Earlier today, Ford Motor Co. ( F ) launched the new version of the Ford F-150, which is advertised to possess enhanced power, capability, efficiency and durability.

The new Ford F-150 will be manufactured at Ford's Dearborn Truck Plant in Dearborn, Michigan, and Kansas City Assembly Plant in Claycomo, Missouri. It will hit the market in the later part of this year and will offer five primary trims, including XL, XLT, Lariat, Platinum and King Ranch.

Ford has paid special attention to both the interior and exterior of the vehicle while designing the new F-150. The exterior is wider and features prominent wheel arches and chiseled grille. The seating is designed ergonomically to prioritize comfort and space. Additionally, there is availability of storage options for different purposes.

The new Ford F-150 is a result of the One Ford plan, which focuses on producing vehicles that ensure quality, fuel efficiency, safety, smart design and value to customers. With this new truck Ford maintains its superior standard.

The F-150 truck is made with high-strength aluminum alloys used in aerospace, commercial transportation, energy and many other rugged industries. This metal improves the dent and dings resistance of the vehicle and also reduces the weight by 700 pounds. The light weight leads to improved speed and fuel efficiency. The use of aluminum alloys is a revolutionary change as steel is widely used in the industry.

Ford's F-Series has produced the best-selling trucks in the U.S. for 37 years. The truck line has also been America's best-selling vehicle for the last 32 years.

Ford is one of the largest automobile producers in the world along with General Motors GM ), Toyota Motor Corp. ( TM ) and Honda Motor Co., Ltd. ( HMC ). Currently, Ford has a Zacks Rank #5 (Strong Sell).
