By 2024, it will be an even more high-tech car for people who want to buy a truck. One clear sign of this is the engine bay, which has turbocharged engines and even a hybrid choice. A V-8 engine is still available upon request, but most F-150s come with an EcoBoost V-6 blower that powers the wheels. There are more signs of modernity inside the car’s interior. All models come with a 12.0-inch touchscreen for entertainment. For a monthly fee, you can enable hands-free driving, which lets the car drive you down the highway. The most popular pickup truck in the US can carry a lot of stuff and comes in so many trim levels that there is almost a model for every budget. But since all of the cars that compete with the F-150 do the same things, picking the best brand of car for you comes down to personal taste. The air suspension in the Ram 1500 makes it ride smoother, but the Chevrolet Silverado comes with more connectivity and driving assistance features as standard. But Ford’s best-selling F-150 is now much more advanced than it used to be. It has features and abilities that make it a real competitor in the full-size pickup truck battle. What's New? For 2024, the F-150 has been remade with new grilles, exterior lighting, wheel designs, and other changes that make the car look better from the outside. The updated form is more sophisticated overall, but it stays true to the F-150 plan. A new feature around the back called Pro Access Tailgate makes it easier to get to things in the bed, even when a trailer is attached. This is because a spring on the side of the tailgate lets users open a small part of it. A turbocharged 2.7-liter V-6 engine has replaced the base gas V-6 engine. This engine used to be an optional update. There is no longer a choice for the diesel engine that was there before. There is still a 5.0-liter V-8, a hybrid V-6 system, and a turbocharged 3.5-liter V-6 if you need more speed. It will be possible to drive the F-150 without using your hands for the first time with Ford’s Blue Cruise feature. Also, the big 12.0-inch infotainment screen is now standard across the whole lineup, where it used to be a choice. You can now get a new system that includes a head-up display to help you find your stolen truck. The off-road-focused Tremor car will be back in 2024 with a new front fender design and a reworked grille with orange accents. An extra light bar and a front-mounted winch are two more Tremor add-on options. Pros and Cons Pros There are fuel, hybrid, and electric powertrains. A smart and cutting-edge inside. That’s silly. A Raptor R. Cons At most, small changes to how things look. The hybrid stop pedal is hard to press. The Raptor R doesn’t use much gas. Engine, Transmission, and Performance The 2024 F-150 comes with a 325-hp twin-turbo 2.7-liter V-6 engine as standard. Other engine options include a 400-hp 5.0-liter V-8, a 400-hp twin-turbo 3.5-liter V-6, and a 400-hp hybrid vehicle with an electric motor and a twin-turbo 3.5-liter V-6. If you choose an engine for your F-150, it comes with a 10-speed automatic gear. Sources say that the hybrid car can go up to 700 miles on a single tank of gas and have a generator on board that can be used to power building sites or during blackouts. For any of the F-150’s engine choices, customers can choose whether they want rear- or four-wheel drive. The hybrid Lariat we tested went from 0 to 60 mph in 5.4 seconds on our test track. It had four-wheel drive. During our test drive, the car was easy to control, and the ride was smooth. High-end cars, like the King Ranch, have variable-assist steering technology that makes the steering feel more responsive at low speeds. The Tremor version can go off-road the best, thanks to its 33-inch all-terrain tires, improved suspension, locking rear differential, and four-wheel drive transfer case based on the fierce F-150 Raptor. On our test track, the Tremor went from 0 to 60 mph in 5.3 seconds, which is 0.1 seconds faster than the Raptor. Safety Ford cars have a lot of features that help the driver, but not all of them are necessary. As buyers move up the F-150’s trim levels, more features become available, like a camera that lets you watch your trailer while you’re on the go. Ford also has Blue Cruise, which lets you drive without using your hands, but you have to pay a monthly or yearly fee to use it. Watch the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) websites to learn more about the F-150’s crash test scores. Some important safety factors are: Most automatic emergency brakes can tell who is on the road. There is a lane departure indicator and a lane-keeping aid. You can use both hands-free drive mode and adaptive cruise control. Internal and External Cargo Capacity The luxurious cabins of the F-150 and the Ram 1500 are very similar. This is especially true in the Ford’s higher-end King Ranch, Platinum, and Limited trim levels. There are a lot of storage spaces inside the cabin and other features that make life easy for people who use the F-150 as a mobile office. For instance, on a 10-speed automatic, the shift lever can be folded down into the center console, making a big, flat work area between the seats. In the same way, the F-150 has front seats that can be folded down to make a bed. There is plenty of room for people, with the four-door crew-cab body style being the best for families and having the most space. An optional 7.2-kW onboard generator can be added to the F-150’s bed and used to power things at tailgating parties or on the job site. Fuel Economy and Actual MPG The EPA says that the F-150 with the turbocharged 2.7-liter V-6 engine can get up to 20 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway. It is said that the twin-turbo 3.5-liter V-6 can get up to 18 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway. The hybrid type will get up to 25 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway. Our strict testing program includes a highway fuel economy route at 75 mph. The twin-turbo 3.5-liter Tremor model got 19 mpg on this route. The F-150 hybrid’s real-world mpg can be judged after we’ve driven it. Infotainment and Connectivity All of the cars come with a 12.0-inch touchscreen screen and a better version of Ford’s Sync 4 software. This is the same as the optional 12.0-inch vertically oriented screen on the Ram 1500. The Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra, on the other hand, have bigger 13.4-inch screens. You can get a Wi-Fi hotspot, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto as standard. You can also get GPS, SiriusXM radio, and Bang & Olufsen sound as extras. With the new Sync 4 software, fleet users can get over-the-air updates for new software releases, onboard telematics to help keep track of where vehicles are and how they are being used, and traffic and weather reports through an optional navigation system. Towing and Payload Capacity If you choose the extra 400-horsepower twin-turbo 3.5-liter V-6 engine, your F-150 pickup can pull up to 13,500 pounds. The hybrid model can pull up to 12,700 pounds, and the old-fashioned 5.0-liter V-8 can pull up to 13,000. The most goods that can fit is 2455 pounds. Because it can tow and carry a lot of weight, the 2018 F-150 can compete with big trucks like the Chevrolet Silverado 1500, GMC Sierra 1500, and Ram 1500. Price and How to Choose There are different body styles and bed lengths for the F-150. Even though the XLT model is better than the base XL work truck, the Lariat’s extra features make it more appealing. Although some customers might think the price is too high, it’s the best deal in terms of both price and benefits.
