The Ford F-150. In parking lot, on the highway, no matter where you go—look around. One vehicle you will consistently notice is the Ford F-150. This sales giant has been the best selling truck for the past 38 years, and remains the best selling vehicle in the United States for the past 32 years! Truly astounding figures that most manufacturers could only wish for. This week, Ford has given me the opportunity to try the latest generation.
This truck truly has a presence like no other. Starting from the front, chrome remains the focus point to introduce the legend coming down the road. Then, massive headlamps surround each side of the prominent chrome grill to set the motion of bold and aggressive cues that graduate to the rear. Stunning 20″ chrome wheels help to complete the silhouette with a level of class that doesn’t overlook the flat out aggressive nature. The F-150 then finishes off the rear with LED framed taillights that match the front bulbs with consistent perfection.
Driving this F-150 will truly make any driver feel like the king of the road, which shouldn’t be of any surprise since you are driving—well, the king of the road. The Ecoboost engine underneath the new aluminum hood delivers exceptional performance that meets and may exceed that of a V8, but does define the magic of efficiency by delivering impressive fuel efficiency with technologies like turbocharging, lightweight construction, and start/stop technology. Acceleration is impressive delivering the performance of a V8, with the efficiency of a true V6.
While the cabin was laid out in its lowest trim decoration, the cluster was quite easy to use with simplistic, intuitive controls. Space was ample for five full-size adults with plenty of additional room to customize versatility. The F-150 carries much of its technological innovation on the inside of the cabin, where a variation of the updated Sync is present that allows easy operation of controls and features.
The Ford F-150 will continue to break through and set new sales records for many years to come. Always ahead of the truck trend curve, Ford consistently sets the benchmark of truck with style, innovation, and advancement. The Ford F-series will remain a sales leader of the industry that will continue to retain its place of the king of the road. For more information, please visit the all-new Ford F-150 at ford.com.
