Ford Atlas Concept Previews Next-Gen F-Series

Trying to steal some eyes from the General’s new half-tons, Ford rolled out a new truck concept today in Detroit called the Atlas, which showcases some new innovation coming to the next generation of Ford’s pickup trucks.

Although no power train details were divulged, a new-generation of EcoBoost engine is promised, which will feature stop-start technology for improved fuel economy. Improved aerodynamics will also be fighting on the fuel economy front, as the Atlas features active grille shutters, active wheel shutters, a drop-down front-air dam and power running boards. The active wheel shutters hide themselves when the trucks are at low speeds for style, but they emerge from behind the wheels at highway speeds to improve the airflow.

Oddly my first glance at it made me think Dodge, not Ford. I am not sure I like it very much.
