It’s a sad truth - but most relationships don’t last. Your girlfriend may leave you; your dog may bite you; and your boss may toss you a pink slip, declaring that you’ve been replaced by automation. There are no constants... except one.
The bond between man and machine is eternal. You can conquer miles from behind the steering wheel, relying always on your Ford pick-up to get the job done - quickly, efficiently, and correctly. There’s no challenge too great and no load too heavy, especially when revving up these highway beasts:
The Ford F-150
Since 1975 the F-150 has served as Ford’s signature truck. This platform blends a series of innovations - including military-grade aluminum, high-output V8 engines, and best-in-class trailering capabilities - to crush the pavement. It’s reigned as North America’s top-selling pick-up for more than 40 years, and it’s helped men achieve every half-ton goal.
Towing (as of 2017): 10,500 pounds.
Payloads (as of 2017): 2,329 pounds.
In 1973 Ford introduced drivers to its F-350, a single-rear-wheel platform intended for outdoor adventures (it offered the brand’s first, and last, Super Camper Special Package to accommodate those trips down Route 66). Time changes all things, though, and this pick-up was no exception. In 1983 it was given an extended wheelbase and a crew-cab configuration, turning it into a commercial powerhouse. Since then it’s proven the must-have model for those in need of segment-defining performance and heavy-duty capabilities.
Towing (as of 2017): 13,100 pounds.
Payloads (as of 2017): 7,027 pounds.
In 2008 Ford redefined expectations, delivering a new kind of pick-up performer. The Raptor (a variant of the F-150) was Baha-infused and ready to rumble. It was tailored for off-road adventures, embracing a play-hard philosophy that propelled it to the top of the charts; and North American men soon replaced their ATVs with a V8 speedster. Prepare for custom drive modes and a sport-tuned suspension that refuses to quit.
Towing (as of 2017): 8,000 pounds.
Payloads (as of 2017): 3,270 pounds.
