Fall is here, and that means a lot of things. First and foremost, it means it's time again for football! Whether you're cheering on the Heber Springs Panthers, the Arkansas Razorbacks, or the ASU Red Wolves, one of the best things about football is the tailgate party beforehand.

While we do love the beautiful, capable Ford F-150 here at Heartland Ford of Heber Springs, we believe a case can be made that the Ford F-150 is unquestionably, unmistakably, indubitably the ultimate tailgating machine! Don't believe us? Read on for our top six reasons the 2019 Ford F-150 is the ultimate tailgater! And when you're ready to really go long for the win, stop in at Heartland Ford of Heber Springs for a test drive, or check out our big selection of 2019 Ford F-150 models online right now.

1) SEATING FOR SIX: Tailgating alone is like listening to Hank Williams alone: you can do it, but it's not nearly as much fun as doing so in large groups. When you're heading to the tailgate, feel free to bring along enough friends to paint GO HOGS on your bare bellies thanks to the 2019 Ford F-150's stellar interior space, with comfortable seating for up to six adults

2) BEST-IN-CLASS TOWING: We don't know about you, but every time we go tailgating, we wind up looking like the Joads heading for Californee what with all the stuff we have to bring along. Whether you're towing a big ol' smoker, a trailer or an RV to the tailgate, the 2019 Ford F-150 can take it all in stride thanks to a best-in-class conventional tow rating of up to 13,200 pounds. That's a lot of baby back ribs!

3) CLASS-EXCLUSIVE PRO TRAILER BACKUP ASSIST: It can get pretty tight at the tailgate with all the fans trying to bring their stuff in, requiring an incredible amount of skill, experience and precision if you've got to back up a trailer when space is at a premium. That, or you can look like a pro with the Ford F-150's first-of-its-kind Pro Trailer Backup Assist, which can turn you from a tailgate zero to a tailgate hero by making backing up a trailer with pinpoint precision as easy as turning a knob on the dash.

4) LOADS OF STORAGE: Nothing is worse than getting to the tailgate and realizing you forgot something crucial. Next time, feel free to bring everything but the kitchen sink thanks to the 2019 Ford F-150's acres of in-vehicle storage, including a flow-through console big enough to conceal a full-size laptop, and a fully flat rear floor in SuperCab and SuperCrew models, with copious under-seat storage.

5) A TAILGATE READY TAILGATE: While other truck makers are focused on making their trucks do parlor tricks like the tailgate splitting in half (seriously: who needs that?) Ford Engineering is all about making trucks that can actually work for a living. With that in mind, the 2019 Ford F-150 offers the most useful cargo box in the industry, with available LED lighting, stowable loading ramps, an integrated tailgate step with lift-assist, and class-exclusive deployable box side steps, for a tailgating home base that just won't quit.

6) JUST LOOK AT IT!: Ford's F-Series trucks have been the best-selling truck in America for an incredible 41 years straight, and a big part of that is F-150's style. While you should never judge a book by its cover, the F-150 is definitely one great looking book! Whether you roll up in the latest F-150 FX4, the luxurious 2019 F-150 Limited, or the iconic Ford F-150 Raptor, you're going to be the focus of some serious tailgate envy. Pick one in eye-catching Race Red, and you can tailgate at both Razorback games and Heber Springs Panther games while showing your Razorback/Panther pride.

We've only scratched the surface on why the 2019 Ford F-150 is the ultimate gridiron tailgater. If you're ready for kickoff, stop in today at Heartland Ford of Heber Springs for a test drive, or head for the digital end-zone and check out our full selection online at our website right now.
