Any Changes to the 2015's?

Has anyone heard of any major changes with the 2015 Super Duty's? Wonder if they will still be running the 6.7 and if there are any planned major body design changes. I plan to trade my 2013 6.2 next year going back to the diesel.

It's possible that they could make some chassis or styling changes, but replace the 6.7? Highly doubtful. Ford wont even begin to break-even on the 6.7 development costs until 2016.

Heard a major overhaul is coming in 15/16. Hopefully they keep the 6.7, as they keep tweaking it, it will be on top for sure.

Hopefully Ford will put a different radiator in these trucks for 2015 at least.

Vloney or Cheezit (cannot remember who) said during the tech training when Ford was visiting dealers in early 2010, Ford planned to run the 6.7L for nine years.
I take that as meaning some tweaks to keep up with the other two but not major changes.

Hey everyone!

For the most up-to-date news about future vehicles, I recommend keeping an eye on http://media.ford.com; that's where you'll see all the big announcements regarding model year changes. If there are features you'd like to see on future models, post your suggestions to the "Your Ideas" tab of Ford Social: There’s something happening here at Ford..

I would expect the first thing to get looked at, will be the body, which has stayed pretty consistent since 99. The next thing would probably be the chassis (I am guessing at some point they will introduce a fully boxed frame etc.), as that hasn't seen major changes since 05.
I would probably expect this to all happen ~2016MY or so.

The engine/transmission won't be updated until:
  1. Emissions require it too (and they can't easily update the current engine to meet them)
  2. The competitors clearly surpass Ford in terms of power/torque/fuel economy (and remember, currently Ford tops each of those items)

I'm betting the focus will be on the '15 F150 and that they'll have their hands full with all the changes there are rumors on.

I think they may update the chassis and go fully boxed to catch up with competitors. 6.7 aint going anywhere for a long long time. I am sure the body style wont change for a while as well.

I agree on the more head room. I like to sit high in the seat all the way up.
In this 2013 my head almost touches the top of the cab.
Had a lot more room in my 08.

Please tell the folks that need to know we need more power. Gotta stay ahead of those Dodges, oh I mean "Rams". Something to the tune of 500-550hp and 1100 lbs ft would be a good start Be the first to crack the 1000 lbs ft mark from the factory.

Oh and more mileage would be a plus, can't complain about mine as it does really well 18-21mpg empty hwy at 65-70 mph, but more is always better.

One real thing I would love to see is actual exhaust break like the Duramax and Cummins, not "engine breaking" as in the sales book, that does nothing more than change gears on the transmission.

Other than that the current truck is solid.

What wrong with the current fenders? I love them. I can acutally reach into my toolbox with getting in the truck bed like I had to with the giant, ugly flares on my old dodge. Something happens to the fender you can unbolt and replace it. Ask the GM guys how fun one piece dually bedsides are, they're always broken.
