Ford F-150 Versus the Competition

Ford F-150 vs. Chevrolet Silverado 1500

The Chevrolet Silverado seems like a much better full-size pickup truck when it's not stacked up against the F-150. It has capable powertrains (including a turbo-four, which the Ford doesn't offer), great towing and hauling capabilities, and a spacious interior. However, the same is true of the F-150. The Ford may not offer a turbo-four option, but it can tow and haul more than the Chevy. It also has a nicer interior and a higher predicted reliability rating, and it gets better gas mileage.

Compare the F-150 and Silverado 1500 »

Ford F-150 vs. Ram 1500

The Ram 1500 is the F-150's toughest competition for the top spot in the class rankings every year. It can't match the F-150 for towing and hauling, but the Ram is still powerful and capable. It's also the only truck in the class to surpass the F-150 in two notable areas: interior and ride quality. The Ram is the class leader with regard to both, and in higher trim levels it feels like you're driving a luxury vehicle.

F-150 Performance: Unmatched Capability

F-150 Engine

You have a whopping six options when picking a powertrain for the F-150: a 290-horsepower V6 (the base engine), a 325-horsepower twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V6, a 400-horsepower EcoBoost V6, a 400-horsepower V8, a 250-horsepower turbodiesel, and the all-new F-150 hybrid, which features the larger EcoBoost V6 and an electric motor and has a total output of 430 horsepower.

The base V6 is fine, but the smaller EcoBoost V6 is a better choice if you mostly use the F-150 for commuting to and from work every day. If you plan to use it for heavier-duty towing, you should instead consider the diesel or V8 engines.

Regardless of what you want from your F-150, the two most impressive powertrains are the larger EcoBoost V6 and the hybrid. The have the best acceleration, jetting off eagerly from a stop, and they always feel like there's power in reserve on the highway.

F-150 Gas Mileage

The F-150 gets 20 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway with its base engine and rear-wheel drive. Those are good ratings for the full-size pickup truck class. With the smaller EcoBoost V6, ratings jump slightly to 20/26 mpg city/highway.

If you're considering the V8, you'll still get better fuel economy ratings than many V8-powered rivals: 17 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway.

Finally, the all-new hybrid powertrain makes its debut with some impressive mpg ratings. With it equipped, the F-150 gets 24 mpg in the city and on the highway.

F-150 Ride and Handling

Though it's a large vehicle, the F-150 is fairly easy to drive. It provides a smooth ride, with the suspension absorbing road imperfections without issue. This Ford also feels composed on winding roads, with good steering feel and not much body lean.

F-150 Off-Road Performance

Every F-150 model offers four-wheel drive and, thus, has decent off-road capability right off the bat. There are several off-road packages and trims available as well. You can learn more in the “Which F-150 Model Is Best for Off-Roading?” section below.

F-150 Towing Capacity

When properly equipped, no rival can match the F-150 when it comes to towing and hauling. It can tow up to 14,000 pounds and haul up to 3,325 pounds.

F-150 Interior: Quiet, Roomy, and Comfortable

F-150 Cargo Space

The F-150 is available with 8-foot, 6.5-foot, and 5.5-foot beds, though not every bed is offered with every cab style. There are plenty of nifty bed features available, including Ford's BoxLink – adjustable tie-down cleats that you can also use as bottle openers – an in-bed power outlet, a fold-out step built into the tailgate, a power tailgate, and stowable loading ramps.

How Many People Does the F-150 Seat?

Regular Cab F-150 models seat up to three people, and SuperCab and SuperCrew models seat up to six. The front seats are supportive and comfortable, and drivers have plenty of visibility. In higher trims, you can opt for Ford's max recline seats, which fold nearly flat and make it much easier to nap in the truck. SuperCrew models have the most spacious back-seat setup, and adults can ride comfortably in the rear seats of SuperCab models as well.

F-150 and Child Car Seats

In SuperCab and SuperCrew body styles, there are two complete sets of LATCH connectors for the rear outboard seats and a tether anchor for the rear middle seat.

F-150 Interior Quality

Though it doesn’t quite match the standards set by the Ram 1500, the F-150's interior is as good as or better than any other full-size truck's. The design is attractive, the materials quality is generally impressive, and it remains quiet even at highway speeds.

F-150 Infotainment, Bluetooth, and Navigation

You'll have few complaints, if any, about the SYNC 4 infotainment system. It has an intuitive interface with easily navigable menu layouts. The display has crisp graphics and large buttons, making it simple to use while on the move. There are logically arranged physical controls as well.

  • Standard infotainment features: an 8-inch touch screen, a Wi-Fi hot spot, USB ports, Bluetooth, Android Auto, and Apple CarPlay
  • Available infotainment features: a 12-inch touch screen, navigation, an eight- or 18-speaker Bang & Olufsen audio system, satellite radio, HD Radio, wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, and wireless device charging
  • Other available features: a moonroof, dual-zone automatic climate control, push-button start, remote start, and power windows and door locks

Ford F-150 Trims:

Ford F-150 XL

The F-150 XL carries a base price of $28,940. The XL comes standard with a 290-horsepower 3.3-liter V6 engine, a 10-speed automatic transmission, and rear-wheel drive. Standard features include cloth upholstery and the SYNC 4 infotainment system with an 8-inch touch screen, a Wi-Fi hot spot, USB ports, Bluetooth, Android Auto, and Apple CarPlay.

Standard driver assistance features include a rearview camera, forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, and forward automatic emergency braking. Some of these features are part of Ford's Co-Pilot360 suite of technology.

The Regular Cab/6.5-foot bed combo is the standard configuration for the XL trim. You can opt for the 8-foot bed, which costs an extra $300.

SuperCab models start at $33,025 when paired with the middle bed length. You can get the long bed for an extra $1,305. SuperCrew models start at $36,650 and come standard with the 5.5-foot bed. The 6.5-foot bed is a $1,305 upgrade.

The F-150 XLT starts at $35,050. In addition to the base trim's features, the XLT comes with power windows and door locks, lane keep assist, rear parking sensors, blind spot monitoring, and cross traffic alert.

The XLT has the same standard and available bed/cab combos as the XL and for the same price increases. This is the highest trim level available with the Regular Cab.

Ford F-150 Lariat

The F-150 Lariat sports a starting price of $44,695. Standard features in the Lariat include leather upholstery, power-adjustable front seats, heated and ventilated front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, push-button start, remote start, a 12-inch digital gauge cluster, a 12-inch touch screen, and BoxLink adjustable tie-down cleats.

The Lariat is the lowest trim to come standard with the SuperCab. The middle bed length is also standard. You can get the long bed for $1,290. SuperCrew Lariat models start at $48,045 with the short bed and $48,300 with the middle bed length.

Ford F-150 King Ranch

The F-150 King Ranch starts at $56,330. King Ranch trims and higher only come in the SuperCrew cab style. The shortest bed length comes standard, and the 6.5-foot bed is a $300 upgrade.

The Limited comes with a power tailgate with a deployable step, trailer reverse guidance, trailer backup assist, a moonroof, a surround-view parking camera system, parallel and perpendicular park assist, and an 18-speaker Bang & Olufsen audio system.

Ford F-150 Tremor

The F-150 Tremor is an all-new model in this Ford's lineup, and it will be available in summer 2021. Pricing is not yet available. Tremor models will feature the SuperCrew cab, 5.5-foot bed, 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine, 10-speed automatic transmission, and four-wheel drive.

The Tremor is built to be a superb off-roader, and it comes standard with rugged features such as an upgraded suspension, 33-inch all-terrain tires, a front bash plate, a locking differential, hill descent control, and more.

More features will be available, such as one-pedal drive (makes rock crawling easier), trail control (like cruise control for off-roading), and trail turn assist (reduces the turning radius for low-speed maneuvers).

Which F-150 Cab Style Is Right for Me?

The Regular Cab, which seats up to three people, may suit buyers just looking for a work truck, but most people will want to look to the SuperCab or SuperCrew body style. Both have rear seats and can accommodate up to six people. If you're mostly hauling kids in the back, the SuperCab should suit you, but if you regularly have adults in the rear seats, you'll probably want the SuperCrew and its vastly superior legroom.

Though the number of passengers you're regularly ferrying will be far and away the most important factor in choosing a cab style, you'll also want to consider which beds and trims are available with each cab.

The Regular Cab style is only offered in the lowest two trims (XL and XLT), and it comes with either the 6.5- or 8-foot bed. The SuperCab is available in the XL, XLT, and Lariat trims and is available with the two longest beds. Every trim offers the SuperCrew cab with the shortest bed length, and this is the only cab style available with the 5.5-foot bed. The SuperCrew is also available with the 6.5-foot bed, and every trim but the Limited offers that combo.

Which F-150 Bed Length Is Right for Me?

You have three choices when it comes to bed length: 8 foot, 6.5 foot, and 5.5 foot. Not every bed is offered with every cab; the SuperCrew cab style is the only one to offer the shortest bed length, and it isn't available with the 8-foot bed. The middle bed length is offered with all three cab styles.

Unless you need the absolute best payload capacity, you're better off with 6.5-foot bed. It gives you the flexibility to choose whichever cab is best for you, and it's part of the configuration that unlocks the F-150's maximum towing capacity. Still, if you're picking a SuperCrew model, it might be worth opting for the 5.5-foot bed, which shaves down the truck's length and makes it a little easier to maneuver.

Which F-150 Model Is Best for Towing and Hauling?

The F-150 can tow more than all of its classmates, with a maximum capacity of 14,000 pounds when properly equipped. It also has incredible payload capacity: 3,325 pounds. For the most capable version of this Ford, you'll want a SuperCab or SuperCrew model, and you’ll want to opt for either the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 or the V8 engine. Most F-150s with those combinations will give you 13,000-plus pounds of towing capability and 2,900-plus pounds of hauling capacity.

If towing is your primary aim, you can achieve the maximum 14,000-pound rating with the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine in both SuperCab and SuperCrew models. The V8 engine allows nearly the same capability (13,000 pounds). The hybrid (12,700 pounds) and diesel (12,100 pounds) powertrains also offer plenty of capability.

If you want the best payload capacity, the best engine choice is the V8 (up to 3,325 pounds), with the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 a close second (up to 3,250 pounds). The other powertrains lag well behind those two with the diesel rated at 1,840 pounds and the hybrid at 2,120. And generally speaking, rear-wheel-drive models can haul more than their four-wheel-drive counterparts when outfitted with the same engine, cab, and bed.

Regular Cab models have a payload capacity that ranges from 1,705 to 3,325 pounds. The latter number is achieved with the 8-foot bed, V8 engine, and RWD. When it comes to tow rating, Regular Cab models top out at 13,100 pounds when equipped with the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6, 8-foot bed, and 4WD.

In SuperCab models, max payload ranges from 1,745 pounds (5.5-foot bed, 2.7-liter EcoBoost engine, and 4WD) to 3,010 pounds (6.5-foot bed, V8, and RWD). Max towing capacity – 14,000 pounds – is achieved with the 6.5-foot bed, RWD, and the larger twin-turbo V6.

SuperCrew models can haul 1,760 to 2,900 pounds. As with the SuperCab, SuperCrew models haul the most when configured with the 6.5-foot bed, V8, and RWD. SuperCrew models can also tow up to 14,000 pounds when outfitted with the larger EcoBoost V6, regardless of bed length.

Which F-150 Model Is Best for Off-Roading?

Any F-150 model with four-wheel drive is pretty capable off road. Every trim offers 4WD, and select trims let you add the FX4 package ($1,005), which includes features like a locking rear differential, hill descent control, more rugged shock absorbers, skid plates, and a rock crawl mode.

The all-new F-150 Tremor is a great option for off-roading, as it's more capable than regular F-150 models, even those equipped with the FX4 package. Tremor models come with four-wheel drive, an upgraded suspension, 33-inch all-terrain tires, a front bash plate, a locking differential, hill descent control, and more. You can add even more upgrades: One-pedal drive makes rock crawling easier, and trail turn assist reduces the turning radius for low-speed maneuvers. The Tremor is also slightly wider than the standard F-150 for added stability.

The Raptor has traditionally been the best F-150 when it comes to off-roading. However, Ford has not yet released details on this trim for 2021.

The Final Call

The 2021 Ford F-150 is fully redesigned and remains one of the best pickups out there. With unmatched towing and hauling abilities, a lineup of powerful engines, a well-built interior, and easy-to-use technology, there are simply no holes in the F-150's game. That's why it takes one of the top spots in our full-size pickup truck rankings, and that's why every truck shopper should give it a look.

Don't just take our word for it. Check out comments from some of the reviews that drive our rankings and analysis.

  • "The Ford F-150 … gives buyers the opportunity to find a combination that suits their needs and their budget. Lately, the Ram 1500's eTorque mild hybrid system, near-luxury interiors, and huge infotainment screen have wowed the public. The Chevrolet 1500's impressive variety of models and engines and its outstanding 5-Year Cost to Own data make that truck easy to recommend. Yet the F-150 is still the best equipped for work and leisure, and no other truck matches the Ford when it comes to work solutions tech and convenience and safety features." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "The new F-150 is a major refinement over the previous model. You can tell Ford put a ton of work into this new pickup truck, and it might be the most complete product the automaker currently offers. And while it may lag a bit in ride comfort compared to the Ram, it matches or beats that truck in nearly every other regard … Our test truck gave us just one of the myriad flavors of F-150, and showed that Ford should have no trouble maintaining its pickup truck sales lead." -- Road and Track
  • "But what really struck me is the maturity of the whole design. Ram is making its pickups over-the-top nice in an effort to atone for years of trucks with crappy interiors. GM, meanwhile, is trying to masquerade what cutting edge tech it has in what looks like the same truck you've been buying for years, pushrod V-8s and all. Ford, meanwhile, feels like the manufacturer with nothing to prove. It just keeps listening to its customers, coming up with more useful and creative features, and packing them into a truck that just works." -- Automobile Magazine
