    2015 Ford F-150 To Start At $26,615*


    • We Get Some Idea Of Ford's Pricing For The 2015 F-150

    Ford dealers are beginning to take orders for the 2015 F-150 this week and some pricing information has come out. The 2015 model will start at $26,615 with destination for the base XL, only $395 more than the current model. The F-150 XL will come equipped with a 3.5L V6 making 283 horsepower and 255 pound-feet of torque. Optional will be the 2.7 EcoBoost V6 with 325 horsepower and 375 pound-feet of torque for only $495, and the 3.5 EcoBoost which costs $1,995.

    Next up is the F-150 XLT which now starts at $31,925, up $395 from the previous XLT. Then there is the Lariat, King Ranch, and Platinum F-150 models. Those models begin at $39,730 for the Lariat, $49,690 for the King Ranch, and $52,950 for the Platinum.

    A spokesperson tells Automobile Magazine that certain F-150 models such as the STX, FX2, FX4, and Limited will disappear with the next-generation, there will be packages available that will fill those needs.

    We'll have more on pricing and model lineup in the coming weeks.

    Cheap truck that gives you less and costs you more. I agree with Consumer reports that RAM is a superior buy over Ford or Toyota.

    You can get the big motors for not much of an up charge in almost any and every trim which is very impressive.  An XL with the $500 2.7T option looks like a huge bargain.  325 hp, 385 ftlbs of torque over a broad flat curve and a curb weight of about 4950 pounds would be a very impressive and reasonably priced pickup, well under 30k.  The 2.7 is supposed to be an extremely durable motor from what I've read.  I bet it get's very impressive real world mileage when it's not towing, probably approaching 30 highway when unloaded.

    It's a totally new block, check out this link http://www.autoguide.com/auto-news/2014/02/inside-fords-new-2015-f-150.html

     

    It shares the traits of the cyclone v6, the duratech family and even the scorpion v8 TDI.  It's also been torture tested pretty thoroughly according to this article. There are a few other articles I read with similar information but I can't find them at the moment.

    Also check this out regarding the 2.7T and it's claimed performance in the new F150.  Ford claims it would out perform the Ram 3.0 diesel or GM 5.3 v8 towing a 7000lb trailer up a grade.  It should be interesting to see if this proves true.  lots of other good details here. http://www.fordinsidenews.com/forums/showthread.php?37242-All-New-Ford-F-150-2-7L-EcoBoost-V6-Engine-VIDEO

    My past experience with Ford Turbo Engines has not been good so while interesting, I will wait to see if these engines truly can hold up and not be Fix Or Repair Daily Engines. Right now I will take a solid LS V8 over the 4 or 6 bangers that are turbo charged.

    I wonder how much a reg cab shortbed XL Sport 4X4 with the teeny tiny 2.7L will run in money.  I do like that Guard color.

     

    See now... pretty much every trim level of F-150 is available with Sport and FX packages.  Ram has their Express budget and Sport uplevel packages... Chevrolet has NOTHING.  The new Silvys are old man trucks!  And I cannot stand it!

    I'm just mad because of the relatively extreme conservatism in the new Silverado's design.  I still love Chevy trucks, I just wish for more.  The only young "ish" trim package they have is the Z71, and that comes with so much extra BS, it prices itself out of reach of too many potential buyers.

    I would agree, the total auto industry thinks the core marketing message is to sell fully loaded everything and that everyone will buy it. They need to focus on 3 markets, the youth, mid life and retirement. Then they will accomplish much.

      When Chevrolet announced the 2017 Bolt's range last week, they hinted that the model would have a price tag of under $37,500 and would qualify for the maximum $7,500 tax credit. Today, Chevrolet announced the starting price for the Bolt will be $37,495 when it arrives at dealers later this year. The company is quick to point out that the price drops to $29,995 once you add in the $7,500 federal tax credit. But we need to stress that this tax credit cannot be used during the purchase of the Bolt, so you're still paying the $37,495.

      The base Bolt LT will come equipped with a regen-on-demand steering wheel paddle, 10.2-inch touchscreen, backup camera, and more. Premier models feature leather upholstery, heated front and rear seats, surround view camera, and the rear camera mirror. Chevrolet hasn't announced pricing for Premier at this time.

      DETROIT – The Chevrolet Bolt EV set the range benchmark for an affordable EV capable of going the distance by offering an EPA-rated 238 miles on a full charge. Now, Chevrolet is keeping its promise to offer the Bolt EV at an affordable price by confirming a base Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price of $37,495 including destination charge. Depending on individual tax situations, customers may receive an available federal tax credit of up to $7,500 for a net value of $29,995.
      “Value is a hallmark for Chevrolet and the pricing of the Bolt EV proves we’re serious about delivering the first affordable EV with plenty of range for our customers,” said Alan Batey, president of GM North America and leader of Global Chevrolet. “We have kept our promise yet again, first on range and now on price.”
      Bolt EV buyers will find range, cargo space, technology and safety features standard in a great vehicle with crossover proportions. The thrill of driving an EV, along with the sales and service support of a nationwide network of Bolt EV certified Chevrolet dealers, makes the Bolt EV a smart buy for any customer.
      The well-equipped LT trim starts at $37,495 and comes with standard features that include, among others, Regen on Demand™ steering wheel paddle, rear vision camera, 10.2-inch diagonal color touch screen and MICHELIN™ Self-sealing tires (in certain circumstances). The top trim Premier includes all LT equipment plus additional standard features such as leather-appointed seats, front and rear heated seats, surround camera and rear camera mirror. Pricing includes destination and freight charges and excludes tax, title, license and dealer fees. The Bolt EV will be available at select dealerships in late 2016.

      While Ford is introducing an updated 3.5L EcoBoost V6 and ten-speed automatic for the 2017 F-150, the 2018 F-150 is more interesting to us. This is because Ford will be giving their full-size truck a facelift and a diesel engine. Thanks to Car and Driver, we're able to get a closer look via a set of spy shots.
      We'll begin with the facelift. Ford has done a decent job with the camouflage, but we can pick out a new grille design that seems to mimic the F-Series super duty. Expect new headlights, along with new taillights and wheel choices.
      We have reported previously on the venturi exhaust and a video with the noises of a diesel engine . Now we have more proof of the diesel engine. Thanks to a Ford engineer leaving the hood open, we have gotten our first clear look at the diesel engine. We can't tell much about the engine aside from there being a mess of hoses and wires. You might be asking how we know this is a diesel. Two key items give it away; a diesel fuel inlet behind the fuel filler door and a sign taped inside saying"Diesel Fuel Only!"
      Everyone believes the diesel engine in question is a 3.0L turbodiesel V6 that is used in the Range Rover and Range Rover Sport TD6 models. This engine produces 254 horsepower and 440 pound-feet of torque.
