This is the new Ford F-150Mon, 13 Jan 2014 00:00:00 -0800
The photos above represent the new, improved best-selling vehicle in America: The 2015 Ford F-150. What do we know so far? The new F-150's body is 95 percent high-strength aluminum while the frame is 77 percent high-strength steel. That latter number is basically a reversal of today's F-150, which has a frame made up of 75 percent mild steel. Depending on trim level and model, the weight savings over the current F-150 can be as much as 700 pounds.
To maximize economy, Ford will offer the new F-150 with a 2.7-liter turbocharged engine among other powertrains. The F-150 also gets exterior cameras offering a 360-degree view to help while parking, backing or towing.
We'll have more on the new 2015 Ford F-150 soon, and you can watch the press conference live stream below.
