And, each year, it outpaces all other trucks in sales and performance. In honor of the F-150, Courtesy Ford Lincoln has put together this little list of reasons why you should stop in today to take an F-150 for a test drive.
#5 – The Latest Ford F-150 Is Better and More Powerful than Ever
Like just about any task, it takes time to develop the greatest things. For going on seven decades, the Ford Motor Company has produced this iconic truck, and the latest one is the most heavy duty and strongest F-150 ever. The newest pickup is built with a high-strength, stiffer steel frame and military grade aluminum alloy body.
Compared to previous model years, it receives better gas mileage, has a greater payload, and is much lighter. There are also four engine choices delivering unmatched power: 5.0L TiVCT V8, all new 2.7L EcoBoost V6, 3.5L EcoBoost V6, and the new 3.5L TiVCT V6.
Also added to the new F-150 are eleven class exclusive features. These include a remote open tailgate that gently lowers the tailgate at the push of a button and LED taillights, spotlights, and headlights. Plus, to allow easy access in and out of the truck bed, there is an upgraded extendable tailgate step that folds out of the tailgate.
There is all new cargo box lighting, and for state of the art cargo management and seamless organization, an all-new boxlink accessory system is also in the truck bed of this Ford. London Ontario F-150 shoppers will also be delighted to find it features a class exclusive 360 degree camera view, eight inch productivity screen, and a class leading sized moonroof. And, not to be outdone, there is new technology that includes 110 volt/400 watt outlets, a smart trailer tow module, and various other new truck apps.
#4 – The F-150 Has Won Countless Awards
From Popular Mechanics Magazine and PickupTrucks.com, the Ford F-150 was the clear winner of the Light-Duty Challenge. Automotive experts can spot a good thing when they see it. The F-150 dominated in the performance oriented competitive events finishing in first or second in eleven out of thirteen events.
For four years, well-known automotive industry experts Motor Trend has named the F-150 Truck of the Year. Vehicles must be all new or have undergone a significant change to be considered for this title. In addition, the F-150 is a Top Safety Pick of the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety.
#3 – The F-150 Is the Truck People Use to Get Work Done
It is no surprise that F-150 pickups are used most often for the toughest job all over Canada because they are built Ford Tough. In a recent survey, workers in fifteen work and labor intensive job areas were asked what type of trucks they used. The F-150 won in every category. 63 percent of Government truck drivers, 60 percent of Maintenance workers and Gas, Sanitary, and Electric Service workers, and 70 percent of Hazmat truck drivers drove an F-150.
