Pilgrims are synonymous with Thanksgiving and the settling of America. In fact many of the Mayflower pilgrims have descendants in Cape May, New Jersey.
The adventurous spirit and sheer tenacity of the early individuals who crossed the Atlantic, is in the fabric of our country’s DNA. So the NJ Car Coupon team decided to figure out which reliable trucks and SUVs would fit the needs of the pilgrims that helped build a foundation for the United States.
So here’s a list of trucks that modern day pilgrims would love to use for their journeys:
1. 2014 Ford F-350 to Head Out From Plymouth Rock
The 2014 Ford F-350 would have been great for the early pilgrims. It’s huge bed and towing capacity could carry all of their supplies with ease. The interior cab is also pretty big, you could also imagine them hooking up a wagon or two to the back of this beast. But sadly during their own time, they were stuck with their horses and wooden wheels.
2. 2014 Chevrolet Silverado is Perfect for the Untamed West
The pilgrims didn’t quite make it all the way to New Mexico, but if they did the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado would have been ideal for their journey. This vehicle can easily pull weight over 5,000 pounds. The cabin is also quiet, which would allow for some solace during serious thunderstorms or downpours.
3. 2014 Honda Ridgeline Has No Issue Climbing Mountains
If the pilgrims made it past the Appalachian Mountain Range to the Rockies, they would definitely need the power behind the wheel of a 2014 Honda Ridgeline. Sporting a huge interior cabin on top of a spacious open bed for supplies, this is ideal for adventurous spirits like the original pilgrims.
4. 2014 Toyota Tundra Can Even Handle the Alaskan Frontier
Would the pilgrims have been interested in Alaska? Maybe not. But if they somehow made their way to America’s wildest state, they would need something big and reliable. The 2014 Toyota Tundra can handle more than 10,000 pounds of weight, meaning they would have no problem storing food for the harsh winter weather.
5. 2014 GMC Sierra Can Carve Through Any Terrain
The Sierra Nevada mountain range run for more than 400 miles from its northern and southern tip. Formed over 100 million years ago, the terrain is rugged and unapologetic. Pilgrims hoping to make it through the ancient environment would stick to the 2014 GMC Sierra. Weighing in at 4,567 lbs with up to 420 HP, the Sierra is a protective machine that will handle hostile raiders and wildlife.
