The 2015 Ford F-150 Enters Production

December 2nd, 2014 by

At River View Ford in Oswego, IL, we’re excited about all the new and dramatic changes on the 2015 Ford F-150. The first 2015 F-150 models have now rolled off the assembly line, and we’ll have it for Naperville and Plainfield drivers very soon.

All-New Design

With a redesigned body using high-strength aluminum, the weight of the 2015 Ford F-150 is about 700 pounds lighter than its predecessor, making the truck perform more efficiently without sacrificing power or capability.

A revamped truck needs a revamped approach to making it. That’s why Ford has added 850 new jobs at its Dearborn, MI factory and updated its body shop with 500 new robots to assemble the structures of the new F-150. The result is a dramatically different truck, offering impressive efficiency, power, and capability.

Aluminum Body

With a high-strength, military grade aluminum body and a frame constructed with high-strength steel, the 2015 F-150 weighs less and offers more strength, earning best-in-class towing and payload capacities and an improved power-to-weight ratio across all four engine options.

New Engine Choices

Two new engine options have been added this year along with updates and improvements on the carry-overs. Here are the choices that Naperville drivers will have:

  • 2.7L EcoBoost – All-new for 2015, this engine is the best choice for those who value fuel economy above all else. It delivers 8,500 pounds towing capability and 2,250 pounds of payload capacity.
  • 3.5L Ti-VCT V6 – Added this year to provide better power-to-weight ratio than the previous 3.7L V6this engine offers better performance and fuel economy than the engine it replaces.
  • 3.5L EcoBoost – With a 12% increase in power-to-weight ratio and a best-in-class tow rating of 12,200 pounds, this is a highly capable engine.
  • 5.0L Ti-VCT V8 – The beefiest engine in the lineup, this engine boasts a 3,300-pound, payload rating.
