Ford has created a full-size pickup truck that looks bulky, sturdy and heavy. While many are sceptical about the design of F-150, rugged and outdoor type individuals can enjoy its feel and power behind the bulky exterior.
F-150’s truck bed is aluminum made and sadly, most of its body consists of non-iron materials. Having that info in mind, this is where sceptics open their criticism about F-150. Could a truck mostly built of aluminum-alloy carry a heavy 2.5L V6 engine? Ford begs to defer that not all heavy set iron-clad bodies give off the actual strength its aura emits.
Furthermore, the legendary vehicle brand stated their redefinition of pickup through the following features:
- All-new BoxLink™ is a configurable pickup box interface system adaptable for a wide array of available Ford and aftermarket add-ons that includes 2-Track.
- LED Box Lights are powerful lights for a nighttime job.
- Stowable Loading Ramps that can easily load stuffs like motorcycles and mowers.
- Remote Tailgate Releasethat can discharge and adjust the tailgate with the key fob.
No wonder that in its rankings with other top pick up vehicles of its category, it still ranked number 1. It went up against Chevrolet Silverado 1500, GMC Sierra 1500 and RAM 1500.
