If Kentucky had an official full-size pickup, the Ford F-150 would be it. With its rugged prowess and modern muscle, the F-150 is a familiar fixture around these parts. In addition to its workday capabilities, this truck is known for its Sunday Funday trailblazing - especially the off-road-ready F-150 Raptor. And you can even pair your outdoor adventure with high-end style, because Ford offers luxury features that make you feel like the king of the road. Read on to find out more about how the F-150 fits into your Kentucky lifestyle.
Regional Kentucky and the F-150
Kentucky's native forests, mountains, and rugged wilderness make it an off-roader's paradise. And, in a four-wheel-drive Ford F-150, that paradise becomes more accessible than ever. Tour specialty parks like the Black Mountain adventure area, with its 150 miles of off-road trails, or simply strike out on your own for a family adventure you won't soon forget. If you want to maximize your off-road capabilities, check out the specialty F-150 Raptor. It comes standard with everything you need to hop boulders and muck through the mud, including skid plates and flared fenders. Its special four-wheel-drive system means extra precision as you make your way through dangerous Kentucky mountainsides.
A Family-Friendly Ride
Of course, not every weekend has to be about the Kentucky wilderness. Pile the whole family into the F-150's spacious crew cab and head out to backyard barbeques and baseball games in style. Both rows are spacious, so even backseat passengers can travel from one side of the state to the other without ever clashing elbows. You can even outfit your F-150 with luxury features, like supple leather upholstery, for an upscale experience. On a hot summer day, ventilated seats will cool you down in a snap. And, when the Kentucky winter wanders in, heated seats - available in both rows - keep everyone cozy.
The Ford F-150 is built to move through mountains, but it's also designed to tackle heavy workloads. When you need to tow and haul heavy loads, there's no better companion. Choose from four rugged engines for the towing and hauling capabilities you require. If you want to tow a heavy family camper, test-drive the line's strongest engine, the turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 - it generates 375 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque. Properly equipped, an F-150 with this engine can tow 12,200 pounds.
As you make your way into the Kentucky wild, you and your family members can count on Ford's modern safety features to get you there and back again. Driver aids, like blind-spot monitoring, alert you to dangers you might otherwise miss. The forward collision warning system even pre-charges the brakes, helping you come to a quick stop. In government crash tests, the F-150 earned a perfect five-star rating for overall protection, giving you extra peace of mind.
