With the release of the 2015 Ford F-150 on the horizon, Ford looks to make automotive history by switching from a steel-intensive frame to that of an aluminum composition. That being said, Ford is looking to take their groundbreaking ways to an even greater height with the introduction of a new and improved F-150 with an entirely plastic body. How about an electric motor instead of an internal-combustion engine? That’s right, the 2015 Ford F-150 is undergoing the ultimate makeover courtesy of Power Wheels, making her a much more attractive product for those of Generation Alpha.
Built by Fisher-Price and licensed by the Ford Motor Company, the new rideable toy began as a promotional method for the new Ford F-150 nine months before the real-life version of the ever-popular pickup made its debut at the Detroit Auto Show this past January. The toy is expected to wreak havoc on sidewalk chalk art as early as September.
While the newest version of the Ford F-150 — America’s best-selling vehicle for the past 32 years — carries with it a price tag to the sound of around $26,500, the Power Wheels version should set parents back a mere $350. In addition, Parents — if you’re really looking to impress your children — Toys “R” Us plans to offer a special edition of the dazzling toy that will come fully-equipped with LED headlamps, just like the real F-150, for only $10 more.
Of the genuine Ford F-150 purchasing process, Henry Day Ford — Utah’s leading Ford Dealer — says, “We realize that purchasing a car can sometimes be an unpleasant experience. As a matter of fact, most of our guests tell us that they simply hate buying cars. Here at Henry Day, we have been servicing guests with their automobile needs for over 76 years, and our sales process has always been designed to be as straightforward as possible.”
While the sentiment expressed by Henry Day Ford echoes those of all Ford dealerships, the addition of Power Wheels’ version of the 2015 F-150 should do nothing but put a smile on the faces of those faced with the painstakingly intricate process of buying an automobile — even if she’s as reliable and effective as the F-150.
