Since 1977, Ford F-Series has introduced one innovation after another and 2017 is no different. The 2017 Ford F-150 is making every other truck history and here are ten reason why.
- High Strength, Military-Grade, Aluminum-Alloy Body
Class-exclusive military-grade, aluminum alloy body — this is the same 5,000/6,000-series high-strength grade of aluminum that’s used in industries such as aerospace, commercial transportation and energy. The objective is to reduce weight while increasing strength. What’s more, aluminum-alloy is resistant to dents and corrosion.
- The Most Towing Power
The 2017 Ford F-150 can tow more than any other pickup in its class – up to 12,200 lbs. with the available 3.5L EcoBoost. The 2.7L EcoBoost, the most fuel-efficient F-150 engine, is a V6 delivering an impressive maximum tow rating of 8,500 lbs. And F-150 offers smart features that help make towing easier.
- The Best Payload
Reducing weight is an effective way to increase payload. And that’s what we’ve achieved with our next-generation Ford F-150 – by up to 700 pounds. Greater strength with less weight achieves a 3,270-lb. maximum payload rating that is best in class.
- Highest Gas Mileage
Less weight by up to 700 pounds results in a higher power-to-weight ratio plus increased fuel economy. And engine technology helps balance the demands for power and efficiency.
- The Safest F-150 Ever
The 2017 Ford F-150 SuperCab and SuperCrew when equipped with optional Forward Collision Warning has earned the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s Top Safety Pick Award.
- No Rust Aluminum Panels
No body rust on the aluminum panels because it’s military-grade aluminum. No rust, ever.
- Pro Trailer Backup Assist
Whether you’re a towing novice or a seasoned pro, Pro Trailer Backup Assist™ makes backing up a trailer as easy as turning a knob.
- Ten Million Miles of Testing
This is the most rigorously tested F-150 ever. Ford punished it so you don’t have to.
- More Than 100 Patents
With more than 100 patents F-150 is the leader of the pack when it comes to innovations. Features such as EcoBoost Engine, 5-star safety, best-in-class payload, and best in class towing set the F- 150 apart from the competition.
- F-Series Best-Selling Truck Brand For 39 Years
Last but not least the Ford F-150 has been the best-selling brand of trucks for 39 straight years.
