The 2015 Ford F-150 made its grand debut at the Detroit Auto Show.

The much-hyped 2015 Ford F-150 showed its face for the first time Monday at the Detroit Auto Show. The 2015 Ford F-150 is 700-pounds lighter than previous models thanks to an innovative aluminum structure and the all-new 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 engine.

Aluminum alloy is already used in the construction of military vehicles including the HMMWV and Bradley Fighting Vehicle. Aluminum helped reduced the size of the F-150 by 700 pounds from the curb weight.
