The Detroit Auto Show has come and gone, and now that the curtain has been lifted on Ford’s aluminum-based 2015 F-150 trucks, mainstream pundits are looking at the impact of aluminum on the auto industry. Bloomberg TV dedicated an entire segment to this topic, and you can see the whole video here.

Some highlights include:

  • The fact that the aluminum body makes the F-150 700 lbs less.
  • Audi has been using aluminum for more than 20 years.
  • The F-150 is “the most important” unveiling of the year.

Now that the public has seen the F-150, dealerships are considering the logistics of this new model, particularly the repair. More on that in the coming weeks.
