Military-grade, aluminum-alloy body —it’s the same 5,000/6,000-series high-strength grade used in the aerospace, commercial transportation and energy industries. Our objective: reduce weight while increasing strength. What’s more, aluminum-alloy is resistant to dents and corrosion.
The fully boxed frame has eight crossmembers (five through-welded) and is made of up to 78 percent high-strength steel. And while stronger and more rigid, this frame is lighter by up to 60 lbs. (27 kg)* because many of the components are fabricated using state-of-the-art roll forming and tailor-rolled blanks....less
Our goal in building the current Ford F-150 was to set the industry bar for durability for years to come. So we subjected it to over 16 million kilometres of cumulative torture testing – in labs, at proving grounds, over high-altitude passes and through desert valleys, while hauling huge loads and towing heavy trailers at temperature extremes from -28 to 48 degrees Celsius.
Today’s F-150 is not only light in weight, it offers:
*When properly equipped. Maximum payloads of 3,270 lbs for F-150 4x2 with available 5.0L Ti-VCT V8 engine. Class is Full-Size Pickups under 8,500 lbs. GVWR based on Ford segmentation.
**When properly equipped with available 3.5L EcoBoost® 4x2. Class is Full-Size Pickups under 8,500 lbs. (3,855 kg) GVWR based on Ford segmentation. Versus previous generation prior to 2015.
†Government of Canada-estimated rating of 12.2L/100 km (23 mpg) city, 9.3L/100 km (30 mpg) hwy, and 10.9L/100 km (26 mpg) combined2, 2.7L EcoBoost®, 4x2. Actual mileage will vary. Class is Full-Size Pickups under 8,500 lbs. (3,855 kg) GVWR. Based on Ford segmentation.
Try to avoid water higher than the bottom of the hubs and proceed slowly. Refer to your owner’s manual for detailed information regarding driving through water.
Ford is proud to announce that the F-150 is the four-time best value winner102. The award determines Best Value from a wide range of factors, like depreciation, insurance and financing. The F-150 also earned the lowest maintenance and operating costs in its class.
Here’s how else the F-150 gives you undisputed value and capability when you need to get the job done.
We’re honoured to see the F-150 come out on top in the category once again for Vincentric, the authority in automotive value analysis since 2004....less
