It’ll be time to upgrade my F150 in 2015 and I’m excited about this one.  Will I buy it?  Hmmm,  mayhap so.  If the actual F150 Atlas comes close to the concept, this could be a really sweet truck and a winner for Ford.

Here’s a blip from Driving.  The link to the full article is at the bottom.

There are beer cans, and then there are Humvees. Ford will take pains to show its new, aluminum F-150 pickup has more in common with combat vehicles.

Ford will debut an aluminum F-Series — its anticipated and high-stakes redesign of the top-selling pickup in history — at next month’s Detroit auto show, according to people familiar with Ford’s plans. The automaker has asked Alcoa Inc., which makes aluminum blast shields for battlefield-bound vehicles, to lend some of its military-grade metal for the automaker’s display, said one of those people, who asked not to be identified because the plans are secret.
