Since the Model TT in the 1910s, Ford has been putting out trucks that have raised the bar in the automotive industry. The 2024 Ford F-150 is no exception to this exceptional legacy. The F-150 model has been around since 1975, and it has become synonymous with American towing and hauling. In fact, we’d go so far as to say that when your average driver pictures a pickup truck, they imagine a vehicle that looks just like the Ford F-150. This series of trucks has been so successful for so long that it has left an indelible impression on American drivers.
Many Vermont drivers have already enjoyed the benefits of an F-150. If that’s you, you might be looking to upgrade to the newest model. If you’ve never driven such a truck, it might be time for you to consider purchasing one to make your driving life easier and open up the possibilities for adventure. By being able to tow so much, you can bring a camper, ATVs, or even a boat out to your vacation destination, allowing you and your family to form some treasured memories.
Beyond just the towing and payload capability, which are considerable, drivers love how their F-150s help them handle the snow and ice during Vermont’s winters. No one wants to drive in such conditions, but when you don’t have a choice, the F-150 has a lot to offer and will help you get to your destination. We’re going to walk through the specifics of the new 2024 so that Vermont drivers understand why it’s such a smart choice for traversing through this corner of New England.

When purchasing a pickup truck, performance is at the top of most people’s list, as well it should be, in our opinion. Ford has made certain that the 2024 F-150’s towing and payload capabilities are some of the best on the road, which is just one of many reasons we’re so excited to offer this truck to you.
If you’re going down I-89 in your F-150, towing a camper so you can enjoy some of Vermont’s parks and camping grounds, you want to know that you can utilize an engine that will give you not just solid performance but an exceptional one. Fear not: the 2024 Ford F-150 has you covered. In fact, it gives you multiple options for the engine so you can have the exact type of power you wish.
The base engine is an aggressive 2.7L V6 engine that gives you 325 hp; this engine can be upgraded to a 5.0L V8 engine that produces 400 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque. If you want a hybrid option, the F-150 has a great engine for you, too: a 3.5L V6 engine with an electric motor that produces 430 hp and saves you plenty of money for your monthly budget. You’ll love all this horsepower and torque because they give you the ability to take off fast from a standstill, meaning entering the highway, even when towing, will no longer be a stressful task.
The power of these engines also translates into very smooth rides; if you’re towing a heck of a lot, you don’t want to feel like your truck is dragging, and the innovation these engines provide will make it feel like there’s nothing hitched to your truck at all. This is doubly fantastic when road conditions are poor, and you want to have faith your truck can get you where you need to go despite the climate.
The strength of the engines is what allows you to tow up to a best-in-class 14,000 lbs. As a point of comparison, that’s more than double the weight of the F-150 itself. It’ll be mighty hard to find anything that your pickup truck can’t tow. Drivers love this because now they can bring all the comforts of home along with them when they travel with the family and can also tow whatever they need for work, allowing them to maximize productivity.
Payload capacity also comes in at an impressive 3,310 lbs when properly equipped. Your truck bed will not only be able to handle a lot; it’ll be able to keep it safe, too, thanks to tie-downs and a design that encourages stability even when the roads turn rough. It’s also designed to be easy to access with its tailgate, so you don’t have to worry about straining yourself as you place and remove cargo.
The 2024 F-150’s inside stuns as much as its exterior. Instead of being imposing, though, the truck’s interior aims to be luxurious, making sure that both driver and passengers are traveling in comfort and style. Just because the truck does heavy labor doesn’t mean passengers have to be uncomfortable. The days of cramped cabs are long gone. In fact, you’ll be able to choose the size of your interior, with the largest being the SuperCab, which is perfect for anyone who plans to travel with friends or family regularly.
The F-150’s seats are designed to handle difficult driving conditions. Just because the truck might be hitting unpleasant terrain does not mean you need to feel it. The fabric of the seats is durable, so if you’re using your truck for labor, you don’t have to be concerned about scratching the seats when concentrating on a difficult task. These seats can be heated, too, for when our winters unleash those brutally freezing days, it’ll make morning commutes more bearable. Summers, however, can get pretty sticky here, so you can also have your seats ventilated, depending on the trim; this will be a great addition to feel relaxed after a hot day of work.
Because of how powerful the truck is, you might worry that rides will be noisy. The cab of the F-150 makes sure that doesn’t happen. The engines are not particularly loud to begin with, and the design of the interior prevents you and your passengers from hearing much commotion. This way, you’ll be able to enjoy your drives, whether they’re for fun or labor, while your truck does all the work.
The 2024 Ford F-150 comes equipped with truly intelligent technology that will make your travels easier and more enjoyable. With Pro Trailer Backup Assist and Pro Trailer Hitch Assist, trailering has never been simpler, thanks to the guidance you’ll be receiving from your truck via its touchscreen. Even seasoned pickup truck drivers will end up happily using it as it saves time and reduces any stress. Who doesn’t want the benefits of trailering with none of the worries?
Pro Power Onboard might be the most exciting tech attached to the new model of the F-150. There are plugs in the cab and the truck’s bed that can provide an enormous amount of power. If you’re concerned about a winter storm knocking out your electricity, you can worry no more if you own an F-150 because it can power some of your electronics and recharge your devices. It’s great if you’re at a remote work site, too, and need some juice for your project or if you’re just camping in one of Vermont’s state parks and want to know you have some electric backup.
Ford’s BlueCruise technology also comes with the F-150. It’s essentially a co-pilot, capable of changing lanes for you while you drive hands-free. It can operate within a lane, too, with In-Lane Repositioning, which will guide your vehicle away from large vehicles on one side of you.
The truck’s infotainment is easily accessible with an available 12-inch touchscreen that also comes with knobs if you prefer tactile usage (this is great if you have gloves on, for instance). You also have an optional Heads Up Display so you can keep your eyes on the road while still being informed on the details of your trip, whether that’s speed or navigation. With Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, you’ll be able to connect your device to your truck so you can enjoy your tunes and favorite podcasts.
