Action movie star Dwayne Johnson, who is affectionately nicknamed “The Rock”, has a reputation for giving extravagant gifts to his loved ones. Recently, he continued to demonstrate his generosity by gifting his stuntman and cousin, Tanoai Reed, a large Ford F-150 pickup truck.
Tanoai Reed has been working as a stunt double for The Rock since 2002’s “The Scorpion King”. Over the years, he has suffered numerous injuries to bring exciting action scenes to life on the big screen. While recovering from an injury sustained on set, The Rock surprised Tanoai Reed with a Ford F-150 as a token of his appreciation.
The gift left Tanoai Reed overwhelmed with emotion and even brought him to tears. The Ford F-150 has a higher ground clearance than his previous car and features black rims with massive tires. The exterior is jet black with shiny chrome details, but the exact version and engine specifications are unknown.
The 2018 Ford F-150 in the US market comes in 7 different equipment versions with prices starting from 27,705 USD. There are also 6 different engine options available, including a 3.3-liter Ti-VCT petrol engine, a 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 gasoline engine, a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 gasoline engine, a 5.0-liter Ti-VCT V8 petrol engine, a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 gasoline engine, and a 3.0-liter Power Stroke V6 diesel engine.
This is not the first time The Rock has gifted cars to his loved ones. He previously bought a Cadillac Escalade for his father, a Lexus RX for his sister, and a Cadillac for his mother. He also gave a Ford Explorer to his father and a Ford F-150 to his uncle. Even his family maid Esperanza received a Ford Edge from The Rock as a thank you for 10 years of service.
Currently, The Rock is busy filming “Jungle Cruise” with actress Emily Blunt and also starring in the spin-off of the “Fast and Furious” series with Jason Statham. The movie will focus on the characters of Hobbs and Shaw, who are fan favorites from the franchise.
In conclusion, Dwayne Johnson’s generosity knows no bounds. His gift of a Ford F-150 to his cousin and stuntman Tanoai Reed is just one example of the many extravagant gifts he has given to his loved ones over the years.
