With the huge emphasis on fuel economy that is being placed on pickup trucks now a days, automakers are doing everything they can to make their heavy duty haulers use less gas.

Ford showed off the future of its active aero with the Atlas concept, which included not only active grille shutters, but active wheel shutters as well that pop down from in front of the wheel wells.
