The Ford F-150 has been the best-selling vehicle in America for 40 years. When you look back on its long history of success, you’ll notice that it’s consistently praised for for its unbeatable driving experience. For the best in road manners, consider a pre-owned 2016 model.
Starting off under the hood, this F-150 runs on a 5.0-liter V8 engine, which wields an intimidating 385 hp and 387 lb-ft of torque. When you combine that power with the truck’s new lightweight aluminum frame, you’d better be ready to roll.
Thanks to its recent 500 pound weight loss, Autoblog says that acceleration is both smooth and energetic, which are two words not normally applied to a full-size pickup. Even when traveling at faster speeds, the sense of control is more akin to an adept sedan than a hulking truck. This should all come as welcome news for drivers who spend a good amount of time on the highway.
But that’s not all. The stalwart of pickup trucks also delivers a standout performance around town. The electric power steering is responsive and agile, which will prove useful when navigating residential streets or congested intersections. If you find yourself traversing potholes or dirt roads, don't fret. The F-150 absorbs bumps and divots with equal aplomb.
