Tough as nails, and as versatile as a Swiss Army knife, the new Ford F-150 is a wholly satisfying full-size pickup truck that combines stamina and might with surprising levels of interior refinement, and the newest wave of technology updates.
Standing out amongst a seat of pickup trucks is largely a numbers game; fortunately, it's a game in which the F-150 just so happens to dominate. Looking for a rig to haul the family camper, boat, or set of equipment? The F-150 has a max towing capacity of 12,200 pounds--that's more than enough for the majority of truck shoppers' needs. As for payload--well, this Ford truck doesn't disappoint in that regard either, capable of transporting up to 3,270 pounds.
Perhaps the most buzz-worthy figure when it comes to the new Ford F-150 is 700--that is, 700 pounds shed, thanks to its high-strength, military-grade aluminum alloy body. This weight savings is of significance not only because it allows the new rig to achieve seriously impressive fuel economy ratings--the highest gas mileage in its class to be precise, with an EPA estimated rating of 19 city MPG and 26 highway MPG for a combined EPA average of 22 MPG--but because this weight savings allowed the engineers at Ford to invest that weight elsewhere in the truck's design, allowing for a stronger, tougher, more heavily reinforced frame.
We've said it before and we'll say it again: Ford knows that when it comes to its F-Series of pickup trucks, there's a distinct difference between worker harder and working smarter. The Ford F-150 has clearly proven that it's got the muscle, but with the wealth of cutting-edge technology features it brings to the table, Conroe, Willis, and Porter area drivers will see it has the brains on tap, as well.
A few stand out features in our opinion include Pro Trailer Backup Assist™ which vastly simplifies every trailering endeavor, class-exclusive Active Park Assist, Curve Control which works to automatically reduce your speed when cornering too quickly, and BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with Cross-Traffic Alert.
