January 14 , 2014
Ford pickups have been tough for 66 years and their strength, made with steel has managed to plow snow and clear tomato debris. However, the company recently revealed that the the new model of 2015 will almost entirely be made of aluminum.
This will mark a revolutionary change for the vehicle, which comes in response to the desire of making the truck more fuel efficient.
Reports suggest that the new F-150 will contain 97 percent of aluminum and it's a huge gamble for Ford. Moreover, the vehicle will stay within the current price range, even though aluminum is more expensive than steel.
