2018 FORD F-150
2018 INTERIOR HIGHLIGHTS
The 2018 F-150 provides lots of places to store an assortment of things 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 area. 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.
2018 ALUMINUM BODY
Today, yesterday’s old meaning of tough lies far behind in the F-150 driver’s rearview mirror. Doing something the right way often results in multiple benefits. Case in point: going from steel to high-strength, military-grade , aluminum alloys 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 frame 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 the state-of-the-art roll-forming process that minimizes weight.
