“The F-150 continues to be King of Pickup Mountain,” Consumer Reports exclaims. They liked the option of five different engines offered, for the F-150. The 2.7L V6 turbo was described as delivering “brisk acceleration, effortless towing ability, and impressive fuel economy.”

It also was praised for blending technology and comfort into the rugged rig. “There’s a wide range of equipment to make driving and connectivity easier, such as WiFi, an easy-to-use infotainment system, and a rearview camera that’s specially designed to help drivers line up with their trailer. The cabin has generous room for the driver and passengers in the widely sold crew cab.”
