The 2015 Ford F-150 is kind of a big deal, and for more than one reason. Any time America's best-selling vehicle is completely redesigned is cause for cautious celebration, because this full-size truck has morphed into a national icon, and no one wants to see a hero of this stature stumble. The collective holding of breath associated with this latest 2015 iteration of the truck has been even more pronounced due to Ford's decision to deploy the first all-aluminum pickup body on the market, a daring move intended to introduce significant weight savings, improve performance, and enhance efficiency.
Sometimes what sounds like a revolution turns out to be more of an evolution, however. After driving the 2015 Ford F-150 in and around San Antonio, Texas, and sampling its capabilities both on and off road, it’s easy to see that the new pickup has been improved in several key areas. At the same time, it feels like there's less of a gap between the F-Series of old and its latest incarnation. It's a great truck, made better, in a world where great trucks are fast becoming the norm.
