Mountains, potholes, rainstorms, bears – and a entirely installed 2015 Ford F-150

Is there a plea a new 2015 Ford F-150 isn’t built for? Canadian Lorne Brown was flattering certain there was when he due pushing a truck, entirely loaded, from Fairbanks, Alaska, to his home in Inuvik, Northwest Territories.

Once a year, each year, Lorne creates a 2,145 km roundtrip opposite a Arctic Circle to batch adult on reserve not straightforwardly accessible in Inuvik – from sacks of cereal to stacks of lumber and cement. Resembling a small, gravelly nation highway rather than a vital highway, a thoroughfare is treacherous. With no ensure rails separating drivers from critical drops, it’s not for a gloomy of heart. Lorne’s doubt was: Is it for a new F-150? Watch a video to find out.

The 2015 F-150 has a sum total weight rating of 16,900 lbs. Loading adult a box bed as good as a trailer, Lorne put a truck’s cessation to a exam as he done his approach opposite 4 towering ranges, navigating mud, dust, potholes, rainstorms and more.

Powered by a new F-150’s 3.5 litre V6 EcoBoost engine (versus his possess devoted V8), Lorne wasn’t confident during a outset. By a end, however, he was really impressed. The turf and a bucket incited out to be a travel in a park for this turbo engine, proof a lorry is loyal to a Built Ford Tough promise.
