Meet the Team Behind the 2015 Ford F-Series Super Duty, May 1-May 16, 2014
Well, actually, it takes a whole lot of people to bring a vehicle like the 2015 F-Series Super Duty to market, but we’re inviting you in this thread to talk to a group of us at Ford that are responsible for this truck – the toughest, most capable heavy duty pickup truck on the market with best in class diesel power, towing, and fuel economy*. Ask us anything or leave a comment about the 2015 Super Duty and we’ll do our best to answer everything we can each Friday from now until May 16. We are:
Nick Terzes, Vehicle Integration Supervisor
Robbie Calkins, Vehicle Integration
Scott Paddy, P/T
Alan Costantino, Performance / Fuel Economy
Dave Demmith, NVH and Sound Quality
Mike Wegienka, Vehicle Dynamics
Pete Castelli, Vehicle Dynamics

Mike DeJean, Vehicle Chassis Engineering Supervisor
We are only talking 2015 Super Duty because that’s what we know best. We are not in a position to help with specific vehicle issues. Ford Customer Support will gladly handle any specific issues or problems that you are experiencing.
NOTE from the mods: We’re thrilled to have these guys from Ford with us but please note they can really only speak to their subject matter, the 2015 Super Duty. Please note that off topic posts will be deleted or moved to another thread without notice.
*When properly equipped. Class is Full-Size Pickups over 8,500 lbs. GVWR. Fuel economy claim based on Ford simulated city-suburban drive-cycle tests of comparably equipped 2015 Ford and 2011-2013 competitive models, consistent with SAE Standard J1321.
I would like to ask why there was no exterior upgrades for a fifth model year, with the introduction of all these chassis and power upgrades? I'm personally getting very tired of looking at the same old ugly nose.
Also. I know the towing has went up but will these new figures comply with the new sae standards
For us owners who live in the rust belt. Every State Department of Transportation is turning to the use of salt brine mixtures. Is it feasible to add a package or process to slow down and protect the frame components from the accelerated rust problems?
What about real time gauges no just dummy light gauges?
Welcome to FTE!!!!
The above is what I'm wondering too...

The question I have are in regard to the updated 6.7 powertrain.
One of the things I like about my current 6.7 is the (relative) lack of turbo lag. Is moving to a larger, more conventional turbo going to affect this?
On the press release material, it states that there have been some changes to the high pressure fuel pump for 2015. Can you elaborate in as much detail as possible on these changes? Some users here have experienced fuel pump failure on the 6.7, causing expensive damage to the rest of the fuel system on the truck - have any of the changes that you have made to the fuel pump helped to mitigate failure, or at least make it fail more gracefully? (not take out the rest of the injection system with it)
Could you go into more detail as to the new exhaust brake functionality? How is it actuated? Does it just retract the vanes on the turbo to provide more exhaust back-pressure? Have you tested how much retardation the exhaust brake applies? (like larger trucks do, to SAE J2458) If so, what is the rating of the brake?

Many of your trucks are used by RVer's that would love to have the smooth ride and better steering quality from IFS. I would suggest making the F250 with the IFS option and let the F350 and up have the solid front axle for those that wanted snow plows or heavy bumpers and winches up front.
You better make that an option!
The reason I bought my truck was because of the solid front axle, and the axle articulation (and simplicity) it provides.

I also want to add that vynal floors and seats should be available with all models. Maybe I want nav and all the expensive stuff but I work a dirty trade and don't want to mess up cloth, carpet or leather
