The first and the most important information is, that this off-road truck goes on sale in the fall of 2016 in the USA. This Ford will have aluminium body, so it will be lighter than the previous generation, which is good.

Wich is not very good, is, that it won’t have a V8 engine like the current generation has. Under the hood of the new generation will be a new 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine which will be of course more powerful than the old 411-horsepower V8. This new generation also has a new 10-speed automatic gearbox with paddle shifters. It will also have new suspension, interior and all this stuff.
