As rumored since last year, the new truck is 700 pounds lighter than the model it replaces thanks to an aluminum alloy body and increased use of high-strength steel. Described as “the toughest, smartest, most capable F-150”, the new truck will feature 11 new class-exclusive features and a brand new 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 engine.

Other engine options will include the naturally aspirated 3.5-liter V6 (standard), the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 and the familiar 5.0-liter V8. The 6.2-liter V8 will no longer be offered once the current generation truck goes out of production.

As far as styling goes, the 2015 F-150 borrows several cues from the Ford Atlas concept, especially in the front area, where the large grille and the new headlamps were paired for a bolder appearance. The interior is more stylish than ever, while new features will include 360-degree camera view, integrated loading ramps stowed in the bed, 400-watt power outlets in the cab, LED headlamps, mirror spotlights and remote tailgate release.

Scheduled to go on sale later this year, the 2015 Ford F-150 will be offered in five trims - XL, XLT, Lariat, Platinum and King Ranch. Ford is also offering a chrome appearance package, a sport package and an off-road package. More info on the brand new truck is available in the press release below.
