One of the biggest changes that you can expect in the new 2016 Ford f-150 STX is that it’s going to feature an aluminum body to replace the steel-bodied 2014 model. This novelty is expected to reduce the weight of the vehicle by around 700 pounds, which will increase it performance and reduce fuel consumption.

The exterior looks a lot like the Atlas, with big headlights and a huge grille on the front. The headlights and tail lights will consist of LED lamps. You can expect to find a lot of chrome detail on the F-150, and its truck bed and body panels will be made of light-weight aluminum, but its ladder frame will be made of steel.

You can expect modern gadgetry in the F-150, including an infotainment section with a touchscreen. The display center will provide the driver with information, including warning messages and text functions. A stereo AM/FM radio with a DVD player and clock is a standard feature. For climate control, manual air conditioning will be available.

The engine of the 2015 Ford F-150 STX will feature a 3.5-liter V6 which will generate 302 horsepower with a 278 lb-ft torque. The 5.0-liter V8 engine features 360 horsepower with 380 lb-ft torque, like the previous model. It will also have a 6-speed automatic transmission, but there is talk of releasing an 8-speed and a 10-speed shift automatic gearbox.

One of the most impressive innovations in this truck is the reverse sensing system. It’s an audible signal that alerts the driver to an obstacle up to six feet behind the vehicle when slowly backing up. The closer your truck gets to an object, the louder and more frequent the alert sound. The vehicle will also come with a rear view camera to assist you when you’re slowly backing up. It’s mounted on the tailgate, and provides you with real-time visual images in your rearview mirror.
