Ford Can Build 30,000 F-150 Bodies a Month with the Amount of Aluminum It Recycles
This is just how much aluminum the closed loop recycling process at Ford’s Dearborn Stamping Plant saves…
Have you ever started a “simple” weekend project or week long project, and have it go on for a month, a year, or even longer? If you have, then you can identify with Jose Quintero and his 2013 Ford F-250 project.
Ford’s decision to switch the body and bed of the F-150 from steel to lightweight aluminum was made in order to give the truck greater hauling and towing capabilities, and better fuel economy. The Blue Oval chose to make its money-maker meaner and greener.
Let’s face it. At at least one point in our driving lives, each one of us has…er…gone a little faster than we should’ve been going.
For $22,260, you could buy an entry-level 2016 Ford Fusion. Or you could pass over a brand new car for a vintage vehicle with a lot of character and pay roughly the same amount of money.
