If someone asked you what the best-selling vehicle in America is you would probably think of a Japanese-made economy car or maybe a cultural icon like the Ford Mustang. Among all the cars, SUVs and crossovers being manufactured today, the one with the most sales in the U.S. is a truck: the Ford F-150. Ford F-150 is the best-selling vehicle in America and has been for the past three decades.
The designers at Ford struck a chord with truck buyers with the Ford F-150 and quickly learned that by making it available in a wide range of combinations of drivetrains, body styles, bed lengths, and trim levels, it would have a wide appeal among truck buyers. Ford has made sure throughout its history that the Ford F-150 offers the best towing ratings, the latest in technology, and some of the most fuel-efficient powertrains of all full-size pickups on the market today.
If you're looking for a truck that is able and willing to work harder than any other truck, you've got to check out the Ford F-150. Thanks to its light-weight, yet strong exterior body, the Ford F-150 is capable of delivering top-of-the-line towing capability, while improving on fuel efficiency. Speaking of fuel efficiency, the F-150 boasts multiple EcoBoost® engines that have been meticulously designed to maximize on efficiency, without skimping out on any power. Take the 3.5L EcoBoost for example. With this capable engine, you'll be able to tow loads of up to 12,200 pounds and receive an EPA-estimated 11 percent higher fuel-efficiency rating than other engines.
Towing is the only thing that the Ford F-150 is good at. Thanks to the high-strength, military-grade, aluminum-alloy body as well as the steel frame, the F-150 is capable of hauling a larger payload than any other truck in its class. Because the aluminum alloy is more resistant to dents and corrosion than the materials used in other truck beds, you won't need to worry about your box getting beat up when you're hauling that pile of gravel out to the job site. When properly equipped, you're sure to enjoy the best-in-class 3,270 pounds of payload the F-150 offers.
In addition to being one of the strongest trucks on the market, the Ford F-150 is also one of the more technologically advanced. Full of features that have been designed to make everything from running to the store, to backing up your trailer easier, you'll be hard-pressed to find a smarter truck than the F-150. Speaking of backing up your trailer, the available Pro Trailer Backup Assist™ feature helps to make sure you backup like a professional each and every time you've got the trailer hitched on. Simply turn the steering knob left or right, and your trailer will go exactly where you want it to go without having to driv forward and then back a couple times.
Another great technology available on the Ford F-150 is the 360-degree camera with a split-view display. By making use out of four different cameras placed around the truck, you'll receive a bird's-eye view of the area around you as you backup, park, or drive out of any parking spots. The four cameras stitch together their images to show you everything that is happening on each side of your vehicle so you'll know exactly how close you are to the curb, to the car behind you, and even to the car in front of you. The camera even provides you with a line-of-sight guide to help you hitch your ball to the trailer.
