Wesley Chapel Customers Find the New 2018 F-150 to be Fun and Functional

This isn’t aluminum in the household sense, because this heat-treated and hardened aluminum alloy is the same high-grade 6000-series used in big military and industrial applications. Beneath the aluminum-alloy body of the new 2018 Ford F-150 you’ll find a fully boxed frame that is made of up to 78 percent high-strength steel! That’s truck toughness you can depend on, whether you’re taking on everyday tasks on the job site or the scenic outdoors of sunny south Florida.
