Ford released the specs on their 2015 F150. Looks pretty cool! I'm hoping to get a '15 or a '16 in the future here.
More info on Autoblog
Notable new features for those of us that tow boats:
  • High-strength, military-grade, aluminum alloys that save 700 lbs. Gives you a higher power to weight ratio so it's like getting a horsepower boost.
  • 360-degree camera view, using exterior cameras to create a bird's-eye view of the truck to help the driver park
  • LED headlamps and taillamps
  • LED spotlights on sideview mirrors
  • LED lighting embedded in the walls of the cargo box
  • Trailer hitch assist, a new rear view camera feature that adds a dynamic line based on steering wheel angle in the display to help customers line up truck and trailer without requiring a spotter or having to get out of the vehicle
  • Smart trailer tow module, using an all-new smart trailer tow wiring harness that helps identify and inform the driver of potential trailer connectivity issues, burned or unlit trailer marker lamps, and brake light and trailer battery faults
  • Power tailgate - remote controlled

Nice Truck!! fenders, doors, and bed look pretty much the same as the 09-14 but is that a double sized sun roof or just the pic angle? LED's are cool but the remote tailgate is to further the vaginization of America. If you can't lift a tailgate you shouldn't own or drive a truck.

Yeah, that back window kind of looks like GMC/Chevy.

From the front it looks like they grafted a set of Chevy headlights onto a Dodge, and then slapped a Ford emblem on it....

I wonder if that weight savings is with the tow model frame or the non-tow model frame:

I'm not digging the FX4 at all. The current gen of FX4's is the only version I would buy.

I prefer my '13 FX4. But that double glass roof would be sweet!
