Ford F-150 Pick-Up Truck as Family Vehicle?

2019 Ford F-150

When you think about owning a family vehicle, be honest, does a large and in charge truck like the Ford F-150 come to mind? If you answered no to this question, then you just might want to change your perspective. Thanks to being more roomy, comfortable, luxurious, capable and even safer than ever before the most popular pickup truck in the country is now the most family-friendly pick-up available.

Roomy & Comfortable

Along with being a strong bread winner when it comes to being a powerful workhorse, the F-150 offers so many more benefits that could have your family considering Ford’s most popular full-size truck as its newest family vehicle. Depending upon the cabin style chosen, both you and your passengers will find plenty of space, including for large and tall occupants. The driving position is also adjustable enough to keep smaller drivers from feeling as if they are in a cavern. The backseat of the 2019 Ford F-150 also offers child safety seat accommodations with lower LATCH anchors that are prominent and easily reached.

Despite not being a SUV, this Ford truck also offers lots of storage options, including a deep center console bin with a removable tray and a handy nook forward of the transmission selector.

Outperforming the SUV Segment

While the sport utility vehicle (SUV) market is rapidly booming right now, the newest family vehicle is actually outperforming this vehicle thanks to impressive engine options like the base 3.3-liter V6, which is capable of 290 HP and 265 lb.-ft. of torque. For those who need a bit more oomph for added towing capability might be interested in stepping it up to one of the three turbocharged possibilities, including the most powerful turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 that offers up to 450 HP and 510 lb.-ft. of torque. For those who prefer a family truck that can also serve as a work truck, may want to opt for the new turbocharged 3.0-liter diesel-powered V6.

More Capable Than Ever Before

Each of these engines mentioned above is mated to either a six or 10-speed automatic transmission to offer some of the most capable towing power ever available. So, if your loved ones enjoy spending family vacations at the lake or RV camping, you have found the ideal family pickup truck to make each of these trips more memorable than the last.

The newest Ford F-150 also takes on rugged terrain with ease, thanks to upgraded off-road tires as well as the FX4 Off-Road option, which includes electronic-locking rear differential, Hill Descent Control, off-road tuned shock absorbers and skid plates.

Safe Enough to Do it All

The best thing about owning this adventurously spirited family vehicle is knowing that it can do anything all while keeping your loved ones as safe as possible. Rated as the only truck to earn the top-tier good rating in every Insurance Institute for Highway Safety category, the family-friendly Ford F-150 comes standard with the latest safety features that allow both you and your family to ride in complete peace of mind. These features include pre-collision assist, active park assist as well as high strength steel to assure the upmost safety in the case of a crash.
