When we invited drivers to put the new 2015 Ford F-150 to the test, John Swanson from Portland, Oregon, stepped forward. John cracks and stacks stones for a living. He also hauls serious loads – more than he believed the new truck could handle. We were ready to prove him wrong.

Determined to give the F-150’s re-engineered aluminum alloy pickup bed an unapologetic beating, John set out to transport four months of quarry runs in a single day. The stones he excavates are extremely sharp and heavy, each individual rock weighing anywhere from 50 to 500 lbs.

Was the truck Built Ford Tough enough to handle John’s challenge? Watch the video.

At the end of a brutal day, the tailgate was still sitting pretty and not a single puncture was found in the bed despite the fact the truck had carried 50 tons of sharp rock. Did we mention excavators were used to both load and unload the truck? Still, not a hole to be found, thanks to the military-grade aluminum alloy bed designed to withstand whatever abuse you care to throw at it.

Truck drivers seeking durability won’t believe how tough the 2015 F-150 is. What do you think?
