New aluminum Ford truck is wave of the future

This is a response to the letter regarding aluminum used in the F-150 2015 Ford by Tim Sanor:

1. The 2015 F-150 has a five-star safety rating, Chevy has four stars.

2. The Insurance Institute says there are no extra repair costs or premiums at this time.

3. There are no steel airplanes or rockets.

4. Tonka trucks and bulldozers are now made of plastic; they don't rust.

Aluminum is the wave of the future. GM and Dodge have been buying aluminum for the past three years for their trucks.
