When you choose the 2016 Ford F-150, you get a highly capable and dependable pickup. Big and small jobs alike become easier, thanks to clever designs and cutting-edge technologies designed to help you do more. An innovative aluminum construction means fewer stops for fuel, making better use of your time. Everyone will also appreciate the well-appointed cabin, which can be outfitted with an impressive number of luxuries and conveniences.
Six diverse trim levels are offered for the 2016 Ford F-150, giving shoppers plenty of choice. There are also three cab configurations: regular, SuperCab and SuperCrew. Finally, shoppers can get three payload lengths: 5.5 feet, 6.5 feet or 8 feet.
Four engine choices provide the kind of rugged capability 2016 Ford F-150 owners need. The base option is a dependable 3.5-litre V-6, which whips out 282 horsepower and 253 lb.-ft. of torque. Despite being smaller, the 2.7-litre EcoBoost V-6 is actually even more capable. It's rated at an astounding 325 horsepower and 375 lb.-ft. of torque, thanks in part to high pressure direct injection and turbocharging.
For those who want a more traditional option, a 5.0-litre V-8 is also in the mix. It thunders out 385 horsepower and 387 lb.-ft. of torque. Boosting performance even further is the 3.5-litre EcoBoost V-6. Like the other EcoBoost option, it combines a turbocharger and direct injection, squeezing out 365 horsepower and 420 lb.-ft. of torque.
All four engines available for the 2016 Ford F-150 work with a six-speed automatic transmission. Two-wheel drive is standard, but four-wheel drive can be added to any trim. An optional BoxLink system makes quite a few aftermarket products for the bed available, including dividers, storage boxes and more. Box side steps can be added to any version of the truck, providing a no-fuss way to get into the bed without lowering the tailgate in the rear. With the standard Easy Fuel capless fuel filler, there's no forgetting the cap when stopping at a fuel station, plus the design cuts down on evaporative emissions.
Many of the traditional safety equipment you'd expect in a modern truck comes standard on the 2016 Ford F-150, such as side-curtain airbags and ABS brakes. A unique Curve Control technology senses when a driver enters a turn too quickly. Working with the roll stability control and AdvanceTrac, the system slows down the truck, increasing stability and cutting down on the likelihood of an accident. While a rearview camera is standard for the entire lineup, shoppers can add a dynamic hitch assist feature, which guides drivers when connecting the truck to a trailer.
No matter what version of the 2016 Ford F-150 you choose, the interior is spacious and comfortable. High-quality materials and excellent craftsmanship make the truck feel solid, while controls are large enough to be used when wearing gloves. Some models can be equipped with a 110-volt three-prong outlet, just like the ones in your house. Another of the many options is an 8-inch productivity screen, which is embedded in the gauge cluster and supplies pertinent information such as vehicle level, fuel level and more.
