KAYSER COLLISION CENTER CAN NOW REPAIR YOUR 2015 ALUMINUM F-150
About the 2015 F-150:
As you may have heard, Ford has redesigned the 2015 F-150 to an all-aluminum body. This is very big news for the Collision Center, as we get prepared to make the repairs to this High Strength Military Grade Aluminum Alloy that Ford is using. Over 90% of the F-150 cab is aluminum and the bed is completely aluminum. Basically, the only steel parts are the door latches and hinges, rivets and bolts, side-impact beams and the truck's frame.
Ford's process of fitting the body panels involves a combination of gluing and riveting, as well as some welds. The aluminum body panels will reduce the truck's weight by 700 pounds from the 2014 model. This weight loss makes it possible to offer the truck with a new 2.7-liter turbocharged EcoBoost V6 engine as one option. This is designed to increase MPG and save money at the pump.
