FULLY BOXED HIGH-STRENGTH STEEL FRAME
The fully boxed frame is made of more high-strength steel (up to 78 percent at 70,000 psi) and larger cross sections than the previous frame. And while stronger and more rigid, this frame is also lighter by up to 60 lbs. because many of the components are fabricated using the state-of-the-art roll-forming process that minimizes weight.
AUTO START-STOP TECHNOLOGY
Auto Start-Stop Technology is a feature on all F-150 engines. When you come to a stop, the engine shuts off to save fuel and restarts immediately when the brake is released. Designed smart for truck applications, Auto Start-Stop deactivates when it wouldn’t be needed such as when you’re towing a trailer or running in 4-wheel drive.
The F-150 can tow more than ever before — and more than any other pickup in its class — with the available 3.5L EcoBoost twin-turbo V6. This second-generation EcoBoost is rated at 375 horsepower and best-in-class* 470 lb.-ft. of torque, beating out all gas and diesel competitors.
