Ford Debuts Lighter, Aluminum 2015 F-150

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

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. Ford says the aluminum leads to better fuel efficiency, heavy loads, and driving dynamics. 70% of weight loss is directly tied to aluminum. The other 30 percent comes from increased use of high-strength steel in its ladder-box frame.

“Our objective was to find materials that allowed us to design the truck to be as tough – or tougher – than the current model, yet could help it be hundreds of pounds lighter for better capability and fuel economy,” said Pete Friedman, Ford’s manager of manufacturing research.
