From its intuitive Ford SYNC® 3 infotainment system to its intuitive Pro-Trailer Backup Assist technology, there's a lot of innovation on display with the new Ford F-150. However, some of its most impressive innovations aren't quite apparent to the naked eye, most significantly its high-strength, military-grade aluminum alloy body. This is easily one of the Ford F-150's most underappreciated features, but it's got some big benefits to it, and we'd love to show you why that is here at Landmark Ford Trucks East.

Now, you may think that aluminum is just for wrapping your lunch, and not for building the body of your pickup truck, but the Ford F-150 is poised to prove you wrong.

You see, by using a aluminum alloy body rather than a conventional steel body, the Ford F-150 saves on weight without sacrificing capability. This makes the Ford F-150 much more agile and efficient than many of its pickup truck rivals on the market today near Chatham and Auburn, IL.

Of course, agility and efficiency are a few significant benefits, but perhaps the biggest benefit to choosing aluminum over steel for the Ford F-150 is how it fares when it comes to long-term maintenance. You see, steel-bodied trucks are prone to rust over time, but with an aluminum alloy body, there's no rust to speak of. So, you can take your Ford F-150 out on the road or on the trails near Riverton and Sherman, IL, and through rain, sleet, hard work, and challenging conditions, you'll never have to worry about body rust putting a single blemish on your vehicle.

Like we said, you may not see the difference the high-strength, military-grade aluminum alloy body makes on the outside of the Ford F-150, but you'll feel and experience the difference it makes one you spend some time behind the wheel. So, if you're interested in learning more about all the innovation Ford has packed into the new F-150, stop by our Springfield, IL dealership to take a test drive today.
