We’ve shared a lot with you about the new 2015 F-150, but we haven’t shared this. The new F-150 will have almost as many new patents on it as its model number. Thats more than 100 new or pending Ford patents, making the new F-150 the most patented truck in Ford history! Ford is all about making your life easier, safer, and more efficient.
Here is a peek into the technicalities beyond the lightweight but uberstrong aluminum body, the 2.7L EcoBoost engine efficiency and higher MPG, and the higher towing and hauling capability that we already have been bragging about. Here’s a glimpse into the innovative technological advances that make this vehicle the leader in truck technology.
Power Plugs. Thats right, there’s 110V/400W power outlets right there in your truck.
360 degree camera system. Alright, big deal. There’s a camera on the truck just like every other new vehicle. But do the other vehicles have a four-camera system that allows you to see all four sides, a complete birds eye view? Or what about a washer system, so the cameras are never obstructed by dirt and grime?
Lifetime LEDs. Because LED lighting uses about half the energy to beam a brighter area, the headlamps are expected to last the entire life of the truck. In addition, the F-150 has LED spotlights integrated into the rear view mirrors for that extra illumination when you’re working on a night-shift.
Tailgate Tech. Now, you can lower your tailgate with your key fob. And, the tailgate step is fully integrated into the tailgate, delivering a sleek, nearly invisible step.
Rain Sensing Wipers. Just in case you don’t realize that it’s raining, your ride has it covered.
Adaptive Cruise Control and Forward Collision Warning. Maximizing safety, minimizing accidents. The F-150 will catch if you’re sneaking up on the car in front of you too quickly and adjust accordingly. And, with brake support, will help hault the car in the case of a forward near-collision.
8-inch Productivity Screen. Completely redesigned screen that is customizable, mission-specific, and delivers everything you need to know about your truck’s status.
We’re sure that there will be more surprises before it’s debut that will fully convince you that the 2015 F-150 should be your new baby. Stay tuned.
