2017 Ford F-150: number one for a lot of reasons
December 30 2016,
The Ford F-150 is Canada’s best-selling vehicle. That alone is a testament to the quality of Ford’s prized pickup truck, but that doesn’t mean that the American automaker is sitting back on its laurels and not continually improving the F-150.
When it redesigned the F-Series recently, Ford made a bold move by increasing the use of aluminum in order to make its pickup safer, more capable, and more efficient. That move was seen as risky by many, but F-150 sales have not slowed down, and Ford’s pickup is better than ever.
