The Ford F-150 Astounds at the Detroit Auto Show

2014 has just begun, and the 2015 models are already making their debut at the Detroit Auto Show. The biggest news that everyone was talking about were the exciting changes that Ford has in store for its best-selling F-150 pickup truck. Take a moment to learn about the new offerings for this rugged truck, and then consider taking a test drive of the 2014 model at your Bedford Ford dealership to see the differences.

The biggest change for this truck is the body. Ford is switching from an all-steel body, to a military-grade aluminum one, which makes the truck hundreds of pounds lighter than previous models—at least 700 pounds lighter, to be exact. The truck still comes with a steel backbone for those who are worried about the strength of the body. Combining the loss in weight with two EcoBoost engine options, the new F-150 should offer better, more responsive handling than the heavier competition. The options 5.0-liter V8 engine option offers unparalleled power for the toughest jobs.

Ford has also redesigned the body to make this truck more futuristic and alluring. The improved grille and clean angles add some visual appeal, but the bed offers the most changes. Buyers in 2015 will find there are great new features, including flexible storage bin options and detachable tie-downs, that offer better storage for smaller items.

When the 2015 Ford F-150 hits the market, you can be sure to find a model to test out for yourself at your local Bedford Ford dealer.
