BEHIND THE STICKER PRICE
2015 FORD F-150
We know it is millennial cool to NOT own a car and to rely on UBER. But, with the recent backlash against UBER by cities and states maybe you should consider owning a vehicle. And, if not a car, we suggest you take a close look at the all new 2015 Ford F-150.
TEN THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT THIS AMERICAN ICON
- F-150 can tow 12,200 pounds and haul 3,300 pounds.
- 360-degree camera view uses exterior cameras to create a bird’s-eye view of the truck to help drivers park, maneuver in tight spots, and navigate narrow roads and trails.
- Integrated loading ramps enable easy loading of ATVs, motorcycles and mowers.
- Trailer hitch assist adds a new rearview camera feature that incorporates a dynamic line based on steering wheel angle in the display to help customers line up their truck and trailer with no spotter or need to exit the vehicle.
- Remote tailgate allows for tailgate to be locked, unlocked and released with the key fob.
- Five primary trims are available, and include XL, XLT, Lariat, Platinum and King Ranch.
- The FX4 off-road package can be added to most four-wheel-drive models, improving trail capability with an electronic locking rear axle, skid plates and off-road-tuned shocks.
- Use of LED technology in F-150 headlamps picks up on lighting trends in smartphones, tablet computers and TVs.
- The debut of standard Auto Start-Stop technology in the F-150. This technology, specially tuned for truck customers, shuts off the engine when the vehicle is at a stop – except when towing or in four-wheel drive.
- Driver friendly features include a tailgate step large enough to fit a full-size work boot, raised tactile keypad buttons for keyless entry, and finger indents on the back of the steering wheel.
