Aluminum Body Ford F-150 Already Seeing Action?

Ford might be crazier than that date you took out for Chinese food recently.  The one insisting she move in and the two of you get a poodle named Fluffy because that would be “like super cute.”  After hearing all about her best friend Tiffany’s plastic surgery mishap and the ex-boyfriend’s raging alcohol problem, you head home and take refuge in automobiles.

You watch videos of drag races, performance specs and test runs because it numbs the pain (and rage) as she blows up your phone with endless texts wondering why you left and if you love her. Then you remember as you walked home after getting rid of wacko date, you saw a guy driving an F-150 who seemed to have a normal, nice girl in the front seat.

The truck MUST be the answer.

So you type “Ford F-150″ into the search bar and see this . . .

Has Ford been flying partly under the radar with regard to the new aluminum body for the 2015 F-150?  Looks like they have been testing the aluminum construction in some pretty rough conditions all along.  I will echo the thoughts of the F-150 Forum and agree it’s pretty sneaky on their part but when you are Ford, you can get away with stuff like this!

Here is the full story.
