2015 Ford F-150 Snow Plow Option Costs 50 Bucks Sans the Plow

With the thirteenth-generation F-Series, the Blue Oval pushes the full-size truck envelope even further. Its body and bed are made from military-grade aluminum alloys, which translates to a lighter, more capable truck with better fuel economy than before.

But this American workhorse isn’t all about its fancy aluminum construction. In our review of the 2015 Ford F-150, we highlighted how the light-duty F-Series matured into probably the best full-size pickup money can buy. Sorry Ram 1500 and Chevy Silverado...

Still, please don’t get carried away with the configurator because things could get scary. Take the $50,960 Platinum model as a prime example and imagine how much more you’re able to spend on a better engine and options.

At the end of the day, most F-150 customers aren’t going for the hideously expensive top-of-the-range Platinum, but simpler derivatives of the four-wheeled FoMoCo laborer. For many years now, customers were asking automakers to develop and offer a factory option for a snow plow and Ford delivered just that.

But there’s a catch: only the 5-liter V8-powered F-150 models can be kitted with it. Additionally, we’re told that the new snow plow prep option is available for $50, but the plow isn’t included.

That's a good thing, you know: even though you have to spend some more on the plow itself, Ford offers many snow plow weights to suit the needs of ever particular buyer interested in purchasing such a utensil.
