Why the 2016 F-150 is a perfect work truck for Oregon

2016 Ford F-150 now available at Gresham Ford
The F-150 is a revolutionary work truck that has permeated Oregon.  This truck was designed and purpose built from the ground up to be reliable and durable whether you are transporting your Christmas tree on yards of rock.  The all new 2016 half ton truck delivers an impressive combination of efficiency and power.  This light duty truck is the smartest Ford has produced yet.  

The high-strength military grade aluminum alloy body has reduced the vehicle weight helping with MPG as well as providing additional strength.  This is just one example of why the Ford F-150 is still Built Tough.  In fact the F-150 is the first truck in its class to have an aluminum body and bed.  

The new 2016 F-150 has six trim options available at Gresham Ford including: XL, XLT, Lariat, King Ranch, Platinum and the all new Limited.  The F-150 is the best selling truck again and maybe it's because of all it's first in class available options like the 8" productivity screen in the instrument cluster and the 360 degree camera with split view display so that you can see everything behind your truck before you travel in reverse.  The active park assist is very helpful when parking in the city.  This tool helps you parallel park with ease.  The Pro Trailer park assist also helps when backing a trailer.  Once you have access to these new technologies you will never know how you got along with out them.

The F-150 now is offering four engine choices with enhanced performance from previous years.  The Auto Start-Stop feature is designed to help actively manage fuel consumption and help you get the most out of your truck.  The new 2.7L EcoBoost engine has a compacted graphite iron (CGI)/aluminum block saves weight while providing strength and is the same material used in the Ford 6.7L Power Stroke V8 turbo diesel engine. Ford chose aluminum cylinder heads that are water-cooled and integrated with the exhaust manifolds.  
2016 F-150 has the most towing 12,200lbs


The F-150 was made for Towing and provides drivers with trailer connection status, lighting and trailer battery alerts/warnings.  The alerts/warnings are displayed in the message center or either the 4.2" or 8" productivity screen (if equipped) and is included in all towing packages.  The Pro Trailer Assist provides added driver convenience and awareness when backing a hitched conventional trailer by allowing the driver to “steer the trailer” instead of steering the truck.
