The 2015 Ford F-150 takes on Top Athletes Pummeling it with Projectiles


Top athletes deliver punishing slap shots, fastballs and more into our truck beds. Which holds up best? Last year’s steel, or the new aluminum alloy?


From John Brenkus, host and creator of ESPN Sport Science comes Tough Science, a series in which he and his crew take a closer look at the science behind the 2015 F-150 through a variety of tests. 

In this episode, we see how the 2015 F-150, with its 2.7L EcoBoost engine and weight reduction of up to 700 pounds (made possible by the high-strength, military-grade, aluminum alloy body), can handle what our team can throw at it – literally.

We’ll test the strength and durability of the new aluminum bed vs. last year’s steel bed with the help of top athletes. They’ll be launching projectiles from their respective sports into both beds. We’re talking - Baseballs, golf balls, hockey pucks and shot puts. These athletes hold nothing back as they unleash on both beds.

How do they do? Is it possible to make the best selling truck on the market, even better?
