    Ford’s F-150 has long been a popular truck, and it would be easy for the company to coast on that success, but instead of resting on its laurels, it continues to put a great deal of thought into every new iteration of this pickup from year to year. The 2023 Ford F-150 is no exception. While the base model isn’t getting any significant changes, having just undergone a refresh for the 2021 model year, the off-road lineup is expanding with the introductory-level Rattler package and the extra-powerful Raptor R.

    Overall, the F-150 is a versatile full-size truck that can serve you well whether you’re looking to use it for work, play, or both. It’ll draw you in with impressive stats and keep you around with thoughtful details. Being tough as nails may be a requirement on the worksite, but it’s sure nice to have a spacious cabin to stretch out in during breaks, and with available fold-flat seats, you can even catch a few winks if need be. On the other hand, the F-150’s interior is just as ready to work as its exterior, with a gear shift that folds flat so you can unlock the full potential of the center console, creating a large, flat surface that can comfortably accommodate a laptop.

    If you’re heading out on an adventure, you can decide whether to fill your seats with family and friends or flip and fold them to store more gear. Once you get behind the wheel of an F-150, you’ll see what all the hype is about. So come to Kings Ford and let us show you around the ins and outs of America’s favorite truck.

  • Powertrains

    The 2023 F-150 can be outfitted with one of several capable powertrains. Each one has its own unique features and benefits, so you can pick the one that strikes the right balance between power, efficiency, and budget. Let’s take a look at what these engines have to offer.

    The 3.3L V6

    The base engine is a 3.3L V6 that delivers 290 horsepower and 265 lb-ft of torque. It comes standard on the XL and XLT trims. If you’re on a tight budget, then you may end up with this option by default, but don’t feel like you’re getting anything less than a quality piece of machinery. With this capable V6 under the hood, the F-150 can tow up to 8,200 lbs, which is more than many truck drivers will ever need.

    The 2.7L Turbo V6

    For a little more power, you can opt for the 2.7L EcoBoost V6. Although it doesn’t displace as much as the 3.3L, it brings an impressive 325 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque to the table, thanks to quality engineering and the Ford port-fuel and direct-injection system. This engine is an available option for the XL and XLT and comes standard on the Lariat.

    The 5.0L V8 and 3.5L Turbo V6

    The King Ranch, Platinum, and Tremor trims come standard with a 5.0L V8 under the hood, giving you 400 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque to play with. That gives you a maximum payload rating of 3,325 lbs and a towing capacity of up to 13,000 lbs. For a more efficient alternative, you can instead opt for the available 3.5L EcoBoost V6, which boasts ratings of 400 horsepower and 500 lb-ft of torque for a maximum towing capacity of 14,000 lbs.

    The 3.5L Turbo V6 Hybrid

    The luxurious Limited trim comes equipped with Ford’s 3.5L PowerBoost Turbo V6 hybrid powertrain, which combines traditional gas power with futuristic electric energy. It doesn’t skimp on stats, providing 430 horsepower and 570 lb-ft of torque, with a maximum payload rating of 2,120 lbs and a maximum towing capacity of 12,700 lbs. The hybrid trim is also an available option on lower trims from the Platinum all the way down to the XL.

    The 3.5L High-Output V6

    The Legendary F-150 Raptor comes equipped with a 3.5L High-Output EcoBoost V6 that delivers 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque. Importantly, it delivers torque even when you’re low in the rev range, so you have the grip you need when slowly crawling over boulders or traversing tight trails. The engine is also equipped with high-power fans built into the cooling system that is ready to handle your most intense adventures.

    The 5.2L High-Output Supercharged V8

    Taking things a step up, the new Raptor R comes with a 5.2L Supercharged V8 that brings a mind-blowing 700 horsepower and 640 lb-ft of torque to the table. Ford proudly claims that this is the most torque-dense supercharged V8 ever put into a production pickup, so you can have desert-running power like no truck before has been able to offer. This beast of an engine is also an available option for the regular Raptor trim.

  • Bed Capability

    One of the most important features of any pickup truck is its bed. The F-150’s box is great at its original intended purpose, hauling cargo, but it’s also versatile enough to handle other functions well. Properly equipped, it can be a top-notch mobile workbench or a decked-out tailgate party paradise. It’s all up to you.

    Multiple Bed Sizes to Choose From

    The first thing you get to decide when designing your F-150 is how big the bed will be. You can choose from a compact 5½-foot box, an extra-long 8-foot box, or a standard 6½-foot box. A larger bed can obviously accommodate more cargo and bulkier equipment, but a shorter bed makes the truck easier to drive and maneuver and can give you better fuel economy due to its smaller size. At the end of the day, you need to consider what you’ll actually be using your truck for so you can pick the size that’s right for you.

    Pro Power Onboard

    With Pro Power Onboard, your bed isn’t just an ordinary box: it’s a mobile generator that can power your worksite or campsite. A 2.0kW system is available with some of the F-150’s gas-powered engines. It comes with up to four available 120V/20A outlets, so if you’re working on a construction project, you could hook up a reciprocating saw, a hammer drill, a jigsaw, and a sander. On the other hand, if you’re kicking back at a Bearcats tailgate, you can keep all your refreshments and entertainment on hand with a sandwich maker, blender, game console, and TV. If you opt for the hybrid powertrain, a more powerful 2.4kW version of Pro Power Onboard comes standard, giving you even more power to play with. The hybrid also allows you to upgrade to the optional 7.2kW version, which features up to six outlets and lets you power seriously heavy-duty equipment so you can get your welding done wherever you need.

    Built for Getting Work Done

    Even if you don’t opt for an electrified tailgate, it’s still a useful work surface. Built with durable composite construction materials, the F-150’s tailgate is loaded with practical touches that make it easy to work with. The surface is flat but has a grain to prevent slips. Several tools are built right into its design, including a cup holder, bottle openers, rulers, and a place to store your mobile devices while you work.

    The Rattler

    New to the F-150’s lineup for 2023 is an entry-level off-road option: the F-150 Rattler. This package is based on the XL trim and features skid plates to protect underbody components, hill descent control for steep declines, and specially-tuned shock absorbers to keep your ride smooth when the trails get bumpy. It’s also equipped with all-terrain tires, standard four-wheel drive, and an electronic rear-locking differential, so you’ll have the traction you need to tackle rough terrain. The Rattler also has plenty of style, including rattlesnake-inspired graphics and dual exhaust in the rear. If you’re new to the world of off-roading and aren’t ready to commit to the Raptor quite yet, this is a great way to dip your toes into the water of this exciting pastime.

    The Tremor

    First introduced for the 2021 model year, the Tremor trim continues to offer rugged power and bold style. Under the hood, you’ll find a powerful V8 that delivers up to 400 horsepower and is paired with a ten-speed automatic transmission that features drag-reduction action and three overdrive gears. Monotube front shocks pair with twin-tube rear shocks, designed to provide the optimal level of damping and keep you in control even in extreme circumstances. Its stylish 18-inch aluminum wheels coated with a dark matte finish are surrounded by 33-inch General Grabber all-terrain tires that are ready for anything and give you additional ground clearance so you can sail right over obstacles in your path.

    The Raptor

    It’s hard to think of the legendary F-150 Raptor as a mere trim level: this truck has been adjusted for tackling off-roading from tip to tailgate, sporting extra-wide fenders, a five-link rear suspension with extra-long trailing arms, and a High-Output V6 capable of bringing 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque to the table. Its sport-tuned shock absorbers use state-of-the-art electronic control technology to deliver position-sensitive damping that can react quickly to changes in terrain and resist heat buildup, so you can speed through the desert with confidence. With selectable drive modes, you can get the settings just right for everything from normal driving to sport performance, towing and hauling, tackling slippery surfaces, general off-road driving, baja cruising, and rock crawling.

    The Raptor R

    New for the 2023 model year, the Raptor R is the most powerful F-150 Raptor ever offered, thanks to its 5.2L Supercharged V8 engine, which produces 700 horsepower and 640 lb-ft of torque. Its FOX Live Valve shocks are specifically tuned to not just handle but take advantage of the engine’s power, and working together with other elements, like standard 37-inch tires that provide extra ground clearance, they give you ideal control over any terrain. The Raptor R’s unique styling, including exclusive graphics and a black interior with signature Ford Performance Code Orange Accents, lets the world know that this is a tough truck that is not to be taken lightly.
