615 × 473

If you are searching for a new truck to invest in, we say start the new decade off right by rewarding yourself with the best truck currently on the market - the Ford F-150. As of now, the F-150 is outselling all other trucks in the United States and Ford’s F-Series truck lineup is the best-selling set of vehicles in any class in the United States. The Ford F-150 out performs its competitors by a wide margin, so if you think that there’s a truck that can stand up to the Ford F-150, think again. When examining the truck market, it’s easy to see that the Ford F-150’s competitors, such as the Chevrolet Silverado, are simply outdone by the F-150 models in many ways, due to clear benefits in towing, pricing, more engine options, fuel economy, off-roading capabilities, and excellent safety ratings and safety equipment.  

Even though the F-150 and Silverado seem fairly similar in all aspects of comparison, when you take a deeper look, the Ford F-150 clearly dominates in every category. The Ford F-150 is definitely the better bang for your buck, as you will receive greater value bundled with a lower starting price tag. The term “Built Ford Tough” shows in the F-150 and is highlighted by its tremendous towing capabilities, its best-in-class payload, and a pickup bed that can maximize productivity and make a working man’s life much easier.

The F-150 can also get down and dirty with its off-road technology that can make any adventure in the trails a lively experience. The Terrain Management System in the F-150 offers 7 modes (Normal, Sport, Slippery, Tow/Haul, Deep Snow/Sand, Baja, and Rock Crawl) and also features Trail Control, a cruise control system for off-road terrain. Even the Chevy Silverado simply cannot beat the many great attributes that can only be found in the F-150.

Read below to get an idea of how much variety Ford provides with their trucks to find out why it’s the best-selling truck in the nation. With the vast lineup of trim models, engine options, and smart features, you can reassure yourself that you will be able to find the F-150 that’s perfect for you and matches your taste.
