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…
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.
To honor the Kansas City Royals’ 2015 championship (and an idea from a diehard fan of the team), Ford is releasing a limited number of 2016 F-150 MVP edition trucks.
Right now, the floor of the NRG Center in Houston is full of more than 700 vehicles that range from performance cars to pickup trucks. In between those two extremes at the Houston Auto Show stands the 2016 Shelby American F-150.
The next-generation Ford F-150 Raptor is a big deal. It’s an even bigger deal – literally – in the SuperCrew bodystyle shown at this week’s 2016 North American International Auto Show.
