Vehicles are getting more and more expensive these days and buying one can actually be a mind-boggling decision. You may want a good-looking, luxury coupe but that can only seat 2 people and nothing more.

2. Ford F-150
Ford has made refreshments to the predecessor of the F-150 model just last year. They added a whole new transmission system as well as a few additional engine options. Now, they’ve really come up with one of their toughest pickup truck yet.
Even though they’ve packed up on powerful performance upgrades, they managed to weigh the engine quality with comfort to maximize product effectiveness for their clients. Take a look at the other features that the all-new Ford F-150 boasts:
- The standard engine that comes with the newest 2020 Ford F-150 is a 3.3Liter Ti-VCT Vg that can generate around two-hundred ninety horsepower. It can also produce a roaring 265 lb-ft of torque.
- Clients do have the option to choose among three expensive EcoBoost engines; a 2.7Liter EcoBoost V6 that can produce 325 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque, a 3.5Liter EcoBoost capable of 375 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque, a High Output 3.5Liter Ecoboost V6 that can generate 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque and lastly there’s the 5.0Liter Ti-VCT V8 with 395 horsepower 470 lb-ft for its torque capacity. Rule of thumb here is that the more horsepower and torque the engine can produce, the higher its price is.
- It can tow as much as a whopping 13,200 pounds easily with the standard engine option.
- The model has a spacious cabin with great legroom - adjustable to comfortably sit a driver of any height taller than 5”.
- The massive pickup has an equally large gas tank with a capacity of 23 gallons.
- It comes with a full-sized spare wheel which is way better than most other vehicles that only come with a compact spare tire.
