I think the most fun part of the video is the guy getting to hit the truck with a sledge hammer. Reminds me of those levels in Street Fighter where you just beat up a car.Yeah ultimately that is what you want to do.
It's just good to see here first hand what it's like and what it will cost.
Years of experience have taught me that a Ford Truck can take far more abuse than just being hit by a hammer. If Top Gear had taken a Ford truck and gave it the same treatment as the Toyota, the Ford would have pulled off the same feat.something they would do to a ford, swing a hammer at it.
Al means no rust, but there can still be corrosion if you are not careful, especially when different metals touch.So what's the main goal of an aluminum bodied truck?
Lower depreciation? More strength??? Less weight allowing truck companies to distribute weight in other areas??
I think it was MotorTrend that showed how expensive it can get to fix a panel on the F150, easily shot up high into the 4 figure rangeAluminum bodies will make dealership body shops a disgusting amount of money. I bet you insurance rates will go up for the new F150 as some claims start coming in.
