Trim lines in the latest generation (2015–): 6

If you plan on loading up the backseat with passengers, we recommend you opt for the four-door model, which adds extra legroom for those at the back. The seating is comfortable and spacious and the front-row passengers can take advantage of Ford's user-friendly infotainment system. Comfort-driven add-ons include:
- Lumbar support
- Heated seating
- Leather trim
- Dual climate zones
The Ford F-150 has been around for over four decades, so it's fair to say that its safety and technology have significantly improved and adapted over the years. Models from 2008 onwards can expect quite a few standard safety features, such as:
- Driver and passenger airbags
- Daytime running lights
- Military-grade aluminum-alloy body
Newer vehicles come with optional brake assist and collision warning systems. Selecting higher trims gives you more advanced driver-assisted systems, such as overtaking sensors and a fatigue warning system.
Technology and infotainment
For those more interested in tech and connectivity, drivers can expect the full gamut of gadgets. Powered by Ford Sync technology, the F-150's infotainment screen gives you access to everything you need—music, weather, directions and phone—within easy reach. Other bells and whistles include:
Ford F-150 towing capacity
This Ford model is classified as a light-duty full-size pickup. It can load up to 3,270 lbs and the towing capacity on the most recent models is up to 13,000 lbs.
Drivers can choose the length of the bed in the Ford F-150 diesel gas trucks, from 5.5 ft to 8.5 ft. As a light-duty pickup, this makes it a perfect vehicle for hauling recreational vehicles and boats. Keep in mind that a truck this big tends to be a bit expensive at the pump.

How does the Ford F-150 drive?
The Ford F-150 has plush, comfortable seating, but you can expect a bit of jostling when driving over bumpy roads. Its independent front suspension allows for great handling and stability, even though drivers new to pickups will have to get used to maneuvering a heavy vehicle.
