Revolutionary Body

The advanced construction techniques used by the latest generation of the Ford F-150 has set competitors like the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 scrambling to adapt. With its class-exclusive, high-strength, military-grade, aluminum-alloy body, the newest generation is up to 700 pounds lighter than the previous one. This means you’ll enjoy agile performance and spirited acceleration, plus an inbuilt resistance to dents and corrosion that will naturally appeal to those who use their light truck for work as well as play.

Best-in-Class Payload

If you want to appreciate just how great an impact the new body has had on capability, all you need to do is compare the Ford F-150’s maximum payload rating to that of the latest Chevrolet Silverado 1500:

  • Ford F-150: Tows up to a best-in-class 3,270 pounds
  • Chevrolet Silverado 1500: Tows up to just 2,430 pounds

The Ford F-150’s bed is smarter as well as stronger thanks to its available class-exclusive BoxLink system. This is one of the most flexible boxes available, with reinforced sides, four lockable, removable cleats, and four interface plates to accommodate accessories.


The 2017 Ford F-150 is a perfect example of workhorse power combining with state-of-the-art technology, with features including:

  • 360-Degree Camera with Split-View Display: Enjoy a 360-degree virtual bird’s-eye view of the Ford F-150 and surrounding area, with the option to cycle between different side views.
  • 8-Inch LCD Productivity Screen: Create a customized home screen to access all your most vital information in a flash.
  • Remote Tailgate Release: Need to drop the tailgate from afar? You can do so with just the press of a button on your key fob.

Unfortunately, these features are entirely absent from the 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500.
