Ford Establishes Air Curtain Technology On The New F-150
BRIGHTON, Mich. - There has been tons of hype surrounding the all-new 2015 Ford F-150, and it is definitely deserving of all the excitement! After an industry-first engineering breakthrough of using an all-aluminum frame to replace the heavy, fuel-sucking, burdensome steel frame of the past, another engineering breakthrough is the additional implementation of air curtain technology!
Ford establishes Air Curtain Technology on the new F-150! As seen in the graphic above, air curtain technology guides airflow across the front wheels of the truck to reduce wind turbulence which helps make the all-new F-150 THE MOST aerodynamically efficient F-150 EVER! So, how does this all happen? Horizontal slots underneath the headlamps channel air from the front of the truck through ducting to openings in the wheel wells, which direct it across the outer surface of the wheel and tire. You can always count on Ford to continually push the boundaries of daring design while making the new 2015 F-150 more aerodynamically efficient over all the previous models.
With the new F-150, an extensive amount of time was spent running aerodynamic simulations and doing wind tunnel tests which in the end produced a more aerodynamic, efficient F-150 truck– the first of its kind. Ford establishes Air Curtain Technology on the new F-150 which is the result of hard working Ford engineers and designers showing how incremental improvement helped the all-new F-150 earn its position as the most fuel efficient gasoline pickup in the light-duty truck segment!
