Pickup trucks have long been a symbol of all things American. They are just as much a patriotic symbol as the US flag, bald eagle, or apple pie. If you’re looking for a new vehicle not only capable of hauling heavy loads but is also a relic of longstanding American values, then look no further than a Ford truck and more specifically the brand’s signature F-150 series.

The Ford F-150 series is America’s greatest selling vehicle as well as a top seller in Canada. The series is currently in its 13th incarnation (the first generation originating in 1948) and has many new features and specs for the 2015 model lineup.

For starters, the F-150 series is extremely durable; its surface is made from military grade, aluminum alloys and 70,000-psi high-strength steel. Despite the high-durable materials, the vehicle is about 700 pounds lighter than its predecessors, thus giving it improved fuel economy (19 city/26 hwy), braking response, and faster acceleration. In addition, it was also given a 5-star overall safety rating by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

If you need a truck for hauling, then the Ford F-150 series is your go-to pickup truck. The dashboard is fitted with a productivity screen for monitoring towing information and a Smart Trailer Tow Connector that alerts you when the battery, marker lamps, or brake light is burned out. The addition of a standard trailer sway control feature also ensures that an attached trailer is on a stable course at all times.

Our Ford trucks have been a main staple of American pickups since 1948. If you would like to own a classic American automobile renowned for its rugged and heavy-duty reputation, then contact Folsom Lake Ford near Roseville to check out the current model lineup.
