Ford reveals concept trucks that ultimately became Atlas
April 3, 2013
by Zach Bowman

The Ford Atlas Concept was one of the quiet success stories of the 2013 Detroit Auto Show, and now Ford has given us a quick glimpse as to how that creation came to be. Designers actually combined two early sketches to build the Atlas. One, called the Bullet Train, is a futuristic, aerodynamic creation, while the other, aptly named the Locomotive, features the squared off proportions we're familiar with.

Thanks, N.R.

*LOVE* developmental renderings!!
hope they hung onto all the work done for the bullet-train
not right for the F-150 but PERFECT imho for an F-100...

lots of snippets relating to other designs too:
- Start concept scoopy grille
- MKC's metal rocker accent
- super-squinty Fusion HLs
- Buick-porthole hood-louvres...

...oh wait

Love the look of a Ford Truck. They look like they are made to work.

The Atlas Concept looked super hot and I hope they use a lot of the design cues for the next f series trucks.

Some items like the wheel thingies would never make it, IMHO I think there is always room for improvement.

What Ford needs to work on are the mpg's and try to get the most out of every drop of gas. If that means cylinder deactivation then do it but not making the truck or driver suffer.
