Featured Ford: The F-Series

The Ford F-Series pickup truck has a long and wonderful history. Today, it is the best selling vehicle in the United States and has been for many years. But what exactly is the F-Series?

The simple answer is that it's a series of similar Ford trucks sharing the same name, but the truth is much more complicated. There are many different tiers to the Ford F-Series line, each growing in size and power, payload, towing capacity, purpose, and overall drivability. If you are in the market for new trucks, it is important to know these distinctions, so let's take a look.


The baby of the group is also the most widely known model of Ford truck ever made. It is a medium duty pickup that has a payload of 3,270 pounds and can tow a whopping 13,200 pounds. As a best in class truck, it's no wonder those numbers are so high. You have rugged engineering and a 3.5 liter EcoBoost V6 to thank for that impressive capacity.


While this baby used to only be able to haul 7,000 pounds, the 2018 model can now tow 21,000 lbs, and it has a payload of 7,630. Impressive gains to say the least. Innovative technology has helped this full-size truck to flourish and become a favorite amongst those with more powerful needs.


The 6.7L Power StrokeĀ® V8 Turbo Diesel in the F-350 produces a more than respectable 450 horsepower, but the low down grunt of 935 pound-feet of torque takes the prize for mind-boggling statistic. Add to that, the max torque is developed at only 1800 rpm making this perfect for standing starts with heavy loads.


This is where we start to unload the big guns. The F-450 can tow up to 31,200 pounds and comes in a series of different specs. The fact is, if you want a physically imposing, unstoppable, powerful truck, this might be the pinnacle of performance for you.

Whichever truck in the F-Series line you choose, you will be happy with the unparalleled strength and toughness you receive.  If you are looking for the best new trucks you can find, stop by your local Ford dealerships for a test drive. You're going to love it.
