Can’t Wait for the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor? Order a 2015 Hennessey VelociRaptor 600 Supercharged
We’re getting closer and closer to the on-sale date of the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor, but time’s just not passing quickly enough, is it? If you think so and you just have to have an aluminum-bodied off-road monster right now, Hennessey has got you covered.
We know the 2015 Ford F-150 has an aluminum body. We know the prices for its body parts are more or less what they were for the 2014 model year. We still don’t know what insurance rates for the trucks will ultimately be, though.
Switching to aluminum for the body of the 2015 Ford F-150 was a bold choice for the company. It also required retooling, new manufacturing processes, and new ways to cut costs.
Some texting driver turned the rear end of a brand new, dealer-tag-wearing 2015 Ford F-150 into a hideous, mangled aluminum mess.
Ford is running at full steam to produce the aluminum-bodied F-150. After 13 weeks of upgrades, the Kansas City, MO plant is now online.
