2015 Ford F150Chicago and Manteno motoring enthusiasts will already be well aware of the 2016 Ford F-150’s innovative construction. Using a military-grade aluminum-alloy body with a high-strength steel frame, it’s stronger than competitors while also remaining up to 700 lbs. lighter than pre-2015 models.

This means increased acceleration and outrageous capability for both towing and payload:

  • Maximum Tow Rating: The 2016 F-150 is able to haul up to a Best-in-Class 12,200 lbs.
  • Maximum Payload Rating: The 2016 F-150 is able to carry up to a Best-in-Class 3,270 lbs.

Drivers will also be able to take advantage of the highly-versatile Class-Exclusive BoxLink system. Four lockable, removable cleats let you secure even oddly-shaped cargo with ease, and four heavy-duty interface plates are added to the side of the box – they can be configured to accommodate a vast range of available Ford and aftermarket accessories.


2015 Ford F150 The 2016 model is the safest Ford F-150 ever, with over 10 million miles of cumulative testing, 31 safety innovations, and a 5-Star overall crash test rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

Safety goes right to the core of the vehicle thanks to its fully boxed, high-strength steel frame, which features eight crossmembers to provide superior resilience to damage in the unlikely event of a collision occurring. At the same time, the 2016 F-150 gets some of the most impressive protection technology around, including:

  • Class-Exclusive Pro Trailer Backup Assist: Rotate the knob left or right to indicate where you want the trailer to go, then let the advanced rear view camera alert you to obstacles while the system makes navigating feel more natural.
  • Curve Control: Detects the speed of the car while entering a curve. If speed is excessive, engine torque is reduced and brake-pressure is applied.
