The 2015 Ford F-150 is the most powerful, the most efficient and the most capable F-150 ever and with this truck being so much better than the award-winning models of the past, you would think that the next generation half ton Ford pickup would be rolling in major awards. However, several media sources have found fault with the fact that the 2015 F-150 has a body made of aluminum.

Although the aluminum body makes the 2015 Ford F-150 lighter than past models – which helps to improve the fuel economy and performance in every way – some people are scared that it will cost a fortune to repair the new F-150.

The added cost to repair the body panels of the F-150 may also lead to higher insurance costs and this combination of unknown repair costs down the road has caused some journalists to question the greatness of the newest F Series pickup.

With all of this in mind, we come to our Question of the Week:

Do you think that all of the negativity over the aluminum body panels of the 2015 Ford F-150 are being overblown by the media?
