It's no secret that the New Ford F-150 is one of the most advanced pickup trucks on the road. The reasons for this are many, such as the over 100 patents that make it the smartest F-150 ever, unmatched towing and payload capacity in its class, and 5 stars across the board in government safety ratings.

For the Top Ten list of reasons why the F-150 leaves its competitors in the dust, either watch the video above or read on below:

1. High-Strength, Military-Grade Aluminum Alloy Body
This high-tech skin for the New F-150 makes the truck up to 700 pounds lighter than the previous generation. The aluminum alloy body panels are dent and ding resistant, ready to take on the wear and tear of a hard day's work.

2. Most Towing Capacity
No other truck in its class can touch the New F-150's maximum towing capacity of 12,200 pounds. That's six tons and some change, or four Ford Focus sedans.

3. Best Payload Capacity
This truck can carry up to 3,270 pounds on its back.

4. Highest Gas Mileage
The EPA gave the New Ford F-150 a rating of 22 combined miles per gallon of fuel. That's about what a large sedan uses. Except those don't tow over 12,000 pounds.

5. 5-Star Safety Rating
5-Star overall crash test rating from the NHTSA, thanks to 31 safety-related innovations. Every side, every cab configuration, Ford's got your back.

6. No Body Rust
Aluminum doesn't rust. Ever. Not even in Michigan.

7. Available Pro Trailer Backup Assist
Pro Trailer Backup Assist makes backing up a trailer as easy as turning a knob, and an advanced rear view camera alerts you to obstacles in your path. The F-150 is the first pickup truck to offer this breakthrough feature.

8. 10 Million Miles of Testing
This is the most rigorously-tested F-150 ever. Go ahead and see what it'll put up with.

9. Over 100 Patents
This truck has become a benchmark in Ford Tough technology, all so you can work smarter.

10. Best-selling brand of trucks 40 years and counting
People have chosen Ford Trucks over all the rest since 1977.
