The 2015 Ford F-150 has been generating buzz and excitement seemingly for forever now—and it still hasn’t shown up at a dealership yet! As you’re no doubt aware by now, the 2015 Ford F-150 is built on an aluminum-infused body, making it lighter and more fuel efficient than a traditional steel-bodied truck. It’s a radical shift in truck makeup for Ford—and it’s a giant leap of faith to shake up the formula of America’s best-selling truck series.
However, there’s a lot of good news for Ford recently—as Ford’s customers are apparently very intrigued by the idea of the lightweighted F-150. Originally, a survey seemed to say that F-150 customers simply didn’t care what material the Ford F-150 was made of, but after getting more information about the new aluminum frame, 43% of customers said they were more likely to buy the truck because of the new metal.
The new F-150 should shed about 700 lbs from the previous model, which will help push the truck’s fuel numbers up to the top of the pack. If you’re one of that 43% (and growing!) of people intrigued by the F-150, check back with us here at Shults Ford Lincoln of Wexford for more information very soon.
