Agreed. Full-sizes just look so confused.
Really anymore what's the point of an F150? The price point on them would push me to buy an F250 and have a heavier duty truck to do truck stuff with which is what I would buy a full size truck for in the first place, sure wouldn't be a family sedan, that's what cars, crossovers, and SUV's are for LOL. A regular cab or extended cab F250 XL 4x4 long bed with the 7.3L V8 would be plenty for anything I'd ever need and about the same price as the F150 with all the rebates and such that Ford has been doing locally. I want a truck for truck stuff, not as a taxi LOL.

My credo
I work in fuel tanks for a living. Don't judge me!
For what it's worth. I have a small garage that has had both the 2011 and the 2019 parked into it. Length wise, it is a bit more of a squeeze getting past the front and back with the 2019 in the garage. Obviously, the 2019 is a bit wider but not hugely so. The driving experience between the two is almost not much different once you ignore the manual vs automatic. This is as far as turning radius, and where you can fit it. The ride is different but my 2011 doesn't have the stock suspension. There is a big difference between the two as far as rear visibility because of the taller bed sides and tailgate.
