While some competing models are strapped with outdated interiors with lower-quality materials, Ford's focus on In-Car Technology and luxury shines through, even at the lower trim levels (read more in Ford’s In-Car Technology Guide). But Ford trucks are all about years of servitude without so much as a complaint, with scores of older gems now counting their mileage in the hundreds of thousands. Fuel efficiency has improved considerably, especially with the outstanding EcoBoost V6 engine.
When shopping for a full-size truck, you may find that another manufacturer’s offerings appeals to you more for one reason or another, but give the Ford F-150 a test drive. You owe it to yourself to see what everyone's been raving about since 1948, when the first humble F-Series lumbered off of the assembly line.
