Ford makes it easy to customize the F-150 to have the power output you need for your line of work. One of the most important customizations on the F-150 is the powertrain. The base engine is a 3.3-liter V6 engine that is focused on being stout and reliable. It makes a decent amount of power and gets above-average fuel economy for a V6 engine.

If you want more power and efficiency, you can bump up to the 2.7-liter turbocharged Ecoboost engine. This engine gives you a healthy horsepower and torque increase over the 3.3-liter V6, while also improving fuel efficiency.

The 5.0-liter V8 engine makes more horsepower than the 2.7-liter engine while still keeping its impressive torque figures. The V8 does get worse fuel efficiency, but the power delivery is much more predictable and linear than the one found on the 2.7-liter engine.

The 3.0-liter Power Stroke turbo diesel engine is a great choice if you are looking for a solid powertrain for towing. This stout engine makes tons of torque, and it gets nearly 30 miles per gallon highway. This engine is a clear choice if you want a powerful but efficient cruising F-150. The hallmark engine of the F-150 lineup is the 3.5-liter Ecoboost V6 engine. This engine gives you a great balance of power and fuel efficiency. It has a sportier throttler response, that is reminiscent of larger naturally aspirated engines. This powertrain allows the F-150 to tow up to 13,200 pounds, and you can push the power figures even higher if you opt for the high-output variant.


Ford wants its vehicles to be as safe as possible, and the F-150 is no exception. The F-150 comes with Ford Co-Pilot360, which is a set of safety systems that work together to give you tons of tech to keep you safe as you travel around Columbia, IL. The F-150 comes with tons of safety features that help with towing, like BLIS with trailer coverage. This system can notify you if a vehicle or object is in your blind spot, or if one is cruising next to your trailer. Features like lake-keeping and adaptive cruise control help to cut down on the tedium of a long cruise across the countryside, so you can arrive at your destination around Belleville, IL more relaxed than ever before.


The F-150 has fairly subdued styling compared to other pickups on the market. The F-150 focuses on being functional rather than form, and this helps it to lead its class in many categories. The F-150's design looks modern, and the interior is well crafted.

The cabin is inviting, comfortable, and has all the amenities you need to take on a long road trip. You can choose to customize your F-150 to be fairly sparse on features with a rugged interior, or lavish with modern luxuries and a premium-feeling cabin.


When it comes to technology, the F-150 has everything you need to get the job done. The 8-inch productivity display in the dashboard is configurable and allows you to see all of the F-150's vital information easily. FordPass Connect is an app that allows you to connect to and access certain features of the F-150 remotely. This allows you to start or stop the vehicle, along with lock and unlock your doors from just about anywhere.
