6 terrific cars for a tailgate party
Ford F-150 SuperCrew FX2
  • Ford F-150 SuperCrew FX2

  • Price: $41,035
  • Cost of options: $3,830
  • Gas mileage: 16 mpg city/22 mpg highway

Making a few compromises could reduce the price of our F-150 pick by a few thousand, but why not go for the whole enchilada?

The bulk of our options' cost went for the luxury package, adding a range of goodies including rear-parking sensors, backup camera, power sliding rear window and auxiliary audio input jack.

Because of its thrust and solid fuel economy, Bankrate opted for the 365-horsepower, 3.5-liter twin-turbo EcoBoost V-6, adding $1,095 to the bottom line. A six-speed, driver-shiftable automatic transmission funnels output to the rear wheels.

For people who approach a tailgate party as though they are going camping, nothing beats a pickup truck. The FX2 sweetens the pot with a side step for easier cargo access, Ford's voice-activated Sync and a 110-volt household-like power outlet.
