MARKHAM, Ontario (September 15, 2010) – The following is an except from AutoBlog’s review of the 2011 Ford F-450 Lariat, specifically the section about the Multimatic engineered and supplied Tailgate Step.
“While we didn’t have an opportunity to test this F-450 with a trailer, we did load it up for a trip to the local township compost site. With several hundred pounds of old lumber and building materials in the back, we didn’t even make a dent in the 5,000 pound payload capacity. Nonetheless, the utility of a pickup with an eight-foot bed is hard to deny.
And with a truck this tall, the optional tailgate step should be standard equipment.
Trust us – tick the box..“
