The Best gets Better for 2016
The track record for the Ford F-150 really speaks for itself, doesn’t it? Consider the evidence: the F-150 has been the best-selling vehicle in the United States for more than 30 years, as well as the best selling pickup for more than 40 years. Put simply, there is “doing something right,” and then there’s “doing exactly what Ford has been doing.”
For the new model year, the 2016 Ford F-150 in Scottsboro, AL isn’t content to just sit on its considerable laurels. It returns to the Harbin Automotive lineup picking up exactly where it left off, delivering enhanced performance, handling, technology and design, just as it always has.
It all starts under the hood, where the latest F-150 offers four terrific powertrain options for Alabama drivers. Standard for 2016 is a naturally aspirated 3.5L V6, one that makes great use of the F-150’s lighter weight with its 282 hp and 25 highway mpg. Next up is a 2.7L EcoBoost V6, which reels off 325 hp, 375 hp and up to 26 highway mpg. The new 3.5L EcoBoost keeps things progressing with its 12,200-pound towing capacity and 282 hp, while the 5.0L V8 sums things up nicely with 385 hp and 387 hp. In any configuration, you can be confident that, with the 2016 Ford F-150, performance is always at a premium level.
When the new Ford F-150 was still in its conceptual stages, there was worry that it wouldn’t live up to its lofty billing. A year into its revolutionary redesign, it’s pretty safe to say that those fears have been laid to rest. After 10 million miles of cumulative torture testing, and after shedding up to 700 pounds do to its use of high-grade aluminum, the 2016 Ford F-150 is both the safest, most durable, and smoothest-riding model in its illustrious history. And to think, all of these amazing plaudits can be offered before we even go inside its cabin.
Once inside the 2016 Ford F-150, drivers are greeted with tech and convenience features that are truly unlike any other. The cabin is a fully functional workspace, with twice the storage space of the previous F-150. Meanwhile, the updated SYNC 3 tech interface uses voice-activated technology to easily stream music, access turn-by-turn navigation or use phone functions. Factor in the many comfort and safety amenities, including the available 8-inch LCD Productivity Screen, and it’s apparent that this model is playing chess while the competition plays checkers.
The 2016 Ford F-150 is set to arrive at Harbin Automotive in fall of 2015. To learn more or to schedule a test drive, we encourage you to visit our dealership today!
