You’ve heard all about it: the New 2015 Ford F-150, and Borgman Ford is proud to be a distributor of America’s Favorite Pick-Up. Shedding over 700 pounds since last year’s model, the all new F-150 was made famous for employing a military grade aluminum alloy body atop a high-strength steel frame, giving it incredible, lasting durability and a vastly superior power-to-weight ratio. The 2015 model can tow up to 12,200 lbs., or carry a 3,300 lb. payload, making it the strongest pickup in its class. With 4 engine options to choose from, the peppy and efficient 2.7L EcoBoost to the powerful 5.0L V8, this truck is equipped to handle any job you throw at it, all the while picking up awards for efficiency, safety, and payload capacity.
But how well would it hold up on a gigantic and punishing obstacle course? John Breknus, creator and host of Sport Science on ESPN, puts the F-150 to the test on the official FordTrucks YouTube channel. In a series called Tough Science, a truck-sized obstacle course was designed and built to reflect what a top NFL running back would see during training and testing. Watch the video below to see how the F-150 performs through rigorous trials like a stretch of half-buried logs, a huge mud puddle, and even a full-size wrecking ball.
