It’s no secret, pickup trucks are big business. These outsized vehicles can sell for luxury-car prices and in the process bring in bucket-loads of cash for their manufacturers. But are they worthy replacements for highfalutin’ automobiles?

That’s up to YOU to decide because in today’s poll we’re pitting the Ford F-150 Limited against the sumptuous Audi A6. Which is better? Which one would YOU rather drive? Good question us!

The F-150 offers four different engines including a base V6 and a thunderous 5.0-liter V8, but this truck’s most potent propulsion unit is a 3.5-liter, twin-turbocharged V6 that puts out 365 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque. It’s matched to a six-speed automatic transmission, the only gearbox offered.

Of course, this built- Ford-tough truck isn’t just a capable workhorse, it’s also surprisingly luxurious, especially in Limited trim. This model comes standard with niceties including heated rear seats, a gigantic moonroof, blind-spot monitoring, trailer backup assist and much, much more.

As for the Audi, it features all the luxury amenities you’d expect, things like a driver-information system, satellite radio, Bluetooth connectivity and more. Up-level models gain navigation, multiple USB ports and an integrated jukebox feature to name a handful of extras.

The top engine offering in the standard A6 is a 3.0-liter supercharged V6 with direct fuel injection. This arrangement puts out 333 horsepower and 325 lb-ft of torque. That’s enough to propel this all-wheel-drive steed to 60 miles an hour in just 5.1 seconds.

So, there you go. We’ve stated the case for both the F-150 and Audi A6, all that’s left is for you to pick a favorite. Which of these luxurious vehicles would you rather own? Vote down below to let your voice be heard!

    I didn't answer poll, because I couldn't figure out which question was asked; the one in the first paragraph (which vehicle I'd rather drive? my answer is Audi A6); or, if the question is the one asked in the last paragraph (which one would a rather own? my answer is F150), however, I'd much, much prefer to own the F150 that I've got, which is a standard cab, 2wd, short bed with the lowest trim level and more modern, more economical, new 2.7L Ecoboost with 375 lb-foot peak torque at 3000RPM for only $27.5 K and 24 mpg real world.
