Ford ends steel-bodied F-150 production

DEARBORN (WKZO) -- Work is underway at Ford's Dearborn Truck Plant to put in new machinery to build the 2015 F-150 pickup with an all-new aluminum body.

Until now, the iconic pickup has been made from steel, and the last of those rolled off the assembly line on Saturday. The changeover at the plant is expected to take eight weeks.

Ford sells 60-thousand F-150s a month, so the automaker is working to make the changes as quickly as possible.
