    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.  

    Thanks for the post, very interesting about the engine indeed.

    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.

      The rivalry of the Chevrolet Camaro and Ford Mustang has been going for ages in the U.S. But now this fight has expanded into China.
      Automotive News reports that a growing group of Chinese buyers are being drawn towards to these models as the exude the no-apologies Americana attitude.
      "We're seeing the beginning of a muscle car culture here. Something that is uniquely American appeals to the Chinese consumer. The image that it relays to the automotive public is very positive," said James Chao, a China market auto analyst with IHS Markit.
      Sales of both models are small with Chevrolet only moving 2,000 Camaros since its launch 2011. Ford is doing slightly better with 6,200 Mustangs sold since its launch in 2015. In the first quarter, Mustang sales saw a 90 percent increase to 963 vehicles. Part of the reason for the slow sales comes down to the price. The Camaro starts about 399,900 yuan (about $58,000) - more than double of the base price of $26,900 in the U.S. The Mustang isn't that far behind, costing about $15 dollars less. Prices are increased due to a 25 percent import tariff on U.S. made vehicles, homologation and shipping fees, and Chinese buyers trending to splurge on higher-time models.
      But despite the low sales, the Camaro and Mustang are bringing buyers to dealers. These models act as eye candy to help draw shoppers into showrooms with the hope they'll purchase a vehicle, where it be the eye candy or something a little less exciting.

      Hey-o,
      I haven't really started a running thread for the new car yet so here it is. I think I owned the car for 8 days when I had my windows tinted 20% all the way around. I cannot stand driving a car w/o tint or the look of a vehicle w/o tint.
      This is about the only "before" picture I have of it.

      Only a few days and $270 later...
      There was actually one thing I bought prior to buying a car that I wanted in my next vehicle... a dash cam. After the accident and knowing that had I not had a witness stop and give their side of the story it could have been a hell hole of he-said she-said.. So I did a little research and bought a Spytec A119 w/ the GPS(you can get it w/o the GPS). Super clean and muuuuch easier install than I expected. The only wires exposed are coming from the center console down and then again from the headliner to the cam itself. The rest is completely hidden.


      A view from the driver's seat... I don't see it at all. That's exactly what I wanted to keep it from being a distraction.

      A view from the outside. It's very difficult to see.

      This past week I finally ordered and received my wheels and tires. This is the first vehicle I've ever actually gone through with changing them as I've always wanted to on all of my vehicles.
      I went with a 18x8 Konig Oversteer wrapped in a 225/45ZR18 Continental ExtremeContact DW. I'll be using the OE setup for the winter months.
      I'll get better pictures of the wheels when I get home.

      OE wheel/tire combo = 47lbs

      New wheel/tire combo = 42.5lbs

       
      I think the only other thing that I would really like to do is wrap the chrome door outline in black or a black chrome.

      If the Volkswagen diesel emission scandal hasn't swayed you from wanting one, then you'll be happy to hear Volkswagen will once again be able to sell brand-new 2015 model year TDI models. Green Car Reports says near 11,000 TDI models will soon be back up for sale once they are updated with new software, making them legal.
      Volkswagen does caution those interested in picking up a new TDI to call their nearest dealership to see if they have any in stock.
      But that's not all. Volkswagen is offering some massive discounts on these models. CarsDirect reports that Volkswagen is offering 0% APR for up to 72 months and $5,000 cash bonus if you decide to buy. Interested in leasing one? Volkswagen will offer a cash bonus of $8,500. 
      There are a couple of caveats to this offer. First, you need to have an excellent credit history to qualify for either offer. Second is that Volkswagen isn't advertising this offer.
      "We will not be advertising the available incentives from our financing arm as they [sic] vehicle availability will vary per dealership," said Volkswagen spokeswoman Jeannine Ginivan.
