If you're on the hunt for the perfect pickup truck then look no further than the 2012 Ford F-150. This truck comes with powerful and fuel-efficient engines, an inviting and functional cabin, and such a good range of models and features that it won't be hard to find one that meets all of your requirements. With qualities like these is there any wonder Ford's F-150 series has been the best-selling pickup for several decades? Want to learn more about this truck? Check it out below.


Basic to Upscale Trims

While most vehicles sport a lineup with between three and five trim levels, the 2012 Ford F-150 offers nine. Whether you want a truck that's simple, of-road oriented or lavishly upscale, the F-150 makes finding your ideal truck an easy mission.

For the bare necessities, the F-150's XL and XTS trims are geared toward commercial use and come with zero to minimal fluff. The XL rides on 17” steel wheels, has vinyl seating, AM/FM radio, and not much else. The STX is still rather bare, but does come with full power accessories, cruise control, cloth seating and an upgraded sound system with CD player and auxiliary audio jack.

Luxury is put first in the F-150's Lariat trim, featuring upscale interior elements, leather upholstery, heated and powered front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control and power-adjustable pedals.

If off-road thrills are your thing then the F-150's SVT Raptor trim is the beast you're looking for. It was built with an off-road-oriented design and is equipped with rugged essentials, such as:

  • Special tires

  • Heavily-revised suspension

  • Electronically locking rear differential

On-road or off, the 2012 Ford F-150 has the ability to keep you and your passengers protected with its durability and solid safety equipment. All models of the 2012 F-150 come with:

  • Four-wheel antilock disc brakesTractionStability control

Powerful and Efficient Engine Lineup

Depending on trim level, the 2012 Ford F-150 will come with one of four engines – each is paired to a six-speed automatic transmission and two- or four-wheel drive. Here's a look at each:

  • 3.7-liter V6: 302 hp / 287 lb.-ft. of torque

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

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

As you can see, it doesn't matter which engine the F-150 houses because they are all powerful and efficient. For speed, however, you'll definitely like the twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6, which goes from zero to 60 mph in just 6.5 seconds.

If you are in need of a truck that is capable of towing strong loads, the 2012 -150 doesn't disappoint. When properly equipped, it can tow 6,100 ponds with the 3.7-liter V6 all the way up to 11,300 pounds with the 6.2-liter and turbo V6.
