Atlas is an enormous feat of engineering imagination. When you walk up to Atlas, it's enormous, and sitting inside you notice that there is a massive space for passengers, unlike current production trucks, which seem to leave the people inside wishing for more space. The technological ideas are quite impressive. Roof as well as bed cargo carrier, so even if the bed is full, your wife can still pack more on the roof. Why hasn't this been tried before? There is a power outlet in the bed so that you can power your tools for work, or a stereo for some fun at the beach.
Since it's such a huge piece of equipment Ford introduces a 360 degree camera system to show and sense how close to objects the truck is. Which leads to the display, which is larger than any produced in North America. Packed with features from GPS, bluetooth, text messaging, Pandora, and much more. Fords new Dynamic Hitch Assist, helps you hook your trailer the first time, every time.
Quite a few fuel saving ideas make the Atlas seem like a bat-mobile, not something to use from day to day. At high speed improving aerodynamics, a front air dam descends, grill shutters close, and wheel shutters close to push away that pesky wind drag. The running boards descend when a passenger wants to exit, but ascend to avoid damage, and decrease wind resistance.
This truck is less than likely to hit production, but it's a good bet to think we will see some if not many of these options on your next F-150.
