If you need a pickup that won’t quit until the workday is done, consider a used 2013 Ford F-150 STX. This no-nonsense truck is ready for whatever challenge you put in its path.
Cranking out an intimidating 360 hp and 380 lb-ft of torque, it’s no surprise that the 5.0-liter V8 is the most powerful engine available in this F-150 lineup. It offers the best fuel economy as well, delivering 15 mpg city and 21 highway. The 2013 model is also at the top of the class for towing and payload capabilities, allowing you to pull as much as 6,400 pounds and carry up to 1,765 lbs.
While it certainly boasts brawny abilities, according to KBB.com, this Ford drives more like a luxurious Lincoln SUV than a gruff work truck. The F-150 handles with finesse and treats rocky terrain as if it were inconsequential pebbles. The electric power-assisted steering (EPAS) provides the person behind the wheel with control and confidence, which is important when you’re towing over a metric ton of materials.
