Combining Military Strength Aluminum Alloy and High Strength Steel is the winning formula behind Ford’s New 2015 Ford F-150. The bold new approach to truck production promises to be stronger than previous F-150 models resulting in a truck that produces efficiency without compromise.

So where’s all the aluminum located in the truck you might ask? According to ford, the body panels and cab walls, one unstressed cross-member in the frame and various internal parts. The rest of the frame is steel, mostly high-strength steel.

3.5L Ecoboost


325 horsepower and 375 lb.-ft. of torque. Max payload 2,250 lbs. and 8,500-lb. max towing. The Ecoboost technology promises to delivers the kind of power you’d expect from a V8 with the efficiency of a V6.
