The 2015 F-150 made its debut in January in Detroit at the North American International Auto Show — and it will be the only light-duty passenger truck available with a factory-option snow plow for all models. This snow plow will activate at a press of a button and get you ready to take on the wrath of Mother Nature beginning in 2015.
This winter has been a rough one for nearly every region in this country, but next year it could actually be much different for new F-150 owners. The new fleet of snow-plow ready F-150 pickups will hit the roads before the next winter season.
The 2015 F-150 is going to be the only light-duty truck to have an optional snow plow prep option from the factory. All models will have the option to have this features across the board.
However, if you add the option, you will have to upgrade to the 5.0L V8 engine and 4-wheel drive — but that’s not exactly a punishment. The extra torque and horsepower will be useful when pushing through banks of ice and snow.
To activate the plowing system, all it will take is pushing a button that shuts down all other non-essential power draining features.
The new F-150 is the toughest passenger pickup ever. The use of high-strength steel in the frame and aluminum materials in the body allowed Ford to make it 700 pounders lighter this year.
This new design opens the doors for options options like these as it has better capability and handling than ever before.
