Value

Considering that the new F-150 is a vehicle which can serve as a work truck, a play truck, a luxury vehicle and a family hauler, short of its just okay fuel economy, the F-150 is quite a versatile machine which can fit a wide range of needs. A truck in the equipment range of our tester ranges from $35,000 to $45,000 MSRP. When you consider that this can serve as a luxury vehicle as well as a work truck, then factor in how dismal new car sales are for automakers these days, the value of an F-150 really boils down to how much of a hustler you are at the bargaining table.

Who Should Buy It?

A) Anyone who has – as defined by the Obama administration – a “clunker” that gets really abysmal fuel economy.
B) A truck buyer who looks at more than horsepower, torque and towing capacity numbers
C) Someone who is seeking a vehicle that can transport the family, be a well-appointed chariot for a big night on the town and haul, tow or drag an ever increasing mountain of useless ‘stuff’.

Conclusion

The F-150 comes in 35, count ‘em, 35 different trim packages, giving us a total number of possible configurations which could compete with our trillion-dollar national debt. There is no shortage of ways to customize this truck for your lifestyle. And when it comes down to those proverbial ‘brass tacks’, the F-150 transports its occupants in style and comfort, tows a hell of a lot and has the structural rigidity to handle some brutish work sites. Although it might not be America’s number one selling vehicle right now, with all the improvements Ford has made, the F-150 should have no problem maintaining status as America’s most popular pickup.
