You Test

The F-150 badge isn't just given. It has to be earned. Ford engineers put the new 2015 F-150 through a series of rigorous tests to prove it lives up to the Built Ford Tough® legacy, and over 13,000 people told us how they’d put it through its paces. Now it's time to see if it can survive where it matters most—out in the real world.
