The Ford F-150, in particular, has established itself as a favorite of American drivers. Filled to the brim the with options suited to drivers of all sorts, it's a high-performance go-to for people in need of a top quality truck.

The best part? You don't even need a new F-150 to get a great experience. Built to last, many older and recent year Ford trucks provide a level of performance and ability that's on par with what you'll find in something brand new. If you need a great truck that doesn't break the bank, you'll find a wealth of used options waiting at Tony Betten Ford.

Take a look at some of the options you might find when you visit our location in Grand Rapid, MI.

The Current F-150 Generation: 2015 to Present

Boasting impressive improvements over its predecessors, the most recent generation of F-150 trucks offers everything from powerful engines to valuable active safety systems aimed at helping you avoid accidents before they happen. The most recent F-150s also make use of an aluminum chassis that drops nearly 700-pounds of weight while maintaining the high level of versatility and durability the line is known for.

For many truck drivers, however, what's under the hood is what matters the most. In that regard, the current generation of F-150s doesn't disappoint. While performance obviously varies depending on the specific specs of each year's trucks, this generation delivers an array of engine options that include a powerful V6 turbocharged EcoBoost, among others. Several of the current F-150 models are powerful off-roaders, with others delivering some of the best towing and hauling figures on the modern market.

The 12th F-150 Generation: 2009 to 2014

If you decide to dip into F-150s that are a little bit older, you might not enjoy all of the same features more recent models can offer. What you can still expect, however, is a dedication to delivering the same muscle and performance that's always served as the foundation of the F-150 lineup.

That's not to say you won't enjoy any modern amenities, of course. The 12th generation introduced the Uconnect infotainment system. Many of the models under its umbrella also offer attractive style and a number of features that F-150s use today. If you don't mind a bit age, a 12th generation F-150 could be a big source of savings and value.


Older F-150 Generations

While older vehicles can obviously come with more wear-and-tear than ones made in the past few years, there can still be some genuine benefits to buying an F-150 made before 2009. While some older models weren't as concerned with style and comfort, many of them were still top-models when it came to performance. You could easily find an older F-150 that delivers performance figures that are in line with the best of what the lineup has to offer today. It likewise goes without saying that older F-150s will cost you significantly less than newer ones. While you should always make sure the vehicle you're buying has been well-maintained (not a concern at Tony Betten Ford), an older used F-150 could provide you with the performance you need and save you a lot of money at the same time.
