The Ford F-150 truck - Built tough


Looking for a full-size pickup that can handle both your hauling and towing jobs without a whimper?

The ultimate work truck, the Ford F-150 can tow more than 11,000 pounds (more than any of its competitors) when properly equipped, and haul more than 3,000 pounds (a greater tow than every other truck in its class) with an impressive fuel economy ( EPA-Est. MPG City/Hwy: 17/23.)

More people depend on the F150 to get the job done than any other brand, based on a poll of U.S. light duty pickups, because it’s put under rigorous testing – the harshest real-world conditions  – before it’s ever allowed on the showroom floor.

The F-150 offers control and convenience whether towing a boat or trailer or hauling equipment to a job site. Depending on your needs, there’s an available factory-integrated trailer brake controller - TBC.

Do you take on steep grades and extreme slopes?   The F-150’s selectable tow/haul mode on the standard 6-speed automatic transmission compensates for altitude, grade and load.

Drivers can choose the Trailer Tow Package or the optional Max Trailer Tow Package with a special group of heavy-duty towing upgrades.

The F-150 is surrounded by a sturdy steel cage and features like the Safety Canopy® System with side-curtain airbags — helping earn the F-150 SuperCrew® models a 2013 Top Safety Pick from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

The F-150 offers a smooth, quiet ride, thanks to the Ford 720-degree approach to noise reduction through sound engineering. Its stiff frame and body, shear-style body mounts, door seals, Quiet Steel® (trademark of Material Sciences Corporation) and a noise-absorbing headliner all work together to reduce unwanted noise and vibration.
