How Much Does a Ford F-150 Weigh?

The Ford F-150 is America's favorite pickup truck. As one of the most heavy-duty pickup trucks on the market, the Ford F-150 weighs a whopping 6,100 to 7,050 pounds. 

You may not realize it, but the Ford F-150 went through a major remodel for 2018 and shed some significant weight from its previous version. As a result, the 2018 F-150 is lighter, but remains tougher than ever. 

At Krause Family Ford, we make it our goal to keep our customers informed throughout every stage of the buying process. Take a look at the newly designed F-150 to see how it's stronger than ever with less weight.


Built Ford Tough: More Strength, Less Weight

The all-new 2018 Ford F-150 shed some weight over its previous generation thanks to high-strength, military-grade, aluminum alloy. In fact, the F-150 is up to 700 lbs. lighter than the 2017 version. Ford chose a heat treated and hardened aluminum alloy -- the same high-grade 6000-series, which is used in military and industrial applications. It is part of the reason Ford built the F-150 "Ford tough." Underneath the aluminum alloy body is a fully boxed frame made of up to 78 percent high-strength steel. This frame is also 60 lbs. lighter.

Benefits of the Military-Grade Aluminum Alloy in the Ford F-150

When Ford redesigned the F-150, it chose aluminum alloy because of its numerous benefits:
  • Aluminum alloy provides greater strength
  • Engineers are able to increase gauge, or thickness, with the aluminum alloy where needed to achieve extra strength without increasing weight.
  • Doesn't weigh as much as previous generations, resulting in greater power-to-weight ratio
  • Enhanced fuel efficiency
  • Higher maximum payload and tow ratings
  • Resistance to dents and corrosion
