Many have been criticizing Ford for putting out this year’s F-150s in a new aluminum body. Ford says their reinforced aluminum is just as tough as previous bodies but is considerably lighter. While most people tend to think of anything made of aluminum folding like a soda can, Edmunds is here to test just how durable this material is!
They crack it with a sledgehammer and the Ford stands up extremely well! However, it’s the body work that will cost you. It costs nearly $1,200 to fix this panel with aluminum as opposed to the roughly $600 job were it the original material.
