For people who depend on their trucks every workday, it comes down to one all-important question: can they get the job done? At Ford, we take it a major step further: how can we build trucks that go that crucial extra mile and then some? We design by the principle that the best truck for today is the one engineered to meet the challenges of performance, efficiency and dependability long into the future. So we subjected F-150 to over 10 million miles of cumulative Torture-Testing to earn its Built Ford Tough® badge. And it more than delivered. It’s no surprise that the F-Series remains the top-selling truck brand overall, for 39 years.
The body of the F-150 is High-Strength, Military-Grade, Aluminum Alloy. The Frame is High-Strength Steel.
Our goal in building the current Ford F-150 was to set the industry bar for durability for years to come. So we subjected it to over 10 million miles of cumulative Torture-Testing – in labs, at proving grounds, over high-altitude passes and through desert valleys, while hauling huge loads and towing heavy trailers at temperature extremes from -20 to 120 degrees Fahrenheit. Today’s F-150 is not only light in weight, but also offers best-in-class hauling capability.
The F-150 Raptor is leaner, meaner and more powerful than ever. It’s approximately 500 pounds lighter than the previous generation, thanks to a High-Strength, Military-Grade, Aluminum Alloy Body plus a fully-boxed Steel Frame. It also features a new twin-turbo, intercooled DOHC 24-valve high-output 3.5L EcoBoost® engine with direct fuel injection, a 10-speed automatic transmission, all-new Terrain Management System and 3.0-inch FOX Racing Shox™.
