Until recently we only had reports and rumors about the possible price of the 2015 Ford F-150. After a lot of waiting and speculations we are finally getting official details about price but also about the specs for the all-new 2.7 liter EcoBoost V6 unit that will be offered in this model.
When it comes to the price we did expect to see an increase, which is quite normal when new model that has been heavily redesigned is offered. Price changes even between model years and now it happens because of this and many other things. Even before the 2015 Ford F-150 was announced we could hear reports and rumors about weight reduction and that come to be the truth, with improved technology and changes in this segment we were sure that price will change significantly.
Weight reduction has been achieved with usage of aluminum but also other lightweight materials. As a result we will have improvements in all segments, fuel economy, efficiency, handling, performances and similar. It is obvious that these improvements need to be paid and now we can see that the price increase will be from $395 to $3,515 depending on the trim level that is chosen.
2015 Ford F-150 Price
What we know so far is that the 2015 Ford F-150 XL model will cost $26,615 and compared to 2014 model in this trim level that was priced at $25,025. Other models for which we received price include: Ford F-150 XLT that comes with price tag of $31,890, Lariat model for $39,880, King Ranch trim for $49,460 and the Platinum version of $52,155.
Looking at the list of available engines we can easily say that Ford will manage to satisfy most drivers with te offer. Four units will come to the market and biggest news is the 2.7 liter V6 EcoBoost units that is refined with twin turbo and capable of delivering 325 hp and impressive 375 lb-ft of torque. These figures will allow you to easily tow any load but also to achieve pretty good fuel economy. Even MPG rates are still not offered we do expect to see it as one of the class leaders and the start stop system is something that will certainly help out here.
Specs Of 2015 Ford F-150
Other engines that we will have include base 3.5 liter V6 unit that produces 283 hp and 255 lb-ft of torque. More power is delivered by larger EcoBoost unit with 3.5 liter displacement and V6 arrangement. This unit pumps out 365 hp at 5000 rpm and 420 lb-ft of torque at 2500 rpm. At the launch the 2015 Ford F-150 will also come with well-known 5.0 liter V8 unit that produces 360 hp at 5500 rpm and 380 lb-ft of torque at 4250 rpm. There could be few more additions to this lineup as the special editions are delivered in the months after the launch.
There is no doubt that with all these changes and improvements the 2015 Ford F-150 will be one of the leaders on the market just like it was the case with its predecessors. It will be interesting to see the response from competitors that also managed to achieve great sale results in previous years.
