F-150 Ford Truck What Makes It Popular?
It may be hard to believe but the Ford F-150 has been in production for over 70 years. What is not hard to believe is it is the best-selling vehicle in North America and best-selling line of trucks in Canada. This means there are many F-150s on the road, one of them may even be yours. Here are four reasons why we think the F-150 is Canada’s favorite truck.
The F-150 offers seven models to choose from, three body styles, a choice of engines, rear or 4-wheel-drive and a huge list of features and options. You can literally build the perfect F-150 to fit your job, family size or level of adventure. The F-150 also comes in Special Editions available at some dealerships or available to order that can make any truck lover’s dreams come true.
Most pickup trucks on the road are built using steel panels. Steel, when exposed to harsh environments, winter salt, dents and dings will start to corrode and rust. The Ford F-150 is constructed using military grade aluminum. Aluminum is not only corrosion resistant but also more lightweight, taking nearly 318 kg off the total weight of the F-150.
The F-150 offers two engine choices, one fuel-efficient and powerful and one fuel-efficient and with maximum power. This allows you to choose the engine you need for work or play. Whether you are on a jobsite every day, climbing hills on the weekend or just want to get through the snow, there is an engine that fits your needs. The 3.5-litre EcoBoost also offers a towing capability of over 6,000 kg.
Ford prides itself on building vehicles that are not only durable but also safe. The F-150 comes with a long list of safety features including ABS, 360-degree camera, rear parking sensor and plenty of airbags. The 2018 F150 was actually a recipient of the IIHS Top Safety Pick Award.
