It's only natural that an all-American truck would be the front runner in the vehicle market here in the U.S., but the Ford F-150 has stood out for years now. Ford doesn't sit back and let their vehicles remain the same each year. This is the 13th generation of the F-150. Over the years, there have been exterior design changes, engine options added, technology advanced, and much more. The current model lineup has six different trim levels to choose from. What's the secret behind the best-selling F-150? Let's take a closer look.

Interior Design and Features

You won't be disappointed in all the features that the F-150 comes jam-packed with. For starters, the interior doesn't look anything like you would expect from a truck. This is a high-end interior that you'd see for something like a sedan. Up to 6 people can sit in the SuperCab and SuperCrew models. There is a flip-up rear seat standard in the SuperCab and SuperCrew models. You can choose from vinyl or leather upholstery. The feature of front bucket seats, power-adjustable front seats, heated front seats, heated rear seating, massaging front seating, and a heated steering wheel are all available as well.

Safety Features

There is a lot of size and weight to the F-150, which means that it's a very safe vehicle overall. Of course, you get airbags throughout the vehicle, but you'll also stay safe thanks to driver stability control, antilock brakes, trailer sway correction control, and traction control. A top-of-the-line 360-degree camera allows you to see everything that is going on around your vehicle. You can easily avoid other vehicles, pedestrians, and items on the road. In case you miss something, blind-spot monitoring technology will alert you if there is something or someone in one of your hard-to-see spots.

Towing Capacity

Whether you need to tow a trailer, a camper, or a couple of Skidoos, there is plenty of power under the hood of all the Ford F-150 trim levels. The base engine provides 282-horsepower thanks to a 3.5-liter. You also get 253 ft-lbs of torque. This provides a maximum tow rating of 7,600 pounds. You'll be able to haul just about anything with this vehicle. The 5.0-liter V8 engine provides 385 horsepower and 387 ft-lbs of torque. You can tow a maximum of 3,300 pounds with this engine.
