If you want a practical work truck that will get the job done without breaking a sweat, then a used 2014 Ford F-150 XL is the vehicle for you. Thanks to its powerful engine, performance capacities, and utilitarian features, this pickup is ready for anything.
Fitted with a 3.7-liter V6, this truck produces a monstrous 302 hp and 278 lb-ft of torque. According to J.D. Power, it also offers the best fuel economy out of all of the F-150 engines, getting 16 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway.
Knowing that the back of the F-150 is where most of the action happens, the Blue Oval has gone to great lengths to make sure it’s up to whatever Herculean task you throw at it. The bed of the 2014 XL measures 67” in length and 65.2” in width, which creates a roomy 55.4 cubic-foot cargo space.
Covered with a special plastic drop-in liner, the bed can handle any type of payload, whether it be wet, sharp, or dirty. Speaking of hauling items, the 2014 F-150 XL is capable of carrying an impressive 1,930 pounds. You can also hook up a trailer and tow a further 6,700 pounds.
