    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.

      As more consumers head over to crossovers and SUVs, automakers find themselves making changes to their lineup. Case in point is Ford which is considering dropping some of their nameplates because of the change in demand.
      “Over time, there should be some pruning of the portfolio to support growth in other areas. Clearly we’re going to invest in growing the SUV portfolio. We certainly intend to have a strong car base as well; we don’t know where the market’s going to go. But there will be some pruning over time as there should be in a nameplate and portfolio,” said Joe Hinrichs, Ford president of the Americas.
      Ford's car sales are down 14 percent through November with sedans being the big losers.
      Fiesta: Down 26 percent year-to-date Focus: Down 17 percent YTD Taurus: Down 11 percent YTD Fusion: Down 10 percent YTD Hinrichs didn't say which nameplates could be cut, but mentioned that former popular vehicles such as the Ranger were dropped after demand fell.
      “If you look at our past, there’s been some nameplates that have dropped off and other nameplates have been added. Given where the market is going, the demands for capital investment and the regulatory changes coming at us, we’ll continue to always look at the total portfolio and see where’s segmentation going and where should we be phasing out,” said Hinrichs.
      We think the Taurus is one of the vehicles on the chopping block since sales of it have been falling for the past couple of years.

      When Ford introduced the next-generation Fiesta earlier this week, there was one model missing; the hot ST. This caused a number of people to wonder if there would be a new Fiesta ST. Good news, there will be Fiesta ST coming. But it will be awhile before we see it.
      Dutch publication AutoRAI spoke with Tyrone Johnson, development boss of Ford ST and RS models. Johnson revealed that the Fiesta ST would debut in late 2017, with production beginning a year later. Details about the next Fiesta ST are scarce, but Johnson did hint that the next ST would not see a major increase in power. Instead, the focus will be on improving the fun-factor. We wouldn't be surprised if a six-speed manual remains the only transmission choice, along with the ability to get the ST in three or five-door versions.
