For 2013, MyFord Touch is optional for the first time on the F-150, complete with an 8-inch color touch screen and a media hub with USB ports, SD card reader, and audio/video input jacks.

Under the Hood
Four different engines are offered in the 2013 F-150. A 3.7-liter V-6 engine creates 302 horsepower at 6,500 rpm and 278 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,000 rpm. It can tow up to 6,100 pounds.

A turbocharged, 3.5-liter V-6 engine, dubbed \"EcoBoost,\" generates 365 horsepower at 5,000 rpm and 420 lb.-ft. of torque at 2,400 rpm. Ford says 90% of peak torque is available between 1,700 and 5,000 rpm, and that EcoBoost models can tow up to 11,300 pounds.

An available 5.0-liter V-8 engine generates 360 horsepower at 5,500 rpm and 380 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,250 rpm. This engine can tow up to 10,000 pounds.

The stronger 6.2-liter V-8 engine delivers 411 horsepower at 5,500 rpm and 434 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,500 rpm, giving the F-150 the ability to tow 11,300 pounds.

When properly equipped, maximum payload capacity ranges from 2,620 pounds for SuperCrew models to 3,120 pounds for regular cab models.
