Ford has claimed for decades that the Ford F-150 has been the best selling Truck in the US and we couldn’t agree more! The F-150’s production goes back over 60 years. Over the course of these years, the F-150 has been offered in a variety of different sub-models and trims.
The thirteenth generation of the F-150 began with the 2015 model, offering a completely redesigned chassis that utilizes an aluminum construction for improved fuel economy and performance. The 2015-2017 F-150 carries over the tradition of offering a variety of engine options, bed, and cab sizes, as well as multiple sub-models that include:
• King Ranch
• SVT Raptor
Carrying on the success of the 2011-2014 EcoBoost engine, Ford offered two EcoBoost engines for 2015-2017, the 2.7L and 3.5L V6. The 2.7L EcoBoost V6 measured in at 325 HP and 375 TQ while the 3.5L EcoBoost V6 made 365 HP and 375 TQ. The 2017 Ford Raptor offered a one-off version of the 3.5L EcoBoost V6, producing 450 HP and 510 TQ which shares its engine block with the Ford GT. Ford also offered the 3.5L V6 and the 5.0L Coyote V8. The 3.5L naturally aspirated V6 made 282 HP and 253 TQ while the 5.0L V8 made a staggering 385 HP and 387 TQ. The 6R80 6-speed automatic transmission was the only transmission offered, with the only exception being the Raptor’s 10-speed automatic that came out in 2017.
The 2009-2014 F-150 was the twelfth generation of America’s best selling pickup truck. With a wide variety of sub-models and engine sizes, the 2009-2014 F-150 was available in the following sub-models:
• King Ranch
• SVT Raptor
• Special Edition 2014 Raptor
• Harley Davidson
• FX Tremor
The twelfth generation of the F-150 had the most engine offerings to date which included the 3.5L EcoBoost V6, 3.7L V6, 4.6l V8, 5.0L V8, 5,4L V8, and the Raptor exclusive 6.2L V8. The 2009-2014 F-150 saw a shift in focus with Ford offering less barebone base model F-150s while simultaneously offering more luxury and off-road ready F-150s. The twelfth generation of the F-150 was the first generation to come with automatic transmissions only. Either a 4-speed or 6-speed.
The 2009-2014 had quite a few different wheelbase dimensions due to there being so many different submodel offerings. Regular cab F-150s with the 6.5’ bed had a wheelbase of 126”, and the 8' bed had a 144.5”. SuperCab F-150s with the 5.5’ bed had a wheelbase of 132.5”, the 6.5’ bed came in at 144.5”, and the SuperCab with the 8’ bed had a 163” wheelbase.
SuperCrew F-150s with the 5.5’ bed had a wheelbase of 144.5” while the 6.5’ bed bumped the wheelbase up to 156.5”. The Raptor came in two wheelbases with only the 5.5’ bed as an option which included the Raptor SuperCab’s 133.3” and the Raptor SuperCrew’s 145.2” dimensions.
Although the 2009-2014 F-150 was offered almost exclusively as a styleside (no side steps on the side of the bed. Just a body panel), there was a flareside (wheel wells exposed on outside of bed. Also known as a step side) offered only in 2009 and with a 6.5’ bed. The flareside body style was available with all three cab configurations and in FX4, STX, and XLT trims.
The eleventh generation of the F-150 was available with a wide selection of engines, trim packages, colors, trims, and drivetrains. The 2004-2008 range is when Ford started to become more invested in off-roading and enthusiast driving, offering more off-road ready sub-models designed to tackle tougher terrains.
The wheelbase for the 2004-2008 F-150 is determined by the cab style as well as the bed size. Regular Cab F-150s with a 6.5’ bed have a 126” wheelbase while the 8’ have a 144.5” wheelbase. Hoping up to the SuperCab style 2004-2008 F-150, the 5.5’ bed had a 132.5”, the 6.5’ bed had a 144.5” wheelbase, and the 8’ bed came with the largest wheelbase of all, 163”. 2004-2008 SuperCrew F-150s were available with only 5.5’ and 6.5’ beds, coming in 138.5” and 150.5” wheelbases respectively.
You’ll find plenty of different options and features inside and outside of the F-150. The dash lets drivers watch where they’re parking with a nav screen that displays 360-degree camera views. Recent models have more interior cargo space and more rear legroom in four-door models. There’s a 60/40 folding bench, for access to the rear in extra-cab versions, but bucket seats are also an option. Some F-150s even come with a sunroof. Our customers love their F-150s because their cabs are quiet and roomy, and passengers stay comfortable on both short and long drives. Drivers who haul lots of stuff or have lots of friends who need moving help will be comforted by the F-150’s numbers here: around 5 tons of towing capacity and about a ton of payload in the full-sized bed (2-door models).
