Wink Insurance has Your Back...

Ford worked heavily with insurance companies to make sure you don't take a hit simply because your truck is aluminium...

Quote:
It wasn’t a finger-snap, though. Ford worked with Allstate and its in-house research operation, Tec-Core Applied Research, for several years prior to the new F-150’s launch to analyze the truck and educate and train both body-shop technicians and Allstate’s own adjusters. The company said more than 2,500 adjusters and claims staff completed aluminum-repair training specific to the F-150.


“The result of all this work ahead of the new truck ever hitting the road is that the insurance premiums on the 2015 Ford F-150 are in line with the prior model year when Ford used steel instead of aluminum,” said Dave Border, Allstate vice president of Vehicle Product Management, in a release.

That's good to hear because it would suck to have higher insurance costs for the aluminum body. That could have been a weakness of this truck but ford seems to have nipped that in the bud.

Glad they took what the consumer would have to into consideration, but of course their stronger motivation is what that'll do to their sales volume. Imagine the discussions going " don't want an F150 anymore due to aluminum.... this is my other option..."

When it has to do with how specific choices can impact their profit, they'll step in.
