Exterior design and improvements
2017 Ford F-150 will bring some great changes. It will get new frame, new powerful twin-turbo V6 engine and an upgraded suspension. This will be one of the toughest and most capable F-150 ever. It will be more agile, versatile, better to handle and more spacious than ever. New Ford is expected to be lighter for around 500 pounds because of the new frame made of high strength steel and aluminum body panels. So, it will show better general performance. It will also be wider for 6 inches than the current model which means that it will be more stable for off road drive. It will get a new driver-adjustable terrain management so it will be able to conquer any type of surface. Speaking of the exterior design, it will keep its powerful and macho look. However, it is going to be mildly refreshed. The front fascia will feature a large grille with well known Ford insignia in the middle. All, the lights will get quality LED lighting.
