A few weeks ago at the NAIAS show Ford debuted their 2015 Ford F-150 Atlas concept. It still is making waves even though time has passed. What makes it great? Let's take a look.
From the front design to the back, it just wows especially in person. When we were at the show, the lines to see the truck were at least 3 deep during media day and it was hard for quite a while to take a photo. Looking at the truck versus the other manufactures, it definitely stood out. It really looks like a truck and an impressive futuristic truck at that. The power and wow factor are all over it styling and the blue lighting on the silver sheet metal is really sharp.
Ford has lots of new cool features on this concept truck. Here are some of the cool ones according to Pickuptrucks.com:
- Dynamic Hitch Assist: The center display screen will show with visual cues exactly where the hitch ball and trailer socket are located and make it an easy, one-time backup operation.
- 360-Degree Camera: This is a first for full-size pickups. With four separate cameras, the driver is able to see all around the truck from a bird's-eye view.
- Trailer Backup Assist: With the same sensors that help with the hitch assist, the truck can be programmed to back up the vehicle and trailer into a designated space without the driver's hands on the steering wheel.
