Jimmy Fallon had only been the host of “The Tonight Show” for about three weeks when he sent the automotive industry into frenzy.
On the March 7 episode, Fallon declared that he wanted to spend one of his upcoming paychecks on a pickup truck. And as with so many things these days, this simple exchange got social media buzzing. Ford was the first automaker to tweet at Jimmy Fallon – offering him a 2015 F-150 King Ranch, which is yet to hit the open market – and it didn’t take long for American automakers Chevy and Chrysler to follow suit.
Since then, Fallon has narrowed his list of potential pickup truck purchases to four, including the new Ford F-150 King Ranch and F-150 Platinum editions. The Toyota Tacoma and Ram 1500 are also in the running.
Edmunds.com recently came out with some recommendations for Fallon, which included the F-150. Find out why it made the cut!
Update: Fallon selected the 2015 Ford F-150 King Ranch for his next vehicle purchase.
