If you’re in the market for a pre-owned truck that can do it all, consider a 2009 Ford F-150. Autotrader says that this is a fantastic option for drivers who want a heavy duty pickup that doubles as the family car. Its respectable fuel economy and top-notch loading feature alone warrant this best-seller a second look.
The base engine is a meaty 4.6-liter V8, which cranks out a generous 248 hp and 294 lb-ft of torque. This monstrous powertrain received an EPA rating of 14 miles per gallon in the city and 19 mpg on the highway.
If you find that the bed of your truck gets a considerable amount of use, you’ll appreciate the integrated tailgate step ladder, which allows you to stow bulky items into the back of the F-150 with ease. Opt for the SuperCrew cab and you’ll get a flat load floor, which is perfect for sliding heavy boxes. Other optional features include Bluetooth connectivity, Sony audio, and SYNC device pairing to keep you connected to the world around you.
