There have been 25 consumer complaints that include claims of "a sudden and complete loss of brakes," the agency said. The vehicles affected are the 2015 and 2016 model year F-150s that have 3.5-liter engines.

The F-150 is the best-selling vehicle in North America. No injuries or accidents have been reported, the NHTSA said.

The investigation was one of three opened last Wednesday for Ford vehicles. Separate investigations into 2011-2013 model year Edge SUVs and 2010 Fusion sedans were posted on the NHTSA website on Monday.
