Ford’s excellent F-150 arrived on the market in 1975 when the company wanted to span the gap between the venerable F-100 and F-250. The company will put the vehicle on diet, but still 2015 Ford F-150 will be one of the toughest trucks on the market. The frame of the newcomer will be made out of high-strength steel, while the cabin and box will be made out of aluminum. The vehicle will be offered with regular cabin, SuperCrew and SuperCab cabin styles, while boxes will be 8, 5.5, and 6.5 ft. To cut the long story short, let’s start with more details immediately.
2015 Ford F-150 Exterior
For the 2015 model year, Ford offers us a completely redesigned version of the F-150 with an unprecedented design language. Well, even the F-150 logo has been redesigned, so what else to say? The vehicle arrives with new high-strength, military-grade alloys which blend perfectly with the rest of the vehicle, and give it a powerful, and yet stylish look. Thanks to the new, high-end materials, the vehicle has lost weight, which will further enhance its performance, fuel efficiency, and acceleration.
The front end of the truck will sport a new three-bar grille and distinctive LED headlamps for enhanced night vision.
The well-known bumper section gets integrated LED fog lights. The rear end of the 2015 Ford F-150 also gets new taillights with LED technology. A more prominent spoiler has been added to the tailgate which is by the way electronic-operated.
