For the past three decades, the FordF-150 has been the best-selling vehicle in America. This comes as no surprise to those who have owned an F-150 and experienced its power, dependability, and capability. The F-150 has frequently been lauded by industry experts, achieving awards such as Motor Trend’s “Truck of the Year,” Edmunds’ “2015 Top Rated Vehicle” and “2015/16 Most Popular Vehicle and Large Truck,” and U.S. News and World Report’s “Best Full-Size Truck for the Money” of 2017. It also was named the “Best Full-Size Pickup Truck” by Car and Driver in both 2016 and 2017.
Buying a pre-owned Ford F-150 comes with all the power and performance the F-150 line is known for. Even on a budget, you should always be able to find the superior mechanical construction, dependability, and durability you need in an F-150.
As of 2015, the Ford F-150 has a lightweight aluminum body alongside a high-strength steel frame. Previous versions of the F-150 had a body made out of high-strength steel that made it 700 pounds heavier. Its new, lighter weight increases efficiency without sacrificing strength, though it is notable that previous models still had admirable efficiency. There is a wide variety of both cab sizes and bed sizes on offer, which can be combined in the way best suited to your needs. The cab styles include Regular, with two doors, SuperCab, with four doors, and SuperCrew, with extended four doors. Regular and SuperCab trucks can be paired with either a 6.5- or 8-foot bed, while SuperCrew cabs can be equipped with a 5.5- or 6.5-foot bed.
Beginning in 2009, the exterior of the F-150 was redesigned to look sleeker and more modern. Although these changes don’t add much more functionality, they add more style to your ride. Ford also updated the interior during the 2009 model year, making it even more durable and technologically-advanced.
The F-150 has a long history of powerful engines. The most recent model year offers five innovative engines that are all equipped with Auto Start-Stop Technology in order to optimize fuel efficiency. The engines also feature variable cam timing and direct injection and are paired with a smooth six-speed automatic transmission. The F-150 also typically offers various selectable driver modes (such as Tow-Haul and Sport). F-150s come with either V6 or V8 engines, some of which can achieve up to 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque. In the 12th generation of F-150s (2009-2014), Ford released the twin-turbocharged EcoBoost® engines, making the 3.7-liter V6 the baseline. A similar but newer engine became standard for the 2018 F-150: a 3.5-liter V6 engine that offers 282 horsepower and 253 lb-ft of torque. You can rely on Ford’s current and previous engines in terms of strength and performance, so having an older model year shouldn’t be much of a sacrifice.
For many years, the Ford F-150 has won such accolades as best-in-class towing, payload, and torque. The current top V8 engine has a towing capacity of 8,900 pounds, which goes up to 10,800 pounds with available enhanced axles, and the top EcoBoost® engine offers a remarkable towing capacity of 12,200 pounds. The F-150 has always been known for its towing and hauling capabilities, so you can’t go wrong no matter which model year you choose.
For the past twenty years, Ford has steadily been innovating and making improvements on the F-150, slowly refining it and making it better and better. However, these improvements started from a place of dominance—the F-150 has always been finely-engineered and long been the best-selling vehicle in America. Come into Mama's Used Cars to see the F-150s we have on offer. You’ll be impressed by the top-notch quality and capability present in all of them.
