GM rumored to build full-sized pickup truck

Reuters reports that General Motors will be working towards an aluminum-bodied pickup truck by late 2018.

This comes after pressure from the federal government to improve fuel efficiency standards.

According to their story, GM recently locked-in contracts with two suppliers to increase their aluminum sheet production to supply the next-generation GM pickup.

Right now, aluminum is in such high demand that the companies need to order it years in advance, Reuters said.
