though, can carry up to 3,300 pounds in the bed and tow up to 12,200 pounds. That is more than enough for all the essentials, such as a full-size backyard grill, propane tanks, coolers, and all the food and preparation materials.

You can also look up our Ford parts near Sacramento, CA. Add-ons include a built-in ramp at the foot of the bed. This makes it easy to load and unload heavier items like the grill without relying on too much muscle power.

Other good vehicles for tailgating include the 2017 Ford Explorer. The crossover has 80-square-feet of storage space if you include the rear seating area. You won’t be able to fit a full-size grill, but you’ll be able to tote along a portable model and everything else while also bringing the whole family along.

If you want to be the life of the party after a game, then stop by Folsom Lake Ford to check out models fit for bringing along all the tailgating essentials. You definitely can’t go wrong with any of the Ford F-series trucks.
