Edmunds decided to inject some fact into the fray over repair costs for the aluminum 2015 Ford F-150: it bought a $52,000 long-term F-150 and clouted it with a sledgehammer. Twice. Then it drove the truck to a Ford dealer to get it repaired. Seven days later it had a restored truck and a bill.
The next generation of the Ford F-150 Raptor pickup truck looks to be more off-road capable than ever before, combining a brand-new, specially designed, high-strength steel frame, aluminum bodywork, a 3.5-liter turbocharged EcoBoost engine, a 10-speed automatic transmission and a new set of Fox Racing shocks.

The Ford F-150 has been the best-selling truck in the United States for the past 37 years, and the best-selling vehicle outright for the past 32. That's quite a legacy, and thus, it's no surprise that Ford worked super-duper-extra hard on creating the all-new, aluminum-bodied 2015 F-150 that debuted at the Detroit Auto Show earlier this year.
New truck! Jimmy Fallon of The Tonight Show has been searching for the perfect new truck for a few weeks now, soliciting help from all corners in the process. Last night, Fallon made the announcement that the Ford F-150 King Ranch – in all of its cowboy glory – had been picked as his big winner.
Bloomberg TV reporter Matt Miller is the proud new owner of a pretty killer truck. How do we know? The reporter headed to Dearborn, MI to Ford's assembly plant, with a film crew in tow, to see exactly how his new F-150 SVT Raptor and its mother-loving 6.2-liter V8 engine, was screwed together.
