2015 F-150 has Uncompromising Durability

Ford designers and engineers are committed to continuing the F-150 legacy of quality, reliability
and durability. For 2015, the F-150 not only fulfills that promise of being Built Ford Tough®, we’re taking it
to a whole new level. How? With an all-new high-strength steel frame and high-strength military-grade
aluminum alloy body.  Yes, you heard that right. Aluminum AND steel … combining the best of both materials for the toughness - that only Ford can deliver.  Gresham Ford is excited about bringing the best selling truck for over 37 years to the Portland Metro area.
2015 Aluminum F150 from Gresham Ford

The all new F150 offers a new high strength steel frame but bringing the performance of an aluminum body.  In designing the backbone of the 2015 F-150, Ford engineers accounted for every detail in building strength and removing weight. Why is that a big deal? Here’s why - The more high-strength steel than the previous model has been designed to be the strongest F-150 frame ever.  Even more than previous years this Ford work truck has even more impressive ground clearance while the frame is constructed using high-strength steel and fully boxed with through-welded crossmembers.

The all new snazzy Military Grade Aluminum Alloy Body is sure to impress with fuel economy due to the lighter weight.  It's easy to see why the F150 has been the best selling work truck in Gresham and surrounding Portland for over 37 years.  Ford engineers have utilized military-grade aluminum alloy in a full-size pickup truck because it makes this already great work truck even better.  This is the stuff fighter jets are made of — it stands up to the most extreme conditions and demanding situations this planet can dish
out. The advanced high-strength military-grade aluminum alloy is specially heat-treated and gauged to take all the abuse that a work truck must endure.  The aluminum is extremely strong for its weight. It’s strong enough to resist dents, dings and rust.  Weight is important for fuel economy among other things and coupled with the Eco-Boost engine is sure to impress with increased towing and payload capacities as well.

Ford has BUILT TOUGH and test the new 2015 F150 TOUGH.  The 2015 F-150 frame and body
have been designed and will be tested for over 10 million miles to surpass the legendary Built Ford Tough standards for durability, strength and quality.

When it comes to truck engines, there’s no room for “one size fits all.” That’s why the all-new F-150 offers choice, so owners can build their truck with the engine that’s just right for the job.  For 2015, the F-150 adds two all-new engines to the lineup, helping to continue the impressive F-150 powertrain story. The
F-150 engine lineup includes:

• New 3.5L V6 Ti-VCT
• New 2.7L EcoBoost® V6 with Auto Start-Stop technology

• 3.5L EcoBoost V6
• 5.0L V8 FFV

Ford Work Truck POWER + EFFICIENCY is brought to you by Gresham Ford Fleet.  The 2015 F-150 builds on the proven reputation of the 3.5L EcoBoost V6 engine, introducing a second EcoBoost engine into the truck lineup — the 2.7L EcoBoost V6. The engine block of the 2.7L EcoBoost consists of compacted graphic iron, the same material used in the proven engine block of the 6.7L Power Stroke® V8 turbo diesel. Like the 3.5L EcoBoost, the 2.7L is tuned specifically for truck applications — and features a lightweight compact design — to deliver an impressive combination of power, capability and efficiency.
