IMO the new f150 was absolutley hidieous to me when I first looked at it.... But its growing on me.. the cab style looks similair to a dodge, and the front end to me, SCREAMS tundra. but the grill has the large tall opening like the ram trucks do. If you look closely you can see the design cues. on the topic of the aluminum.... It wont rust, so you wont need to weld in patch panels so the bodyshop guys shouldnt be too bad off... but dent removal may be difficult because if Im correct, aluminum expands and stretches when it is bent.. It should be interesting to see some strength tests I'm sure someone will do...

I think Chrysler has the best looking cars but that's my opinion and Ford also. I think the Ford truck will remain number one. Toyota and Hyunda  has great looking cars and great quality. My inlaws bought 3 new Toyotas this year and they are very impressive cars..

The grill shape of the F150 reminds of the R35 GTR grill shape, very close

..and speaking of new cars, it is surprising none of the kit makers have announced a 'kit of the '14 Corvette Stingray or the current Viper yet, let alone a '15 Mustang...

Round 2 has secured the rights to do diecasts and plastic kits of the 2015 Mustang.

Right..I read that article.  Will be interesting to see what they announce.  Diecast will probably be in the Auto World line.

Is it a exclusive rights deal? , or can say Revell obtained the rights as well?

Well this answers the question about new AMT tools. I hope it's a full-detail kit.

 

I'm still making up my mind as to how much I actually like the 2015 Mustang, but I'll certainly buy one of the plastic ones to encourage AMT to do more new tools.

They're just un-assembled promos for all intents and purposes.  We're supposed to get all wispy eyed and nostalgic for the old AMT kits of yore.  Well not me, I'm not old enough to remember any of that...seems like a faulty premise since you want people who would remember those old AMT kits fondly and wrapping them up in new cars they probably don't find appealing.

I dunno.. I think the best Ford truck in quite a while is the Raptor.

 

Love this truck!

 

Maybe they will make a new styled one for 2015 based on the new F150?

Found this on the 200 owners forum I joined a couple years back, if Chrysler continues with the 200 convertable on the new chassis, I hope it looks like this!

No word yet on whether Chrysler will be offering the redesigned 2015 22 as a two-door convertible, but this rendering shows us that it would take well to the drop-top look. If the 200 sedan proves to be successful, I think that a 200 Convertible would be a logical next step. That vehicle likely wouldn't arrive until 2016 though.

Would you consider buying a 200 Convertible?
