Earlier this year, I had an opportunity to test-drive the 2015 Ford F-150 at the official press launch in San Antonio. After spending most of the day in the fantastic 2.7L EcoBoost, I jumped into a Lariat with the 3.5L EcoBoost. I’ve driven several EcoBoost-equipped F-150s in the past, and this one sounded different.
Sadly, Ford discontinued the SVT Raptor for the 2015 model year, and even though we fully expect a 2016 version to bow in less than a month at the 2015 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, that hasn’t stopped the folks at Hennessey from making a 2015 version of their ass-hauling, off-road truck.
Yes, I built a $62,530 truck. It’s not difficult to get a truck in the $50,000 plus range. That’s why the number one luxury vehicle on sale in the country is the Ford F-150.
A freight train full of Fords derailed near Raymore, Saskatchewan on Friday. Fortunately, no one was hurt or injured except for a number of brand new Ford F-150s.
The 2015 Ford F-150 will be the largest mass-produced vehicle made mostly out of aluminum. Once the Rouge plant in Dearborn is running at full capacity, they’ll be producing an astonishing 60 trucks per hour.
