As previously mentioned, the Ford F-150 is one of the most successful pick-ups on the US market, but the competition is still very strong. Customers can opt to go with models like the Dodge Ram 1500, the Chevrolet Silverado, or the GMC Sierra - all of which have a powerful history on the market as well.

Also refreshed for the 2013 model year, the Ram 1500 is one of the F-150’s most powerful competitors. It comes with either a 305 HP 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine or a 395 HP HEMI 5.7-liter V-8. As for the Silverado and Sierra - a revamp is planned for the 2014 model year, so until then, Ford can relax.

Be Smart, Check in Advance. CARFAX — Your Vehicle History.

CARFAX — Your Vehicle History Expert

Sometimes what you don't know can't hurt you, but that's not the case when buying a used car. As an independent vehicle history provider, at CARFAX we've made it our mission to tell you everything you need to know by uncovering as many events as possible from the previous life of a used car. Our primary goal is to help you get to know your next car from the inside out before deciding to make an investment that will be part of you and your family's everyday life. We believe your next car shouldn't be hiding anything from you.

CARFAX Vehicle History Reports contain over 28 billion historical records from 20 European countries, the US and Canada, which are updated daily with new information.

Even if you live in a country we don't collect vehicle data from, it's still always worth checking the Vehicle Identification Number without obligation. The used car import and export market is booming and many owners would be surprised to find out exactly what happened to their vehicle during its previous life abroad.

Privacy for Customers — Transparency over Vehicles

Let's be clear: Although we strive to find every detail of a vehicle's life so far, we are focused only on the vehicle's history, and do not collect any information on previous owners. The information we provide relates solely to the vehicle, its odometer reading, any accidents that have been covered up, where the vehicle comes from and much more — it never gets personal. We've uncovered irreparable damage several times in the past, but other times our vehicle history checks draw a blank — and sometimes that's actually a good thing.

Second Hand — Not Second Best

Did you know that considerably more used cars are sold than new cars? We think this second-hand system is nothing short of fantastic. However, it goes without saying that it gives rise to different methods and tactics: Some sellers will disguise a car that's been in an accident under a fresh coat of paint, tamper with the odometer or conceal theft. This is one of the less appealing aspects of buying second hand. Our goal is to establish trusting relationships between buyers and sellers, since this is the best way to help customers make the right decision. Your new car should be reliable and make you feel safe, as well as make you feel like you haven't paid too much.

But more than anything else, we don't want you or your family unknowingly sitting behind the wheel of a vehicle that isn't 100% safe. This is why we strive to take these vehicles off the road, which not only makes the used car market safer but our streets safer too.

CARFAX — 35+ Years of Experience in Vehicle Histories

CARFAX was founded in the US in 1984 and expanded into Europe in 2007. Around 100 team members spread across six European offices process vehicle information from 22 countries.

Fostering strategic partnerships with registration authorities, law enforcement agencies, government departments, insurance companies, inspection centers and numerous other leading companies around the world has enabled us to compile a unique international database for vehicle histories. We use this database to help make the used car market more transparent. We give everyone in the process of buying a used car access to what is currently the world's most comprehensive source for vehicle history reports, and is growing day by day.

We remain neutral and independent despite our partnerships — our sole purpose is help customers make an informed choice and ensure their safety and the safety of their family. This includes never collecting any personal details — we do not accept any PII from data sources amongst the information we provide about a vehicle. We ensure that data protection laws are observed at all times. Furthermore, we always collect our data in compliance with legal and regulatory frameworks — in all the countries in which we are active. We expressly distance ourselves from illegal activities such as data theft, scraping and hacking.

Ford F-150 Expert Review

Staff Writer

A vehicle with a long tradition of quality and performance, the 2013 Ford F-150 delivers all the features and options befitting a large pickup of its class. Several models with varying features are available to suit the needs of any consumer, including the luxury Platinum model which offers all the amenities one could want. An excellent work vehicle, the Ford F-150 is also practical for everyday driving as it offers a comfortable ride and can seat up to six passengers when properly configured. This year's F-150 also offers the usual excellent towing capacity, with optional upgrades to enhance this feature. Coming with a solid list of standard features, an assortment of great options and packages are available as well.

A new grille on most models, Sync with MyFord Touch, and available HID headlights. Ford adds the new upmarket Limited trim level this year: unique 22-inch wheels, box-side lettering, full-grain leather, and high-quality trim pieces. Besides HIDs and Sync, the SVT Raptor gets optional beadlock-capable wheels and a desert camouflage color.

The 2013 Ford F-150 is distinguished for its classic styling, including such prominent exterior features as a power dome hood and oversized Ford badge. Its large grille and slab sides accentuate the muscular style consumers in this market are looking for in a full-size pickup. Getting away from the softer look it took on in the nineties, the 2013 Ford F-150 looks as macho as ever. It is available in a regular cab, the SuperCab, or the four-door Super Crew. The F-150 can be fitted with either a 5.5-foot box, a 6.75-foot box, or an eight-foot box. Dual rear wheels are also available with the eight-foot box, which augments the F-150's towing capacity. Equipped with standard 17-inch wheels, 18-inch and 20-inch wheels are available as options as well. A trailer hitch receiver is also a standard features on the Ford F-150. Exterior options to spruce up the vehicle's exterior include power moon roof, rear parking sensors, PowerScope towing mirrors, and tubular side steps or running boards.

The 2013 Ford F-150 is just as tough looking on the inside. Featuring boxy outlines and an upright dash, the cabin is well laid out, with controls that are intuitive to use and gauges that are easy to read. Various trims offer a more luxurious arrangement, the Platinum and Limited in particular. The F-150 includes a roomy interior, and offers a choice of a front bench seat for three or bucket seats. The bench seat offers the option of an under-seat storage compartment and the bucket seats offers an available spacious center console large enough to fit a laptop computer. The upper trim levels such as the Lariat, King Ranch, Platinum, and Limited get MyFord Touch, which features an eight-inch touchscreen in the center of the dashboard. The other trims receive a new 4.2-inch screen on the dash for the stereo and climate control. The upgraded Lariat trim level features several additional goodies in its interior, including cooled and heated front seats with power and memory. Standard equipment includes air-conditioning and tilt and telescopic steering wheel. Interior options include navigation system, LCD display of fuel economy information as well as other details, and power-adjustable pedals. An AM/FM sound system is included as standard with the XL, while the better models feature CD and MP3 playback, as well as audio controls on the steering wheel. Cruise control comes equipped as a standard feature on all but the XL model.

The 2013 Ford F-150 includes all the basic safety features one would expect, such as four-wheel, anti-lock brakes, and electronic stability system with roll stability control, and traction control. The F-150 includes front-seat side-impact airbags and side curtain airbags as standard equipment as well. Rear parking sensors and a rearview camera can also be outfitted on the F-150 as options. The upgraded Platinum model features the SOS Post Crash Alert System and a remote anti-theft alarm system as standard equipment. Seeing no structural changes this year, crash test scores are expected to be the same. Last year the F-150 Super Crew received an overall score of four out of five stars from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, with three stars for frontal impact and five stars for side impact tests. This same vehicle was also awarded the designation as a Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, getting top scores in several categories.

Overall, the 2013 Ford F-150 packs a great performance no matter how the pickup is equipped, however this performance can be tweaked in a number of ways depending on the needs of the consumer. Offering lots of versatility in terms of its capabilities, several engines are available for the vehicle. Ford has been actively pushing the newer six-cylinder engines for the F-150 as they can be just a powerful as some of the V-8 predecessors equipped on models in the past, with better fuel economy. To start with, there is a 3.7-liter, six-cylinder engine, which is the same one found in the newer Mustangs. It produces an ample 302 horsepower and 278 lb-ft of torque. It runs quite smoothly and is fairly powerful for the average truck buyer, though it doesn't leave much room for towing power. It gets 17/23 mpg city/highway. Next is a turbocharged version of this engine which makes a better 365 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque. Towing capacity with this engine stands at an impressive 11,300 pounds. The 5.0-liter, eight-cylinder, also borrowed from the Mustang, includes the characteristic roar many seek out, and it makes 360 horsepower and 380 lb-ft of torque. Finally there is the hefty 6.2-liter, eight-cylinder which produces 411 horsepower and 434 lb-ft of torque. More power means less fuel economy. It gets an estimated 11/14 mpg city/highway. A six-speed, automatic transmission is standard across the lineup, and all but the 4.2-liter engines come with electric power steering, which offers more nimble steering and greater maneuverability.

Ford f 2013


Ford’s mega-selling F-150 pickup rolled into the 2013 model year packing no fewer than 10 distinct trim levels. Starting with the entry-level XL, the line climbs through the STX, XLT, FX2, Lariat, FX4, King Ranch, SVT Raptor, and Platinum trim levels before finishing off with the new-for-2013 Limited. Although the bewildering number of choices might appear to be overkill to the uninitiated—and we haven’t even touched on the myriad cab-and-bed combos or powertrain choices—Ford claims that more than 30 percent of F-150s have prices cresting $35,000, a statistic that’s bound to keep blue-oval showrooms stocked with as many luxed-out F-series trucks as bare-bones workhorses.

Start at the Top

Ford already had a good bead on what made the luxury-truck life one worth living, but we had to experience the new-for-’13 range-topping $53,890 4x4 Limited for ourselves, so we sidestepped the bulk of the options sheet and secured one for a test. Our rig added a few nominal extras, including a spray-in bedliner ($475), a tailgate extender ($250), a tailgate step ($375), and a coat of White Platinum Metallic paint ($595), so it landed wearing a $55,585 sticker. For thrifty readers, consider that a comparable F-150 XL with the SuperCrew cab, EcoBoost engine and six-speed auto, four-wheel drive, and 5.5-foot bed starts at a low $37,425, but you’ll have to add any hedonistic elements à la carte.

What you get for the roughly $16,000 difference is a check list of the latest and greatest in luxury and tech options available to pickup buyers: heated and cooled leather-trimmed front seats, heated 60/40-split rear seats, a power sunroof, a two-tone leather-wrapped steering wheel with power tilting and telescoping functions, ambient interior lighting, a rearview camera, a 110-volt power outlet, remote start, satellite radio, navigation, and Sync with MyFord Touch. Special shout-out to the range of the power-adjustable pedals and 10-way power driver’s seat: If we found one comfortable driving position, we found a half-dozen. If Shaquille O'Neal and Muggsy Bogues were forced to select and share a single vehicle for the rest of their lives due to some obscure NBA pension bylaw, this would be the one.

Size Matters

The sole Limited configuration is the four-door SuperCrew with a 5.5-foot bed, and like the rest of the F-150 lineup, it uses an independent front suspension with a stick axle and leaf springs at the rear. Steering is handled by a reasonably communicative electrically assisted rack-and-pinion setup (F-series trucks with the jumbo 6.2-liter V-8 engine still get the older hydraulic boost). It does a good job of taking the muscle out of three-point turns—which is good, because at 231.9 inches long overall and sporting a 144.5-inch wheelbase, you’ll be doing plenty of them. Gleaming polished aluminum 22-inch wheels are unique to the Limited, and it’d be a shame to scuff them up off-roading or doing, you know, actual work. Sturdy, power-deployable running boards tuck under the doors.

All F-150 Limiteds leave the factory with Ford’s 365-hp, 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 engine and six-speed automatic transmission. All-wheel drive costs $3275. (If you can deal with the shame of an F-150 Platinum, you can order the SuperCrew with the standard 5.0-liter V-8, the 6.2-liter V-8, or the EcoBoost V-6, not to mention the choice of a 6.5-foot bed.) All Limiteds get an electronic-locking 3.73 rear axle at no extra cost, and such trucks also include a trailer-towing package rated for a hefty 7300 pounds. Max payload is 1300 pounds.
