The 2015 Ford F-150 is one of 12 vehicles competing for the 2015 North American Truck/Utility of the Year Award. This may be the most anticipated truck to ever arrive in Little Detroit, so we believe it has to be one of the favorites to take home the gold in January.
Ford has spent the past year hyping this truck, which is set to debut in late 2014. We first saw it at the 2014 Cleveland Auto Show and immediately fell in love. The main highlight of the all-new Ford is its all-aluminum body. Military-grade aluminum helped reduce 700 pounds from this year’s model, meaning more towing, hauling and better fuel economy.
The F-150 is also improved under the hood, including four new engines: 2.7 liter EcoBoost V6; 3.5 liter V6; 5.0 liter V8 and 3.5 liter EcoBoost V6 are among your engine choices.
The Ford F-150 is designed for anyone and everyone who needs a truck, from the weekend warrior to 80-hour per week construction worker. Innovations include new LED lights attached to the driver’s side mirrors for extra flashlights when you’re working at night. An LED puddle light on the tailgate is going to make it easier than ever to attach your trailer at night. There are also additional lights in the bed so you’ll have plenty of light for any jobs.
Ford is also bringing its active park assist to the F-150, automatically fitting the F-150 into any tight spots. The new F-150 also has optional massaging seats, the perfect end to a hard day’s work.
The 2015 North American Truck/SUV of Year Award is voted on a by self-funded, independent and non-profit jury of automotive writers who will now spend quality time behind the wheel of all ten nominees. The list will be whittled down to three vehicles later this year, and a grand prize winner will be announced in January’s Detroit Auto Show
This may be the most anticipated launch in truck history, so there’s no reason to think the F-150 won’t be a serious contender for the trophy. Learn more about the model and contact us when you’re ready to be one of the first to take this amazing truck on a test drive.
