The 2013 Ford F-150 carries the torch of the 12th F-series generation into its third year with a sturdy array of specs and some new features such as standard Hill Descent Control, SYNC with bigger controls, and refreshed grille designs. Kitted out with the standard 4 engine choices Ford installs in its F-150s, the 2013 includes two V6s, an aluminum block DOHC 3.7L and a 3.5L Ecoboost V6 delivering 365 horses thanks to its double turbochargers. The V8 engines measure up to tough towing jobs with a 5.0L DOHC and a 6.2L SOHC variant. The base MSRP ranges from $24,070 to $53,300, and the line includes no less than 9 trims, including the XL, STX, XLT, Lariat, FX2, FX4, King Ranch, SVT Raptor (off-road pickup), and the 2013 Limited. Box lengths include the standard three choices found on F-150s, 5.5 feet, 6.5 feet, and 8.0 feet. The engines develop from 302 horsepower to 411 horsepower, while fuel efficiency lies over a fairly narrow band, with miles per gallon (mpg) ranging from 14/19 city/highway to 17/23 city/highway. This hardworking pickup year and model, when properly fitted out, offers a maximum payload capacity of 3,120 pounds and a peak towing capability of 11,300 lbs. Both driving and towing are made safer by the 2013 F-150's 4 wheel anti-lock brake system (ABS) and 4 wheel vented disc brakes, while Aggressive Deceleration Fuel Shut-Off is standard on all engines for this model year.
