The 2019 FORD F-150 at Kamloops Ford
Think the F-150 capability has been outstanding in the past? Today’s F-150 is not only capable, but also strong yet lightweight, delivering best-in-class maximum payload. But that’s not all. Towing is easier for this F-150 and for you too, with technologies like the available Pro trailer Backup assist feature, and the F-150’s cleverly designed pickup box which helps you work more productively.
Yesterday’s meaning of tough—which put the heavy in heavy duty—has changed forever with Ford using a high-strength, military-grade aluminum alloy to replace conventionally used steel for a stronger yet lighter F-150. Not aluminum in the household sense, but heat-treated and hardened aluminum alloy—the same high-grade 6000-series used in big military and industrial applications. The idea became a reality with new computer-aided design technology, followed by F-150 prototypes subjected to over 16 million cumulative kilometres of torture testing on Ford proving grounds and real world job sites. Today, yesterday’s old meaning of tough lies far behind in the F-150 driver’s rearview mirror.

2019 INTERIOR HIGHLIGHTS
The 2019 F-150 provides lots of places to store an assortment of items inside the cab. You’ll also find plenty of space to stow items in the door-trim panel bins and the under the seat storage areas. There’s even space for a laptop inside the available flow-through centre console. The F-150 also features a fully flat rear-load floor with under-seat storage in the SuperCab and SuperCrew models.
THE F-150'S ALUMINUM BODY
Doing things the right way often results in multiple benefits. Case in point: going from steel to a high-strength military-grade aluminum alloy in the F-150 cab and bed. Hardening aluminum alloy through heat-treating produces greater strength. Working with aluminum alloy also allows engineers to increase gauge (or thickness) where needed to achieve extra strength without increasing weight. The stronger F-150 weighs up to 700 pounds less than the previous generation, resulting in greater power-to-weight ratio, enhanced fuel efficiency, plus higher max payload and tow ratings that are best-in-class*. Yet another benefit—resistance to dents and corrosion. The fully boxed frame is made of more high-strength steel (up to 78 percent at 70,000 psi) and larger cross sections than frames in the previous generation. And while stronger and more rigid, this frame is also lighter by up to 60 lbs. (27 kg)* because many of the components are fabricated using a state-of-the-art roll-forming process that minimizes weight.
Ford’s F-Series offers a broad range of available features from the integrated tailgate step and deployable box steps, to the 360-degree camera, SYNC® 3 system, and SYNC® Connect. So you can work smarter, and more productively. FordPass also provides a smarter way to move and offers features like contacting your dealer and Roadside Assistance, finding parking and gas stations (while comparing fuel prices along your route), as well as connecting to your available SYNC Connect modem to:
– Remotely start your vehicle and schedule recurring start times
– Lock and unlock your vehicle remotely
– Check your approximate odometer reading, fuel level, and distance to empty
– Locate your parked vehicle
– As well as enjoy a Wi-Fi hotspot with the ability to connect up to 10 devices at once, up to 50 feet outside the vehicle.
The class-exclusive* available remote tailgate release lets you lock or unlock the tailgate with the key fob or inside door switch. Release the tailgate with the key fob too. It’s among the features that redefine the workspace of the F-150 pickup bed.
