The road ahead is full of uncertainty. You can never anticipate all of the potholes or turns ahead, but you can choose the dependable truck to get you through any adversity on the open road. Choose the Ford F-150.

The F-150 has earned its reputation over the years as a better truck, a truck to depends on when the going gets tough because it was built with stronger to withstand more. The 2015 F-150 is no different, and the proud legacy continues on.

No matter how extreme the twists and turns, the ruts and ridges, the F-150 powers through, while within the cab the ride is smooth and deceptively quiet. With the best payload in its class and the only contender with fully flat load floor, you can carry more when it is down to the wire.

Put the Ford F-150 through your own tests here at our dealership in Wheaton, MD. Choose the best truck around that doesn’t take no for an answer.

Anyone who ever doubted that the Ford F-150 was going to last as America’s number one pickup truck, is going to feel really foolish after they see this video we are bringing to you today. Specs for the new 2015 F-150 have finally arrived and it seems as though our favorite automaker is once again setting the pace of development in the consumer truck category.

What it really comes down to is the 700 lb. weight reduction that the 2015 F-150 model has received thanks to an increased use of lightweight aluminum. That, and of course the addition of a 2.7-liter EcoBoost® V6 engine that can deliver performance above and beyond the capability of many V8s.

See what happens when it is stacked against the competition:

The 2015 F-150 is set to arrive here at Lindsay Ford later this Fall, be sure to get in and learn all the details ahead of time by visiting our showroom and speaking with our staff.

2015_ford_f150_blog

  • 2015 Ford F-150 has more new Ford technology patents and/or patent applications than any truck in Ford history, offering customers innovative technologies throughout – everything from the tailgate to the front end
  • All-new F-150 boasts more than 100 new Ford patents and/or patent applications, making this vehicle a benchmark for new technologies in Ford’s storied history of truck leadership
  • A Ford-developed heat treatment method for aluminum alloy nearly doubles the strength of the material, helping achieve better dent and ding resistance while reducing weight

From its tailgate step to the LED spotlights found on the side mirrors, the next-generation 2015 Ford F-150’s new features and technologies make it the most patented truck in company history.

“The all-new F-150 is loaded with innovation,” said Alana Strager, Ford program analyst charged with tracking new innovations for the 2015 truck. “Ford engineers filed more than 100 new patents for technologies on this truck as they have worked to redefine the light-duty pickup for the next generation.”

Patents and patent applications abound for state-of-the-art technologies covering new features and breakthroughs that will benefit customers of the all-new 2015 F-150. The scope of these innovations includes every part of the truck – body, exterior, interior, chassis, design, electrical and engine – as well as its manufacturing processes.

Patenting a smarter truck

Examples of Ford’s state-of-the-art technologies on the new 2015 F-150 include segment-exclusive LED spotlights found on the side mirrors, innovative remote tailgate release and smart trailer tow features that make towing easier.

  • Innovative LED side-mirror spotlights allow customers to illuminate the side of the vehicle for tasks from setting up a campsite to changing a tire

  • Remote tailgate release automatically lowers the tailgate with the push of a button on the key fob – a first for a pickup truck

  • Ford’s pioneering tailgate step has been completely reengineered so it fully integrates into the tailgate, making it virtually invisible when not in use. The tailgate drops down into position in one easy motion. The grab handle is now housed inside the tailgate, which keeps the inner surface of the tailgate uniformly flat

  • BoxLink cargo management system includes lockable, die-cast aluminum tie-down cleats, and provides a unique interface to the box for improved flexibility and organization, as well as additional locations for tie-downs. Available segment-first cargo ramps can be stowed on the sides of the pickup box via the BoxLink system and mounted quickly on the tailgate to enable easy loading of ATVs, motorcycles or mowers

Other smart features never offered before on a Ford pickup include 360-degree camera view, integrated loading ramps stowed in the pickup bed, 400-watt power outlets inside the cab and LED headlights.

Patenting toughness

Mounted on an exceptionally strong and well-proven high-strength steel frame, the all-new Ford F-150 incorporates the latest high-strength, military-grade, aluminum alloys to form the body and cargo box.

The aluminum is heat-treated using a proprietary method developed by Ford engineers that nearly doubles the strength of the metal. Ford is first in the auto industry to use this methodology.

Additionally, Ford engineers have filed patent applications for spot welding methods, adhesives and hydroforming this first-of-its-kind truck.

“Ford is teaching the world how to build a next-generation truck, and the more than 100 patents filed by the F-150 team for technologies on the 2015 truck further proves these Ford engineers and designers lead the automotive industry in innovation,” said Strager.
