Ford F-150 Durability - Ford Middle East

DURABILITY

Durable safety structure

We used strength-proven materials and subjected them to over 10 million miles of cumulative testing to make this next-generation F-150 the most durable and capable ever. With its high-strength, aluminum-alloy body and high-strength steel frame, the F-150 underwent extensive computer test simulations and crash testing to help ensure its structural integrity in front, side, rear and rollover impacts. We improved upon the 2015 F-150 occupant protection equipment by adding class-exclusive1 available inflatable rear safety belts that help distribute crash force energy across more of the torso than the traditional safety belt. And the F-150 is engineered with active safety features such as AdvanceTrac® with Roll Stability Control, Curve Control and Trailer Sway Control systems.

We tested the F-150 tough

Over 10 million cumulative miles of testing made it possible to build our new F-150 stronger and more durable than any previous generation of this iconic pickup truck. We torture-tested prototypes in labs, at our Ford proving grounds, over high-altitude passes and through desert valleys, while hauling huge loads and towing heavy trailers at temperature extremes from -20 to 120 degrees Fahrenheit. We then built production prototypes and subjected them to the same brutality.

Running the Baja 1000

When testing the durability and endurance of a truck in a real-world venue, why not pull out all the stops? Like running the grueling Baja 1000. But we also wanted to gauge the overall capability of the eventual 2015 production F-150. So we used as many stock parts as we could. Outside of a set of lift springs, FOX Racing Shox, a fuel cell in the bed, a roll cage, and high-performance BFGoodrich® all-terrain tires, every component was stock, even the factory transmission cooler and the engine filter. And all we ever had to change during the race was the engine filter. Running a truck thus equipped under such brutal conditions was difficult enough. After completing the Baja 1000, we put a few more thousand miles on the odometer -- driving that EcoBoost-powered F-150 all the way back to Michigan.

Lightweight aluminum meets high-strength steel

 

With its class-exclusive high-strength, aluminum-alloy body and high-strength 70,000-psi steel frame, this next-generation F-150 is much lighter than the previous model. Yet, amazingly, it’s stronger and delivers more towing and hauling capability to meet the ultimate test – your toughest jobs, day after working day.

You Tested the F-150 Tough

 

We’re not the only ones who tested the toughness of the new F-150. We put F-150s in the hands of people like you, people working in some of the most demanding industries. These seasoned truckers really know how to take a pickup to the extremes of durability – and they did just that with the new F-150.
