Have you guys seen this? Comes with built in motorcycle/atv ramp!
And has aluminum body theyre saying its going to get really good gas mileage being 700
Pounds lighter what do you guys think? Aluminum is good enough right? My brother in law got a 2014 last saturday because he says aluminum as weak and he wanted to get a ford now before they "ruined" them. I wonder what you guys think? Ford says jaguar an audi already use aluminum and that its a military grade aluminum and the frame they built it on is rolled steel and stronger than the 14. What is your guyses take??

Why save money? Will Toyota now have to start deep discounts to keep their sales volume competitive?

Fords are awesome when they dont break down on you. If you want something that lasts get a Toyota.

I personally love the Fords when it comes to trucks (cars is another story). I've owned a couple Ford trucks; F350, F250, and multiple F150's. All of which have been absolutely great trucks, minus the F250 I had, which was a 2006 and known to have issues. Other than that truck, they've all been solid trucks.

3 weeks ago I was looking at the new silverados (looking to maybe try a chevy) and thought to myself, "why change something that has treated me good"? Left there and bought a new F150 and love it.

I'm excited to see this new Ford coming out and see how it does. I'm sure it will be another great truck.

Ill stick to my 04 Sierra Crewcab.....its old, it has miles, most important is it costs 0/mo....LOL

The new trucks in general are all very nice....Just cant justify getting rid of mine that has given me only 1 issue in its lifetime (seat heaters wouldnt stay on).

I've had a 1/2 ton ram with the ecodiesel for a couple of months now. I've owned alot of different trucks over the years with a variety of engines and this truck absolutely puts them all to shame. 26 in the city, 16 towing, 440# torque. No other truck I've had performs like this one.

I've heard they're great. Let's just see the longevity of the truck (hopefully well). My dad just had one ordered last week and if I remember right, Mark Schim had already ordered one as well. I'm not sure what he paid... But I know my dad said they weren't "giving" them away lol.

I saw a story that claimed ford already had some 2015 trucks being field tested at mining sites (dressed in 2014 bodywork, but with the aluminum bed) the pictures showed a well used bed apparently holding up well.

What grade of aluminum? T-7075 is just as strong as steel and threaded holes are stronger.

I wouldnt call it built in.....you can probably pay an absurd amount to get fords ramps, that mount to another piece thats in the side of the bed.
