When it comes to trucks, the Ford F-150 is synonymous with quality. This vehicle has long led the market in power, carrying capacity and off-road capability, and Ford continues to expand its abilities each year with new technology and designs. Whether you plan to use it for work, travel, or play, the Ford F-150 offers many great features.
A Light But Fortified Frame
The Ford F-150's body balances strength and efficiency, providing a sturdy protective structure that does not weigh down the vehicle. Recent models use hardened aluminum alloy for the body, reducing the weight by 700 pounds. The underlying frame is made of high-strength steel, providing maximum protection against road debris and other vehicles.
Enhanced Engine Technology
The standard F-150 has a 3.3L TiVCT engine that provides 290 horsepower and 265 pounds per foot of torque. It can hold between 23 and 26 gallons in a single gas tank depending on the trim and comes with automatic engine-start technology. It also has six transmission speeds, including a Sport Mode and a Tow/Haul Mode. In the latter mode, the F-150 can tow up to 8,500 pounds. The truck's 10 speed automatic transmission was co-developed with General Motors. It has six clutches and four planetary gearsets that will make it run even faster and even more capable of riding on rough terrain.
The Ford F-150 offers a striking, imposing appearance, with its black, dual-bar grille, halogen headlamps and pronounced hood. It also comes with 17-inch silver steel wheels and is available in 14 colors, including Blue Jeans, Magma Red and Lead Foot Grey. Other notable features include black front fascias, halogen tail lamps, black bezel handles and optional LED mirror spotlights.
No matter how harsh the surrounding environment, you always can count on the F-150 to provide comfort. The truck comes with plush cloth seats, a Single Zone climate-control system, a black urethane steering wheel, deployable cupholders and black vinyl floor covering. Optional features for further comfort and convenience include weatherproof rubber floor mats, a MyKey entry system, an overhead console and power door locks. For safety, the truck has standard tire-pressure monitoring, curve control, stability control, antilock brakes, air bags and safety belts.
