Canadians just had a truck competition, called the
Truck King Challenge fielded 16 competitors for the 2014 event
The multi-test event took place in Kawartha Lakes (light-duty trucks) and London, Ontario (heavy-duty trucks), with an expert panel of five judges making real-world truck evaluations that focused on work capability, fuel consumption and features

Ram is the best looking truck, no doubt.
New 2015 f150 will have an aluminum body..? Problems there?
I live near detroit where the truck play is, I see these bra-ed up trucks all the time, hah.

The Atlas looks awesome, but knowing ford, it will probably be a platinum only look for $60k+ or more.........or it will never make it to production as it is now, but in a more washed down form.
And the aluminum body, while they make planes like that, I'd wait a few years to see how they hold up. 700lb less is impressive, if it works, i'm sure they will all follow the trend. I don't know if the aluminum will be a steel alloy or what, but ford has this talent to make everything rust.

Don't stress the aluminum... Ford has has been using aluminum panels for a while now, i.e., Mustang hoods... While they had some issues with paint adhesion in earlier models, they have since remedied the problem.

Competition is great! It pushes others to build a better product. The new Ram pushed Ford... and now it's time for Ford... It's all good!
