Ford Releases Pricing for 2015 F-150

IMG_8520 II

Over the weekend, Ford released ordering guides to dealers around the country for its totally redesigned, all-aluminum 2015 F-150 pickup truck. As expected, there's a price bump with the new pickup, but it's not necessarily due just to the copious use of the expensive lightweight metal — there's a raft of new standard content for the big pickups at every trim level, delivering a decent bump to value as well as technology. Let's go through the five trim levels to see what the new major standard features are, as well as the price increase expected for each. Destination charge remains unchanged at $1,195.

XL: Base price increases $395

New standard equipment includes:

  • 2.3-inch display in gauge cluster
  • 4.2-inch LCD with MyFord for audio system
  • Telescoping steering wheel
  • Two additional speakers
  • Driver's grab handle

XLT: Base price increases $395

Adds on to XL:

  • Power tailgate lock
  • BoxLink bed configuration system

Lariat: Base price increases $895

Adds to XLT:

  • 8-inch LCD gauge cluster (replaces analog gauges)
  • LED cargo box lighting
  • Heated and cooled front seats
  • Rearview camera
  • Power folding mirrors

King Ranch: Base price increases $3,615

Adds to Lariat:

  • LED headlights and taillights
  • LED mirror spotlights
  • Power remote tailgate release
  • Two 400-watt power outlets
  • Blind spot warning with cross-traffic alert
  • Push-button start
  • Heated rear seats and steering wheel

Platinum: Base price increases $3,055

Adds to King Ranch:

  • Inflatable rear seatbelt airbags
  • Multicontour massaging front seats

The biggest price jump comes for the King Ranch, with a surprising $3,615 increase to the truck's base price. Ford spokesman Mike Levine says that this represents $4,500 worth of additional content. In addition, PickupTrucks.com has learned what choosing some of the optional engines will add to the sticker price of a new 2015 F-150.

  • To go from the standard 3.5-liter V-6 to the turbocharged 2.7-liter EcoBoost V-6 will add just $495 to the bottom line.
  • The turbocharged 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 will run you $1,995, or $100 less than it costs to go from the standard 3.7-liter V-6 in the 2014 F-150 to the EcoBoost 3.5-liter today.

Other then the front end it does not look much different, and speaking of the front end can anyone say Tundra. I do think the current F150 can be a sharp looking pickup in the right colors. Like in red or black and a few other colors.

But I will say I could never see myself driving a full size pickup without a V8.

Easy to see how these (all half tons) trucks are easily tipping the scale across the $50k limit.

Amazing to think that just 60 years ago things like heaters and a second brake light were options. Makes you wonder what will be standard equipment in another 60 years.

This matters less than incentive changes. If incentives stay roughly the same after the initial pre release hoopla wears off these prices are pretty good and are going to end up sticking it to the competition (assuming no major problems arise with the new engines / body / frame). If the incentives shrink alongside these increases however the truck will be fairly expensive.

Wow, $495 for the 2.7 EcoBoost upgrade. Lots of people are going to take that.

If the 5.0 is a no cost upgrade and gets perhaps 5 mpg less than the 2.7, the payoff happens in about 10,000 miles.

For trucks that get driven a lot but don't max out the payload all the time, its going to save a lot.

GUTLESS
GLORYLESS
OVERPRICED
MADE OF RECYCLED BEER CANS
FORD F-150

Honestly, I really love the look of the new truck. Reminds me very much of an Explorer with a bed on it. Very nice, smooth, Ford looking vehicle.

Who is going to pay $495 to go from a bigger turbo engine to a smaller one? It should be the other way around.

Who is going to pay $495 for a less powerful motor then the 3.5, It should be priced the other way around.

Mike Levine's infatuation with Ford is what blinds him. Would anyone in their right mind pay $4000 extra for a King Ranch trim? I guess just the Egoboost alone doesn't make Ford girly girls secure about themselves. LMFAO

Mod, Please start banning the trolls.

Yes, I think it is kinda interesting that there was no reference to the 5.0 liter in this article.

@peter... go look at when the Atlas was released. Then go look when the 2014 Tundra was released. If anyone is guilty of robbing styling, it's Toyota. With that said, I will shop both of them though. Something to be said for Toyota's proven powertrain with all of these new motors and transmissions being released by the big 3.

It does retain a resemblance to the last 2 iterations and that is a good thing.
It is amazing the content that gets added but as pointed out, it isn't for free.
I am surprised that the aluminum truck isn't more expensive.

Ford estimates that at least 70% of their trucks will have an EB motor in it.

I am surprised that this site did not cover that news.

•The turbocharged 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 will run you $1,995

So you Ram haters love to harp on the 2800 dollar up charge for the EcoDiesel yet you have no problem paying 1995 for the 3.5 liter EcoBoost V-6 gas engine from Ford that has been a disappointment when it comes to fuel mileage by failing to meet what Ford said it would get in MPG's.

I don't see prices here, only spreads. How much is it?

Way more then Ram and Chevy/GMC from the sounds of it.

Glad to see that you have returned, Michigan Bob. Truer words have never been spoken! Let it be written. Let it be done!

Not sure if I like the look of this thing, to many openings and vents in the front.

Has Ford even released the Towing and hauling numbers on these 2015 F150's yet or is Ford waiting until the last minute to try and break out the magic spring and magic towing dust hoping no one catches on and really tests the trucks to the J2807 standard.

Any one doing tests of trucks must now start using the J2807 standards or their articles will not be worth the paper they are printed on or the band width they take up posting them on the web.

What are they saying? No quotation of the base price of the standard truck, only the cost of the option packages. I am starting to smell a shell game here. Oddball weight comparisons, no MSRP for the whole truck. Guess we will find out soon enough.

That's A LOT less than what some jokers on this forum and others were talking about for an increase on the alumium body vs steel.

$395? That's a steel! No pun intended.

2014 Silverado Steel body
VS
2015 F-150 All Aluminum body

(all prices include destination)

14 Silverado
WT $26,670 (base model)
----------------------------------
15 F-150
XL $26,615 (base model)

14 Silverado
LT $32,225. (mid range)
----------------------------------
15 F-150
XLT $31,890 (mid range)

Where all you critics now? Ya'll better run and hide.


Bob, USA Today listed the MSRPs with destination. I gave you an above comparision to the Silvy. The weight comparo were both Lariat CREWCAB's. I smell a troll here.

Funny all I can find is this about Ford meeting J2807 standards:

The biggest news of the day pertains to the all new 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6, which produces 325 hp and 375 lb-ft of torque. Maximum towing on this truck is pegged at 8,500 pounds according to Ford. All towing numbers on the 2015 F-150 are now certified using SAE J2807 standards.

As for the truck’s smallest engine, the new 3.5-liter naturally aspirated V6 pumps out 283 hp and 255 lb-ft of torque, and towing is rated at 7,600 pounds.

Some how I highly doubt that these numbers will stand up to honest J2807 testing. Now we need some one that is not in the back pocket of Ford to conduct honest tests using the J2807 standard and watch the Ford over heat and fail.

Good job, Ford!

"So you Ram haters love to harp on the 2800 dollar up charge for the EcoDiesel yet you have no problem paying 1995 for the 3.5 liter EcoBoost V-6 gas engine"
-----

Ram Big Horn,
Take a chill pill.

That EB is $1995 over the base price.

Ram EcoDiesel over the baase price is $4,500.! And it has less hp, 2000 lbs less towing, a lot less payload, less performance, etc.

I have a problem with that.

"•To go from the standard 3.5-liter V-6 to the turbocharged 2.7-liter EcoBoost V-6 will add just $495 to the bottom line."

PUTC,
Another bargain!

The way people were speculating they said the 2.7 EB with CGI and start stop would cost more than the 3.5 EB.

Nope!

The 2.7L EB is most being compared to the Ram EcoDiesel 3.0.

2.7L EB is just $495. over the base price.

3.0 EcoDiesel Ram is $4,500. over the base price.

Any questions?

Funny to see Michigan Bob surface to troll a Ford thread.

That GM rock you crawled out from under must of got too hot from the harsh light of all of those GM recalls.

Eveyone was crying when GM added $1,500 to there trucks. Now we have Fords with $3,000 plus mark up on them, and everyone is okay with that? Another thing is people crying about GM not having enough trim levels, now the GM trucks have 7 trim levels, Ford has 5 trim levels, and Ram has 10.

Aaron Bragman

First article I have seen by you and I must say good job. Are you going to be helping Mark Williams, taking his place or just what. I am sure everyone would like to know.

GUTS

GLORY

ALL STEEL BODIES

BETTER DURABILITY

MORE SATISFIED CUSTOMERS

BETTER THAN FORD OR GM

RAM

Seems like the xl is way to go if dont need crew cab, decent standard equipment. What I'd like to know is which trims get fx4 package and or console shifter.

What people were crying about on the GM's was when sales were struggling and GM added a cash back incentive and then promptly raised the price $1500 to $2000.

Make sure you compare apples to apples. $3000+ increase is on the KR. That would be like when the LTZ went up $5,000. to form the High Country.

$395 increase on the base and mid range F-150 is what's important here. This is much lower than people expected.

LOLz.
Duopolies are funny.

You wait till people start crashing in these things and you know they will. How much to fix aluminum? And who will do it? Start by ordering brand new parts instead of fixing a dent. The common shop wont be able to fix it only the Ford stealerships. So get ready and open your wallets. No way I'm gonna pay for this Ford junk.

Normally you replace a panel when you crash it. I don't know about you, but I don't want a shop to bang it out and try to bondo it. I haven't needed body work on any of my trucks. This is another red herring argument.

Massaging front seats!? Say it isn't so! :O

@Chris (the LTZ went up $5,000. to form the High Country) Um no it only went up $4,610 at the most.

MSRP from $41,120 2WD LTZ

MSRP from $44,270 4WD LTZ

MSRP from $41,800 2WD LTZ Z71

MSRP from $45,050 4WD LTZ Z71

MSRP from $45,605* 2WD High Country

MSRP from $48,880 4WD High Country

2014 F150 King Ranch 2WD starts at MSRP $44,880 add the $3,615 = $48,495 MSRP 2WD 2015 King Ranch.

The High Country is the better deal you can have a 4wd High Country for like 380 dollars over a 2015 2wd King Ranch

I may drive an old outdated design that is my 2014 Nissan Titan Pro-4X avg. 15.8 mpg, but I'll still take it over all of them when I paid $38,500 fully loaded. I'll pocket my $7-10K and laugh when you all get recalled.

@Lou_BC
@HEMI_RAMPAGE

Am I the only one who thinks your comments are a complete waste of space that adds NO value to the thread? It is obvious you are a fan of your particular brand but have given no consideration for the advantages the F150 may have to offer. You noted OVERPRICED...well what about the 3.0 Ecodiesel...wouldn't you say that is overpriced given the 2.7 is now an option from FORD?

Bring some data next time to back up your claims. You also stated better durability without ANY data to support this. Please supply what you are basing you claims upon other than you drank a 12 pack of beer last night and crushed the aluminum can. Ford products have used aluminum hoods for many years w/o issue.

From the side it kinda reminds me of the ram trucks.
But thats just my opinion.

Messaging front seats. That's what we need drivers that are so relaxed they fall asleep behind the wheel. LoL

"The High Country is the better deal
2014 F150 King Ranch 2WD starts at MSRP $44,880 add the $3,615 = $48,495 MSRP 2WD 2015 King Ranch.

The High Country is the better deal you can have a 4wd High Country for like 380 dollars over a 2015 2wd King Ranch"


Johnny,
Please make sure you compare apples to apples.

You have to add some packages to the High Country that are standard on the 15 King Ranch.

Take the High Country and now add navigation $795., premium pack $950, led bed lights $60., driver handle $75., remote start $225., subwoofer $1059 that are standard on the King Ranch.

Acutal MSRP on High Country is now $50,164.

And doesn't include LED heads and tails, power tailgate lock/release, alum body, bigger crrewcab, and a bunch of other stuff standard on the King Ranch.

You said the MSRP for the 2015 King Ranch is $48,495.

Now which is the better deal? I'm not trying to knock the Silverado High Country but please compare apples to apples.


@HEMI RAMPAGE
@Lou BC

Propaganda, really? RAM continues to prove that its fullsize truck CAN have midsize capability AND almost as many recalls as GM.

Correction:

High Country without destination is $49,069 MSRP with the available options that are standard on the Kin Ranch.

The King Ranch is $48,495. + has stuff the HC doesn't have.

Better deal?

This cannot be said enough.

F-150 2.7L EcoBoost is $495. over the base.

Ram 3.0L EcoDiesel is $4,500. over the base.

That's a big blow to Ram right there! For $4k more, you can get 1 extra MPG AND pay more for fuel. Yay Ram!!

Officer: I smell beer in your truck!
Driver: It's the new aluminum body made from recycled beer cans!
Officer: So we have a comedian here!
Driver: No sir, really it's a Ford F150 made from recycled beer cans!
Officer: A Ford? Good grief!

@ Bill - this site does not police the blogs. People routinely false post under other bloggers names.
My blog name is linked to a typepad account.

On the lighter side, I wonder if a decal maker will come up with a big pull tab decal that fits on the fuel door.

@Lou, no doubt about it on the looks. Classy again with an even tougher front end treatment. This is something Dodge has grasped with their current model styling also. Chevrolet has yet to latch onto it. Well, Chevrolet's been a design mess since 2003.. This price increase doesn't matter in the truck world. Today's trucks are like the muscle cars of the 1960's. About the only thing worth paying big money for.

A co-worker just bought a Silverado LTZ crew cab and paid well north of 50 grand. Yet it didn't even come with power adjustable pedals. I was in shock when I sat in it. He's (literally) a millionaire and wanted a High Country/Platinum but didn't like the brown only leather so the LTZ was the only option. Maybe the HC is the only way to get adjustable pedals though? I don't know but it was ridiculous IMO. When he gets done with aftermarket add on stuff he told me he'll be in it for 60k+. And it's just a plain old 1500 crew with a 5.3. Point being, when you're over 40-50 grand already, what's a few hundred or even a few thousand more bucks? If I was looking to buy a 50k dollar house, I'd have no problem financing 60k for a better house. There's just not that much of a difference. People looking at price differences are 15-20k car shoppers.
