2016  F-150 vs. the Competition on Performance
The 2016 F-150 stacks up well against the competition in areas of critical importance to truck buyers - horsepower, torque, fuel economy and payload. It's clear that F-150 is the truck to beat. 

2016  F-150 vs. the Competition on Power-to-Weight Advantages

While most customers are familiar with using horsepower, torque, towing and payload ratings to compare trucks, it's important to help them understand that the power-to-weight ratio is a smarter measure of performance. Simply dividing engine horsepower or torque by vehicle weight tells you how much torque you have for every pound of vehicle weight. When you reduce weight - as F-150 has done - you improve this ratio, contributing to better acceleration, handling, towing, maneuverability and braking. As you can see below, F-150 has an advantage in every cab configuration. Be sure to share this information with your customers.
