2015 Ford F-150 Specs

2015-ford-f150-specs.jpgThe F-150 has always been prized for its ability to haul, tow, climb, and endure as well as any pickup on the market. The newest F-150 is no different, and thanks to some impressive powertrain upgrades, this is easily the most capable build Ford has ever produced:

  • 3.5L V6: The new model features a strong base engine capable of 283 hp and 255 lb-ft of torque.

  • 2.7L Turbo V6: Thanks to advanced turbocharging technology, this smaller engine can stay efficient while producing a hefty 325 hp and 375 lb-ft of torque.

  • 5.0L V8: This big, naturally aspirating V8 gives drivers access to a solid 385 hp and 387 lb-ft of torque.

  • 3.5L Turbo V6: This bigger turbo V6 produces 365 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque.

  • Transmissions: All engines come with a six-speed automatic transmission that can be switched between sport and tow/haul modes.

  • Towing Capacity: Towing capacity starts at 7600 pounds and ranges all the way up to 12,200 pounds

  • Payload: There's no need to worry about carrying a big load in your bed as the F-150 can take a payload of up to 3300 pounds.


2015 Ford F-150 Aluminum

2015-ford-f150-aluminum.jpgThat all-new 2015 Ford F-150 might not look drastically different than the previous 2014 Ford F-150, but that is because the most radical change is built into the very structure of the truck. Light-weight and durable aluminum is now being used in the construction, which shaves almost 700 pounds off the overall weight.

That makes the vehicle far more fuel efficient, and thanks to smart engineering and careful design, the performance and capabilities of the vehicle haven't declined at all. Imagine doing everything you do with the truck you have now but getting this as high as 19 mpg city and 26 mpg on the highway.

2015 Ford F-150 Reviews

2015-ford-f150-reviews.jpgWhen the plans for the 2015 Ford F-150 were first announced, it caused quite a stir from the automotive press. But once the reviews started coming out, it was clear that Ford's bold changes were a visionary decision:

  • Edmunds: "The redesigned 2015 Ford F-150 may not look all that different, but those familiar lines disguise what is unquestionably the most sophisticated and capable version of this best-selling pickup ever to hit the road."
  • Car and Driver: "The smallest six-cylinder pulls confidently low in the rev range and offers exceptional refinement in terms of noise, vibration, and power delivery."
