We are drawing closer to the full scale arrival of the aluminum bodied 2015 Ford F-150 at dealerships around the country. At the same time, there are still plenty of 2014 F-150 pickups on lots so over the next few months, buyers at Ford dealerships will be able to pick between old and new F-150s.

During this time, buyers will be able to consider the aluminum bodied 2015 F-150 that will carry a higher price and less “wiggle room” to the steel bodied 2014 F-150 that will likely cost far less thanks to deep discounts to move old models.

While some people question the move to aluminum and things like the cost to repair the body panels, the lighter body will make the 2015 F-150 the lightest half ton truck on the market – also making it the most efficient and the most capable.

On the other hand, the 2014 F-150 offers very similar capabilities and very solid fuel economy, while being far less expensive when sitting on the same lot as the brand new models.

With all of that in mind, we come to our question of the week.

If you were looking to buy a half ton truck in the next few months, would you be shopping for a 2014 F-150 or a new 2015 F-150? Click here to head into the forum to vote in our poll!
