Manufactured continuously since 1948, Ford’s F-series trucks have been bestsellers in the US and Canada for decades. The F-150 is pretty much the yardstick to which other trucks aspire to measure-up. US retail prices start at $26,730.

The vehicle comes with a choice of engines based on the need and application. Smallest of these is the 2.7 litre V6 with auto start/stop technology. When equipped with this engine, the vehicle can tow up to 8,500 lbs and carry up to 2,210 lbs of payload. The most common engine for the F-150 is the 3.5 litre EcoBoost with a 12,200 lbs maximum tow rating.

A new 10-speed automatic transmission features optimized wide-span gear spacing and drag-reduction actions for best in class towing capability and optimized highway fuel efficiency. Known for their durability, F-150s are put through 10 million miles of cumulative torture-testing. 78% of the vehicle’s box frame is made from high strength steel.
