As one of the top brands in America, Ford is known for several things -- reliable and capable SUVs, powerful sports cars like the classic Mustang, and trucks that know what they’re doing. Even in 2016, Ford is still delivering pickup trucks unrivaled in their segment, from the full-size but light-duty F-150 to the commercial-grade powerhouse that is the F-550. With a number of safety technology features that include stability and towing assist systems paired with engines that are more capable and efficient than ever, Ford trucks should be anyone’s first choice when they head out into the world of pickup trucks.
For 2016, the F-150 -- one of the most iconic and renowned pickups in its segment -- has received the first-ever 5-star rating from the NHTSA in the pickup truck class. That makes the Ford F-150 one of the most capable and safest vehicles in Ford’s lineup. Features like Pro Trailer Backup Assist, the SYNC 3 system, and the highest EPA fuel ratings of any full-size pickup make the F-150 a clear winner.
Ford Super Duty
For the trucks in Ford’s lineup ranging from the F-250 through F-550, they are all classified under one name -- Ford Super Duty. The 2016 models feature the choice of a powerful second-generation 6.7-liter power stroke V8 turbo diesel engine that offers all sorts of best-in-class features, from range-topping specs of 440 horsepower and 860 lb-ft of torque to fuel economy unparalleled in its class. Additionally, no other truck can haul more than Ford’s Super Duty trucks, with 40,400 lbs of GCWR, and towing capacity of over 31,000 lbs., and upgraded suspension and towing gear on the F-450. Paired with comfort and convenience like the SYNC 3 infotainment system and the luxury of the Super Duty Platinum trim, you’ll be driving not only the most powerful truck on the market, but also the classiest.
