Looks Like Limited Slip Not An Option For 2015??...

... or at least I'm seeing no mention of it in the early Ford information and a chart on axle options I saw at the dealer showed "non-slip" as standard and "E-Lock" as the option.

This could be a potential show stopper for me as the E-lock disengages at 25 mph or so. Maybe I'm old fashioned, but I've put faith in limited slip diff's (along with good winter tires) for many, many years.

what does "non-slip" mean? That doesn't sound like an open diff.

I was messing around on the ford.com web site, building an F-150. You can get a limited slip differential, but it is not an option for all engine/chassis/trim combinations.

Sorry, the chart I looked at said " Non-Limited Slip" which was standard on many combinations, and "Electronic Locking" as the option.

Was this for the 2014 build or the 2015 build? The 2014 I spec'd out online did have LS as an option, but the only 2015 site I've seen was just sort of showing off the new features, explaining the aluminum body, and mentioning the changes from 2014 to 2015.

I almost hate to say this, but with ever more stringent (and unrealistic IMO) CAFE standards, if there is .25 MPG to be had by eliminating a limited slip differential, then it may well go away.

In ten years you may have 4X4 trucks that have "on demand" electric motors driving he front wheels, and a 2.5L turbo being the staple engine.... Of course ratings may well climb because hype sells, but true capability will diminish.

I wouldn't sweat the lack of L/S option as long as the aftermarket still makes them. Ford can do everything it wants to lure in customers, but what matters to me most is price and cost of repairs when they are necessary. I haven't seen any new offering that comes close to the 95 I had in cost of repairs. And it was super reliable too.
