BEST-IN-CLASS PAYLOAD

Reducing weight is an effective way to increase payload. And that’s a huge benefit of the F-150 body and bed built of lightweight and high-strength, military-grade aluminum alloy. What results is a best-in-class* payload rating in F-150 models powered by the legendary Ford 5.0L V8. The 5.0L features the Ford port-fuel and direct-injection (PFDI) system with two injectors per cylinder — one in the air intake port, another inside the cylinder — to improve power and efficiency. Impressive power ratings are 395 horsepower and 400 lb.-ft. of torque.

CLASS-EXCLUSIVE PRO TRAILER BACKUP ASSIST

Backing up a trailer involves navigating two vehicles at the same time — the truck going one way and the trailer going in the opposite direction. Whether you’re a novice or a seasoned pro at this often tricky maneuver, the available class-exclusive* Pro Trailer Backup Assist makes it as easy as turning a knob.** Simply rotate the knob left or right in the direction you want the trailer to go. F-150 is the first pickup to offer this breakthrough feature.

The F-150 provides lots of places to store the assortment of things you carry inside the cab. Stow items in the door-trim panel bins and the glove box. There’s space for a laptop inside the available flow-through center console. And the SuperCab and SuperCrew® models feature a fully flat rear load floor with under-seat storage.
