The ss is wide and low. The stance is beautifully aggressive. Over a glass of johnny walker blue, it dawned upon me that every time I leave my house I'm faced with a decision. I can go the wrong way down the street or make a very irritating u-turn. Now in my f-150 every u-turn ends up being a three point turn. Have any of you gentlement seen the ss make a u-turn??? I don't care how cool you think you are, at the moment your u-turn becomes a three point turn YOU ARE THE WORLDS WHIPPING BOY! Someone please confirm that the slingshot has a nice tight turn radius. If you've read all this, then you're a trooper and I'm proud of you.

Don't worry everyone gets a good laugh watching me fumble around in my truck. When there's snow on the ground I drift every u-turn.

The Ford F-150 is and has been the world's best selling vehicle for almost 30 consecutive years.... so you're in good company with the turning frustrations.

Same problem with my Chev double cab long bed. I plan my route out before I leave the house. Wife hates driving the truck and avoids it like a plague.

One of the first things I checked. The SS turning radius was 2 feet shorter than my 3 series Bimmer so it's gonna be ok.

And I assume that was without drifting the rear tire :)

Thanks for that! Doing a little research I've found the turn radius of the SS is about the same as a Honda Civic. Which is to say very tight. Of course we are all going to master the Hollywood u-turn. That's just a given. It's just nice to know that even tight city streets will be easily navigated.
