Toughness of the 2019 Ford F-150
There is no better example of the “Built Ford Tough” motto than the best-selling Ford F-150. This truck sets the standard for the industry and has continually led with innovation and expertise. Here are some of the ways the 2019 Ford F-150 offers unmatched toughness.
High-Strength, Military-Grade, Aluminum-Alloy Body
With the only high-strength, military-grade, aluminum-alloy body in its class, the F-150 is ahead of the game. Engineers use a special heat-treating process to harden the aluminum alloy. Thanks to its lighter weight, the F-150 can deliver a higher power-to-weight ratio and maximize its payload and tow ratings.
Fully Boxed High-Strength Steel Frame
The F-150’s frame is made of up to 78% more high-strength steel than the previous generation’s frame. Despite being both stronger and more rigid, the new frame is up to 60 pounds lighter.
Smart Pickup Box
Along with offering best-in-class payload, the F-150’s bed is made for a variety of uses. Versatile, available features like the BoxLink™ system, stowable loading ramps, LED box lights, and an integrated tailgate step with lift assist make it easy to load up and secure whatever cargo you have.
Taking your F-150 off the pavement is something many owners do on a regular basis. The F-150 makes it easy with features like electronic shift-on-the-fly that lets you switch between two- or four-wheel-drive modes as needed. Some models include automatic 4WD mode, an electronic-locking rear differential, Hill Descent Control™, and other off-road ready features.
If you are looking for extreme off-road handling, the F-150 has you covered with the Raptor model. This truck can take you places conventional four-wheel drive vehicles can’t. It comes with features like valve monotube shocks, a Torque-On-Demand® transfer case, and an electronic-locking rear differential.
