Why Buy a Ford F-150

Why Buy a Ford F-150 at Auction Direct

The Ford F-150 has come a long way from its early days, back when it was a no-fuss workhorse. Today, the Ford F-150 has evolved into a versatile pickup that is being offered in a wide range of trim levels to cater to different drivers. It has remained to be a best-selling vehicle in the US for over three decades now.

Why is the Ford F-150 so popular?

In 2015, the Ford F-150 got a new look with aluminum panels and steel clad frame, unlike any other full-size pickup truck in the market. The aluminum used in the F-150 gives it a lighter frame, which combined with the turbocharged engines offer a sound fuel efficiency. The aluminum alloy is nearly as strong as steel, only lifts pounds off the overall mass. The result is better mileage, handling and driving experience.

Typically, truck owners only want vehicles that can deliver, and if it fails, there are a host of other full-size truck models to pick from. The reason why the Ford F-150 has been the best-seller for years in the pickup truck segment, and cars, in general, is because the automaker has ensured that the quality standards don’t disappoint. The versatility and numerous variants offered under the F-150 series means that it can cater to the needs of many drivers. The Ecoboost V6 engine offers wider torque curves with resilient power, making it suitable for towing and efficient performance.

The Ford 2016 F-150 is here

The truck can haul nearly 3,300 lbs payload, and has a towing capacity of up to 12,100 lbs. It also packs some good technology under the hood- such as the lane-keeping system, trailer hitch assist, 360-degree camera, trailer backup assist and SYNC3.
