2016 – 2019 Ford F150 Buyers Guide

Although the pickup truck started life as a workman’s tool, it’s evolved into a vehicle that is as capable hauling tools and supplies on a farm, as it is hauling the family to church on Sunday (we’d highly recommend a roomy used Ford F150 SuperCrew for people-hauling duties). The Ford F-Series has long been the best-selling vehicle in America because there’s literally Ford truck for everyone. A used Ford F150 XL is perfect for businesses and business people that need a reliable way to get things done without breaking the bank. A used Ford F150 XLT SuperCrew makes a great daily driver that can perform chores without a fuss. A used Ford F150 Platinum or used Ford F150 Limited SuperCrew is a luxurious way for the ‘boss’ to handle business throughout the week, then tow their toys around on the weekend. But no matter what you need from your truck, Off Lease Only definitely has a Ford F150 for sale that will fit both your requirements and budget. Now let’s take a look at the different options and equipment that you will find on a used Ford F150.

With a hilarious number of engines and option choices, there are said to be over 1 billion possible ways to build an F150. The 2016 Ford F150 XL for example, has 4,147,200 possible build combinations. That is a staggering number, which means your used Ford F150 could literally be the only one of its kind on the road. But let’s start with the body styles. There are three cabs available; the two door Ford F150 regular cab, the extended cab Ford F150 SuperCab and the 4-door Ford F150 SuperCrew. The bed length depends on which cab is used; the regular and SuperCab can be had with a 6.5 foot or 8 foot bed. The F150 Super Crew model is only available with a 5.5 or 6.5 foot bed. And of course, all of the above are available with 4WD, and multiple engines.
