Default 2015 F150 Spied

So some spy shots of the 2015 f150, all i can tell from the pics is the nose looks a lot lower than the present f150 probably for pedestrian safety.

Funny you said it i was reading a similar thread on f150 online and a lot of guys noticed the 97-03 body features ie. 5 lug rims back window style. There are sensors on the tailpipe so it's probably a mule for the power train.

More info on 2015 and extensive use of Aluminum

http://www.trucktrend.com/future/spi...gan/index.html

Aluminum is not cheap so wondering how Ford will keep costs under control? Not to mention insurance costs for consumers, aluminum NOT cheap to fix!

*As for pic in OPs post from pickuptruck.com I think the body is the same as current model and basically putting camo on it to throw off the hounds.

Sometimes to get a test truck rolling they'll throw an old undercarriage in it. The truck is headed to the crusher anyways, so why spend the money to prototype the whole thing?

My guess is that they are testing a turbo 5.0 in a old chassis.
