2011 Ford F-150 Lariat SuperCab 4x4 (photos)
Ford's F-150 retains work utility with its body-on-frame construction, payload capability, and four-wheel drive, but enters the 21st century with a new, efficient engine that's every bit as powerful as the older V-8.
Ford has been building its F-series pickup trucks since 1948, with the first F-150 model coming out in 1973. That is a long history for any vehicle model, and has allowed the F-150 to gain a loyal following. For the 2011 model, Ford did not sacrifice any of the truck's capability, but added modern convenience features.
The most intriguing modern feature of this F-150 is the EcoBoost engine, a turbocharged direct-injection V-6, which produces more power than a 5-liter V-8 while getting slightly better fuel economy. This engine's power figures are 365 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque.
