Here at Randall Reed’s Planet Ford in Spring (also serving The Woodlands, Aldine, Conroe and the greater Houston area), we are anxiously waiting for the arrival of the all-new 2015 Ford F-150.
In the new F-150 model, you will see an array of both minor and major changes, both inside and outside of the vehicle. All of the added features and enhancements may make this the best F-150 yet. We’ve created a brief video and accompanying list of a few new features to take note of on the 2015 F-150.
Under the Hood
The 2015 F-150 features a newly designed 2.7L EcoBoost engine complete with a compacted graphite iron block. This extremely strong engine block is also found in Ford’s 6.7L PowerStroke diesel engine. This revamped engine was also designed with automatic start/stop technology, variable-displacement oil pump, and stronger yet lighter connecting rods Though there are other engine options available, the 2.7L EcoBoost comes standard on the 2015 F-150.
The newest addition to the F-150 family showcases a state-of-the-art, military-grade aluminum alloy that is used to create the body, cab, and truck bed. The aluminum alloy replaces a steel body, resulting in 700 lbs. less weight than 2014 model. Fear not, the new F-150 is still Built Ford Tough. The aluminum alloy used is incredibly strong and the truck frame is still made of high-strength steel. This combo yields an efficient yet powerful truck. The exterior also hosts LED box lighting and LED spotlight mirrors for improved vision during dusk, dawn, or anytime in between.
The dashboard has received an elegant makeover and is outfitted with high-quality materials. Inside the cab, you’ll find 400 Watt power plugs for quick charging access as well as LCD screen that feeds video from the exterior mounted 4-camera monitoring system (great for tight spaces, job sites, and trails). The dash also features a 8-inch LCD productivity display mounted in the instrument panel, providing instant access to driving statistics and other relevant information.
With features like these, it’s hard to not be excited about what the 2015 F-150 has in store. You can look for the 2015 F-150 in late 2014 at Planet Ford on I-45, alongside your other favorite Ford models like the Focus, Fusion or Mustang.
