In the new era, just 20 years from now, nearly 14 billion pounds of aluminum from new 2015 Ford F-150 trucks will flood auto recycling facilities, and if things work out right, aluminum prices will never be the same again. » 1/21/14 5:47pm 1/21/14 5:47pm

The 2013 Ford F-150 Is The 2012 F-150 With More Sync

Ford introduced the 2013 Ford F-150 today, and aside from a slight change to the grille, it looks a lot like last year's model. But take heart, Blue Oval engineers — truck buyers are statistically more likely to buy your truck than anyone else's, so in Ford's case, status quo seems to be sexier than planned… » 6/04/12 12:30pm 6/04/12 12:30pm
