Ford Motor Company has announced plans to offer a snow plow prep option for the 2015 F-150 pickup truck. Available across all cab configurations, the snow plow prep will allow F-150 owners to operate an aftermarket-installed plow with a maximum weight of “over 450 pounds”.
Although it can be fitted on all trim levels, the option package requires the truck be equipped with a 5.0-liter V8 engine and four-wheel drive.

“The new 2015 F-150 is the toughest F-150 ever, and by using more high-strength steel in its frame and advanced materials in the body, we’ve made the new truck up to 700 pounds lighter,” said Eric Peterson, Ford F-150 marketing manager. “This leads to more capability and better handling, which is exactly what you’d want for plowing. Adding a snow plow prep kit to our lineup helps ensure our customers have even more tools at their disposal to get the job done.”

Pricing for the snow plow prep option will be announced later this year. The 2015 Ford F-150, which was unveiled at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show last month, will hit dealerships in the fourth quarter of the year.
