The F-150 underwent several changes to bring you a more powerful truck. This pickup comes equipped with a 3.5-L EcoBoost Engine with a 10-speed transmission which significantly improves the acceleration and overall performance of the vehicle. Ford's previous model featured a 6-speed transmission. The vehicle features a V6 engine with twin turbos instead of V8 with one turbo. This is because a twin turbo V6 is as powerful as a V8 with a turbo, however the V6 is a lot lighter. The weight difference gives the new F-150 better handling, accelerating, breaking, and gas mileage.
The body of the new F-150 is now made of aluminum-alloy and is reinforced by high-strength steel body frame to assure safety for driver and passengers. The aluminum-alloy body of the vehicle is stronger and lighter than previous models. In fact, the body weighs up to 700 pounds lighter. This helps the vehicle with improved towing, fuel efficiency, control, breaking for the vehicle, and also makes the truck a safer vehicle.
SYNC® is back and better than ever. The new SYNC® 3 system is improved from previous models and offers easy to use software. Ford offers a bigger 8-inch display with many improved features. Sync now comes with a capacitive touch screen instead of a resistive touch screen. This means users will not have to press hard on the touch screen in order for it to register where you pressed. Capacitive touch screen uses electrical properties of the human body to sense where the person touched on the screen. The result of this is an easy to touch screen with immediate responses. You can play music, connect your android or iPhone, and use voice recognition controls among many other features with Sync.
As cars change from generation to generation, it is expected for them to improve. Ford held itself to high standards in order to bring its customers an all new truck that exceeds all expectations. From the body and performance to the touch screen system inside the vehicle, Ford has improved every part of the truck in order to make it the best of its class.
