What is the most widely known and used statement in the truck world? If you have never been a Ford Truck owner, then you may not be aware of what the term “Built Ford Tough” really means. Have you ever heard the saying “all bark and no bite”? The definition of this phrase is; full of big talk but lacking action, power, or substance. Let’s just say that “Built Ford Tough” is the exact opposite of “all bark and no bite”. Today, our team at Keystone Ford, here in Chambersburg, PA, are going to walk you through why Ford rules the world of trucks and why Ford has plenty of bite to back up its bark!
In the world of trucks, towing capacity is one of the most important factors to consider when buying a truck. Ford trucks consistently excel in their ability to tow anything you want. Not only is their towing capacity incredible, but their payload rating blows every competitor out of the water. We are not just talking 50-100lbs, we are talking by about +/- 1,000lbs! That makes a MONUMENTAL difference when packing things around in the bed of your truck!
Wondering how Ford can haul so much more than the other guys? For years the truck industry has used steel in the production of the truck’s body. Ford’s cutting-edge design team has engineered a way to use high-strength, military-grade, aluminum-alloy for the complete body in their trucks. Not only does this new body have impressive strength, it is also significantly lighter allowing for the greater payload ability.
Additionally, this impressive aluminum-alloy is more dent resistant and isn’t subject to rust like the previously used steel body. Making it significantly more beneficial in creating a foundation of quality, strength, and reliability.
Not only will you get a greater amount of legroom and quality interior materials than other comparable trucks, Ford’s bed is also up to two inches bigger than its competitors. Those two inches can make all the difference in the world when trying to get that home improvement project done, or fit tools or toys in the back.
In addition to providing superior comfort, Ford equips their trucks with a wide-range of technologically advanced features that allow you to stay connected while on the go. Inside and out, the lineup of Ford trucks has plenty of high-tech infotainment, and towing features to keep you focused on the aspects of driving that matter most.
Ford offers a lengthy lineup of truck trim options, making it much easier than its competitors to find the truck that is just right for your needs. On top of an abundance of trims, Ford offers an incredible number of engine options. Whether you choose this year’s torque and horsepower class-leading new gas-powered V8, the Power Stroke® V8 Turbo Diesel, or any engine in between, Ford has the engine you need to get the job done.
Not only do Ford trucks have an overall lower MSRP than their competitors, they also offer more fuel-efficient engine options. They’re better built, and more affordable to boot!
To put the icing on the cake, safety has been and continues to be one of the foremost priorities for Ford. The number of standard and available safety features on Ford trucks surpasses most other competitors on the market.
Ford has been in the business of building trucks long enough to understand the need for a reliable truck that will last a lifetime doing everything you ask of it. If there was ever a truck manufacturer here to help build your dreams bigger than you could imagine, it is Ford. Their trucks are truly “Built Ford Tough”, are here for the long haul, and accessible at a more reasonable price than its competitors.
