While most automakers today are emphasizing fuel economy as well as better electric powertrains, Ford has decided to concentrate on muscle. The new 2016 Ford F-150 is certainly designed to excel at off-roading. It is a monster of an off-roader that is as close as you can get to a CORR Truck. Its earlier avatar was capable of producing 411 horsepower from a 6.2-liter V8 engine.
2016 Ford F-150: Engine and Fuel Economy
Under the hood, a V8 engine will no longer power the new 2016 Ford F-150. Instead, it will get a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine. The company has not provided any concrete details regarding how much horsepower and torque this engine is capable of producing, but it did add that the new engine would be able to produce higher power than the earlier engine. The Ford F-150 engine, according to reports, will be capable of producing 365 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque, which makes it one very powerful engine. The new engine will be coupled to an eight-speed automatic transmission and the vehicle rides on a new and very efficient suspension. The 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine is one of the most well liked engines in the Ford lineup. It has already powered up the Ford Taurus, Flex, Expedition and Explorer. The new engine is very impressive and a good reason to opt for this off-roader. This engine can easily power up a half-ton truck and besides that it is also quite fuel-efficient as well.
2016 Ford F-150: Redesign Exterior and Interior
The new 2016 Ford F-150 will weigh about 300 to 400 pounds less than its predecessor. This has been achieved by using aluminum in the construction of the body. The new vehicle, which is lighter in weight, will offer even better off-roading capabilities. Inside, the vehicle has been given some new features. For example, the instruments will be easy to see by the driver. The dials are the conventional types and not LCD screens as is common in the LFA. Other features in the cabin include satellite navigation and leather upholstery as well as climate control.
The 2016 Ford F-150 is the answer to the prayers of those who want to run through rocks and dirt as well as barren deserts at very high speeds. Not only does this off-roader do all that but also it maintains road safety at the same time. The earlier model impressed buyers. This new model should do that and more. The frame of the vehicle is made from steel while the body is made out of aluminum. What’s more, the Ford F-150 rides on excellent shocks that ensure that the vehicle will not crack even when subjected to extreme pressure.
