Concept car: Truck's toolbox overflows with options



Ford Atlas
Ford debuted this truck concept at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit last month. Designed to accommodate a wide variety of trucking needs, it includes 110-volt electrical outlets in the cargo box to charge power tools, a roof carrying system, hidden extendable ramps, "floating" instrument pods, and glove-friendly buttons and controls. Fuel-saving features include grille shutters that open during low-speed driving and close during highway speeds, and power running boards that tuck up against the truck when it's on the go.
