Whether you hail from College Station or Bryan these days, it's no secret that Texan drivers love their pickup trucks. And while everyone has different preferences when it comes to trucks, our new Ford F-150 is always high on many of our guests' wish lists. Of course, that's no surprise given that the Ford F-Series has been America's best-selling pickup truck brand for the better part of the last century or so. However, if you haven't been paying attention to the new Ford F-150 for the last few model years, you may just be pleasantly surprised by just how much this light-duty pickup truck brings to the table these days. Check out the top features of the new Ford F-150, and we're confident you'll want to come in to lease one today at Appel Ford in Brenham, TX.

Now, the light-duty pickup truck market is undoubtedly packed full of options these days, but the new Ford F-150 has a distinct edge on many of its rivals that may not be apparent at just a glance. You see, while most new trucks use conventional steel bodies, the new Ford F-150 leverages a high-strength, military-grade aluminum alloy body which is much lighter than conventional steel. The result is a pickup truck that uses less power to simply get moving, allowing it to use more of its available power and torque for hauling and towing. Plus, it doesn't hurt that using aluminum rather than steel renders the new Ford F-150 practically impervious to body rust over time.

And speaking of hauling and towing, we think you'll find that whether you're moving a boat, camper, utility trailer, or even a livestock trailer, the new Ford F-150 is well-equipped to tackle practically any towing task you set out for it. With six distinct engine options, including a stout Turbo Diesel engine and the new Ford PowerBoost hybrid powertrain, the new Ford F-150 is easily one of the most powerful and capable new full-size pickups for sale near College Station these days. In fact, when properly equipped, the new Ford F-150 can confidently tow up to 14,000 pounds or haul payloads of up to 3,325 in its expansive bed.

That said, rugged brawn and capability aren't the only things that set the new Ford F-150 apart from its many rivals. In fact, we'd argue it's one of the smartest and best-equipped new pickup trucks on the market. From a stowable shifter in the cabin that makes way for an interior work surface, the latest version of the Ford SYNC® 4 infotainment system to the smart trailer tow connector and embedded scales in the cargo bed to help you balance heavy loads, the new Ford F-150 deftly integrates smart tech to improve your driving experience and help you take on tougher tasks with ease.
