Ford F-150

Ford F-150

The Ford F-150 is an excellent choice when you are looking for a dual purpose pickup truck that is capable of hauling heavy loads while remaining energy efficient. The Ford F-150 was first produced in 1975 as part of the F-series of pickups and was instantly accepted by a market hungry for a mid-grade heavy duty truck. This acceptance earned it the honor of becoming the best-selling vehicle in the United States for nearly two decades in the 1990s and 2000s, with over 15 million units sold in the United States alone since its debut.

Used Ford F-150 Owner Reviews

2010 Ford F-150

I bought a Platinum because of the amenities. I have never owned a vehicle in my life that I like better than this unit. Great service, no problems!

Model Overview

Over the years the Ford F-150 has been transformed and optimized for a sleeker, more aerodynamic appearance to look good both on city streets and country roads. With the introduction of the SuperCab, the truck can even have a back seat to fit extra passengers.

Truck buyers can find used Ford F-150 trucks in a wide selection of styles from short beds to long beds, SuperCab versions, and fully loaded vehicles. Maybe you are looking for a special edition such as the 1999 Ford Lightning with its souped up suspension and supercharger engine or the 2010 SVT Raptor, designed exclusively for off-road use. Look to base models for a good value in cost of ownership, or pay more to get deluxe versions such as the 2010 F-150 Platinum. For 2014, Ford offers 10 different F-150 styles, from the F-150 XL ($24,445 MSRP) all the way to the Platinum ($47,325 MSRP) and Limited ($50,405 MSRP). All of them include features such as a remote Keyless Entry System and AdvanceTrac® with Roll Stability Control™ (RSC®).

If you are looking for the ultimate expression of luxury and power in a work truck, the F-150 Limited offers 22" polished aluminum wheels, voice-activated technology, power-adjustable pedals with memory, and its now famous EcoBoost® engine for outstanding performance and great fuel economy.

Safety

All versions of the 2014 Ford F-150 include dual airbags, as well as side-curtain airbags for front and rear passengers. Stability controls and anti-lock brakes provide added safety benefits. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has given it a rating of "Good" on major safety concerns such as roof strength and head restraints and seats in a series of crash tests. Safety is always an important consideration when you are looking to buy a new or used car, and the F-150 has received numerous awards in this aspect, including "Top Safety Pick" from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety for its Safety in 2009.

To take advantage of the most recent design improvements, start your search with the 2009 model year when the F-150 received a major upgrade to its exterior with beefy grilles and new headlamps, as well as the reintroduction of the two door version and the removal of the four door models. By 2011, three new engines were added to the line as part of a company-wide focus on fuel economy.

Noteworthy About the Ford F-150

The F-150 is widely preferred by those looking for a truck that can carry large amounts of cargo (maximum 3,120 lbs.) while maintaining its enormous trailer towing capability (maximum 11,300 lbs.), without sacrificing performance and efficiency.

Even though it was originally created as a work truck, select F-150 trucks includes technology normally reserved for luxury vehicles, such as a rear view camera and a navigation system with SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link.

If you are concerned about towing large loads, the F-150 includes an Integrated Trailer Brake Controller (TBC), which synchronizes the vehicle and trailer brakes to provide control and confidence.

If you want to be a technology pioneer, next year you can buy the 2015 F-150 since Ford plans to build it using military-grade aluminum alloy in the frame and body to lose up to 700 pounds for fuel economy.

In short, the Ford F-150 is an excellent choice if you prefer a truck over a car but want to avoid emptying your wallet at the gas pump.
