Remember the Time They Hit an F-150 with a Sledgehammer?
You need not worry about its aluminum body.
For all of you concerned about the Ford F-150's aluminum body, here you go. The material switch was made to improve durability against dents and dings, everything from small door bang ups to, what else, sledgehammers. The weight savings are especially noteworthy, helping to shave up to 700 pounds from previous years. It substantially improves fuel economy, to boot. Add all of this together with natural rust prevention, and you have the formula that makes up the nation's best selling truck 39 years in a row.
This video provided by Edmunds shows the aluminum's resilience towards significant blows such as the one you see here. It's useful, and who doesn't like seeing a little bit of destruction?
