2015 Ford F-150 will use Aluminum Extensively

Wednesday, June 12th 2013. | 2015 Ford F-150, News

The internet has been alight with speculation as to whether or not the 2015 F-150 would make use of aluminum or even be all-aluminum. The most we’ve heard, to my knowledge, from Ford is that the next generation of F-150 will include a significant weight savings, I’ve heard numbers as high as 700 pounds. Thanks to recent spy photo’s we can confirm that the wheel well of a 2015 F-150 Test vehicle is made of aluminum, this suggests that likely the whole truck-bed is made of aluminum. With that being the case, I would be pretty comfortable predicting that significant portions of the cab, or maybe even the whole cab will be made of aluminum. This leaves the frame, what will it be made of? High Strength, lighter weight Steel? Or even Aluminum as well? We anxiously await further developments for the 2015 F-150!
