Ford Redefines the Future of Trucks with New 2015 F-150

Ford Motor Company is looking to take the truck market by surprise with the new 2015 F-150 set to release later this year. We were able to get a first hand look at the King Ranch Edition to see the stylish new design and “smart” upgrades. From Grill to Tailgate, the 2015 F-150 is an entirely new truck right down to its signature all new fully boxed ladder frame, built with more high-strength steel than ever to make it stronger yet lighter. For the first time, high-strength, military-grade, aluminum alloys are used throughout the F-150 body. These alloys, already used in aerospace, commercial transportation and other industries, make the new truck’s body lighter, stronger and more resistant to dents. Overall, the F-150 is up to 700 pounds lighter, helping the truck tow and haul more, accelerate and stop faster, and operate more efficiently.

F-150 is well-known for being Built Ford Tough,” said Mark Fields, Ford Motor Company chief operating officer. “Now, it is both Tough and Smart.
