2024 Ford F-150 Gallery
The popular full-size Ford gets new design cues and numerous technology updates.
No matter where you go in the United States, from the vast ranch land of Wyoming to the chaotic streets of New York City, Americans are obviously fond of pickups. Ford quickly points out that the F-150 has long been a favorite with buyers, citing a record 46 years as the country's bestselling truck.
To keep that streak alive, the 2024 Ford F-150 highlights key advancements while staying true to the core elements that made it so successful: capability, versatility, and innovation.
What's New for the 2024 Ford F-150?
While it may not look strikingly different from the outgoing model, the 2024 Ford F-150 has undergone many changes. Beyond the mild styling update, this full-size pickup truck offers a more powerful base engine, an innovative new tailgate design, a standard Sync 4 infotainment system, and other technology features, including a head-up display and a split-screen gauge cluster.
BlueCruise 1.2 is also available, an updated version of Ford's semi-autonomous driving assistance system that now offers lane-change assist and in-lane repositioning. The automaker claims the latter helps keep the F-150 centered in its lane when, for example, wind moves the truck while being passed by a tractor-trailer on the highway.
2024 Ford F-150 Prices and Trim Levels
For 2024, Ford dropped the Limited trim level but will continue to offer XL, STX, XLT, Tremor, Lariat, King Ranch, Platinum, and Raptor variants of the F-150. You'll also have your choice of Regular, SuperCab, and SuperCrew cab styles with short and long bed options, plus rear-wheel drive or four-wheel-drive capability. New standard features include a more powerful base engine, a larger fuel tank, and a Class IV tow hitch. The manufacturer's suggested retail price starts in the upper $30,000s for a base XL model and climbs to the high $70,000s for the 2024 Ford F-150 Raptor.
Many Ways to Access Cargo Thanks to Updated 2024 Ford F-150 Tailgate
One of the key elements of the pickup truck, the tailgate, continues its evolution with the debut of the 2024 F-150. Ford calls it the Pro Access Tailgate, and it features a center access door that opens to a full 100-degree angle, with detents that also keep it in place at 37 and 70 degrees. Ram offers something similar with its multi-function tailgate.
According to Ford, this design provides an extra 19 inches of reach into the rear section of the bed, compared to a traditional tailgate. Users can still lower and raise the entire tailgate in the traditional way.
F-150 Payload Capacity Decreases for 2024
Regarding full-size pickup trucks, bragging rights are worth their weight in gold. Traditionally, the goal has been to deliver more capability than the competition, but Ford deviates from that path with its 2024 F-150.
This year, the maximum payload is 2,455 pounds, compared to 3,315 pounds for the 2023 model. Even with the change, Ford claims the 2024 F-150 still offers best-in-class payload capacity.
2024 Ford F-150 Towing Capacity Is Also Lower Than 2023
The 2024 Ford F-150 can tow up to 13,500 pounds, depending on its configuration. This is 500 fewer pounds compared to the previous year.
Several Engine Options Available on the 2024 Ford F-150
The updated Ford F-150 returns with several available engines, but the base 3.3-liter V6 is gone for 2024. In its place is the EcoBoost turbocharged 2.7-liter V6. Also returning for 2024 are the EcoBoost turbocharged 3.5-liter V6, PowerBoost hybrid 3.5-liter V6, 5.0-liter V8, High Output EcoBoost turbocharged 3.5-liter V6, and the supercharged 5.2-liter V8 engine reserved exclusively for the F-150 Raptor R.
Ford Banks on the F-150 Hybrid Becoming a Hit
Ford claims the F-150 PowerBoost was the bestselling hybrid pickup through the first half of 2023 and is making moves to keep that momentum rolling. For 2024, the price of the PowerBoost hybrid V6 engine option will match that of the 3.5-liter EcoBoost turbocharged V6, which makes this fuel-saving technology more affordable for truck buyers. With that, Ford expects the PowerBoost to comprise 20 percent of total sales volume, up from 10 percent for the 2023 model.
Ford Releases Limited-Edition Run of F-150 Lightning
The F-150 Lightning electric pickup truck returns for 2024 with a new Platinum Black edition. Priced from the high $90,000s and limited to 2,000 units, this version of the Lightning features matte-black paint and 22-inch alloy wheels, a gloss-black roof, black exterior accents, and a smoked front light panel.
Raptor Suspension Upgraded With Fox Shocks
For the wild off-road F-150 Raptor model, Ford upgraded the truck with available Fox Live Valve shocks. Part of an electronic suspension system that responds to inputs hundreds of times per second, these components provide improved compression and rebound control to deliver more responsive ride and handling characteristics on paved roads — or where there's no road at all.
2024 Ford F-150 styling
Visually, the 2024 Ford F-150 has not undergone any drastic changes. Most notable is a redesigned grille and standard LED headlights on all models.
Other updates include restyled wheels, new interior materials and trim colors, and trim-dependent upgrades such as a modular front bumper for the F-150 Tremor and Raptor.
