Top 3 Trucks For Tailgating | Fort Wayne, IN

Tailgating is a uniquely American tradition based off two uniquely American things: football and pickup trucks. The Chevy Silverado 1500, Ford F-150, and Ram 1500 are three trucks whose beds and tailgate functions will assist you in having the best setup for pre-game eats, drinks, and camaraderie.

Ford F-150

Go to any pre-game parking lot and you’ll find plenty of Ford F-150s occupying the spots, as the F-150 has been the country’s best-selling vehicle for nearly 40 years. Ford trucks are tough, durable, and provide you with a bed and hauling capabilities that will help in any job. Haul up to 3,300 pounds in the F-150, and ensure that you won’t be leaving anything behind for the big game.

Easy and quick access to the bed is vital at a tailgate party, whether you’re looking to replenish drinks or grab the cornhole set. Ford Integrated Tailgate Step has been offered for many years. It’s a spring-loaded ladder step that extends downward from the top of the tailgate, and a vertical handle car telescopes upward from the top for a safe and easy ascent into the bed.

Ram 1500

The innovative Ram Multifunction tailgate has football and truck enthusiasts everywhere excited. Side-swinging 60/40 doors get you as close to the bed as possible for easy loading and unloading. A class-exclusive air suspension lowers your Ram so kids can go in and out of the bed safely. Factory-applied waterproofing keeps it safe from rain and spills.

Chevy Silverado 1500

The Chevy Silverado 1500 is another excellent option for weekend tailgates. 2,280 pounds of maximum payload capacity means nothing is off the table for the party. Get ready for the game with built-in rear bumper steps for smooth bed access. Power-operated retractable running boards provide a quick and simple path from the bed to the cab.

You can find all of these useful trucks at Tom Kelley stores.
