The new, fully redesigned, 2015 Ford F-150 debuted at the Detroit auto show this week. The new F-150 offers new technology that we haven’t seen in pickup trucks before.
A four-camera system lets you to see all four sides of the truck. On a center stack screen you can get a bird’s-eye view of the truck and surrounding area. The rear view camera adds a line on the screen to help drivers line up the trailer.
With the use of high-strength, military-grade, aluminum alloys this new F-150 will weigh as much as 700 lbs. less than its predecessor. Lighter weight and smaller engines result in better acceleration, braking, corrosion resistance, and fuel economy.
New Curve Control provides better four-wheel braking when you take a curve too fast. Adaptive cruise control helps you keep a safe distance to any vehicle ahead. Features also include lane departure warning and blind spot detection.

F-150 has been North America’s best-selling vehicle for 32 years. In its class, it competes against Chevrolet Silverado 1500, GMC Sierra 1500, Dodge Ram 1500, and Toyota Tundra. The Tundra, Silverado, and Sierra were redesigned in model year 2014. Dodge Ram got a makeover 2013.
