The All-New Ford F-150
JAN
13

Meet the all-new 2015 Ford F-150. Now, before you fret that someone messed with what has made the pickup a best-seller for more than 30 years, know that “all-new” in this case simply meant building upon what has worked for decade after decade. It meant building a tougher, smarter and more capable F-150.

The new F-150 features four available engines, including a new, compact 2.7-liter EcoBoost® with standard Auto Start-Stop, which helps save fuel because the engine shuts off when the vehicle is stopped, except when towing or in four-wheel drive. It joins a 3.5-liter V6 as well as the 3.5-liter EcoBoost and 5.0-liter V8. EcoBoost engines feature standard Active Grille Shutters, which stay open for additional engine cooling, such as during low-speed stop-and-go driving.

Another key change has to do with an all-new, fully boxed ladder frame with more high-strength steel to make it stronger yet lighter. In fact, For the first time, high-strength, military-grade, aluminum alloys are used throughout the F-150 body.

Features such as an available 360-degree rear camera, integrated loading ramps, BoxLink™ for securing accessories in the cargo box, remote tailgate to allow the tailgate to be locked, unlocked or released with the key fob, LED head- and taillamps, dynamic trailer hitch assist, an integrated tailgate step and a host of driver-assist technologies, such as Adaptive Cruise Control and Curve Control, which offers more aggressive braking if the truck goes into a corner too fast, are among the technologies and innovations. Tons of storage and utility/comfort features are also onboard.

And even the badging got a freshening; 23 designs were eyeballed, but the one selected offers a larger “F” to accent the F-Series name, and the font is Ford-designed and called “Bold Leadership.”

Five primary trims will be available: XL, XLT, Lariat, Platinum and King Ranch. Chrome appearance packages will be available with XL, XLT, Lariat and King Ranch. Monochromatic sport appearance packages are available with XL, XLT and Lariat. The FX4 off-road package can be added to most four-wheel-drive models.

Ron Clayton The feature of opening and shutting grills is usually to assist / maintain warmup which is not described here. This technology is decades old but a big help for heater performance.

Mark C With all of the attention going to the aluminum and other big additions, a couple of other changes that will really benefit those of us who are getting a little older and have less mobility have not been highlighted: 1) the return of the driver's side a-pillar grab handle; and 2) 2-1/2 inches more leg room in the front. Thanks Ford, I'll be an early adopter!

Jim S Great job Ford. In years to come, if most cars and trucks are using high-strength aluminum alloy and high-strength, light-weight steel, then the F150 would have taken trucks into a bold new direction. Any idea if the 2015 Ford F150 was considered for the 2014 North America Truck of the Year which GM's Silverado won.

The F-150 is too damn big; especially for those of us living in larger citys like Southern California.  It is a complete bear to park; I've got a 96 explorer which need to be replaced; preferably with a truck.  Sadly the discontinutation of your Ranger line has me looking at the Toyota Tacoma which has essentially remained unchanged in terms of engine or trans technology since 2005.  A V6 4x4 Access Cab Tacoma, while the perfect size for us city dwellers gets 16 City/ 19 Hwy mpg. That's at a curb weight of 4,100 lbs. An F1-150 4x4 with ecoboost gets 15 City / 21 Hwy mpg. Despite a curb weight of 5,600 lb A 2011 4wd Supercab Ranger had a curb weight of 3,700 lb.  That's 2000 less than the F-150. If you revived the Ranger line, sticking in it the f-150 innovations (Eco-boost, 6 speed trans); You would have a 4x4 truck that could be pulling 25 City/30 Hwy Mpg and could out-haul the current F150. I undestand all of the reasons why you left the small/mid size truck market;  It's dwindling, the plant closed, the F-150 is everything the Ranger is an more.  But a 4x4 truck that can pullover 25mpg on gasoline is something significant and would beat the heck out of anything coming out of Toyota.  In 2011 you sold 70k rangers to 110k Tacoma's In 2012 you sold 19k Rnagers to 141k Tacomas It's in-arguable that the decision to stop producing the ranger has allowed some market share to be absorbed by Toyota. I'm no expert, but all the new F-150 tech in a slightly smaller package would result in what's probably the best small truck on the market. As it stands, I am seriously considering getting a eco-boost crate motor and new trans and sticking it in a old F-100 body.  That gets me a small truck with phenominal gas mileage that can likely out tow the current F-150 while still being able to park in a big city. I'd love to buy a new Ford; you guys are on the bleeding edge of technology.  But the package it's in (The F-150) is just too damn big to be functional in city life.  Short of Reviving the ranger, my only option is to take the new tech and stuff it in an old shell.  Thanks for reading.
