Yesterday’s meaning of tough — heavy strength — has changed forever with high-strength, military-grade, aluminum alloy replacing conventional steel in the cab/bed of the stronger yet lighter Ford F-150. Not aluminum in the household sense, but heat-treated and hardened aluminum alloy — the same high-grade 6000-series used in big military and industrial applications. This bold concept took shape with advanced computer-aided design technology, followed by F-150 prototypes subjected to over 10 million cumulative miles of torturous testing on Ford proving grounds and in real world jobs.NHTSA OVERALL 5-STAR SAFETY RATING FOR F-150 SUPERCREW®.HIGH-STRENGTH, MILITARY-GRADE, ALUMINUM-ALLOY BODY.
Ford engineers work to make the F-150 pickup better every year and push the competition to try to keep up on the performance front. There are six engine choices, naturally aspirated and turbocharged, including the new 3.0L Power Stroke® V6 Turbo Diesel and the awesome high-output 3.5L EcoBoost ® in the Baja-bred F-150 Raptor. Auto Start-Stop Technology is on all engines. And five of the six engines feature the segment-exclusive* 10-speed automatic.
