A top reason to opt for a used vehicle is the many options that come with it. But when it's a used truck, the choices are truly impressive. This is especially true with the 2012 Ford F-150. With an abundant number of trims, impressive and useful features, and key strengths like power and fuel efficiency, the 2012 F-150 is a winning choice for a pickup truck.


Perks of 2012

2012 brought a hefty amount of changes to Ford's F-150 – a model year that not only impressed consumers of past, but also those of present. Some of the changes awarded to the 2012 Ford F-150, include:

  • Standard 36-gallon fuel tank on four-wheel-drive models with turbocharged V6 engine

  • New two-speed automatic transfer case for upper trim levels

  • Electronic locking rear axle

  • Neutral tow capability that allows for a flat-tow

  • Upgraded Sync system with expanded capabilities for smartphones


A Variety of Trim Levels, Body Styles and Bed Lengths

A great thing about the 2012 Ford F-150 is that it comes with a variety of trim levels, body styles and bed lengths, which makes finding the perfect truck easy. Here are a few stats worth knowing:

  • Bed Lengths: 5.5-foot, 6.5-foot and 8-foot.

  • Body Styles: regular cab, extended cab (SuperCab) and crew cab (SuperCrew)

  • Trim Levels: XL, STX, XLT, FX2/FX4, Lariat, King Ranch, Platinum, Harley Davidson and SVT Raptor

Depending on what qualities consumers want most in their F-150 will decide which trim level is for them. For a rugged experience, the FX2/FX4 trim is the ultimate choice, featuring equipment, such as:

  • 18” wheels

  • Towing package

  • Underbody skid plates

  • Retuned springs/shock absorbers

When luxury is a key element consumers seeks, the F-150's Lariat trim satisfies their needs. It comes with upscale items, like:

  • Leather upholstery

  • Power-adjust pedals

  • Power-sliding rear window

  • Heated, 8-way power front seats

  • Dual-zone automatic climate control

For extreme off-road capabilities and more, there's no better choice than the F-150's Raptor trim. It comes with a range of sought-after content, including:

  • Special tires

  • Heavily-revised off-road suspension

  • Sport seats

  • Electronically locking rear differential

  • Exclusive exterior and interior styling


Excellent Space

The interior of the 2012 F-150 provides consumers with one very important thing: space. This is true for both passengers and cargo. Consumers are especially happy with the backseat, which strives for comfort – and succeeds. Legroom is abundant, the floor is flat for good comfort and easier loading and unloading of cargo, and seat-backs are nicely angled for great comfort.


Solid Power and Tow Rates

One of four different engines can be found under the hood of the 2012 Ford F-150. Which engine powers the F-150 depends on the trim level consumers gets. Here's a look at each:

  • 3.7-liter V6: 302 hp/278 lb.-ft. torque

  • 5.0-liter V8: 360 hp/380 lb.-ft. torque

  • 3.5-liter V6: 365 hp/420 lb.-ft. torque

  • 6.2-liter V8: 411 hp/434 lb.-ft. torque

From the stats above, it's obvious that all engines available to the 2012 F-150 are plenty powerful. But how strong are they? The F-150's tow rates range from 6,100 pounds with the 3.7-liter V6 to 11,300 pounds with the 6.2-liter V8 and turbocharged V6.
