The Ford F-150 is one of the best pickups ever made. It traces its roots back to 1948 and the first F-Series pickup truck. Now in its thirteenth generation, it’s the best it’s ever been, offering practicality, comfort, luxury and performance in one affordable and reliable package.
By simply switching from a steel body structure to an aluminum one, Ford was able to shave a massive 750 pounds off of the previous generation. The styling for the new Ford F-150 is different too, boasting Ford’s new design language and a more aggressive, assertive look.
For the most part, it’s a reliable truck and it’s extremely well built, but like all cars, it’s not completely bulletproof. The 3.5 liter V6 seems to have the most issues followed by the 5.0 liter V8 and the 2.7 liter EcoBoost immediately after. In fairness, none of them exhibit as much problems as most of the rivals’ engines.
The best engine seems to be the 3.0 liter V6 diesel, shared with the PSA Peugeot Citroen Group and Jaguar Land Rover. Mated to a 10-speed transmission, it’s proven to be extremely durable, just like the transmission.
We’ve gathered the most common problems the F-150 platform seems to be experiencing and presented them in this list for your convenience. Bear in mind that the reports were conducted on over 100 customer reviews, all judging the truck in different crucial aspects.
Most of the issues with the Ford F-150 seem to be engine related followed by brake problems and interior accessories. Body and paint problems along with drivetrain issues seem to be relatively low on the list.
