Yes, I work for a BOSS snow plow dealer and we received info on the 2015 F-150's that will be available with a plow prep option. From what i've read they say you can only mount and run a plow on a truck with this package. It will only be available on 5.0 4x4 trucks with certain cab configurations. If i can dig up the info i have i'll post it.

ALL-NEW FORD F-150 ADDS TOUGH NEW SNOW PLOW PREP OPTION ACROSS ALL CAB CONFIGURATIONS
The all-new 2015 Ford F-150 is expected to be the only light duty pickup with a manufacturer’s snow plow prep option across all cab configurations*
F-150 owners with snow plow prep option can operate a plow installed via the aftermarket
Maximum light-duty plow weight will be over 450 pounds

Winter warriors will have a tough new tool in their arsenal against Mother Nature with Ford’s new snow plow prep option, available on the all-new 2015 F-150. Ford is expected to be the only manufacturer to offer a light-duty snow plow prep option across all cab configurations – Regular, SuperCab and SuperCrew.*

When snow plow mode is activated via the push of a button, the vehicle temporarily turns off nonessential features to provide dedicated power for the plow.
The option package requires the truck be equipped with a 5.0-liter V8 engine and four-wheel drive, and is available across XL, XLT and Lariat trim levels.
“The new 2015 F-150 is the toughest F-150 ever, and by using more high-strength steel in its frame and advanced materials in the body, we’ve made the new truck up to 700 pounds lighter,” said Eric Peterson, Ford F-150 marketing manager. “This leads to more capability and better handling, which is exactly what you’d want for plowing. Adding a snow plow prep kit to our lineup helps ensure our customers have even more tools at their disposal to get the job done.”
Upon taking delivery of a new F-150 with the snow plow prep option, owners will need to take their truck to a Ford Qualified Vehicle Modifier to purchase and install the plow hardware. The maximum light-duty plow weight will be over 450 pounds.
Pricing for the snow plow prep option, excluding the plow, will be announced later this year. The all-new 2015 F-150 will arrive in dealerships at the end of 2014.

* When properly equipped. Class is Full-Size Pickups under 8,500 lbs. GVWR.
