The Ford F-150 Legacy

First introduced for the 1948 model year, the Ford F-Series of trucks can trace its roots even further back, to the pickups of the 1940s and 1930s, and even all the way back to the Ford Model TT and Model AA trucks. Although the F-150 is the most popular model today, when the F-Series first kicked off in 1948, it was nowhere to be found. The original lineup features a half-ton F1, three-quarter-ton F2 and F3, one-ton F4, and more beyond that, all the way to the F8. In 1952, for the second generation, Ford renamed these models to the F-100, F-250, F-350, and more––you might notice, however, still no F-150.

We did not get the F-150 we all know and love until the sixth generation. The 1975 model year included a new F-150 model designed to offer an option for people who wanted more power than the F-100 without going up to the heavy-duty trucks. The first-generation F-150 looked similar to the previous F-Series, with only subtle design cues differentiating it from its predecessor. Among these subtle differences was a new front grille that ushered the truck into a new era. Ford repositioned the parking lamps above the headlamps, then made rectangular headlamps standard by 1979. By then, the Ford F-Series was in its second consecutive year as the best-selling truck in America, a title it's kept ever since.

By 1983, the F-150 had become the most popular option in the lineup, and the F-100 was discontinued. It was hard to argue with the seventh generation's many improvements, including the first complete redesign in over a decade, new powertrains like the high-output 5.8L V8 and the fuel-injected 5.0L V8, and a host of available conveniences like power windows and doors. Fortunately for Ford fans, the changes continued into the 1990s and introduced improved performance and handling with a redesigned front end and new power plants like the fuel-injected 4.9L six-cylinder engine. During this time, the F-150 also gained an array of new technology, including remote keyless entry and a CD player.

The new millennium brought several changes to the best-selling F-150, including a streamlined design, an available navigation system, and the legendary 5.0L Coyote engine. Along with these updates, the F-150 also grew in size and capability, offering a more spacious cabin and versatile storage ideal for hauling cargo and ensuring the comfort of every passenger. Additionally, every new generation of the F-150 introduced cutting-edge technology designed to keep drivers connected, informed, and safe.

This onslaught of new technology and ongoing improvements to the best-selling F-150 shows Ford's commitment to constantly evolving the truck to meet the needs of its customers. Along the way, Ford has exceeded every expectation, cementing the F-150's position as an industry leader. In the more than 45 years since it was first introduced, the F-150 has proven itself time and time again and become the definitive American full-size pickup.

The 2022 Ford F-150

After being fully redesigned for 2021, the F-150 continues to impress as a carryover model in 2022. Tough, productive, rugged, reliable, and purpose-built from the ground up, the 2022 F-150 is what Ford calls "a beast with brains." It continues its legacy as the best-selling truck in America, proving you don't have to compromise on convenience, capability, innovation, or affordability. Can a truck get any better?

Delivering best-in-class towing and payload yet again, the 2022 F-150 lives up to the "Built Ford Tough" mantra and offers plenty of power across its multi-engine lineup. Its engine options are plentiful, ranging from the 290-hp 3.3L V6 and the 325-hp 2.7L EcoBoost to the 400-hp 5.0L V8. You'll find even more capability from the 3.5L EcoBoost V6 with its 500 lb-ft of torque. Or you can blend capability with efficiency by opting for the revolutionary 3.5L PowerBoost Full Hybrid V6 that delivers an impressive 570 lb-ft of near-instant torque and 430 hp.

Beyond this incredible power, the 2022 F-150 embodies versatility with advanced features like Pro Power Onboard. This revolutionary tool turns the F-150 into a mobile generator capable of powering small equipment right from the bed of the truck. For example, opting for the 3.5L PowerBoost Full Hybrid V6 engine means having 7.2 kW of exportable power on board, which can turn your tailgate party, camping trip, or job site into a hotspot of productivity and fun.

Inside, the 2022 F-150 is even more impressive and makes your comfort and convenience a top priority. You have all the information you need within reach from the driver's seat, courtesy of the available 12-inch touchscreen display and Ford's renowned SYNC 4 infotainment system. Adding the available foldable shifter transforms the center console into a flat work surface, giving you the perfect place to use a laptop, complete paperwork, or enjoy lunch. With these features, the F-150 isn't only a capable workhorse; it's also a mobile office that can meet all the demands of your busy life without missing a beat.

But Ford's engineers are never ones to rest on their laurels, so they are always creating exciting new options. At the top of this list right now is the 2022 F-150 Lightning, Ford's first all-electric F-Series model. If you are at all interested in seeing what an EV pickup will bring to the table, then this is the truck that you have been waiting for.

Two different battery options are available for the F-150 Lightning, which will impact the kind of range you can get and how powerful it is. The Standard Range option can go up to 230 miles on a full charge and features two motors that deliver 452 hp. With the Extended Range model, the Lightning gets 580 hp and 320 miles of range from a full charge. No matter which version you choose, however, this truck gets 775 lb-ft of instant torque and has four-wheel drive thanks to a motor on each axle.

The 2022 F-150 Lightning builds on the amazing features of the latest F-150 models and takes them to the next level. For example, it has an updated SYNC 4A infotainment system available along with a 15.5-inch portrait-oriented touchscreen display that is absolutely stunning. Available interior and tailgate work surfaces make it easy to use a laptop, go over paperwork, and otherwise get your job done at any worksite. Best of all, the Enhanced Pro Power Onboard lets you use the F-150 Lightning as a mobile power supply. In fact, its Intelligent Backup Power system even allows you to use it as a backup generator for your home, providing you with up to 10 days of emergency power from a full charge.

The 2021 Ford F-150

For the 2021 model year, the Ford F-150 has been updated and improved with a number of new features and options, plus more impressive power and performance than ever before. This is the truck that proves the best can continue to get better, and it really showcases how Ford's engineers and designers push themselves every year. This year marks the return of the F-150 Raptor, the most impressive off-road truck in Ford's lineup, featuring next-generation FOX Racing Shox that are sport-tuned to dominate the trail, exclusive 37-inch tires on bead-lock capable wheels, and a new rear suspension with 15 inches of wheel travel.

The engine options on the 2021 Ford F-150 are the best we have ever seen, so this is a fantastic time to buy a new model. It starts with a 3.3L V6 engine that offers 290 hp and 265 lb-ft of torque, followed up by a 2.7L EcoBoost engine that delivers 325 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque. But that is just the beginning: there is an available 5.0L V8 engine that gives you 400 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque, as well as a 3.5L EcoBoost that delivers 400 hp and 500 lb-ft of torque. If you want a diesel option, then there is a 3.0L Power Stroke Turbo Diesel offering 250 hp and 440 lb-ft of torque. Finally, you can choose an available 3.5L PowerBoost Full Hybrid V6 engine that delivers a monstrous 430 hp and 570 lb-ft of torque.

All of this power gives the 2021 F-150 best-in-class towing and payload: up to 14,000 lbs of maximum towing capacity and up to 3,325 lbs of maximum payload. No matter what you are looking to get done, the F-150 can handle it––even the amazing hybrid engine delivers up to 12,700 lbs of towing and 2,120 lbs of maximum payload. This is a powerful work truck that helps you get your job done with innovative features like the Pro Power Onboard generator, as well as next-level connectivity thanks to an available 12-inch infotainment display, wireless phone charger, and 12-inch digital instrument cluster.
