Montrose Wholesale Outlet created this 2015 Ford F-150 car review because, when you need the strength and power of a pre-owned pickup truck in the Cleveland and Akron metro areas, you need to know exactly what each contender brings to the table.
Every generation of the F-150 presents its own take on the fan-favorite pickup, so we’ll break down what the 2015 model has to offer Parma area drivers in terms of engine specs, weight capabilities, and technology.
2015 Ford F-150 Engine Specs
With the 2015 F-150, you have a total of four engines to choose from, each with their own strengths. The standard engine strikes a steady balance between might and power It has a 3.5L V6 engine that generates 282 horsepower and 253 lb-ft of torque.
If you want a highly advanced engine with smarts well beyond its year, the available 2.7L EcoBoost® engine will give you 325 lb-ft of horsepower and 375 lb-ft of torque. For improved cylinder breathing for heavy-duty use and durability, upgrade to the available 5.0L V8 engine, which has an output of 385 horsepower and 387 lb-ft of torque.
Finally, there’s the available maximum capability engine. This 3.5L twin-turbocharged EcoBoost® engine generates 365 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque, perfect for hauling heavy loads.
Despite the power behind these engines, this truck still gets an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 18-22 MPG combined.
2015 F-150 Towing and Payload Capabilities
When you have a heavy weight to bear, the towing and payload capacities in the 2015 F-150 won’t disappoint.
Because it’s made of a high-strength military-grade aluminum alloy that reduces its curb weight by 700 pounds over the previous model, this truck can handle a maximum payload of 3,300 pounds. If you’re pulling something behind you, it has a 12,200-pound trailering capacity.
No matter how much you’re towing, the standard Trailer Sway Control paired with the tow/haul drive mode, keeps you steady and in command.
When you’re loading the bed, the available Remote Tailgate Release creates easy access by automatically opening in response to a button the key fob, so you can easily load up, even with your hands full.
Ford F-150 Technology
The 2015 Ford F-150 offers plenty of technology tools that work hard to make your job easier. The available 360o Camera with Split-View Display, for instance, shows a bird’s eye view of your truck and trailer for easy docking. This prevents whatever you’re towing from obscuring your vision.
Available Active Park Assist also helps you park in a crowded area by using sensors to locate an available perpendicular or parallel spot and guide you into it. All you have to do is accelerate, brake, and shift. The system will do the steering for you.
When you’re in reverse, the available Rear Cross Traffic Alert watches your back by monitoring your rear blind spots, and the available Blind Spot Information System® (BLIS®) monitors your side blind spots for safer and easier merging on the highway.
