How Does the 2014 Ford F-150 Match Up Against Its Competitors?
If you are looking for a pickup truck near Boulder, the 2014 Ford F-150 Supercrew is one model that has been getting some attention recently. This year’s F-150 Supercrew has a standard 5.0L V8 engine, and is also outfitted with the following standard and available features:
- Air conditioning
- Dual-zone automatic climate control
- Power moonroof
Unfortunately for Ford, these accommodations simply cannot compete with the efficiency, affordability, technology, and capability offered by the 2014 Honda Ridgeline.
For starters, the new Honda Ridgeline is able to drive longer for less thanks to its high fuel economy, as it achieves an estimated 15 mpg in the city and 21 mpg on the highway from its standard 3.5L V6 engine.* The 2014 Ford F-150 Supercrew gets an inferior 14 mpg in the city and 19 mpg on the highway from its standard 5.0L V8 engine.
For optimum handling when navigating uneven or rough terrain, the new Honda Ridgeline uses its standard limited-slip differential and rear-locking differential to maintain complete control of the vehicle. These two features are costly extras for the new Ford F-150.
