Ford has such an amazing array of automobiles from cars to trucks to SUVs that it can be hard to keep track of all of them. One of their classics, the Ford F-150 full-size pickup truck, stands out from the crowd. It has been named the number one truck for over 38 years in a row. With an NHTS a five-star safety rating, it’s proof that Ford is doing the truck thing right.
I spoke with the team at Chino Hills Ford to get their opinion on whether there are any other trucks in the Los Angeles area that could compete with this fully aluminum, high-strength, military grade built Ford tough truck!
We don’t think there is, but I decided to go even further…what in Los Angeles could even come close to be as Ford Tough as the 2016 Ford F-150? Well, we came up with a few ideas;
World’s Strongest Man
The current World Record Deadlift is 1128 pounds – the 2016 Ford F-150 tows up to 12,200 pounds. That’s 6 tons. Sorry strong guy, the 2016 Ford F-150 totally wins.
Scientists have found that an alligator slams their jaws shut with 3,700 pounds per square inch (psi) of bite force – it only requires 150 to 200 psi for you to eat a steak, so that’s a pretty tough set of chompers.
A 2016 Ford F-150 can carry a payload of 3,270 lbs. That’s over a ton and a half, more than every other full-size pickup in its class. An Alligator can’t carry things on it’s back, so once again, the F-150 wins!
A diamond is the hardest natural substance on earth, but if it is placed in an oven and the temperature is raised to about 763 degrees Celsius (1405 degrees Fahrenheit), it will just vanish.
Okay, I couldn’t find anything that would actually correlate to this BUT the 2016 Ford F-150 does have the highest gas mileage of any full-size truck in its class with an EPA-estimated rating of 19 city/26 hwy/22 combined mpg. This means it won’t burn through your money for fuel, so you don’t have to watch it vanish every paycheck!
I think it’s clear that the 2016 Ford F-150 is the only full sized truck in all of Los Angeles that can claim this level of Ford toughness. If you want to try it out, head down to Chino Hills Ford and look at the entire lineup of new and pre-owned Fords, including the 2016 Ford F-150. With all the fantastic specials and incentives happening right now, it’s prime time to talk to the professional Ford finance team to take advantage of great low rates for well-qualified buyers. Now that’s being Ford Tough!
