What to Consider

To ensure you purchase the perfect truck, there are some things to keep in mind during the research and test-driving stages.

  • Usage: One of the first questions to ask yourself is what you will use the truck for. For work, look into a larger model. For leisure driving, a midsize or smaller model will meet your daily needs.
  • Towing Capacity: If you’ll be needing to tow often, be sure to look at the towing capacity of potential models. This is the amount of weight your model will be able to tow while pulling a trailer.
  • Power: If you will be using your truck for towing, then you will need a powerful engine that can deliver. Smaller engines will provide more efficiency.
  • Seating: Ford trucks, like the Ford F-150, can seat up to three in Regular Cab models and up to six in SuperCab and SuperCrew models.

Available Ford Trucks

The Ford F-150 is an iconic model that comes standard with a 3.3-liter V6 engine and can tow up to 8,200 pounds.

For a smaller model that still packs a punch with less stops at the pump, the Ford Ranger is for you. It has a Best-in-Class payload rating of 1,860 pounds, generates up to 26 MPG highway, and has a towing capacity of up to to 7,500 pounds.

Ultimate power can be found in the 2021 Ford Super Duty models with towing abilities that top out at 20,000 pounds.
