Eager to Find Out the True Cost of Insuring the 2015 Ford F-150? Hurry Up and Wait.
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.

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.
Ford’s decision to switch its perennial sales juggernaut, the F-150, from a steel to an aluminum body starting with the 2015 model year was a big gamble, to say the least. That didn’t mean the Blue Oval had bet all of its chips, though. The Super Duty lineup was still going to be steel-bodied…but not for long.
