The Ford F-150 is a full-size pickup truck made by Ford that first appears in Asphalt 8: Airborne. It was added to the game in the Great Wall update.

Asphalt 8: Airborne

Summary

The Ford F-150 is a nitro-based low-end Class D pickup truck. It was added to the game in The Great Wall Update with the following rank statistics:

Performance

The F-150 has unusual statistics. At first, it appears to be very weak, with the lowest raw top speed in the entire game, one of the worst handling statistics in the entire game, and a mediocre displayed acceleration statistic. On the other hand, these are all outweighed by a very large nitro statistic; in fact, the largest of any vehicle in the entire game (except the unobtainable Despicable Me "Villain Wheels"), and also the largest of any vehicle relative to the vehicle's raw top speed.

In fact, the F-150 is much better than what it appears to be. There are some key features of the F-150 that can make it very powerful in Multiplayer and when fighting vehicles of a similar MAX + PRO rank. The biggest advantage of the F-150 is an unusually high total top speed. Because of its large nitro, the F-150 has extra total top speed when compared to other vehicles. For example, compared to the Scion FR-S, with both vehicles MAX + PRO (1071 vs 1091), the F-150 is 8 mph (12.9 km/h) faster without a Tuning Kit and 8.8 mph (14.1 km/h) faster with a Tuning Kit.

This extra speed is partially offset by having a very low speed without nitro and only a mediocre nitro efficiency of 9/13/17, though the F-150 can also compensate for these downsides with the use of frequent ramp-jumps and Extra Tanks (as well as Nitro Starters and Tuning Kits). The F-150, however, is at a considerable disadvantage on rampless maps such as Azure Coast.

Due to the F-150's unusual statistics, much of its real performance is misrepresented by numbers. Despite having a bad handling statistic, the F-150 has outstanding drifting and handling while nitro isn't activated, due to the fact that its top speed is so low without nitro. Also, the F-150's handling while under nitro isn't as bad either, due to it being only a Class D vehicle and not extremely fast; its handling while under nitro is comparable to vehicles like the Lamborghini Veneno of Class S, which has a handling statistic above 1.300 Gs.

The F-150 also has fairly high acceleration, similar to that of the Renault DeZir, due to the large nitro which it possesses; nitro contributes hugely to acceleration.

Usage (Multiplayer)

In Multiplayer, the F-150 is the fastest vehicle in the game from around ranks 550-800. At 500, most vehicles are the same speed but at 550-800, the F-150 does gain a considerable amount of speed over its competition. The biggest threat to the F-150 would be the DeZir, which is slower but which also possesses a more efficient nitro. The F-150 can beat the DeZir in most maps, but an Extra Tank is necessary, instead of just a double-boost. Azure Coast is one map where the F-150 cannot properly hold its ground.

Although the DeZir is quite fast already, the F-150 (in Multiplayer) has a higher total top speed at the same rank as the DeZir (until the maximum speed upgrades, since the DeZir can be extended further). The reason for this is that both have very large nitro statistics, but the F-150's is larger. In fact, the difference would not be so large in Multiplayer if the F-150 didn't have another advantage over the DeZir; nitro rank weighting. The DeZir, despite having a slightly smaller nitro than the F-150, gains 35% of its total rank increase from just nitro, instead of the 25% that the F-150 gains.

Overall, the F-150 can be described as a tied "King" of Multiplayer (with the DeZir), because it has a higher total top speed at ranks below 800 than any other vehicle in the game. At those ranks, very few vehicles can compete in the first place, however. Still, there are many Pro and Champion League players who use the DeZir to "farm" Multiplayer Points because it is very easy to come first/second in every race at such low levels. Some "underdog" vehicles at these ranks, which are slightly worse than both the DeZir and F-150, are the Camaro Z/28, Volkswagen Beetle Turbo, and SUBARU IMPREZA WRX STI.

Some optimal Multiplayer tunes for the F-150:

(Note: None of these have been tested; these are all theoretical ranks/speed values based on calculations made using the statistics and weightings of the vehicle. Therefore, speed values or ranks could be off by as much as 0.5 or 3, respectively. Measurements were also made in km/h initially and converted to mph later, so there may also be small errors because of that.)

  • 0004 0303, @628
    • Total top speed = 178.8 mph or 287.8 km/h
    • Raw top speed = 107.1 mph or 172.4 km/h
    • DeZir equivalent: 0003 0000, @615 --> Speed = RTS 114.5 mph or 184.2 km/h + N 57.5 mph or 92.6 km/h = TTS 172 mph or 276.8 km/h
    • F-150 = 13 ranks higher with -7.4 mph RTS and +6.8 mph TTS (-11.8 km/h RTS and +11 km/h TTS).
    • F-150 vs DeZir performance evaluation: "The F-150 has lower speed without nitro and a shorter-lasting nitro compared to the DeZir. Because the vehicles are so slow, they are very reliant on nitro at these ranks. The F-150 partially makes up for a lack of nitro with a huge total speed boost; Extra Tanks are mandatory in order to beat the DeZir. With an Extra Tank, victory is nearly guaranteed in the F-150, though DeZirs of higher rank can be mismatched into games."
  • 0005 0303, @661
    • Total top speed = 182.7 mph or 294.1 km/h
    • Raw top speed = 107.1 mph or 172.4 km/h
    • DeZir equivalent: 0004 0000, @671 --> Speed = RTS 114.5 mph or 184.2 km/h + N 63.9 mph or 102.9 km/h = TTS 178.4 mph or 287.1 km/h
    • F-150 = 10 ranks lower with -7.4 mph RTS and +4.3 mph TTS (-11.8 km/h RTS and +7 km/h TTS).
    • F-150 vs DeZir performance evaluation: "The F-150's performance gap with the DeZir has become smaller. This means Extra Tanks are definitely still necessary. The F-150 will generally still be at an advantage over the DeZir."
  • 0305 0303, @768
    • Total top speed = 191.2 mph or 307.8 km/h
    • Raw top speed = 115.6 mph or 186.1 km/h
    • DeZir equivalent: 0005 0202, @781 --> Speed = RTS 114.5 mph or 184.2 km/h + N 74.4 mph or 119.7 km/h = TTS 188.9 mph or 303.9 km/h
    • F-150 = 13 ranks lower with +1.1 mph RTS and +2.3 mph TTS (+1.9 km/h RTS and +3.9 km/h TTS).
    • F-150 vs DeZir performance evaluation: "The F-150 vs DeZir gap is very tight now. The F-150 is slightly superior in both raw top speed and total top speed, instead of being far worse in raw top speed and far better in total top speed. This means that the DeZir is worse in every way except for nitro duration, but that's still a big exception. Extra Tanks are very necessary."
  • 0105 3333, @771 (Dr. Healusion discovered this tune)
    • Total top speed = 190.1 mph or 306.0 km/h
    • Raw top speed = 114.5 mph or 185.0 km/h
    • DeZir equivalent: 0005 0202, @781 --> Speed = RTS 114.5 mph or 184.2 km/h + N 74.4 mph or 119.7 km/h = TTS 188.9 mph or 303.9 km/h
    • F-150 = 10 ranks lower with equal mph (or km/h) RTS and +1.2 mph TTS (+1.9 km/h TTS).
    • F-150 vs DeZir performance evaluation: "The F-150 vs DeZir gap is very tight now. The F-150 is equal in raw top speed but slightly superior in total top speed, instead of being far worse in raw top speed and far better in total top speed. This tune has slightly better handling and acceleration than the 768 tune. This means that the DeZir is worse in every way except for nitro duration, but that's still a big exception. Extra Tanks are very necessary."
  • 0405 0303, @827
    • Total top speed = 195.5 mph or 314.6 km/h
    • Raw top speed = 119.9 mph or 192.9 km/h
    • DeZir equivalent: 0105 0202, @816 --> Speed = RTS 118.4 mph or 190.5 km/h + N 74.4 mph or 119.7 km/h = TTS 192.8 mph 310.2 km/h
    • F-150 = 11 ranks higher with +1.5 mph RTS and +2.7 mph TTS (+2.4 km/h RTS and +4.4 km/h TTS).
    • F-150 vs DeZir performance evaluation: "The F-150 loses steam around rank 800+. Against the DeZir, it can still perform decently, but its speed is less impressive. Extra Tanks are still necessary."

Usage (Other)

The F-150 is a poor choice as a starter's vehicle and also a poor choice as a Class D TLE vehicle. However, the F-150 is sometimes featured in Tag Racing TLEs as the most powerful vehicle in its bracket.

Overall, the F-150 is best used as a low-tier Multiplayer Vehicle or for material rewards. The F-150 has a very bad farming race on Azure Coast which takes over 2 minutes to complete, in Season 9.

The F-150 is featured in the Career Mode.

The F-150 has a Free Class D Upgrade at Mastery challenge 5 and an Extra Tank at Mastery challenge 10. The F-150 is featured in three collections: Extra Horses, Heavyweights and Drive in Style.

The F-150 is an easy source of Licenses full a8because it is cheap to buy and upgrade. However, it has potential as a Multiplayer Vehicle so this may not be the best usage of the vehicle.

Price

As of the Motorcycles Update, the F-150 costs A8 credits small 11,000 (originally A8 credits small 65,000, then A8 credits small 71,000), one of the cheapest prices for a Class D vehicle.

The F-150 costs A8 credits small 175,750 to MAX and A8 credits small 22,962 to PRO. The F-150, like the DeZir, requires no Engine Cards (or rare/legendary tech) in its PRO upgrades.

Miscellaneous

The F-150 is completely resistant to small traffic without nitro activated and will destroy all small vehicles in its path, making it easy for the player to obtain a "Traffic Down" medal.

The F-150 has its own Knockdown event in Season 6. This is one of the very few Knockdown events that do not require a bonus star of Knockdowns without Wreck.
