Holy Truck! 2015 Ford F-150 Is Better Than Ever

For the last few months all I’ve been hearing about is the 2015 Ford F-150 and today I got the chance to test drive one. First off, believe everything you read by the automotive critics when they tell you that this truck is going to be the hottest truck of the year! I’m a truck guy, I’ve been driving an F-series truck since the age of 16, so I’m going to be it’s biggest critic.

2015 Ford F-150 XLT at Waldorf Ford

The first thing I did was walk around the truck to inspect the body lines, feel the new aluminum body, and jump up in the bed. Ford did a fantastic job with this aggressive looking front end. To me it’s a more manly look the way the hood lines flow into the chrome horseshoe shaped grill. Notice the fog lights, last year we had circular fog lights, this year Ford squared them up to compliment the rest of the edges on the front end.

When I got to the back of the truck I opened up the tailgate. As a matter of fact I opened the tailgate about three times because I couldn’t believe how light it was! And don’t get it twisted, it wasn’t light in a poor quality way but light in a performance perspective. The tailgate was thick too, unlike a lot of other tailgates I’ve opened. Everything felt secure on the back end, and looked really well. You can see in this photo how well that body line about 6 inches down from the top wraps around the bed of the F-150 across the taillights and onto the tailgate. IMG_0208

So from here I was eager to see the interior so I jumped on in with no hesitation. Immediately I noticed the new dash that Ford has created. That rectangle – horseshoe look that we saw on the front end is replicated into the dash using the chrome outlined air vents, and SYNC entertainment system. Attention to detail is important, and Ford executed the appearance of this F-150 really well. IMG_0202

Though it’s only a minor component to this masterpiece, the power outlets on the dash of the ’15 Ford F-150 meet the needs of all consumers. From your traditional cigarette lighter socket, to a 110-V household power socket, to USB, this blue oval beast can charge about everything. IMG_0203 (1)

My next highlight is going to be the space in this 2015 F-150, which for me hasn’t been a problem because the more recent F-150’s have always had plenty of room. But what I’m so excited about is the extra width of this truck. I first noticed this when I sat in the back seat of the truck. I’m 6ft. 1in. and this was my position in the backseat with the driver’s seat fitted to another 6ft. person. A lot of room right? And not only room in front of me, but room to the side as well! I felt like 3 large adults could sit comfortably next to each other with out breaking into ones’ personal space.

Fellas have you ever rode in a truck with your buddy or co-worker and kept bumping elbows because the arm rest was just too narrow? Awkward, I know! You won’t have this problem in the 2015 F-150 unless of course you and your passenger are built like the Incredible Hulk. Ford used it’s extra cab width right by making more room in the middle for arms, or perhaps another person. IMG_0206

Now, the best part of this whole first experience was putting this tough monster on the highway! As soon as I let the break out, and turned out of the parking spot I could tell that the truck drove smooth. The steering wheel felt right, everything rolled like I was floating on a magic carpet. For a minute there I forgot I was driving a truck. Then, as I entered onto the highway I put the pedal to the metal to see what this bad boy had in it. Wow! That 3.5L Ecoboost  V6 had my jaw on the floor, and the wheels turning. I couldn’t believe there was just 6 cylinders to this machine and not eight. I’ve had a V8 in all of my trucks, but to be honest, none of them really gave me the thrill that the ’15 just did. From the acceleration, to the breaking, and turning the ’15 Ford F-150 had me wishing I could drive this every day.

So now you know my thoughts on the highly anticipated 2015 Ford F-150 at first glance. It’s your turn to come into Waldorf Ford and experience the thrill of the 2015 truck of the year.

In addition to our social media campaign, Ford is changing some of the wording on their customer surveys, so we thought we would create a photo opportunity for our customers that went along with the survey. Some of our employees wanted to test it out…here is the result.
