HIGH-STRENGTH, MILITARY-GRADE, ALUMINUM-ALLOY BODY
The Ford F-150 has the only high-strength, military-grade, aluminum-alloy body in its class.* A heat-treating process is used to harden the aluminum alloy. Working with aluminum alloy allows an increase in gauge (or thickness) where needed to achieve strength without increasing weight. The lighter aluminum alloy allows for a higher power-to-weight ratio — plus maximum payload** and tow† ratings that are best in class.* Yet another benefit — resistance to dents.
*Class is Full-Size pickups under 8,500 lbs GVWR.
**Max payload on F-150 Regular Cab 8' box 4x2 with available 5.0L V8 engine and Max Trailer Tow and Heavy-Duty Payload Pkgs. Class is Full-Size Pickups under 8,500 lbs. GVWR. Max payload varies and is based on accessories and vehicle configuration. See label on door jamb for carrying capacity of a specific vehicle.
†Max towing on F-150 SuperCab 8’ box and SuperCrew 4x2 with available 3.5L EcoBoost, Max Trailer Tow Pkg. Class is Full-Size Pickups under 8,500 lbs. GVWR. Max towing varies based on cargo, vehicle configuration, accessories and number of passengers.
Payload and towing are independent attributes and may not be achieved simultaneously.
