Why Ford F-150 Remains the Number 1 Selling Vehicle

F-150

Ford released the first Ford F-150 in 1948. Since then, the F-150 has positioned itself at the top of the vehicle market. Not only has it dominated the truck market for years, but this is a vehicle that Ford has managed to evolve into the great pickup truck that it is today. It’s now in its 13th generation. It’s aluminum construction paved the way for lighter vehicles (by almost 700 pounds). As the years go by, Ford focuses on different features that make the 150 more luxurious, more powerful, and durable. Regardless of what changed, the Ford F-150 remains the number one selling vehicle in the U.S.

Durability

When it comes to durability, few trucks on the market are as durable. It can easily achieve an accumulation of over 250,000 miles with minimal issues. The latest version went through 10 million miles of vehicle testing before Ford felt comfortable putting it up for sale on the market. It can handle the open road, going off the beaten path, and it can withstand long road trips.

Fuel Efficiency Ratings

In recent years, Ford has tried to pay close attention to the overall fuel efficiency of the F-150. Lightening the vehicle by about 700 pounds made a big difference in the ratings. The current engine is a 3.5-liter turbocharged EcoBoost engine. It achieves 365 horsepower with 420 pound-feet of torque. It can reach 19 miles per gallon for city driving and 26 miles per gallon on the highway. This is with the rear-wheel-drive powertrain feature.

Towing

If you’re looking to haul things or move them, the Ford F-150 pulls its weight, literally. You can tow a maximum of 8500 pounds with the 2.7-liter turbocharged V6 engine. Your towing abilities vary with the different engine options that are provided by Ford. If you’re looking to save money and don’t care much about the towing capability of your truck, you can downsize to save funds.
