Raj Nair, Ford's group vice president of global product development, said: "Obviously, we did a lot of the advanced engineering work when Jaguar was part of the fold. And so we have a lot of experience."
Ford sold Jaguar and Land Rover to Tata Motors Ltd. of India in 2008.
Nair was interviewed at the North American International Auto Show last week after the redesigned pickup was unveiled to the press.
Steel bodies of the current F-150 are constructed with spot welds. While the construction process of the redesigned model is different, Ford said other manufacturing aspects of the pickup stay the same.
For instance, Jim deVries, Ford's global manager of materials and manufacturing research, said the number of body parts used in the 2014 F-150's steel cab is comparable to the number used in the 2015 aluminum cab.
He also said the manufacturing footprint of the assembly line will remain about the same.
Last week Ford executives doled out limited information about how the company will assemble the redesigned pickup. Ford spokesman Mike Levine said Ford will reveal how it will build the pickups later this year.
The Range Rover SUV uses 3,722 rivets, of which there are 17 types, and 528 feet of adhesive to hold together the body's 403 parts.
The 2015 F-150, The New York Times reported, will use about 4,000 rivets instead of the 7,000 spot welds used in the current pickup.
While rivet guns will replace spot welders on the assembly line -- and add complexity -- other areas of the manufacturing, such as painting, could be simplified. For instance, the current pickup uses a steel body and aluminum hood, which complicates the paint drying process.
