It has been decades that Ford’s F-150 has controlled the vehicle market. Year after year, it remains the number 1 selling vehicle in the United States. While changes have been made over the years to keep up with trends in the market, the F-150 somehow always has what people are looking for. The 13th generation of the F-150 is currently for sale. It has a lighter design than ever before, adding to its already impressive fuel efficiency ratings. It’s also a very affordable and durable vehicle.

Rugged and Tough

The price of a new vehicle can be staggering to many consumers these days. If you’re looking for something that will be a wise investment for years to come, you’ll love the F-150. Ford cares a great deal about the quality of vehicles that they sell. The current model of the F-150 has been through more than 10 million miles of vehicle testing. This testing was conducted to assess how certain parts would wear, what would be the first item on the vehicle to require maintenance and what needed repairs after frequent use. Parts were upgraded and re-tested to make sure they would stand up to the test of time.

Saving Money at the Pump

Fuel efficiency ratings are a very important part of manufacturing and designing vehicles these days. Ford ensured that their vehicle had power and towing capability, but they also wanted to make sure that it wasn’t going to cost crazy amounts of money to fill up at the gas pump each week. The aluminum body of the vehicle contributes to its lower weight. The most popular engine is a 3.5-liter turbocharged, EcoBoost engine that can accomplish 365 horsepower and 420 pound feet of torque. It has a rear wheel drive powetrain. The fuel ratings sit at 26 miles per gallon for highway driving and 19 miles per gallon in the city.

Towing Capabilities

The Ford F-150 has great towing ratings, and you can take this vehicle anywhere that the road takes you. The V6, 2.7 liter turbocharged engine can tow as much as 8500 pounds. You can save money by downgrading your engine options if you are on a tight budget. This is still a really affordable vehicle to invest in.
