With an aluminum truck bed, the Ford F-150 was suddenly lighter and faster, with increased towing power & fuel efficiency. But was it stronger? The Chevy Silverado was inclined to think not. In order to prove steel is still the stronger choice for a truck bed over aluminum, we performed two drop-style experiments in front of real truck guys - and literally poked holes in Ford's aluminum campaign.
We even cut a fun parody that never aired, but is worth a watch.
