Default Crewcab F150 turning radius sucks

I've had my new crewcab for a week now. The turning radius just sucks. My old Chevy 2009 4 door turned a lot shorter.
Now when I pull into a parking spot , I've got to back up and try again. I hate it. Grrrrrrrrr

That's because your Chebby wasn't a real truck, it was a car with a bed.

That is funny, I traded my 2010 GMC Sierra crewcab, to a F-150 SCREW because the turning radiois sucked and could not park it & other reasons. I have not had one problem with the F-150 just zips right in to those parking spots.

If this was a concern, wouldn't it be a prime thing to check out on a test drive?

cmon postal, dont you know people here love to complain endlessly about stuff wrong with their truck that would have been easily identified by a test drive or popping the hood before they bought it

I drive a Chevy ext cab with an 8' box at work. I find that thing is a beast to park if you go front in. But I always to try and back in. makes it a lot easier.

With all honesty, I can't see any full sized screw having a great turing radius. If the only thing wrong with your F150 is the turing radius, then you and your truck are doing great....

In general chevys have shorter wheelbases. Shorter = better turning radius
