Ford Truck Model Lineup & Overview

Ford Trucks Overview - Basil Auto Group
Ford is the logical place to look when shopping for a new truck. After all, Ford trucks are the most popular in North America for a reason. Which Ford truck is right for you is a slightly more difficult thing to work out. Ford offers a wide range of models and configurations, and these each have their own advantages. So to help sort through all of these options, we put together this guide to Ford trucks.

Chevrolet Silverado EV

Key Features

  • Starting at $23,400 MSRP
  • 2.0L EcoBoost® engine producing 250 horsepower and 277 lb-ft of torque, or hybrid drivetrain producing 191 horsepower
  • Standard Five-Passenger Seating
  • LED Headlamps

The Maverick redefines what a small pickup can do. This unibody pickup combines the everyday practicality of a four-door vehicle and excellent fuel economy with a cargo bed and an impressive towing capacity. The Maverick comes with a choice of a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, or a hybrid drivetrain. There is also a choice of front- or all-wheel drive. With a payload capacity of up to 1,500 pounds and a towing capacity of up to 4,000 pounds, the Maverick is an incredibly cost-effective and practical truck for those who need a truck to also double as a daily driver. The Maverick has few competitors, and those that do exist don’t really measure up.


Ford Ranger

Key Features

  • Starting at $32,565 MSRP
  • 2.3L EcoBoost® I4 producing 270 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque, or 2.7L EcoBoost® V6 producing 315 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque
  • Standard Trailer Sway Control
  • Standard 10-inch infotainment touchscreen

If you like a small pickup, but need something with a bit more capability than the Maverick, the Ranger is Ford’s smallest body-on-frame pickup. Built on the same platform as the Bronco offroader, the Ranger is engineered to handle a huge range of conditions, and the 7,500-pound max towing capacity rivals some full-sized truck configurations. There is a choice of a 4-cylinder or a V6 engine, both of which come turbocharged, and both of which offer some serious power. Rear-wheel drive comes standard, but a 4×4 setup is obviously available. For those looking for the ultimate in offroad capability for their Ranger, there is the Ranger Raptor, which comes with a 3.0-liter EcoBoost® V6 that produces 405 horsepower and 430 lb-ft of torque. This version doesn’t offer the towing capacity you get from the other trims, but that’s not what it’s built for. The Raptor is meant for high-speed offroad performance, and it very much delivers in that department.


Ford F-150

Key Features

  • Starting at $34,585 MSRP
  • 3.3L Ti-VCT V6 producing 290 horsepower and 265 lb-ft of torque, 2.7L EcoBoost® V6 producing 325 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque, 5.0L Ti-VCT V8 producing 400 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque, 3.5L EcoBoost® V6 producing 400 horsepower and 500 lb-ft of torque, or 3.5L PowerBoost™ Full Hybrid V6 producing 430 horsepower and 570 lb-ft of torque
  • Tailgate Step with Tailgate Work Surface
  • SYNC® 4 with Enhanced Voice Recognition and available 12-inch touchscreen

It wouldn’t be a stretch to call the F-150 the most iconic pickup truck of all time. If anything, it might be an understatement. Innovation and incredible capability keep the F-150 at the front of the pickup pack, with segment firsts that include things like aluminum bodies and a hybrid drivetrain. Versatility is key with the F-150, which is offered with 3 different cabs, 3 different bed lengths, and a whopping 5 different drivetrains. The number of drivetrain options grows to 7 when you consider the two that are offered with the Raptor, an offroad racing configuration of the F-150 that comes with your choice of a 450-horsepower twin-turbo V6 or a 700-horsepower supercharged V8. Whether engaging in extreme offroad racing, or taking full advantage of the F-150’s segment-leading 14,000-pound towing capacity, The F-150 handles whatever you need to do with ease, and there is a configuration for everyone.

F-150 Lightning

Ford F-150 Lightning

Key Features

  • Starting at $49,995 MSRP
  • All-electric drivetrain producing either 462 horsepower or 580 horsepower and 775 lb-ft of torque with either configuration
  • Mega Power Frunk
  • Available Onboard Scale with Smart Hitch

The F-150 Lightning isn’t the only electric pickup on the market, but it is absolutely the only electric pickup on the market with the capability that conventional pickup buyers have come to expect. It’s the only truck in the Ford lineup that comes with 4WD as standard, and it produces more horsepower than all but the 700-horsepower F-150 Raptor, although it will beat the Rator’s 0-60 time. Lightning models equipped with the Extended Range battery can go an estimated 320 miles on one charge, and the towing capacity of 10,000 pounds is plenty for most pickup owners. The Lightning is impressive for being both an impressive technological feat, something no other automaker has achieved so far, but still works like an F-150, something buyers have loved for decades.

Super Duty

Ford Super Duty

Key Features

  • Starting at $44,970 MSRP
  • 6.8L N/A V8 Gas producing 405 horsepower and 445 lb-ft of torque, 7.3L N/A V8 Gas engine producing 430 horsepower and 485 lb-ft of torque, 6.7L Power Stroke® V8 Turbo Diesel producing 475 horsepower and 1,050 lb-ft of torque, or 6.7L HO Power Stroke® V8 Turbo Diesel producing 500 horsepower and 1,200 lb-ft of torque
  • Wired Aux Trailer Camera Compatibility
  • Available dual alternators

The Super Duty is the truck for the most extreme jobs, the ones that require the segment’s most powerful gasoline engine, or the segment’s highest torque rating, or highest towing capacity. The jobs that even other heavy-duty trucks can’t handle. The Super Duty combines the toughness and power that it’s always been known for with cutting-edge technology and a supremely comfortable interior for a truck that’s clearly much more capable than the competition. There are available bed scales to make sure you aren’t overloading, and to help with more even distribution of weight, and the available Max Recline seats let you lay flat, for those nights when sleeping at the job site is unavoidable. A wide variety of trims lets you configure your Super Duty as a hardcore offroader, a trailer-hauling highway cruiser, or quite a lot of things in between.
