Top Ten Reasons the Ford F-150 is #1 Selling Truck

10.  High-Strength, Military-Grade, Aluminum-Alloy Body
 Ford’s objective was to reduce weight and increase strength. The F-150 is the only truck in its class* that has this combination; making it up to 700 lbs. lighter than the previous model. Lighter and stronger!
(* Class is Full-Size pickups under 8,500 lbs. GVWR.)

9.  12,200-LB. Max Tow Rating*
When properly equipped with available 3.5L EcoBoost V6, 4x2. That’s over six tons!
(*Class is Full-Size pickups under 8,500 lbs. GVWR.)

8.  The Best-in-Class Payload*
Equipped with the 5.0L V8, 4x2, it can carry 3,270 lbs. and the 2.7L EcoBoost V6 can haul up to 2,210 lbs. That’s more than every other full-size pickup in its class!
(* Class is Full-Size pickups under 8,500 lbs. GVWR.)

7.  Highest Gas Mileage
            In the 2.7L EcoBoost V6 4x2, an EPA-estimated rating of 19 city/
            26 hwy/22 combined mpg
(* Actual gas mileage may vary.)

6.  The Safest F-150
The 2016 F-150 is the only truck to earn a NHTSA 5-Star safety rating and IIHS Top Safety Pick on the SuperCab and SuperCrew models equipped with optional Forward Collision Warning. Also, the F-150 received a 5-Star rating from the NHTSA* on every side, for every cab configuration. Safe to say, they aced those tests!!
(*Government 5-Star Safety Ratings are part of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA’s) New Car Assessment Program ( Tests include driver and passenger front, side and barrier and pole tests.)

5.  No Body Rust on the Aluminum Panels
Military-grade aluminum. They put this truck through some extensive testing! Watch the video here,

4.  Available Pro Trailer Backup Assist
The F-150 is the first pickup truck to offer this feature. With just a simple turn of a knob you can make the trailer go where you need it. They really thought of it all!

Need An All-Terrain Work Truck?

When it comes to trucks, there are a wide range of options available on the market. When it comes to work trucks, sometimes what you need isn’t exactly mass-produced. You may need a truck to haul heavy equipment over rugged and hilly terrain, navigate steep slopes of sand or power across snow covered hills in remote areas. Now I know they make little utility vehicles with a wide range of capabilities, but what about the tool storage? The ability to customize your work truck to suit your needs is what Fleetwest is all about.

The beauty of a Fleetwest transferable utility body is that first, you pick out the truck that you need or use and existing truck for the terrain you work in; then you pick out the utility body needed for your tools and equipment. And it doesn’t end there! Then, you have an array of options to customize your work truck to optimize your productivity and workflow. From custom shelving options to low profile ladder racks, slides, drawers, dividers...the list goes on and on!

The Durashell by Fleetwest is one example of our innovative solutions to your work truck needs.  They are ergonomically engineered and designed to reduce your operational costs while improving your productivity. The Durashell are rugged and lightweight and built to last many truck cycles. They universally fit most full-sized trucks with 8’ and 6.5’ truck beds and are 100% transferable without any drilling or modifications to the truck bed.
