The 2015 Ford F-150 has been revealed. The weight savings are massive, 2.7 liter EcoBoost engine is a reality, and the look is pretty far off from the Atlas concept we've been dissecting for the past year.
The fully boxed ladder frame remains, but built with steel that's both stronger and lighter than what's in the outgoing model. Aluminum has been used in previous F-150s and we've been talking about the greater role it would play in this model for ages— now is seems the rumors of "700 pound weight savings" through usage of the metal held water. It's used in the body of the pickup for the first time, which Ford claims will improve dent resistance as well as reduce weight and improve efficiency.
