Wisconsin Winter warriors will have a tough new tool in their arsenal against next year’s long winter season with Ford’s new snow plow prep option, available on the all-new 2015 F-150. Ford is expected to be the only manufacturer to offer a light-duty snow plow prep option across all cab configurations – 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.
The 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, Ford has made the new truck up to 700 pounds lighter. This leads to more capability and better handling, which is exactly what is needed for plowing. Adding a snow plow prep kit to the Ford lineup helps ensure Ford customers have even more tools at their disposal to get the job done.
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.
On Sale Late This Year:
Pricing for the snow plow prep option, excluding the plow, will be announced later this year. The all-new 2015 F-150 will arrive at Heiser Ford at the end of 2014.
