    Even legendary automotive manufacturers have their ups and downs, but there's one manufacturer whose successes are so palpable they can be felt around the world: Ford. Ford has a history in the industry dating back to the earliest days of automobiles, and out of its entire repertoire of SUVs, trucks, sports cars, EVs, and more, there's none greater than the F-series pickup trucks––a line of trucks with a history stretching back to the late 1940s. At this point, you've undoubtedly heard about Ford's best-selling vehicle: the F-150, which isn't only the best-selling model in the Ford lineup but is the best-selling model in the entire United States. The 2023 Ford F-150 is everything you'd expect from the nation’s best-selling truck, from versatility and reliability to power and efficiency.

    The 2023 Ford F-150 is available in nine trim levels, ranging from the affordable XL to the luxurious Limited. For more adventurous drivers, there is the Tremor, the ever-popular Raptor, and the all-new supercharged Raptor R. The F-150 is by no means the cheapest truck in Ford's lineup, but drivers interested in the F-150 likely already know this and understand that the F-150 is leagues more powerful than trucks like the Ford Maverick and Ford Ranger.

  • Performance

    Base Engine Options

    The 2023 F-150 has plenty of performance on offer from the powerful EcoBoost turbocharged engines, the popular "Coyote" V8, and the available PowerBoost hybrid powertrain. Every engine available for the 2023 F-150 comes paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission, which helps keep your ride feeling smooth yet provides the punchy acceleration crucial for proper towing. The base 3.3L V6 engine provides 290 hp and 265 lb-ft of torque, giving it a maximum towing capacity of 8,200 lbs and a maximum payload capacity of 1,985 lbs. As an average-size V6, fuel efficiency holds up well, earning the 2023 F-150 EPA-estimated ratings of up to 19 MPG in the city and 24 MPG on the highway.

    Should you be looking for more power than the base V6 engine provides, you can opt for a turbocharged 2.7L EcoBoost V6 engine that provides better horsepower, torque output, fuel economy, towing capacity, and payload capacity––the whole nine yards. The turbocharged 2.7L creates 325 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque, has a towing capacity of 10,100 lbs, and gets EPA-estimated ratings of up to 20 MPG in the city and 26 MPG on the highway. While the turbocharged 2.7L V6 engine provides a far better experience than the base engine, you still have a few options for additional power should you wish.

    More Power on Tap

    The 5.0L V8 engine, commonly known by its nickname "Coyote," is a popular choice amongst F-150 drivers. The V8 engine creates 400 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque, which results in an even more noticeable upgrade to a maximum towing capacity of 13,000 lbs. Additionally, it gives the 2023 F-150 its highest available payload capacity of 3,325 lbs. Fuel efficiency is expectedly the lowest of the bunch, but it retains ample ratings of up to 17 MPG in the city and 25 MPG on the highway.

    The remaining two available powertrain options for the F-150 are variations of a turbocharged 3.5L V6. The first variation is the engine in its traditional EcoBoost form, while the other is paired with a battery and motors to create the hybrid PowerBoost. Starting with the turbocharged 3.5L V6 engine in its base form, the F-150 gets 400 hp and 500 lb-ft of torque and a generous towing capacity of 14,000 lbs––the most the F-150 allows for. In the F-150 Raptor, a special High Output version of this engine delivers 450 hp and 510 lb-ft of torque for dune-jumping performance.

    What's impressive to many aspiring F-150 drivers is the PowerBoost hybrid's ability to hold up in performance while providing the best fuel efficiency of the group. With the hybrid powertrain, the F-150 gets 430 hp and 570 lb-ft of torque. This allows for a maximum towing capacity of 12,700 lbs and a payload capacity of 2,120 lbs. The fuel efficiency of the hybrid is expectedly excellent, with its ratings of up to 25 MPG in the city and on the highway.

  • Cargo and Cab

    Three Bed Options

    The 2023 F-150 doesn't break from its immediate predecessors in regard to cargo space. The same three bed sizes as before are available, starting with the smallest option, a 5.5-foot short bed that allows for 52.8 cu.ft. of space. Cargo space is crucial, even if you plan on hauling most of your belongings in a trailer, so make sure you pick wisely. While 52.8 cu.ft. of space may be enough for many aspiring shoppers, those who want more are encouraged to opt for either a 6.5-foot bed or an eight-foot long bed.

    The 6.5-foot bed provides a solid middle ground between the shortest and longest beds, with 62.3 cu.ft. of available cargo space. While opting for the eight-foot long bed means you'll be driving a much larger truck, it may be worth the 77.4 cu.ft. of space you'd get depending on your wants and needs. That is an almost 50% increase over the smallest bed size, so this decision matters more than you think.

    Three Cab Options

    The amount of headroom and legroom in the front row of the F-150 models are mostly similar throughout, with a couple of minor exceptions, like the Raptor having fractionally less shoulder room. Opting for the Regular Cab means you're ditching a back-row in favor of a three-seat capacity, but the SuperCab and SuperCrew models can seat five to six people depending on your seating arrangement preference. Regardless of which cab size you purchase, you'll get 40.8 inches of headroom in the front row, along with 66.7 inches of shoulder room. The front row of the 2023 F-150 also has 62.5 inches of hip room and a total of 43.9 inches of legroom.

    F-150 models that support a rear row of seating have more variation in things like legroom, with the SuperCab offering 33.5 inches of legroom against the SuperCrew's 43.6 inches. The total hip room remains identical at 62.6 inches on both the SuperCrew and SuperCab, but the former has 66.0 inches of shoulder room against 66.1 inches on the latter. However, the Raptor––which is only available in the SuperCrew configuration––lowers this further to 65.8 inches.

    Advanced Technology Comes Standard

    Part of the 2023 F-150's success against its competition is its features, many of which come standard. Ford trucks offer some of the greatest value in the market, and the 2023 model is no exception, with a host of standard features coming with the XL trim. For example, the F-150 XL includes Dynamic Hitch Assist to make the hitching process easier than ever––no longer do you need an extra set of eyes on the outside to tell you when to stop. Dynamic Hitch Assist works alongside the integrated Rear View Camera, which is displayed on the standard eight-inch infotainment center. The 2023 Ford F-150 uses the latest SYNC 4 system in every trim.

    The upgrade to SYNC 4 infotainment center has many benefits, but the most noticeable is the faster performance that makes the old infotainment centers feel sluggish by comparison. SYNC 4 also allows for newer features like wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, both of which come standard with the F-150. The standard eight-inch infotainment center is an excellent tool for many drivers, but those who opt for a higher trim will get a larger 12-inch screen, which has been a mainstay of the F-150 since its introduction in 2021.

    The truck also comes standard with the Ford Co-Pilot360 2.0 suite of driver-assist features like BLIS (Blind Spot Information System). This handy addition watches your blind spot and alerts you to hidden vehicles, and with Cross Traffic Alert built in, the same sensors will watch out for any vehicles passing by when you're reversing out of a parking space. The Co-Pilot360 features can help make traveling safer, whether you're out for the long haul or simply going for a Sunday drive.
