When the 2015 Ford F150 Succeeds, More Trucks Will Use Aluminum Very Soon
Metal alloys have come a very long way in the past decade so it really shouldn’t have been made such a negative key point for those critics of the 2015 Ford F150. Some people are concerned that the aluminum will be too soft to put up with the abuse faced by a proper pickup truck, but the F150 is unquestionably Ford Motor Company’s most important vehicle. Would they really build an F150 for 2015 that isnt going to stand up to normal truck use? The answer to that question is a resounding “no”.
Anyone who thinks that the next generation Ford F150 isn't going to sell and perform every bit as well as the current models should probably get their heads checked by a professional.
Aluminum Makes the Next F150 Even Better
The 2015 Ford F150 will almost surely offer significant improvements in every single measurement and because of that, we will see the sales numbers of America’s bestselling vehicle continue to shine into the 13th generation. The 2015 Ford F150 will be lighter, so it will offer better fuel economy and even if the engine lineup is identical, this lightweight body will improve performance and capabilities like hauling and towing.
The only concern of sorts is that the aluminum panels might be more likely to sustain little dents and dings – which Ford insists will not be the case. In this situation, I am inclined to believe the Motor Company because body panels on the world’s bestselling pickup that easily dent would obviously create a huge black eye for Ford…and that isn’t going to happen.
