Ford F150: Reduced weight, strong performance

Ford F-150

April 11, 2019

The 2017 Ford F150 is a truck that has a lot to offer and is greatly enhanced in comparison to the previous generation. Namely, the most important features include enhanced EcoBoost, reduced weight and a 10-speed automatic transmission. In addition to this, the truck body is made from high-strength materials which tests have shown and proven that the F150 is much safer.

First things first. The 2017 Ford F-150 comes with the 3.4-litre EcoBoost and a 10-speed Selectshift automatic transmission, which provides this truck not only with exceptional driveability but also, it helps improve fuel efficiency during city or highway driving while maintaining towing capability. It has 375-horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque, which is 50 lb-ft more in comparison to its predecessor. This confirms the fact that its acceleration and performance are greatly improved, but that, at the same time, its main function is not diminished at all.

Lighter And Stronger For Improved Usability

Another very important enhancement is the reduced weight of the truck- it is estimated that the 2017 generation is lighter around 350 lbs. This was achieved by making the truck body and cargo box from high-strength, military-grade, aluminum alloys which means that this roadster does not rust and it resists corrosion. It is said that the F150 has the strongest frame ever made, so the fact that it has great scores on safety tests comes as no surprise. You can be sure that you will not find a safer truck than the F150.

The Ford F 150 comes with 6 seats, but if you need more cargo space, this can be changed so that there are only 3 seats. On the other hand, when the maximum of 6 people is in the truck, you do not have to worry whether there will be enough space since there is plenty of headroom and legroom. Some important features that this vehicle comes with are Ford’s SYNC 3 infotainment system with an 8-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity, navigation and sunroof.

To help you better navigate when reversing or in tight spots is definitely the 360-degree camera with Split-view Display. There are 4 cameras that give you a bird’s-eye view, while the front-facing camera has a lens washer that can clean it if it gets dirty, and it is activated when the windshield wipers are used.  This is not only helpful with important blind spots during parking or towing, but also with detecting obstacles down low on off-road trails.

With EcoBoost, the F150 has everything truck customers would want- great performance, good value and better fuel economy, which means that you can count on it to tow, haul, work and even play like no other from dusk till dawn. Wait no more and get one of these because you can be sure that the Ford F150 will be there for you if you need to transport some really heavy goods to your cottage in the hills, or you just want to enjoy off-road adventures.
