Let’s look now through some characteristics of those top-selling cars in the United States
The full-size Ford F-150 pickup truck is a truly iconic vehicle in America, where it has been an absolute bestseller on the market for over 30 years.
The exterior of the new Ford F-150 is quite distinctive, easily recognizable, and original. It is based on the Atlas concept car shown a year ago, from which the novelty got an impressive part of the exterior trim elements.
The thirteenth generation Ford F-150 has become noticeably more brutal, more serious, more massive, and more aggressive than its predecessor. At the same time, the body contours are well thought out, all elements logically complement each other, and the original lighting technology and a stylish radiator grille give the new pickup a special zest. Not without technical innovations that previously bypassed the Ford F-150.
The radiator grille is now equipped with an advanced aerodynamic louver system that closes at high speed to reduce resistance to oncoming air currents and thereby reduce fuel consumption. Well, in the rear part of the body there was a technological board, which facilitates the loading of goods, a new generation towing hitch, as well as loading ramps integrated into the body structure.
The American full-size pickup is available in three cab options: single “Regular Cab”, one-and-a-half “SuperCab” and double “SuperCrew”. Depending on the modification, the length of the car varies from 5316 to 5890 mm, and the wheelbase is 3109 or 3683 mm. Its width and height are 2030 mm and 1917 mm, respectively, and the ground clearance does not exceed 224 mm.
Inside the thirteenth generation, Ford F-150 has changed no less than the exterior of the pickup. In addition to new finishing materials, it “flaunts” a redesigned front panel with a huge display on the dashboard, futuristic contours, and advanced ergonomics, guaranteeing ease of control even for a beginner who has bought such a powerful pickup for the first time.
The interior is made in the spirit of the exterior of the pickup, continuing its massive contours with an abundance of edges, thereby further emphasizing the serious attitude and harsh nature of the novelty.
The salon of the “truck” in the front part is equipped with comfortable seats with a “relaxed” profile and large ranges for adjustments. But the type of cab directly affects the organization of the rear seats: they either do not exist at all, or they are represented by a two-seater “bench” in the version of “SuperCab” or a full-fledged sofa in the “SuperCrew”.
Specifications. For the Ford F-150 of the thirteenth incarnation, four gasoline engines and exclusively automatic transmissions are provided (each of them is assigned rear-wheel drive as standard, and optionally – an automatically connected four-wheel drive with a two-stage “transfer case”).
The basic version is an atmospheric 3.5-liter “six” Cyclone with a V-shaped layout, 24-valve timing, and direct injection, developing 287 horsepower at 6250 rpm and 346 Nm of peak torque at 4250 rpm and combined with a 6-speed “Automatic”.

With it, in tandem, automatic transmission with six ranges is installed. Further down the hierarchy is the 5.0-liter Coyote V8 engine with direct gasoline into the combustion chamber, phase shifters at the inlet and outlet, and 16-valve timing, producing 385 “mares” at 5750 pm and 525 Nm of available potential at 3850 pm.
The gearbox is assigned to him the same as the previous motors. The top of the power palette is “occupied” by a V-shaped six-cylinder EcoBoost 3.5-liter unit with two turbochargers, combined power supply (“duet” of distributed and direct injection) and a start/stop system, which has 380 “horses” and 637 Nm of rotating power in its bins. moment.
The power flow is transmitted to the wheels using of a 10-speed “automatic” (the last three gears are overdrive ones). The thirteenth generation Ford F-150 pickup is based on a ladder-type frame (with eight welded cross members), which is 78% high-strength steel, and its body is made entirely of aluminum.
The front suspension of the car rests on A-arms, and at the rear, a dependent structure is suspended on springs. By default, the full-size truck is equipped with a rack and pinion steering gear and electric power steering. For braking on the “American” are ventilated discs on all wheels, complemented by a set of modern electronics.
The new Chevrolet Silverado HD pickups are real giants. The Chevrolet Silverado HD has a minimum overall length of 5982mm with a single row Regular Cab and a standard load bed, while the maximum length of the Chevrolet Silverado HD with Crew Cab and an extended load bed is 6756mm.
