In 2018 alone, more than 155,290 F-Series units were sold in Canada. That's an impressive statistic, but there's an equally remarkable one that tells us that's 28 percent more than GM, 57 percent more than RAM and 2.728 percent more than Nissan. Making changes is how Ford keeps itself at the top of the list.

In fact, when you look at the 2019 F-150, it is the only one now to offer such a comprehensive range of the most advanced powertrains on the market. This translates into greater capacity and class-leading torque. Inside the belly of these behemoths is a lineup of six engines that cover three types of configurations: V6 and V8, either 2.7-liter or 3.5-liter for the V6, a twin-turbocharged and direct-injected EcoBoost engine with 325 horsepower and 375 horsepower, respectively, as well as 425 lb-ft and 470 lb-ft of torque (the force of the engine's rotational motion). The 5.0-liter V8 engine is rated at 385 horsepower and 397 lb-ft of torque. The F-150 can also be equipped with a V6 turbo diesel Power Stroke engine. Finally, Ford's popular Raptor can count on a 3.5-liter V6 engine with 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque for the long haul and demanding off-road terrain. It also has an upgraded suspension with FOX continuously variable compression damping shocks.

While the F-150 is powerful, it has plenty of towing capacity as well. You'll be happy to use it for big jobs on the construction site or on weekend adventures. What's more, the F150 has more towing capacity than any other truck in its class. With its innovative Pro Trailer Back Assist® system, it allows the truck and trailer to be synchronized when backing up. The dynamic trailer hitch assist with line of sight allows the hitch ball to be directed to the trailer hitch. The intelligent trailer connector alerts us when there are problems with lighting and connectivity to the trailer.

All this, not to mention an 8-inch screen that displays a variety of information about the trailer. Suffice it to say that the F-150 will make your life easier with your trailer. We can't overlook the trailer brake control that synchronizes the truck and trailer brakes for you, as well as the Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) that alerts you when a vehicle is in your blind spot or next to your trailer. That's why we often say the F-150 is so popular, so smart and so capable.

Speaking of capacity, this truck can tow up to 13,200 pounds (5,988 kg) in the V6 EcoBoost version discussed above. In conclusion, Ford's ingenuity is not only intelligence, but also a desire to reduce the vehicle's weight to increase its payload. To that end, the American manufacturer used a military-grade aluminum alloy that is both light and incredibly strong.

Of course, we can't ignore the storage space available in the F-150's cabin. If you look closely, you'll see that there are plenty of places to store all the things you want to carry, and that's in a single cab. In the Ford F-150 Crew Cab (Crew Cab 4x4), there's also a fully flat floor that allows for even more storage, whether the rear seats are upright or not. Useful running boards provide added safety when getting in and out of the vehicle.

Inside the truck, we're not just talking about storage, but a number of very functional amenities as well. There's a wealth of useful information that can appear on your customizable 8-inch touchscreen with its four menu options. There's an optional 360-degree rearview camera with split-view screen. It also comes with multi-functional adaptive cruise control. FordPass allows you to remotely start your vehicle and schedule recurring start times. Ford SYNC 3 (Sync Connect), with its Waze app, will make it easy for you to avoid traffic jams and find the most efficient route with the built-in navigation system. And those are just a few of the many examples.

Finally, the F-150 is also a very comfortable truck where the very ergonomic seats adjust to the driver's size. A perfect score for an impeccable and well soundproofed interior. Comfort for both driver and passenger.

All in all, the F-150 for sale in 2019, with its wide range of configurations and engines shows us that this vehicle is simply impressive. This Ford truck has another important asset: its resale value. This one remains quite excellent. The strength of the F-150 is no longer up for discussion, as is its spacious interior and hyper-comfortable seats. In 2019, the truck is even "smarter" with its many advanced technological and safety features.
