by | Dec 19, 2017 | Automotive

The Ford F-150 pickup is America’s best-selling truck. Over the decades, the Ford F-150 in Barrington has evolved from a workhorse to a highly refined and sophisticated vehicle. The Ford F-150 has it all: aluminum bed and body, superior powertrains and a wealth of appearance options.

What’s new:

There have been several changes made to the Ford F-150 for 2017 including a new 3.5L V6 engine and 10-speed transmission. This new engine/transmission pairing give far better fuel economy than previous years while at the same time, packing more punch. The Raptor, the off-road version returns with a high- performance version of the same engine.

Trim levels:

There are six basic models in the lineup, excluding the off-road Raptor. The XL is a hard working truck that is ideal for heavy use on-site. If you are handling passengers, move up to the XLT. The Lariet is the entry-level luxury truck that gives you all you want, and more.

All trims are available in Regular, Super, and SuperCrew cab design. Depending on the cab style, the F-150 comes with bed lengths of 5.5, 6.5, and 8 feet.

The King Ranch only is available with a SuperCrew cab; it has as standard a 5.0L V8 under the hood. The Platinum is a combination work truck and luxury vehicle; it features 20-inch wheels, power running boards, wood and polished aluminum interior trim. The top-of-the-line Limited has 22-inch wheels, a 3.5L turbocharged engine, and leather interior.

Utility features:

As nice as a Ford F-150 in Barrington can be, it is still designed to work. There are plenty of anchor points to secure cargo and there is a lot of interior storage space. The door pockets and center console are huge. If you bought the F-150 for towing you will not be disappointed, it pulls close to 11,000 pounds when supplied with 1 3.73 axle gear ratio and 2.7L EcoBoost engine.

The Ford F-150 in Barrington is America’s best selling pick-up for all the right reasons. To see and test drive the new F-150, visit Arlington Heights Ford.
