We know this sounds a bit facetious but when you consider the Long Island lifestyle at large, a truck starts to make sense even if you’re not a builder, landscaper or boating enthusiast. A truck is the way to get every kind of work done–better, faster and more efficiently.

The all-new 2015 F–150 is the truck to get: Up to 700 lbs. lighter than the 2014 model, thanks to a military grade, aluminum-alloy body and steel frame, the new F–150 has better fuel efficiency, greater towing and payload capacities plus improved power-to-weight ratio for faster acceleration, enhanced handling and braking.
