More popular than Ford's historically iconic Model T and as muscular as a Mustang, the F-150 makes an ideal die-hard work truck or trail bashing pre-runner, yet seems equally adept as a country club cruiser or police pursuit-rated pickup. That's why a new F-150 is sold every 34.5 seconds; because it does whatever asked of it. 

Sizing one up

You have a choice of three cabs: a traditional Regular Cab with two doors and no space behind the seats, a SuperCab with small rear doors and folding rear jump seats and a SuperCrew with four full-size doors and a full-size back seat (seen above). Regular and SuperCabs come with a 6.5-foot or 8-foot bed, while the SuperCrew is available with a 5.5-foot or 6.5-foot bed. 

Regular Cabs are available in solely in XL and XLT trim. SuperCabs offer more choice, with XL, XLT, Lariat, and Raptor trims. SuperCrews are finished in higher-end King Ranch, Platinum, Limited, or Raptor trims.

Ground clearance ranges from 8.4 inches to 9.4 inches depending on model.

What's under the hood

The base F-150 powerplant is a 3.3-liter V-6 with 290 horsepower and 265 foot-pounds of torque. It's standard on the XL and XLT, except for the SuperCab with an 8-foot bed or SuperCrew with a 6.5-foot bed, which get a twin-turbocharged 2.7-liter EcoBoost V-6 producing 325 horsepower and 400 foot-pounds of torque with rear-wheel drive, or a 5.0-liter V-8 rated at 395 horsepower and 400 foot-pounds of torque with four-wheel drive. A twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6, rated at 375 horsepower and 470 foot-pounds of torque, and a Power Stroke 3.0-liter turbocharged V-6 diesel engine rated at 250 horsepower and 440 pound-feet of torque are optional.

Lariats come with the twin-turbocharged 2.7-liter EcoBoost V-6, except for the SuperCab with an 8-foot bed or SuperCrew with a 6.5-foot bed with four-wheel drive, which gets the 5.0-liter V8. The twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6, and Power Stroke 3.0-liter turbocharged V-6 diesel are optional.

King Ranch and Platinum F-150s get the 5.0-liter V8 standard; the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 and 3.0-liter Power Stroke V6 Turbo Diesel are optional.

Limited models have the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 as standard equipment, while Raptors get a high-output version of the same engine.

All F-150s equipped with gasoline engines run on regular unleaded except the Raptor, which requires premium unleaded. In addition, the 3.3-liter V-6 and 5.0-liter V-8 are E85 capable.

A ten-speed automatic gearbox is standard except the 3.3-liter V-6, which has a six-speed automatic transmission. The ten-speed comes with selectable Normal, Tow-Haul, Snow-Wet, EcoSelect, and Sport drive modes.

Test Drive a Ford F-150

Maneuvering the F-150 is easy

Thanks to Ford's new Pro Trailer Backup Assist, backing up with a trailer is as easy as pie. Put the F-150 in reverse, and four exterior cameras provide a 360-degree view around the vehicle. Now, with hands off the wheel and watching a dashboard-mounted screen, the driver turns a knob on the dashboard in the direction they want the trailer to go. The truck does the rest. How easy is that? And if you need to parallel park without a trailer, the truck can help the most-inept driver park this pickup effortlessly.

The inside story of the F-150

When it comes to choosing your F-150, you'll find it fills a wide variety of needs.

If you're a traditionalist when it comes to pickups, the XL is the old school, barebones, no-frills work truck with a split front bench seat, vinyl floor covering, manual everything, and a rearview camera. Yet it's not all penance on the XL. You can add a 4.2-inch infotainment screen, a USB port, cruise control, and a 4G Wi-Fi- modem.

The XLT adds convenience without being profligate. So there are standard power goodies, interior carpeting, Sync 3 with an 8-inch touchscreen, Apple Car Play, Android Auto, USB ports and a more extensive option list. If you don't like plowing through a long options list, just choose the Lariat, which makes the XLT's options standard. And you'll also have access to some luxurious options.

If that's not opulent enough, gun for the King Ranch, a truck built with a Texas twist and a boatload of standard and optional gear. If you're an urbanite, you'll want the Platinum, the King Ranch's townie cousin. It has the same stuff, but it's designed to be more comopolitan. Or, if you're truly a hedonist and not afraid to admit it, select the Limited. Aside from the previously mentioned free-standing options, everything is standard. 

Finally, there's the Raptor, which is a different animal entirely. More Baja than Bel Air, this is a trail-ready beast. It gets a number of unique trim details and a driveline that includes Normal, Baja, Rock Crawl, Sport, Mud-Sand, Wet-Snow and Tow-Haul terrain management modes to help get you through anything.
