Review: 2016 Ford F-150

The 2016 Ford F-150 just arrived at George Waikem Ford with even more advanced technology. This year's model builds off the success of last year's redesign. We think it will be America's Best-Selling for a record 40th year. 
So What's New?
In 2015, the F-150 was completely rebuilt inside and out. It was highlighted by a new aluminum body, new technology and revolutionary engine choices. That all carries over in the 2016 Ford F-150, along with great new technology options. 
The Ford F-150 features a new Pro Trailer Backup Assist that makes backing up to a trailer or boat easier than ever. Identify where you're trying to hook the hitch, and by simply turning a knob left and right, you can easily hitch your truck to a trailer. Ford has been working on this new technology for more than a decade and they hold more than 15 patents on this technology. 
It's much cooler than we've described above. Come in and play around with it yourself to see how great this technology really is. 
The 2016 Ford F-150 also features a new Special Edition XLT and Lariat Package. This includes 20-inch dark-painted alloy wheels, black running boards, smoked headlamps, red and black interior seats, blacked out grille and red inserts. 
The new F-150 also features Ford's new SYNC 3, the best way to connect your phone to your truck. This all-new SYNC features the best voice recognition of all time. The touch screen buttons are bigger and more responsive, and the screen is laid out logically so you can quickly and easily get where you need to be. 
Ford SYNC includes integration with the top Smartphone apps as well, including Pandora, Spotify, iHeartRadio, MLB at Bat, and even the Dominoes app -- order lunch from the driver's seat!
Ford SYNC lets you make hands-free calls and dictate text messages through voice recognition, controls your navigation and even has point of interest logic. That means your F-150 will guide you right to the nearest ATM, bakery, gas station, Ford Dealership, Mexican restaurant or wherever you need to get. 
The 2016 Ford F-150 also offers both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for even more advanced Smartphone capabilities. 
The Ford F-150 offers two new color choices as well -- Shadow Black and Lithium Gray. 
Aluminum Body
The Ford F-150 is highlighted by its all-aluminum body. High strength, military grade aluminum reduced the Ford F-150's body weight by more than 700 pounds, leading to improved fuel economy and best in class towing and payload. 
The Ford F-150 can tow up to 12,200 pounds and carry more than a half ton on its back. 
Thanks to the aluminum body, the F-150 will never rust and it will always look great.
