Ford is doing something revolutionary with the 2015 Ford F150. The new truck will no longer be made of steel and will instead be constructed out of aluminum. Many F150 buyers are skeptical about this change, but we can assure you, it’s for the better.
Many customers have worried that using aluminum over steel will interfere with the toughness of the truck. Customers from Utah to Florida have trusted the F150 to get them through even the toughest situations, and many do not want to see this change.
The aluminum used to construct the truck is made from a high-strength, military-grade aluminum alloy body and still allows for the same toughness as the previous steel model, while also adding many benefits that weren’t previously included.
Steel is a heavy-duty metal and has been what many customers from Utah to New York have trusted to make their F150 “Ford Tough.” But using this metal for the truck’s body also adds a large amount of weight to the vehicle. Constructing the truck with aluminum instead reduces the weight of the truck by 700 pounds.
A lighter truck means better fuel economy. Gas prices these days are ever increasing. Consumers are always looking for ways to save money at the gas pump. The new F150’s lighter body will help reduce the amount of gas the car uses, saving money for customers.
Here at Henry Day Ford, we strive everyday to make sure our customers walk away happy and satisfied. The 2015 Ford F150 is sure to not disappoint.
