Vehicle Overview

The 2013 Ford F-Series pickup truck continues to be America's number one choice for the segment, thanks to its many options for any situation. Base models are powered by a 3.7-liter V-6 engine, the Ford F-Series delivers 17/23 mpg highway and 302 horsepower. Whether used as a work truck, an off-roader, or even an urban fashion statement, there is a Ford F-Series available.

The F-Series comes in ten different models: the XL, STX, XLT, FX2, FX4, Lariat, King Ranch, Raptor, Platinum, and the new Limited. Customers have the option to upgrade the standard engine for a 5.0-liter V-8, turbocharged 3.5-liter V-6, or the 6.2-liter V-8 that comes standard on the Raptor. The F-Series has the capacity to tow loads ranging from 6,400 to 11,300 pounds. The pickup offers great legroom in the back seat, spacious cargo room, but the clamshell doors may be more of challenging than front-hinged doors. The 2013 Ford F-Series gains new audio controls, as well as the available MyFord Touch infotainment system.

Standard features on the base XL model include air conditioning, tilt-only steering wheel, vinyl upholstery, and an AM/FM radio. Stepping up to the STX model offers alloy wheels, body-colored exterior trim, rear power windows on the SuperCab, cruise control, cloth upholstery, CD player, and auxiliary jack. The XTL furthers the standard features with automatic headlights, foglights, chrome exterior trim, keyless entry keypad, Bluetooth, and Sync voice-activation. The FX models bring a trailer tow package, auto-dimming rearview mirror, leather-wrapped and telescoping steering wheel with additional controls, trip computer with color display, and satellite radio. Furthering the list of features, the Lariat model adds leather upholstery, MyFord Touch infotainment system, power-adjustable pedals, heated front seats, power-sliding rear window, and excludes the FX's off-road equipment. The King Ranch adds rear parking sensors, integrated trailer brake controller, ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, rearview camera, remote ignition, wood interior trim, and a Sony sound system. The Platinum brings with it xenon headlights, power-deployable running boards, automatic wipers, a sunroof, and navigation. The Raptor adds full off-road capabilities with all-terrain tires, exterior treatments, aluminum running boards, shift-on-the-fly transfer case, high-performance suspension components, and a unique exterior trim and upholstery.

New for 2013

The 2013 Ford F-Series sees most of its changes on the higher-end models, with the edition of a new Limited model, standard hill-descent control on the FX4, and new options including power telescoping and folding trailer-tow sideview mirrors.
