New 2016 Ford F-450 at Ames Ford Lincoln for Ames, IA

When there is an important job to do, Ford’s 2016 F-450 lineup can take care of it. This five or six passenger full size heavy duty pickup comes in only a four door Crew Cab variant, boasting standard part time four wheel drive and standard dual rear wheels. A significant change hinted for the 2016 edition of this capable behemoth is the use of military grade aluminum alloy in certain body components, along with a high strength steel chassis. Use of these aluminum and upgraded steel parts was introduced for the 2015 F-150 line and has worked out well.

Under the F-450's Hood

Standard power for the 2016 F-450 is still courtesy of Ford's 6.7 liter turbo-diesel V-8 engine. With the traditional six speed shiftable automatic transmission also returning, look for the V-8 oil burner to put out 440 horsepower and an incredible 860 pound-feet of torque. Towing numbers are maxed out at 19,000 lbs with a conventional hitch, and 31,200 lbs using the available 5th-wheel setup. Mileage figures are not estimated by the EPA for trucks this size, but total payload is claimed by Ford to be 7,200 lbs. In addition to the standard 4WD system, each F-450 comes with a limited slip differential, while an electronically locking rear differential remains optional in the FX4 Off-Road package.

Design of Ford F-450

A locking tailgate, 19.5" alloy wheels, and step running boards are expected to again adorn the profile of each 2016 F-450, while inside, lower trims will keep sporting cloth or vinyl upholstery and bench seats, with higher trims adding niceties like standard leather upholstery, front bucket seats, and full power accessories. Telescoping tilt wheel steering is also standard across this brute’s 2016 trim level list, while cruise control and an integrated trailer brake controller come standard on higher trim levels. Manual air conditioning is again standard on the XL and the XLT, while the Lariat and higher levels boast dual zone automatic climate control, and a power sliding rear window.

Who owns Ford Motor Company?

Henry Ford and his family built the business from scratch and still own major shares of the company. The company is also owned by stockholders and investors.

Are there any brake sensors in the Ford F-450?

Yes, there would be a brake system sensor on that truck. If you look in your owners manual it should go over the "indicator lights" and that would confirm it for you. 

My brake and blinker lights are not working.

There could be a short in the trailer lights plug or wiring for it. Check your fuses and bulbs to see if they were just burnt out.


As for safety features, the 2016 F-450 lineup is expected to continue toting standard four wheel anti-lock brakes and traction control but, curiously, still sans stability control. Look for front side mounted airbags, as well as front and rear head airbags, to return for the upcoming year, as well as Ford’s SOS post collision alert technology.
