Anyone who knows anything about pickup trucks knows that Ford has had a winner on its hands with the F-150 pickup for decades; in fact, it’s been the best-selling truck in America for 32 years! Many may have wondered how the new aluminum-alloy body would impact sales and performance, but it seems it’s been nothing but great news for this amazing pickup, recently named 2015 North American Truck of the Year. What is there to like about this truck? Plenty!
According to a recent car news article at the Herald News, the 2015 F-150 has over 100 new patents. With a Blind Spot Information System, Lane-Keeping System, Curve Control, Active Park Assist, and other features, drivers will find this pickup one of the safest on the road. Maneuvering tight spaces is no longer a problem with the 360-degree camera with split-view display. Perhaps most notable of all is the fact that the aluminum-alloy body made it possible for the automaker to shave off 700 pounds, improving fuel efficiency by up to 20%.
Safety is a big deal with this pickup; in fact, the NHTSA’s New Car Assessment Program awarded the 2015 Ford F-150 a 5 star overall safety rating.
