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 featured a half-ton F1, three-quarter-ton F2 and F3, one-ton F4, and more beyond that all the way to the F8. For its second generation in 1952, 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. In 1977, the Ford F-Series became the bestselling truck in the US, and it has remained there ever since. By 1983, the F-150 had become the most popular option in the lineup, and the F-100 was discontinued. In the more than 40 years since it was first introduced, the F-150 has proven itself time and again and become the definitive American full-size pickup.

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 Ti-VCT 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 on 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.

The 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning

The Ford F-Series is built on a legacy of innovation that includes some of the most important trucks in the history of the auto industry. 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 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 features motors that deliver 426 hp, and it can go up to 230 miles on a full charge. With the Extended Range model, the Lightning gets 563 hp and an estimated 300 miles of range from a full charge. No matter which one 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 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 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.
