    I've owned all different manner of Dodge, Chevy, Ford and Toyota trucks throughout the 1970's, 80's, 90's and 21st century and logged well over a million miles crisscrossing the country. Without a doubt my F-150 is the best truck I have ever owned bar none, period, end of my story.

    Will it have a real frame underneath it?

    Their next version of the generic white van won't.



    Edit: I just googled the Ford Atlas for more info. It appears that it will still have a real frame. From what I just read, Ford is floating around the idea of making the frame and/or body out of aluminum to reduce weight, but will probably stick with steel to prevent consumer backlash from those that think aluminum is inferior.

    Geez, I thought over 10,000 pounds of towing capacity with a V-6 Ecoboost and 23 MPG was not too shabby. And, I don't pay near as much for gas as I would for diesel.
