Modern Ford F-150s are Winter Tough and Super Smart

The Ford F-150 has been famous for decades as a work horse relied upon across industries to haul whatever the job requires. When you need dependable toughness on the coldest winter morning, the Ford F-150 has always been there.

But today’s models combine grit and power with the latest in contemporary technology to keep today’s drivers connected seamlessly and effortlessly. Read on to learn more about what makes the F-150s at Colony Ford Lincoln winter tough and super smart.

Military-Grade Steel Framing

The Ford F-150 offers a best-in-class payload rating because its steel frame is made of a high-strength, military-grade aluminum alloy body. Whether you’re on the job site or navigating downtown helping a friend move, the F-150 has the strength to do it all.

Of course, Colony Ford Lincoln has a huge range of Ford pickup trucks and F-150s, so you can get a truck that has whatever payload and towing capacity you need, without paying for more than you need.

For example, the F-150 Raptor is powered by a high-output 3.5L EcoBoost engine, good for 450 horsepower and no less than 510 pounds per for foot of torque. The FOX Live Valve monotube shocks with electronic solenoid valves allow for continuous variable compression damping and automatic adjustment to changing conditions — with its Terrain Management System and Terrain Control features, the F-150 Raptor can handle any off-road situation.

But if you’re using your truck in the city primarily to haul oversized items in that aren’t particularly heavy, you may not need this power and off-road capability. We have a large selection of F-150s, so you can select whatever model is most suitable.


The Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) in the new Ford F-150 will keep you and everybody on the road safer, even if you’re towing something large. The driver will see flashing lights and hear a beeping sound if there’s another vehicle in your blind spot, or even parallel to what you’re towing.

This way, you’ll be able to change lanes safely and with confidence on the highway, which is especially important when you’ve got a big load behind your truck.

Rear View Camera

The camera in back of the F-150 is a simple way that Ford makes everyday driving situations more comfortable and safer, as you won’t need to crane your neck to get a full view of whatever is behind your vehicle. Just make sure your camera is free of dirt or snow, and your sightline will be just as clear looking backwards as it looking forwards.

This feature is just one aspect of the Ford Co-Pilot360 Technology, a suite of advanced safety features which make your drive safer and more comfortable.

Stay Connected on the Go

FordPass Connect (optional on select F-150s) is an app you can download to get control of your vehicle without even being inside it. Check the fuel level, unlock/lock the truck, and even start the motor from your phone.

The truck itself can even become a Wi-Fi hotspot which can connect up to ten devices to fast internet at the same time, so passengers can keep entertained on long drives without having to worry about consuming their data.

With Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, drivers can get full use out of their smartphone with voice-recognition that makes keeping connected on the go easy and safe.
