F-150 owners with snow plow prep option can operate a plow installed via the aftermarket
Maximum light-duty plow weight will be over 450 pounds
Winter warriors will have a tough new tool in their arsenal against Mother Nature with Fordâ€™s new snow plow prep option, available on the all-new 2015 F-150. Ford will be the only manufacturer to offer a light-duty snow plow prep option across all cab configurations â€“ Regular, SuperCab and SuperCrew.
When snow plow mode is activated via the push of a button, the vehicle temporarily turns off nonessential features to provide dedicated power for the plow.
The option package requires the truck be equipped with a 5.0-liter V8 engine and four-wheel drive, and is available across XL, XLT and Lariat trim levels.
â€śThe new 2015 F-150 is the toughest F-150 ever, and by using more high-strength steel in its frame and advanced materials in the body, weâ€™ve made the new truck up to 700 pounds lighter,â€ť said Eric Peterson, Ford F-150 marketing manager. â€śThis leads to more capability and better handling, which is exactly what youâ€™d want for plowing. Adding a snow plow prep kit to our lineup helps ensure our customers have even more tools at their disposal to get the job done.â€ť
Upon taking delivery of a new F-150 with the snow plow prep option, owners will need to take their truck to a Ford Qualified Vehicle Modifier to purchase and install the plow hardware. The maximum light-duty plow weight will be over 450 pounds.
Pricing for the snow plow prep option, excluding the plow, will be announced later this year. The all-new 2015 F-150 will arrive in dealerships at the end of 2014.
