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.

Obviously, Ford has many vehicles that we want and they all would serve a different purpose depending on what you need it for.  I would love to have several vehicles as well as keep those as current as I can, but money, space, etc. limit what I can do.  If a new leasing program were to be created, combining a traditional lease with a car rental mentaility, I could get on board with that.  My regular lease would be a Fusion for instance, but I can borrow a Mustang or F-150 for a week.  Maybe do a lease by a point system, were depending on which vehicle you have, takes a certain amount of points.  This way we have access to pretty much the whole fleet of Ford vehicles under one lease program.
