It Has People Talking

A lot of people talk about F-150’s military grade aluminum alloy body panels and bed. The overall weight of this new truck will be 700 lbs less than its predecessor. The use of military grade aluminum alloy makes this truck even more capable and more effective too. Plus, it accelerates, brakes, and resists corrosion. This military grade aluminum alloy also does not produce red rust like steel, unlike any truck ever before. Some military grade types of aluminum are stronger than high strength steel. For instance, 7000 series alloys are often used in transport applications and gun. It is predicted that more manufacturers will use this type of military grade aluminum.

Highlights

Ford will use a new, fully-boxed high-strength steel frame which is stronger and more rigid than ever. Like other F-150 models, this new 2015 Ford F-150 is not a unibody design. This new truck is using body on frame design to provide maximum towing capability.

According to Ford.com news, the all-new F-150 frame will use more high-strength (70,000) steel (from 23 percent to 77 percent). The new frame is up to 60 pounds lighter than its predecessors.

On top of the completely redesigned frame, the 2015 Ford F-150 also offers a totally new exterior and interior. Also, the use of military grade aluminum alloys on body and bed. To learn more about this new F-150, please view videos below:
