2015 Ford F150 pickup truck

When the 2015 Ford F150 Succeeds, More Trucks Will Use Aluminum Very Soon

Ford Motor Company kind of shocked the world when they introduced the new 2015 Ford F150 pickup with a body that is comprised heavily of aluminum rather than steel and when (not if) the newest F150 succeeds – we will quickly see the competition follow suit as the other truck makers scramble to keep up with the bestselling truck in the world.

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.

I think you mean to say "will keep current Ford truck owners coming back for more" and not "cutting Ford truck buyers". :)
The aluminum sceptics should be reminded that one of the safest vehicle called ''Airplane'' has been constructed with aluminum alloys for decades. I think that says it all about the material. Also, aluminum has a much easier recycling process than steel. Cheaper to transport because of its weight and has a far greater resistance to corrosion than steel.
When will Ford Expedition have new 2015 F150 benefits?
People will buy anything that looks good, but just wait a few years. By the 20's, all the used steel cars and trucks will be as highly sought after as ammo was in '13. If I want a beer can, I'll go to Publix.You can get a low mileage used one for barely half the cost of a new one and, the engine is larger and not aluminum, nor is the body. But its not at all the industry or the company's fault. Obama's EPA is ruining every car and truck on the road and risking our lives with their fascist CAFE standards, and all you people in the media are sucking up to them (as usual). Aluminum is weaker than steel and cracks, and there is no permanent cure for the galvanics. And just wait for the insurance bill.
