Muddy Monday: 2016 Ford F-150 Gets Down & Dirty
Mudding Clip Shows How Easily Ford Half-Ton Pushes Through Slop
This week’s “Muddy Monday” video features a new Ford F-150 kicking up some dirt and powering through deep, muddy water.
There are no details on the 2016 truck, but through the odd musical soundtrack, this truck sounds like it is powered by the 5.0L V8. We can also see that it has some big BF Goodrich Mud Terrain A/T tires on a set of black aftermarket wheels. It also looks like this F-150 sits a bit higher than your average F-150 XLT 4×4. So, we would guess that this truck has some suspension bits which are a bit heavier duty than the stock components.
In any case, the video below shows this new Ford F-150 tackling a variety of off-road driving conditions. This includes a dirt road; a large, muddy field; and a watery mud hole. Of course, the F-150 fitted with mud tires makes short work of the dirt paths. And when the driver takes to doing some donuts in the muddy field – slop slinging high in the air as the back end whips around over and over – the new Ford pickup hardly breaks a sweat.
The biggest challenge for this 2016 Ford F-150 comes via the watery mud hole. The driver hits it straight through the center at lower speeds. Then, he starts charging through the mud a few more times at higher speeds. In addition to the musical soundtrack, which we could do without, this clip includes some slow-motion footage. There is also a close-up look at the bottom of the bedsides behind the tires. It offers us a great look at the mud dripping out from under America’s most popular pickup.
Because of the music, you don’t need to have the sound turned up for this 2016 F-150 mudding video. But with very little footage of the newest F-150 getting dirty, this clip shows that the aluminum trucks aren’t afraid of a little mud.
