Whenever we hear the word "tough" a Ford F-150 is always the first thing that pops in our minds. No matter what your definition of tough is, the Ford F-150 surely fits it. In fact, we should probably get on the phone with those Webster's Dictionary people to have a photo of the 2018 F-150 added next to the word. While it's true that the 2018 F-150 is made with aluminum, it's not your mother's aluminum foil, or your father's aluminum cans. The 2018 F-150 is made with military-grade high-strength aluminum alloy to provide a lighter, and stronger body.
Because the 2018 F-150 weighs less than older generations of F-150 trucks, provides a greater power-to-weight ratio, better efficiency, and a higher max payload and tow rating. Speaking of payload, by hardening the aluminum alloy with high heat, the engineers at Ford have created a bed that is capable of withstanding extreme weight without buckling or folding. The aluminum-alloy bed also provides a higher resistance to dents and corrosion, meaning your truck will retain its strength and durability for far longer than other trucks on the market. Before we go on about the 2018 F-150, let's take a look at how it compares with the 2018 Toyota Tundra.

|395||Horsepower @ 5000 RPM||381|

As you can see, the 2018 F-150 and the 2018 Tundra are two very comparable trucks. There's just a handful of areas where the 2018 Tundra wasn't able to stack up against the 2018 F-150, but don't get us wrong. We think the 2018 Tundra is a great truck in its own right.
