In those vehicles, aluminum makes sense, and it’s probably the material of the future for cars in their class.
Full-size American pickups, though, require something a little sturdier. American cowboys like their domestic workhorses because they’re tough, heavy-duty machines built with good old-fashioned steel. No pansy lightweight building materials like those Europeans are using.
Well, cover your ears cowboys, because the F-150 is going aluminum. Maybe.
