Novelis, based out of Atlanta, is the largest supplier of aluminum sheet to the auto industry, counting Ford, Audi and Jaguar among its clients.
We already know that the 2015 Ford F-150 has a base price coming in at just $395 more than the 2014 model, despite all of the new standard tech and aluminum-intensive construction in the upcoming version. In the next decade, the auto industry will see an explosion in its use of aluminum to cut weight and increase fuel economy, according to a study from market analysts Ducker Worldwide cited by The Detroit News. Ford is making a big bet on aluminum with its new 2015 F-150, and it's possible that the decision will hurt the company financially, at least in the short term. With the introduction of the aluminum-bodied 2015 Ford F-150 (and the likely use of aluminum in future Ford products), Ford is looking to help its dealerships reduce costs related to repairing this more labor-intensive material.
Despite having to share Ford's Detroit Auto Show stand with the hot new 2015 Mustang, the brand-new F-150 was arguably an even more important debut. Not only have we been told that the 2015 Ford F-150 is tougher, more durable and up to 700 pounds lighter than the current truck, Ford COO Mark Fields said it's also "CAFE-positive." That means, for the first time in the history of corporate average fuel economy standards, the F-150 would be a positive contributor on Ford's CAFE balance sheet instead of being a vehicle it needs to counterbalance with frugal offerings.
Ford is redesigned the 2011 Ford Explorer  SUV with freshened styling, new engines, and new features. 2011 Ford Explorer SUV is available in three trims: they are the Eddie Bauer, the XLT and the Premium Limited. Vehicle crash and safety data is provided by NHTSA, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Sharing its car-based platform with the Taurus sedan, the Ford Explorer sits squarely in the crossover realm, pitting it against competitors like the Toyota Highlander, Honda Pilot and Chevrolet Traverse.

A brand new generation of the Toyota Highlander crossover made its debut at the 2013 New York Auto Show this morning, and with it came a new version of the popular Highlander Hybrid.


The new Highlander is bigger and bolder than the model it replaces, now looking much more like a full-blown SUV than a crossover, though at the same time it promises to be more efficient. The non-hybrid models get a standard six-speed automatic and the choice of front-wheel or all-wheel drive, while the Highlander Hybrid comes exclusively with a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) and all-wheel drive. The hybrid’s all-wheel-drive system is based on a through-the-road setup where the gasoline engine powers the front wheels and the electric drive system is used for the rear wheels. Those figures are quite impressive considering the 2014 Highlander Hybrid offers seating for eight (seven when second-row captain’s seats are selected), more cargo capacity and increased standard features.
Production of the 2014 Toyota Highlander Hybrid will take place at Toyota’s plant in Princeton, Indiana. We'll bring you an update with the full details soon but in the meantime you can gather more details on the new Highlander from the in-depth preview on our sister site, The Car Connection.

Now the Blue Oval is finally giving us an idea of what that extra money actually buys customers, with the release of the appearance guide for its latest pickup. We are already seeing the lightweight metal show up extensively in luxury models from Europe, but with the impending launch of aluminum-intensive 2015 Ford F-150 (pictured above), North America is using it even more, as well. After earning a record $8.6 billion in 2013, the Blue Oval does not expect to set another record in 2014. This venerable nameplate moves to crossover-style unibody construction, sharing elements of its basic design with the Ford Flex.
The exterior has grown in length by approximately three inches while width is increased by half an inch.


In June, Novelis' VP of global recycling forecast carmaker demand for aluminum sheet to increase five-fold by 2020.
According to Automotive News, that's "largely attributable to F Series," says Bob Shanks, Ford's Chief Financial Officer. Ford moved some 700,000 examples of its F-Series truck in 2012, making it not only the best-selling pickup truck, but the top-selling vehicle in the US, by a long-shot. Of these two the 4.6-liter V8 is more powerful and the first choice who wants to vroom away with a swiftness making the onlookers amazed and astonished.
