2015 F-150 Body Parts No More Expensive Than 2014
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.
Lost in the pissing match between Edmunds.com and Consumer Reports over the repair costs of aluminum was something that’s really important; not every Ford dealership has been trained by Ford to work on the aluminum-bodied F-150. But most have been.
Are you still worried about Ford using aluminum in the new F-150, or are you convinced that they know what they’re doing?
Aluminum. It’s used to make cans in which you drink beer out of. It’s the key material in a wrap you use to preserve food. It’s also a lightweight material that is used in cars and trucks. Most recently, it’s made headlines by being the main component in the body of the 2015 Ford F-150.
