2016 FORD F150
On the outside the 2016 Ford F-150 XL looks like previous Fords with a few changes. For 2016 the F-150 XL has a more pronounced blocky appearance and sits on stock 17-inch tires. However, the aluminum and aerodynamic body makes for a lean and lightweight vehicle for an automobile of its size.
The headlights are angled back from the grille to reduce wind resistance, grille flaps are in place to do the same, the hood is shaped to push air over the truck reducing drag, and the tailgate doubles as a spoiler along with having angled lights much like the front. The low beltline near the side mirrors offers a clearer view of the road.
