The 2015 Ford F-150 completely redesigned. New build F – 150 is one of the automotive jobs that separates the big – boy designers and engineers from the posers . It’s just an arrogant group believes that compete for the honor of not messing up almost four decades of truck sales leadership with new 2015 Ford F – 150 . While the Mustang keeper legacy and future Fusion writes , F – 150 is the model that fills the halls of Ford with sound money .
Seen from F – 150 spy shots and speculative information , Ford did not play around with a good thing . The automaker launched the Atlas concept last year and received an enthusiastic response from both the writer and the people who need trucks for heavy lifting . Production F – 150 seems to carry more than a few grille aggressive Atlas ‘ and the same lamp design , though more exaggerated features of this concept – the bulging fenders , for example – to soften the look of this production model .
Ford will probably save heroic designs for other models and instead focus on the more critical areas F – 150 ‘s . A wider use of aluminum frame and the bed , for example , will help reduce truck weight and improve fuel economy , if not the base model starting price . Active grille and wheel windows closed at high speeds to improve aerodynamics is Atlas features that could make it to production models , such as the nifty trailer hitch to help guide the use of targeting the rearview camera screen to help line up the ball and hitch .
When V8 5.0 – liter The F – 150 to be carried , along with a twin – turbocharged 3.5 – liter V6 . The latter makes 365 horsepower and 420 pound – feet of torque , more than the V8 on both counts . In our tests , the current V6 motivated rear-drive F – 150 from zero to 60 mph in 6.5 seconds , and help achieve the EPA – an estimated 18 mpg combined . Flow 3.7 – liter V6 also get carried away and joined , or replaced , by a smaller , turbocharged V6 makes about 300 hp .
Ford requires F – 150 to make a strong statement in a competitive segment . The current model is showing its age as rivals like the Ram 1500 gives a more luxurious cabin , and the Chevrolet Silverado and the Toyota Tundra comes with a revamped design and features .
About the only thing you can guarantee is damaging the inclusion of MyFord Touch infotainment clunky interface , we can only hope , come with the operating system that is much better .
