There are 4 varieties of the Ford F-150 including XL, XLT, LARIAT, and King Ranch which all seat up to 6 passengers.

These engines range from naturally aspirated V6 and V8 gas powertrains with twin-independent variable cam timing, turbocharged gas EcoBoost® V6 offerings, and the Power Stroke® Turbo Diesel V6 engines.

Up to 10 devices can connect at one time, so no matter how long the trip, everyone will stay entertained and you’ll keep connected to your favorite navigational apps.
