Ford is one of the rare car manufacturers that even though that they have something that is selling quite good, they still like to innovate, improve and take it one step further. One of the best examples of this is new F-150 pickup truck. The model that is currently on the sale is sold pretty well, customers love it and it got all positive reviews. However, Ford has seen lots of things that can be improved and that is the main reason they decided to introduce the all-new 2016 Ford F-150 to replace the current model.
Some of the most important changes to the exterior of the 2016 Ford F-150 are the ones that can’t be seen – unlike previous versions of this pickup truck, the newest version is going to be an aluminum crew cab, that is going to be completely reinforced by a steel ladder-frame framework. Although these are important changes to the structure the US manufacturer claims that the pickup is not going to be weaker and that since it is going to be significantly lighter, it is going to be able to be faster and deliver better performance. Some notable changes on the outside are going to be bigger wheels, bigger tires, elevated suspension, redesigned front (new headlights, new front bumper and a new chrome grille) and redesigned back (new taillights and rear bumper).
The 2016 Ford F-150 is not going to bring different interior, actually it is going to be quite similar to the one in the current model. However, the US manufacturer has invested some time into bringing some premium and luxury features into the cabin of this pickup – including some features that could only be seen in top-of-the-range luxury sedans. Depending on the trim level, seats could be made out of standard fabric cloth or they could have leather upholstery (only in the higher trim levels, for most of them it is a paid option). Company officials told to the press that they are especially working on creating a completely new seats, which should look similar to the ones in the current model, but they should be more comfortable and provide better support. The 2016 F-150 will probably get a premium sound system and satellite navigation, as part of the base trim level.
