Report: Ford's new F-150 to add to owners' insurance cost

|About: Ford Motor Company (F)|By:, SA News Editor

Ford's (F) new F-150 trucks will save owners money on fuel expenses due to the use of lighter-weight aluminum, but might add to their insurance bill.

Estimates on the additional cost of insuring the new line of trucks range as high as 10%.

A lack of mechanics experienced with working with aluminum and the cost of the separate tools required for the metal is behind the potential insurance premium.
