Frequently Asked Questions: The 2019 Ford F-150

If you find yourself wanting to join the family of Ford, there's no better introduction than the iconic Ford F-150. A stellar truck by every conceivable metric, the Ford F-150 is both sharp looking, durable, extremely capable, and is incredibly long-lasting. There's a reason you still see old Ford F-150 models on the road, and that you know someone with an aging Ford F-150 that still runs with prominent power; the Ford F-150 has put America on its back for generations.

Eight Most Frequently Asked Questions: The Ford F-150

1. Why are the Ford F-150's so Popular?: From the longevity, durability, and no-nonsense towing ability, the Ford F-150 has constantly delivered. You know the tremendous capability you receive when you go with Ford, as there's no second guessing when it comes to this powerful truck.

 

2. What are the Towing Capabilities of the Ford F-150?: The Ford F-150 when properly equipped has more towing capacity in both gas and diesel than anyone in its class. With a 3.5-liter EcoBoost® twin-turbo V6 gas engine, a conventional tow rating of 13,200 provides astonishing power. On the 2.0-liter Power Stroke® Turbo Diesel, a best in class towing rating of 11,400 pounds shows the muscle capability of a diesel engine.

 

3. What is the Best Ford F-150 Trim Level: Value is subjective for what determines "best"; however, the Platinum trim offers an outstanding High-Output 3.5-liter V6 EcoBoost® engine that comes with a roaring 450 horsepower and best-in-class* 510 pound-feet of torque. Further powerful features include a TwinPanel Moonroof (SuperCrew®), as well as a stylish design of satin, finish main bars and minor chrome bars, with sating finish surround and silver inserts.

 

4. What's the Difference between the Ford F-150 and the Ford F-250?: The main difference between the two has to do with the size and strength capability. As the Ford Super Duty is larger and has more capability with a maximum conventional towing capacity of 21,000 pounds and increased payload capacity. The Ford F-250 also comes with Trailer Reverse Guidance, a Trailer Tire Pressure Monitoring System, and Adaptive Steering.

5. Is the Ford F-150 All-Wheel-Drive?: The base trim of the Ford F-150 is not AWD. However, you can optionally add 4x4 capability very easily and within other trim levels. If you are looking for off-road capability, the Ford Raptor trim stands out, as well as customizable off-road packages.

 

6. What is the Ford F-150 EcoBoost?: The EcoBoost engine lineup is designed to optimize power and efficiency with direct gasoline injection and turbocharging technology. Hundreds of thousands of computer codes adjust to optimize your engine and transmission together with technology such as Twin-independent Variable Cam Timing, Turbocharged Performance, and Direct fuel Injection to deliver a powerful, yet fuel-conscious powertrain.

 

7. What does "XLT" mean?: The Ford XLT is a trim on the Ford F-150 lineup. It stands out from the base trim by the incorporation of available 17-inch silver painted aluminum wheels, a 3.3-liter Ti-VCT V6 engine, as well as a chrome, two-bar style grille with chrome nostrils and black surround.

 

8. Is the Ford F-150 expensive to maintain?: A Ford F-150 is known for its durability and longevity, meaning that the Ford F-150 was well engineered to perform for a long time. Of course, with longer life means more oil changes and tire rotations and such, but in terms of replacing avoidable damage, the Ford F-150 is not expensive to maintain.
