New 2015 Ford F-150 Heading to 2013 Detroit Auto Show

General Motors has just finished up unveiling its new trucks and Ford is looking to steal away some of the thunder at next year’s Detroit Auto Show by giving everyone a peek at its next-generation F-150.

Two people familiar with Ford’s plans have reported to Reuters that the American automaker will be heading to Detroit with a teaser of the 2015 F-150, which should be launching in the fall of 2014.

The next-generation F-150 will be crucial to Ford’s portfolio, given that its F-series has been America’s best-selling vehicle for 30 years. With its new F-150, the automaker is hoping to lighten the load by 700 to 750 pounds thanks to a generous use of aluminum and a redesign of its brakes and axles. The prototype heading to the Detroit Auto Show should give a good preview of the pickup’s new design.
