Used 2013 Ford F-150 | Internet Auto Rent and Sales | Boise, ID

Ever wondered what America's top-selling truck is? Is it a Chevy? A GMC? May a Toyota? Nope, nope, and nope. Sure, these automotive car makers have great trucks, but only one can stand on top and it's the Ford F-150. New or used, the F-150 is an incredible choice if you're in the market for a full-size pickup truck that's strong, powerful, high-quality and high-tech. One model that will catch your eye is the F-150's 2013 model year. Read on to learn the many reasons this truck continues to be a leading choice.


Power and Strength for Towing and Utility. Available in regular cab, crew cab, extended cab or crew cab body styles with a 5.5-foot, 6.5-foot or 8-foot cargo bed, the 2013 Ford F-150 is a pickup truck that delivers alluring utility with differing styles and measurements. So what do these body styles and cargo bed lengths mean for you? The answer: a truck that is designed to meet all of your needs. Whether you need a large cargo hold or more cabin than bed space, you can find the F-150 in the exact makeup that suits your demands best. Say, for instance, that you require a truck that can tow and haul pretty hefty cargo loads on a regular basis. The 2013 F-150 is well-equipped to do so.

Not only does the F-150 provide strong durability, but it also delivers the power necessary for such jobs. Under the hood of the 2013 F-150, you'll find either a 3.7-liter V6 (302 hp/278 torque), 3.5-liter V6 (365 hp/420 torque), 5.0-liter V8 (360 hp/380 torque) or 6.2-liter V8 (411 hp/434 torque). As you can tell just in text, each of these engines produce desirable power, the most obviously revved by the 6.2-liter. While each engine has the means to push through rugged situations, what exactly are they capable of in terms of towing? When properly equipped, the 3.7-liter V has a maximum tow rate of 6,400 pounds, while this number explodes to 11,300 pounds with the 6.2-liter V8. Other engines fall somewhere in between.


Fully-Loaded Trims. Power and strength may be top reasons to opt for a truck, but you can't dismiss the next best reason – the content. For 2013, the Ford F-150 showed off a lineup of not three, four or five trims …. not six, seven or eight trims … but nine! Nine fully-loaded, excitement-driven trims. While they may not be “made to order” like they were when fresh on the market, you can still easily find them – and most importantly, you can still easily find the perfect match for you.

When simplicity is what you're after, the F-150's XL trim is definitely for you with its bare-necessities approach. It comes with basics like 17-inch steel wheels, tilt-only steering wheel, vinyl upholstery and AM/FM radio. Many more comfort features can be found in higher rim levels, though, like the XLT, which includes automatic headlights, foglights and keyless entry.

If you want a truck that shines with luxury content, then the F-150's Lariat trim is a prize pick. It features all of the upscale essentials, from dual-zone automatic climate control and leather upholstery to heated front seats and driver memory settings.

For the F-150 trim that roars with off-road prowess, the Raptor is the tiger you're seeking. It comes off-road ready with:

  • 17” wheels

  • All-terrain tires

  • Fixed aluminum running boards

  • High-performance suspension

  • Auxiliary equipment switch panel


An Interior of Comfort and Space. Comfort and space make up the interior of the 2013 Ford F-150 – two qualities alone that make it a winner. Those inside are awarded with abundant legroom, even in the backseat which can often be hard to come by in a truck. Also featured is a flat floor that nicely boosts comfort and space for all inside.

Another great element about the 2013 Ford F-150 is its tech features that increase passenger enjoyment. Depending on trim level, the F-150 comes with content, such as:

  • Trip computer with color display

  • Satellite radio

  • MyFord Touch electronics interface

  • Dual USB ports

  • Rear-seat entertainment system
