2016 Ford f-150 XL

The excitement is building as we come closer to the release of the 2016 Ford F-150 XL. The body of the new Ford will have the all-new aluminum body, causing it to lose almost 700 pounds over its predecessor. The loss in body weight will not only help increase the fuel mileage of the standard 3.5 Eco-Boost engine, but it will also help to increase performance. Although Ford has not officially released information concerning all of the engine models that will be available in the new F-150, but it is fair to assume that all of the combinations offered in the 2015 F-150 will be available. There will not be a diesel engine available in the 2016 model.

The engine will be coupled to a 10 speed automatic transmission designed to improve fuel economy while boosting performance. Fuel mileage should be around the 17/23 (City/Highway) mark.

The exterior will feature the new large black and chrome grill along with the smooth contour lines that define the truck as a Ford. The all-new aluminum body will also feature stronger tailgates, hoods, and roof areas at the request of current Ford customers. It also has improved aerodynamics, added LED lights all around the truck, and installed new pop out steps to accommodate entering and exiting the truck more comfortably.
