Ford Motor Co. on Tuesday revealed details about the engines that will power the aluminum-body 2015 F-150, and showed the pickup is lighter than originally estimated.

The new truck will be offered with a base 3.5-liter Ti-VCT V-6 engine, or a 2.7-liter EcoBoost V-6. And in a direct comparison with a steel-body 2014 F-150, Ford showed a 732-pound weight difference — more than the 700-pound estimate given when the 2015 pickup was revealed at the 2014 North American International Auto Show.

You can even spec a houndstooth interior! While it’s true that they don’t have 707 hp—the V6 models make do with less than half that figure—the non-Hellcatted Challengers are still worth a look.

In terms of secrecy, the testing regime for the 2015 Ford F-150 sounds like it was ripped right out of the pages of a Dan Brown novel.

For almost three years, the project has involved secret prototypes, codenames, and a strict need-to-know basis when it came to what was going on in the depths of the largest gold mine in the U.S.

The newly consolidated Dodge and SRT brands are launching out of the gate at full throttle – introducing the new 707 horsepower 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT with a Hellcat engine and its stablemate, the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT – just a few months after taking the wraps off the new Dodge Challenger 392 HEMI® Scat Pack Shaker at the New York International Auto Show.
