Overview

Overview

Besides being the top-selling vehicle in the United States by a very wide margin, the 2013 Ford F-150 is also the best-selling full-size pickup truck. With three cabs, three bed lengths, two each V6 and V8 engine options, the Ford F-150 dominates the large truck market. With a redesigned F-150 more than a year away (probably debuting for the 2015 model year), the 2013 F-150 sports a revised front grille; new features and new top-end Limited trim level.

What Experts Think

Automotive experts agree that the 2013 Ford F-150 has one of the most diverse engine lineups among full-size pickups. They also agree that the F-150 is a top choice for anyone looking for a full-size pickup.

"Besides the numerous F-150 choices, ownership comes with plenty of benefits. Fuel efficiency with any of the available engines is quite good for a pickup and the cabin is comfortable, with well-placed controls. New and wider availability of features for 2013 further bolster the truck's appeal, though one could argue that the addition of the oft-aggravating MyFord Touch infotainment interface would deduct points." (Edmunds)

"If you like variety and choice, the 2013 Ford F-150 offers the most comprehensive lineup in the industry. High-end interiors and cutting-edge infotainment and audio options further distance the F-150 from other trucks." (Kelley Blue Book)

"The Ford F-150 continues to excel for its depth and breadth of engines, features and capability. The new Limited model is an interesting play that should compete well against the likes of other ultra-high-end rigs, such as the GMC Sierra Denali and Ram 1500 Laramie Longhorn." (Consumer Guide)

"The F-150's 5.0-liter V8 and V6 turbo make the truck quick. With either powertrain, the F-150 became a bit quieter and more refined...The crew-cab version is very roomy, but the step-in is high. Handling is still clumsy but secure enough." (Consumer Reports)

"Smooth and quiet, the Ford F-150 is comfortable on bumpy streets around town, over rugged terrain at construction sites, around farms and over utility roads, and on the open highway. Its steering is nicely weighted and requires little correction on the highway, making it nice for long cross-country tows. The cabs are comfortable, whether ordered with leather or cloth." (AOL Autos)

What Owners Say

Pleasing full-size truck owners is no small task, but the 2013 Ford F-150, in its plethora of different configurations, is up to the task. Comments by consumers on review sites such as Edmunds, Kelley Blue Book, Cars.com and Yahoo Autos prove the point.

Highlights of owner favorites include the Sony subwoofer, sunroof and navigation on the SuperCrew 4WD, touch screen and auto start, HID headlamps, durability, pulling and hauling power of the 5.0-liter V8, ventilated seats, step-assist tailgate, interior room, rear legroom and comfort during long drives, overall fit and finish, surprisingly economical and overall value for the price.

Negatives include bed height, gas mileage, handling in windy conditions, carpet, Sync, MyFord Touch, and how expensive certain trims are - especially when loaded up with options.

Model/Trim Lineup

In the view of most of the automotive press, the possible configurations of the 2013 Ford F-150 full-size pickup border on the staggering. There are three body styles, three bed lengths, four engines, rear-wheel drive and four-wheel drive, as well as an extensive list of standard and optional features to choose from.

F-150 body styles include regular cab, extended cab (called SuperCab), and crew cab (called SuperCrew). Regular and SuperCabs are available with either a 6.5-foot or an 8-foot cargo bed. SuperCrew models come in 6.5-foot and 5.5-foot beds. The F-150 Raptor model only comes with a 5.5-foot bed.

Nine trim levels are offered: base XL, STX, XLT, FX2, FX4, Lariat, King Ranch, Raptor, Platinum and Limited.

The base XL is mostly intended as a work truck and includes as standard equipment 17-inch steel wheels, vinyl upholstery, air conditioning, a tilt-only steering wheel, and an AM/FM radio. The SuperCrew XL gets power side mirrors, power front windows, remote keyless entry, and an overhead console.

In the F-150 STX, all of the above is included, plus alloy wheels, cruise control, cloth upholstery, a 40/20/40 front seat, a CD player and auxiliary audio jack, additional body-colored trim on the exterior and, on SuperCab, rear power windows.

More comfort features are added in the XLT: a keyless entry keypad, Sync voice-activation system and Bluetooth, chrome exterior trim, automatic headlights, and fog lights.

Moving up to the FX trim means the addition of 18-inch wheels, a trailer tow package, a leather-wrapped and telescoping steering wheel with additional controls, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a trip computer with color display, satellite radio, household power outlet, front bucket seats, and a six-way power-adjustable driver seat. FX four-wheel drive models also get an electronic locking rear differential, skid plates and hill descent control.

Next up is the Lariat trim which adds leather upholstery, 10-way power-adjustable and heated front seats, driver seat memory functions, the MyFord Touch electronics interface, dual USB ports, dual-zone automatic climate control, power-adjustable pedals and a power-sliding rear window. Not included are any of the off-road equipment in the FX.

The F-150 King Ranch has unique badging inside and out and adds chrome exterior trim, running boards, wood interior trim, ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, a power-adjustable steering wheel, remote ignition, premium Sony sound system, a rearview camera, power-folding and heated auto-dimming mirrors, rear parking sensors, and running boards.

The Platinum trim features 20-inch wheels, automatic wipers, a sunroof, a navigation system, xenon headlights and power-deployable running boards.

The new Limited trim, which Ford claims is its most luxurious pickup ever built, includes navigation, rain-sensing wipers, HID headlights, red and black leather seating and polished 22-inch wheels.

The F-150 Raptor is an extreme off-road truck with the following standard equipment: 17-inch wheels with all-terrain tires, fixed aluminum running boards, high-performance suspension components, shift-on-the-fly transfer case, an auxiliary equipment switch panel, unique interior upholstery trim and unique exterior treatments. Missing, however, are some of the luxury features in the Platinum and Limited trims.

Most features on higher-trim models can be added to lower trims. In addition, other options include a rear-seat entertainment system, a cargo management system, a stowable bed extender, Ford's Work Solutions system, and a payload and towing package.

Performance

Reviewers comment favorably on the fuel-efficiency of the four gasoline engines (two V6s and two V8s) offered in the 2013 Ford F-150. The "reasonable" fuel economy is aided, in no small part, by the addition of a six-speed automatic transmission.

The base engine is a 302-horsepowr 3.7-liter V6 that produces 278 pound-feet of torque. With rear-wheel drive, EPA-estimated fuel economy is 17 mpg city/23 mpg highway/19 mpg combined. In four-wheel drive (4WD) configuration, the estimated fuel economy is 16/21/18 mpg.

The available (standard on the Limited) twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine, unique to the segment, delivers 365 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque. EPA-estimated fuel economy is 16/22/18 mpg in rear-wheel drive and 15/21/17 mpg in 4WD.

The 360-horsepower 5.0-liter V8 produces 380 pound-feet of torque. In rear-wheel drive, fuel economy is estimated at 15/21/17 mpg. Four-wheel drive reduces that to 14/19/16 mpg.

The other V8 engine, standard on the F-150 Raptor, is a 411-horsepower 6.2-liter V8 that delivers 434 pound-feet of torque. Fuel economy is EPA-estimated at 13/18/15 mpg in RWD models, but is reduced to 12/16/13 in the Raptor.

Rear-wheel drive is standard on all but the FX4 and SVT Raptor. A part-time 4WD system, available on volume F-150 models, includes low-range gearing for use off-road, but should not be left engaged on dry pavement. The Lariat, King Ranch, Platinum and Limited models offer a similar 4WD setup, but also add an "all-wheel drive" mode that can automatically switch power from the rear wheels to the front as necessary. The SVT Raptor, meanwhile, includes a unique 4WD system that can remain engaged on dry pavement. This system also includes additional heavy-duty components specifically designed for severe off-road use.

Tow ratings for the F-150 models range from 5,500 pounds (in the 3.7-liter V6) up to 11,300 pounds with the 6.2-liter V8 and turbocharged V6 (when properly equipped).

Interior

Depending on the trim selected, there is high praise and a few complaints regarding the interior of the 2013 Ford F-150. The SuperCrew is especially lauded for its roominess, with some auto critics noting that it out-measures the space found in some full-size sedans. Rear-seat legroom is like riding in a limousine, said one review, while the mechanically-articulated second-row seat flips up and out of the way to deliver an impressive 57.6 cubic feet of storage space behind the front seats.

The SuperCab is fairy roomy, although with less generous legroom. Some auto critics find the SuperCab's rear-hinged clamshell doors to be less useful than conventional front-hinged doors in the Tundra Double Cab and Ram Quad Cab.

Most auto reviewers say the seats in the 2013 Ford F-150 are among the most comfortable in the class. As for controls, the knobs and switches were designed to be a bit oversized, spaced wide apart so they are easy to reach. The navigation system includes an 8-inch screen that offers "impressive" clarity.

For an office-on-wheels, the center console is large enough for two-plus tablets or laptops and slotted side ridges can hold hanging files. The F-150 has two 12-volt outlets, one on the dash, and the other in the console. There is also an available 110-volt outlet.

In the new Limited trim, there is almost every conceivable option included as standard.

Safety & Reliability

In government crash tests, the 2013 Ford F-150 SuperCrew received an overall rating of four out of five stars. The side crash protection rating was five stars, while frontal protection earned four stars (three stars for the SuperCrew 4WD and SuperCab 4WD), and four stars for rollover protection (three stars for Regular Cab 4WD, SuperCrew 4WD and SuperCab 4WD). The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) awarded the F-150 SuperCrew model with its top rating of "Good" in frontal-offset, side-impact and roof strength tests and designated it a Top Safety Pick.

Standard safety features for all 2013 Ford F-150 trucks includes front-seat side and full-length side curtain airbags, four-wheel antilock disc brakes, stability control (includes roll stability control), rollover sensor (designed to deploy the side curtain airbags in the event of an impending rollover), and trailer sway control. The Ford Sync system includes an emergency crash notification that places an automatic 911 call when paired with a compatible cell phone.

As for reliability, the 2013 Ford F-150 has received a three-and-a-half Power circle score in the J.D. Power Predicted Reliability rating. This means the F-150 rates between better than most and about average in reliability for the class.
