The All-New Ford F-150
From its fully boxed, high-strength-steel frame to the use of high-strength, military-grade, aluminum alloys* in its body and bed, this F-150 takes tough to a whole new level. Weighing in as much as 700 lbs. less than its predecessor helps make this truck a whole lot more capable and more effective too. Plus, it accelerates, brakes and resists corrosion like never before. In addition, we standardized the chemistry of the aluminum alloy used in construction of the F-150 body and bed to facilitate recycling. Our aluminum scrap can be reclaimed and sent back into the manufacturing process to minimize waste.
Our new, fully-boxed high-strength steel frame is stronger and more rigid than ever with eight cross sections. Many steel components of the F-150 are designed to enable using a roll-forming process that minimizes weight and maintains strength.
