Aluminum-sided pickup from Ford to cost more


DETROIT — Ford Motor Co.’s new aluminum-sided pickup will cost a little more than its predecessor when it goes on sale late this year.

The new truck comes in five variants, down from 10 on the current truck. All have aluminum sides, which is more expensive than steel but weighs less and saves fuel.

Ford’s base XL and XLT models — which make up 70 percent of sales — will cost $395 more.

The base XL will start at $26,615, including destination fees. That’s slightly higher than the Ram pickup but lower than the Chevrolet Silverado.
