The truck is also available with 3. That's how good this truck is all around. The Platinum's front seats are bisected by a center console with enough storage for files, a large lunch, or even a medium-size pet. At an annual rate of 12,000 miles, that means you'll save roughly 40 gallons per year. So that makes for quite a range of towing and payload capacities as well.
Very smooth at all speeds. Just like that supercar, the F-150 is a tool built for a purpose. Not bad, as you are still matching the capabilities of the base V6 with the 3. At least, it was until the EcoBoost came along. Outside of heavy-duty turbo-diesel models, that's a foreign concept to truck people. Front seats are as comfy if not more comfy than a luxury car, love all the features. The shifter is console-mounted, which a few judges found un-truck-like.
Maximum trailer capacity is 10,000 lbs. Clearly, Ford's marketing department has missed a golden opportunity for yet another acronym with this feature. We aren't delusional about how people will use these trucks; no one is buying one as a sports car. It has a goal in life, and the people who never use it as it was intended are squandering the truck's ability and a heritage that goes back to 1948. Specific passenger pampering depends on the trim level, but the overall comfort level is high, even when the cargo bed is unloaded.

The old-fashioned V8s are pretty strong, too. More than 100,000 hours of vehicle test time accumulated across a broad range of operating conditions.
Ford's throwing a gasoline direct-injection, twin-turbo-fed V-6 under the hood of a full-size truck is almost enough to knock the earth off its axis. But what really sets the EcoBoost apart is that all 420 lb-ft are available from just 2,500 rpm, so whether you're accelerating up a grade or simply passing on the highway, downshifts are optional-there's plenty of force on tap. Towing without the help of professionals is a dangerous undertaking. New for this year, but not on hand, are 's entry-level 302-horsepower, 3.
