Even though the 2015 Ford F-150’s switch to a durable aluminum alloy body has removed 700 lbs and, according to Fortune, ‘this truck is no lightweight.'

Analysts were skeptical at first, but maintaining strength while reducing mass has allowed the Ford to claim the best fuel efficiency in its category; and, with positive feedback from dealerships worldwide, the change to lighter metals has proven its mettle through increased acceleration and improved towing capabilities.

This short video breaks it down nicely:


 

The EPA-confirmed 26 Highway MPG is a game changer. The 3.5-Liter V6 Ti-VCT and the 5.0-Liter V8 boast 25 and 22 MPG highway respectively. But the biggest surprise is that the smaller 2.7-Liter EcoBoost® engine easily outperforms the 3.5-Liter and encroaches upon the horsepower and torque ratings of the larger V8 with:

325 Horsepower
375 ft-lbs of torque
Max towing of 8,500 lbs
Max payloads of 2,250 lbs

For anyone who’s looking for a full-sized workhorse with best-in-class towing that gets better gas mileage than most SUVs of the same year, the 2015 Ford F-150 is the only truck to consider. Schedule your test drive today.
