2016 Ford F-150 vs 2015 Ford F-150
While it can at times be difficult to improve things that are already excellent, Ford has stepped up to the challenge with the 2016 Ford F-150. The introduction of super-light and extra-strong aluminum paneling in 2015 completely upped the ante on this truck and gave it even better towing, hauling, handling, and fuel economy. It might have been hard to imagine Ford making that better anytime soon, but they managed it. In this 2016 Ford F-150 vs 2015 Ford F-150 comparision, we will check out the tweaks in technology, features, and capability that have made the 2016 F-150 even better than its ground-breaking predecessor.
First off, the 2016 Ford F-150 is available with even more fuel options. While the 2015 truck was only available with gas-burning engines, the new model will be available with a compressed natural gas or propane conversion option on the available 5.0-liter V8 engine. This Gaseous-Fuel Prep Package can save truck owners money on fuel, and deliver up to 18 mpg for combined city and highway driving. This system can also allow the 2016 Ford F-150 to burn greener and preserve the environment. Another capability advantage is the new available Pro Trailer Backup Assist feature, which allows drivers to make tiny, precise adjustments to their trailer direction with the touch of a dial.
Fuel and trim options on the 2016 Ford F-150
These fuel and trailering options are not the only advances we see when comparing the 2016 Ford F-150 vs 2015 Ford F-150. A new infotainment system with an eight-inch touchscreen is available that delivers even more responsiveness. The SYNC 3 infotainment system offers several operating upgrades compared to the 2016 Ford F-150's SYNC and MyFord Touch system, and includes a more streamlined bottom menu and allows pinch-and-swipe gestures like used on a smartphone touchscreen. Another driver information screen set in the dash also allows 2016 Ford F-150 drivers even more immediate information on vehicle health and performance.
The new model year also offers the new elite Limited trim, in addition to the previously offered XL, XLT, Lariat, King Ranch, and Platinum models. While the western-themed King Ranch and elegant Platinum trims delivered on impressive capability on the 2015 Ford F-150, the top-of-the-line Limited now offers even more features and options.
