An Aluminum Ford F-150 Gets Slammed With Sledgehammer…

The question everyone is having with the new aluminum body on the Ford F-150 is it as durable as steel. As explained in the video aluminum makes the truck lighter, making fuel economy go up. Also its a much more flexible metal making it less easy to dent. So the easy answer to that question is yes, aluminum is more durable then steel and an all round better choice for the truck.


Just wait there’s a catch… Aluminum is probably one of the most expensive metals to fix. Almost doubling your time in the body shop which doubles the amount you pay on labor. So the real question should be, is it a smarter idea to go with aluminum or steel… You decide. Make sure to leave a comment below and tell us what you think.
