The Ford F-150 Is The Best Truck On The Market
For another year in a row the 2020 Ford F-150 has won the best full-size truck of the year, and no one is surprised. So if you’re asking yourself whether or not the Ford F-150 is a good truck, the answer is quite simply, Yes!
How The Ford F-150 Stayed Number One
When you are comparing it to its competition, trucks like the Ram 1500 and the Chevy Silverado, it can be hard to understand why they simply aren’t keeping up with the Ford F-150. Though the Ram and the Chevy have received facelifts recently, cosmetic changes that have made them look more modern and sleek, this hasn’t really translated to the market as a whole.
The Ford F-150 has an aluminum alloy frame that strengthens its aluminum body in order to stay both lightweight and strong. Though aluminum can be more pliable, Ford increased the thickness of the frame in order to maintain its strong standard. But Ford kept going when it came to safety measures, and the Ford F-150 is a model for that, its BLIS trailer sovereign allows you to change lanes with blind-spot detection, with ease. That means that whatever you’re hauling is safe as well. On top of that there’s automatic emergency braking,adaptive cruise control, pre-collision prevention, and lane-keeping assistance. It also features an 8″ productivity screen behind the steering which allows you to monitor your trailer, braking system, and more to keep an eye on the load while en route.
The 2020 Ford F-150 entire design is about strengthening both their product, and their price while staying lightweight. Ford does this in the marketplace by starting the base model of the Ford F-150 with $28,745 MSRP, making it one of the most consumer friendly pricing options on the market. In addition to that, year after year the Ford F- 150 picks up points as one of the most highly reliable cars on the market. That reliability rating is top notch, year after year because of Ford’s initial investment in its design, and honestly not fixing what isn’t broken.
This award-winning truck comes with six different engine options, that allow consumers to meet their exact desires, and pick a truck that genuinely suits them. For those that are focused on being environmentally conscious they might choose the three liter V6 engine, but if someone is looking for that Ford toughness then they need look no further than a five liter V8 engine that pushes 395 horsepower and over 390 pounds of torque. With this amount of car underneath them, drivers can tow close to 12,000 lbs.
With that being said it's important to know that when comparing the Ford- F150 to models in its class, the Ram and the Silverado, can only pull close to seven thousand pounds. It just simply isn’t a competition. The differences don’t just stop there, The Ford F-150 has incredibly skid plates, and has 9, yes 9, off road driving modes. Again, it doesn’t just stop there, the hill descent control, and the electronic rear differential are both top notch, only being added to by it’s 360 degree camera view that helps in every imaginable off road, and parking dilemma.
