Cargo Capacity Ranked 1978 Ford F-150 better.
"The largest load I had in the F-150 was roughly a full chord. (5,000lbs). The Prius could barely haul the toilet I bought."
Family Car Ranked 1978 Ford F-150 better.
"The Toyota Prius could not make it to my house, got stuck on the way. F-150 cared not about the road conditions but just went, no questions asked."
