Nobody is more important to the F-150 team than F-150 drivers. After all, they’ve made F-Series the best selling trucks in Canada for 48 consecutive years. (Seriously—has anything else been at the top for half a century? Maybe the Rolling Stones, but the F-150 is tougher*. Have you ever seen Mick Jagger or Keith Richards tow anything bigger than a Telecaster? Case. Closed.)

So, nobody belongs at the unveiling of the 2015 F-150 more than an F-150 driver, and we invited Nate Meyer. Nate is an outdoorsman, husband, blogger and brand new dad, as well as a genuine F-150 fan. We brought Nate and his family to Toronto (they drove their F-150, naturally), put them up and gave Nate a pass to the official unveiling of the revolutionary 2015 F-150 at the Canadian International AutoShow, so he got to see it a full day before the public.

The high-strength, military-grade aluminium alloy takes the 2015 F-150 to a whole new level.

Watch the video above to see Nate’s reaction as he experiences a truck that is the first of its kind. It must have been pretty amazing: Imagine being one of the first Canadians to actually handle and climb into an all-new pre-production F-150! We were very excited to find out what a real-world F-150 driver thinks, and he has some pretty sharp observations.

We encourage you to drop by the Toronto AutoShow and check it out in person, but if you can’t, you can learn about the F-150 at Ford.ca. And we’ll be bringing it to Calgary, Edmonton and Vancouver in the spring, too. Smarter, lighter, faster, tougher: but those are our words. What do you think of the all-new 2015 F-150? Let us know in the comments.

*This is not a scientific assessment of the Stones’ actual toughness. They may in fact tow large objects. We are fairly certain that they are, however, not made of high-strength, military-grade aluminium alloy.
