The F-150 body is made of high strength, military-grade, aluminum alloy and is now up to 317 kg (700 lbs.) lighter than the previous generation. Not aluminum in the household sense, but heat-treated and hardened aluminum alloy — the same high-grade 6000-series used in big military and industrial applications. Beneath this aluminum-alloy body is a fully boxed frame made of up to 78 percent high-strength steel.
The F-150 can tow more than any other pickup in its class* with the powerful 3.5L EcoBoost® twin-turbo V6 with port fuel and direct injection (PFDI). 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.
