Dealers start taking orders for the brand-new 2015 Ford F-150 pickup this week, and a Ford spokesperson has just confirmed pricing for the truck’s redesigned lineup. The lineup is simplified to five models—down from 10 last year—and the base XL truck starts at $26,615 with destination, just $395 more than the 2014 F-150.
The XL model comes standard with a naturally-aspirated 3.5-liter V-6 that makes 283 hp and 255 lb-ft of torque. Upgrading to the 2.7-liter turbocharged EcoBoost V-6 costs only $495 extra and brings much higher totals of 325 hp and 375 lb-ft of torque along with a maximum tow rating of 8500 lbs.
Next up is the $31,925 XLT model, which also comes standard with the 3.5-liter V-6 and offers the 2.7-liter EcoBoost V-6 as a $495 option. This price is also up $395 compared with last year’s XLT model. Although we don’t yet have full details on equipment content for the different trim levels of the 2015 Ford F-150, we do know that the new truck offers more standard features than its predecessor, not to mention significant weight savings from its new aluminum body.
In addition to the 2.7-liter EcoBoost V-6, XL and XLT models also offer the 3.5-liter turbocharged EcoBoost V-6 that carries over from last year’s truck. It will cost less to upgrade than before, though, as the 3.5 EcoBoost now costs $1995 over the base naturally-aspirated 3.5-liter V-6--$400 less than the upgrade cost last year.
The Lariat trim level goes up $895 in price to $39,730 with destination, and it comes standard with the 2.7-liter EcoBoost V-6. Although some trim levels from last year including the STX, FX2, FX4, and Limited are gone for 2015, a Ford spokesperson told us that the 2015 Ford F-150 will offer packages with equivalent equipment packages. For example, the FX4 trim level will be replaced with a stand-alone off-road option package. Stay tuned for more information about the option structure for the 2015 F-150 as we get nearer to its arrival at dealers.
The two top trims of the 2015 Ford F-150, the $49,690 King Ranch and $52,950 Platinum, both come standard with the same 5.0-liter V-8 engine, carrying over from last year. Opting for the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 costs $400 extra, and both of these Crew Cab models are not available with the smaller 2.7-liter EcoBoost V-6.
Stay tuned for more information about the 2015 Ford F-150 lineup, including fuel economy and more detailed option pricing, over the next few weeks.
