As the bestselling truck in America, the F-150 is the backbone of the nation’s transportation. It has helped its drivers traverse landscapes as bravely as the country it belongs to has throughout history—a history simultaneous with Ford’s.

The public depends on this vehicle, and its 2015 features place confidence in consumers and local dealerships alike.

Henry Day Ford, Salt Lake City’s trusted Ford dealership, has several 2015 F-150 models in transit, and the public has much to ravish in the new model. This dealership knows the diverse needs of Salt Lake City residents, and plans to meet those needs with its lot, soon-to-be carrying a large inventory of 2015 F-150s.

Ford.com reports that the 2015 F-150 employs a new, 3.5L V6 engine with twin independent variable camshaft timing, allows 283 horsepower and a max payload of 1,910 pounds.

This feature also provides the vehicle with 7,600 pounds of towing capacity. The twin independent variable camshaft timing adjusts the vehicle’s intake and exhaust automatically, providing the new model with better efficiency.

Ford.com also notes that the 3.5L Eco Boost option couples the typical power of a V8 engine with the efficiency one would expect from a V6 engine. The V8 FFV feature makes the vehicle flex-fuel capable.

Perhaps the F-150s most impressive 2015 accomplishment is its careful heeding of the need for efficiency, demonstrated by the use of a more fully-aluminum frame than the 2014 model.

These additional features prove that Ford cares as much about the functionality of its vehicles as it does their style. If competitors want to catch up, they will need to overhaul their feature adjustments for 2015 models to include more functional benefits, rather than typical bells and whistles.
