The Ford F-150 full-size pickup is by far the best truck available; bar none. From its initial introduction over seven decades ago, it has quietly evolved from little more than a workhorse to a very refined vehicle that can be found in the parking lot of a fine dining facility or on a typical work site.

The current generation:

The 13th generation of the Ford F-150 was released in 2015. This is the year the all-new aluminum body was introduced along with new styling inside and out and new engines including an all-new 3.5 L V6 and a smaller 2.7 L V6 Ecoboost. It would not be a Ford F-150 without a V8, the 5.0 L V8 has been carried over.

In 2017, the Ford F-150 in Barrington saw the introduction of a powerful 3.5 L V6 Ecoboost and a 10-speed automatic transmission.

From the outside the F-150 does not confuse anyone, it is a truck. It is big inside as well, with a wide center consul and remarkably comfortable which makes it an ideal choice for long-haul runs. In the higher trims it is still a truck but a luxurious truck, one that will rival many luxury sedans.

All the models are quiet, they are fitted with an 8-inch touchscreen and the SuperCrew configuration seats four big guys comfortably. The rear seat in the SuperCrew folds out of the way for a lot more in-cab storage.


Ford never goes light on safety; a Ford F-150 in Barrington is the only truck to be given the coveted “Top Safety Pick” by the IIHS and five stars from the NHTSA. The higher trims are complete with blind-spot monitors and a surround-view camera set-up. Regardless of the trim, every Ford F-150 gets a full set of airbags and stability control.

There are literally tens of thousands of possible configurations; there is one to suit every buyer and every budget.

If you are in the market for a full size pickup then you will be impressed with the Ford F-150 in Barrington. To see and test drive an F-150 you are invited to visit Arlington Heights Ford.
