2017 F-150 in O'Fallon

Lighter, Stronger, & Better Than Ever-The 2017 Ford F-150 Drops Weight and Gains Capability

For anyone in the O'Fallon, IL area or the surrounding communities of Belleville, Collinsville, Fairview Heights, Granite City, and St. Clair County who is in the business of doing business, you probably know better than we do that it takes the right sort of work truck to keep up with worksite demands. Handsome good looks can only go so far-and truly, the 2017 Ford F-150 gives off an air of strength and beauty in one-but if you're looking for unparalleled capability, time-tested strength & longevity, as well as cutting-edge innovation, you're looking for the 2017 Ford F-150, which recently dropped a little weight to up its strength, payload, and capability. With up to 700 pounds cut over the previous year's model, you'll get improved hauling capacity (best-in-class when properly equipped), more durability, and a stronger body, which all culminate in one incredible worksite companion. If you're wondering how Ford's engineers achieved such incredible improvements all while dropping the F-150's weight, it owes mainly to one crucial change: the adoption of aluminum-alloy body panels over steel. Ford uses high-strength, military-grade aluminum alloy panels and high-strength steel for the frame. With innovation and capability like this, you don't really have to wonder why the Ford F-Series trucks have been America's best-selling pickups for 40 years straight.

If you're wondering why a seemingly small change (steel to aluminum-alloy body panels) can create such a positive impact, it comes from the nearly 700 pound reduction in weight, which meant that Ford's engineers were able to reinvest those weight savings in other areas, like hauling capability, payload, and safety. The new body panels and frame are every bit as strong as the old ones, but they deliver quite the punch. The power-to-weight ratio in the 2017 Ford F-150 is vastly improved over previous years, delivering better acceleration, a more responsive steering feel, quicker braking, more pulling & hauling power, and to cap it all off, best-in-class fuel economy.

The 2017 Ford F-150 received the highest rating available (5 stars) from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
