MEET THE GAME CHANGER – The New 2015 FORD F-150

MEET THE GAME CHANGER – The New 2015 FORD F-150
Did you know our F-150 is the #1 best- selling  vehicle in North America? It outsells everything!

 

Our F-Series full-size pick-up trucks have topped best-seller lists nearly every year for over six decades.  Who else can say this?  We’ve become known for making market-leading innovations to our trucks and you have responded by making the F-150 the best-selling vehicle here in Canada as well as the best-selling vehicle in the United States for the past 32 years. While that’s definitely something to be proud of, we’re not resting on our laurels and continue to innovate to ensure that our F-150 remains top of the line and well ahead of the competition!

What’s New in 2015 for F-150?
  • Aluminum – more than 90% of the cab and 100% of the bed is now made with a high-strength aluminum alloy
  • 15% (700 lbs) lighter in weight
  • 2.7L EcoBoost fuel-efficient engine
Why is this important?
  • This innovative aluminum alloy is lighter in weight but stronger and tougher than steel.
  • Improved fuel economy – 28-30 mpg (estimated highway) compared to 18-23 mpg in 2014.
  • A smaller yet still powerful engine that gets the job done.
Why are we calling our new F-150 “the GAME CHANGER”?

While the exterior of this truck is noticeably different than before, the most significant change is structural, with more than 90% of the cab and 100% of the bed being made of aluminum. And that’s not all, with the new F-150, we are also introducing the 2.7L EcoBoost engine, a revolutionary fuel-savings, emissions-conscious superstar.

Why aluminum?

Alan Mulally, President & CEO of Ford Motor Company, is a firm believer in the advantages of using high-strength military-grade aluminum alloys having built planes with these materials when he ran the aircraft division at Boeing.  While industry critics may say it’s a financial gamble to use high-cost aluminum so extensively throughout the body of a vehicle (typically, it’s only used in a small number of parts), his view is that while, pound for pound, aluminum is more expensive than steel, this cost impact is reduced because there are far fewer pounds required to make the finished product and the superior outcome is well worth the “gamble”.

With this stronger yet lighter material, the F-150 is 15% (700 lbs) lighter than before.  This translates into significant improvements in fuel economy (did you see the prices of gas today?) plus improved response time and handling due to the aerodynamic benefits of a lighter vehicle.

Why the 2.7L EcoBoost®?

The 2.7L EcoBoost turbo V6 engine is unique for a pick-up but has proven to be highly popular on our F-150.  This second-generation engine brings EcoBoost technology to a new level with the 2.7L engine achieving great low-end torque and capability combined with efficiency.  It has proven to be a stellar performer in heavy-duty industries such as mining and construction.

But we’re not finished yet!
Here are additional new features you’ll find on this year’s F-150:
  • High-tech outside mirrors equipped with cameras
  • LED headlamps
  • A bigger centre console – with optional 360 degree camera view and a newer, beefier 400 watt power outlet so you can easily charge tools
