The truck’s standard payload capacity is 1,500 pounds, which is enough for hauling mulch for a landscaping project or equipment for working in the fields. Plus, the truck bed has tie downs, outlets, and anchor points that make keeping everything organized a breeze.

Hitching your trailer to your truck usually involves a lot of guesswork that can result in dangerous driving if not done properly.
Ford aims to solve that problem with Smart Hitch, a tool accessible through your F-150’s touch screen that calculates your trailer’s tongue weight to help you best distribute weight in the trailer safely and evenly.
You’ll never have to painstakingly weigh out payload or play a dangerous guessing game when transporting lumber again with to Ford’s new Onboard Scales.
The system automatically weighs your cargo and displays a percentage bar on a built-in LED bar in your truck’s bed to communicate safe weight distribution. You can also use your truck as a scale by zeroing out the current weight and getting an estimate of the items you place in the bed.
Ford F-150 trailering tech like Smart Hitch and Onboard Scales are available through L&L Motor, so call us to order your new F-150 truck today.
The Ford F-150 was named Truck of the Year, while the new Mustang Mach-E was named Utility of the Year, once more highlighting the exceptional quality and performance of these Ford models.
It’s hard enough to win a single NACTOY award, let alone two. The last time an automaker managed to win multiple awards in the same year was 2014, but there was no real doubt that Ford would manage the feat in 2021.
Ford F-150 and Mach-E Awards
After all, the Ford F-150 and Mustang Mach-E are no strangers to earning awards together. They were also named the Top Rated Truck and Top Rated Luxury EV of 2021 by Edmunds, and the 2021 Green Truck of the Year and Green Car of the Year by Green Car Journal.
That’s on top of a number of other individual awards amassed by the two Ford vehicles. In January alone, the F-150 was named the winner of Kelley Blue Book’s Best Buy Award while the Mustang Mach-E was named the Best Car to Buy 2021 by The Car Connection and Green Car Reports.

Are you considering a lift for your Ford pickup? It’s a big decision, and the L&L Motors team is here to help you decide the pros and cons of lifting your Ranger, F-150, or Super Duty truck if you live near Roosevelt, Utah.
First, think about why you want to get your truck lifted. Do you just want to make it look good and stand out on the road? A lift will definitely achieve that for you, and it will give you better visibility as well due to your raised ride height.
If you like to travel off-road or need to conquer snowy conditions and dirt roads, a lift will greatly improve ground clearance. Here in the Uintah Basin, great off-roading destinations are just a few hours away. With a lift, you’ll have even more fun tackling the terrain in the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest, Ashley National Forest, and the area around Dinosaur National Monument.
Drawbacks To Consider
Lifting your truck does come with some drawbacks, and it’s important to be aware of these. A lift will raise your truck’s center of gravity, making it a bit harder to maneuver. Plus, that lowers fuel economy — especially if you’re just driving on normal roads and highways.
You Have Options!
If you do decide to get your truck lifted, you’ll have a couple of different options. A suspension lift requires a lot of specialized changes and new components, while a body lift is more straightforward and less complicated.
Whatever you end up doing with your truck, the service department at L&L Motors is ready to provide the expertise you need. Give us a call or see us at our location in Roosevelt, Utah.
Every year, Green Car Journal bestows awards to what it considers the most eco-friendly car and truck of the year. For 2021, the all-new 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E was named the Green Car of the Year, while the 2021 Ford F-150 received the award for Green Truck of the Year. Both are models you can order from L&L Motor in Roosevelt, Utah.
The Mustang Mach-E beat out the competition thanks to its sharp, modern styling and high performance. Its driving capability is matched by its noteworthy efficiency. Some versions have a targeted 0-60 mph time of just 3.5 seconds, while also offering an estimated 300 miles of electric driving range.
As for the F-150, it most impressed the judges with its newly available, class-exclusive 3.5-liter PowerBoost Full Hybrid V6. This gas-electric powertrain will deliver a maximum towing capacity of 12,700 pounds, achieve exceptional performance ratings, and is expected to offer more than 700 miles of driving range.
“The 2021 F-150’s redesign keeps things fresh,” stated Green Car Journal’s representative in the announcement. “The addition of a full hybrid engine option is an important differentiator, as is this pickup’s available Pro Power Onboard output system with 120- and 240-volt outlets for tradesmen and construction sites.”

Ford will soon offer hands-free driving technology on the 2021 Ford F-150. The top-of-the-line Limited trim will sport Active Drive Assist as a standard element of the Ford Co-Pilot360™, the automaker’s suite of advanced safety and driver assist features. Though, you can also get Active Drive Assist as an available add-on if you go with a Lariat, King Ranch, or Platinum trim.
Active Drive Assist
Active Drive Assist will enable you to remove your hands from the steering wheel while on the highway. The system uses camera and radar technologies to keep the 2021 F-150 squarely in the center of the lane while traveling at a driver-selected speed.
Active Drive Assist has already been announced as part of the all-new electric Mustang Mach-E. Ford mapped more than 100,000 miles of American highways when fine-tuning the new technology.
Granted, drivers are still required to keep their eyes on the road at all times. A driver-facing camera will monitor your head position and eye movement to ensure that you are staying awake and alert behind the wheel.
Active Drive Assist is available for a 3-year service period with automatic updates to keep the technology current. After this period, updates will come only if you continue the subscription by paying a monthly service cost.
