DAVENPORT, Iowa, July 28, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Davenport, Iowa drivers are eagerly awaiting the arrival of the 2015 Ford F-150 at Dahl Ford. The new lightweight, military-grade aluminum-bodied F-150 is revolutionizing the pickup truck segment and drawing more and more attention to the new-age pickup. An innovative new chassis combined with new, improved power options create potential for class-leading performance specs that the staff at Dahl Ford are highlighting to keep consumers informed.
The most anticipated addition to the 2015 Ford F-150 engine lineup is the 2.7-liter turbocharged EcoBoost V-6 option capable of 325 horsepower and 375 pound-feet of torque. Offering V-8 power and utility with the economy of a V-6, the new EcoBoost is hotly anticipated. A 2,250-pound payload and 8,500-pound max towing capacity should be towards the top of the light-duty pickup truck class and outperform the majority of competitors.
When compared to numbers for the 2014 Ford F-150 5.0-liter V-8, the new EcoBoost delivers a 15-percent increase in power-to-weight ratio. A lighter chassis and V-6 economy will deliver better fuel economy for the 2015 F-150 and with the addition of an Auto Start-Stop feature, the newest version of the best-selling Ford pickup will further increase those numbers.
A 3.5-liter Ti-VCT V-6 is the new base engine for the 2015 Ford F-150. The six-cylinder delivers 283 horsepower and 255 pound-feet of torque, allowing it to take on a 1,910-pound payload and 7,600-pound towing capacity that makes the base model F-150 a tidy, efficient working truck. Consumers interested in value and utility should take a look at the standard 2015 Ford F-150.
Curb weights are some of the most anticipated statistics for this year's model and rightly so. Exact numbers have yet to be revealed, but one example was given to highlight the new F-150 body. The 2015 Ford SuperCrew trim will shed roughly 730 pounds in comparison to the 2014 Ford F-150 SuperCrew trim. These numbers are incredible for the full-size truck segment and make the 2015 Ford F-150 even more intriguing.
