MEET THE NEW 2017 FORD F-150 PICKUP TRUCK IN CARMAN, MB
You would have to transport yourself decades into the past before you came across a top-rated pickup truck that underwent such a radical transformation as the Ford F-150 light duty. The key word here is light. Since 2016, the newly redesigned F-150 has replaced most of its steel construction throughout the vehicle with a military-grade aluminum alloy that has resulted in a weight reduction of just over 317 kg (700 pounds).
Considering that light duty trucks are used just as often for regular driving as they are for work or hauling, this weight reduction results in greater fuel efficiency for you, as well as increased capability. The aluminum door panels are also more resistant to scratches, dings, and dents than their predecessors, keeping your ride looking nicer for longer.
There’s a whole lot more to read and get excited about! The 2017 Ford F-150 is now available here at Carman Ford. Come in today to test drive one yourself, and see if you can notice the difference. We carry plenty of F-150 models in our inventory, including the Lariat, King Ranch, and top-end Platinum trims
