Meet the First Owner of a 2015 Ford F-150

Ford has introduced us to the first owner of a 2015 Ford F-150. This real world test drive shows the performance capabilities of the F-150, along with the consistency of the EcoBoost Engine.

The first owner is Brian Schober, a systems engineer for military vehicle testing in Yuma, Arizona. Schober drove his all-new F-150 through many off-road excursions in the Arizona desert. He tore this F-150 through rock crawls, sand washes and suspension challenges in temperatures exceeding 100 degrees, and came out sold on the all-new truck.

“I work at the U.S. Army proving grounds where I drive approximately 350 miles a day on gravel and dirt roads, hauling parts and people. I’ve gone through my fair share of vehicles,” said Schober. “We currently rent a 2013 F-150 and consider it a workhorse. With a new F-150 on my radar for my next vehicle, the 2015 looks like it will do the trick.”

The 2015 Ford F-150 may be the most highly anticipated truck of all time. Ford has rebuilt it inside and out for maximum comfort, fuel economy and performance. It starts with its all-aluminium body, making it 70 percent lighter than previous models.

New engine choices under the hood give you the choice of what you need — better fuel economy without sacrificing your power.

LED lighting is another high point of the all-new F-150. LED lighting is an available option on the headlights, cargo box, and tailgate handle. There will also be an available LED switch on the bed, giving you extra light when completing business in the dark.

The F-150 is also smarter than ever, with a number of new TruckApps. One new App, Smart Trailer Control, will inform the driver if a trailer being towed has burnt-out lights, or if the trailer lights are even functional.

There’s so much to learn about the new F-150, visit the Waikem Blog for all the details of the new truck.
