Whether it’s a grueling off-road workday or a cross-country vacation with the kids, the 2014 Ford F-150 Platinum is the truck for you. Through the combination of a fierce engine and exceptional safety features, this iteration of America’s favorite vehicle is hard to beat. Consider a used model for your next pickup.
This F-150 runs on a 6.2-liter V8, which is Ford’s meatiest powertrain. This behemoth cranks out a whopping 411 hp and 434 lb-ft of torque. But this extra large truck is no slow-poke. According to a Motor Trend review, it can go from zero to 60 mph in a spritely 7.1 seconds.
Choosing the Platinum version of this best-selling truck means the addition of xenon headlights, 20-inch wheels, and power-deployable running boards. You’re also treated to a top-notch navigation system, which will route you from Point A to Point B in a snap.
This trim level also includes important safety features like a remote anti-theft alarm system and SOS Post Crash Alert. The latter will automatically contact emergencies services in the case of a collision or airbag deployment.
