Truck oder Pickup? Beides! Ford F-150 2015

Wow. Das nenne ich einen Truck/Pick Up. Ford zeigt den 2015 Ford F-150. Mit neuem hochfesten Rahmen, Aluminium Karosserie und Baja 1000-proven 2.7-liter Ford EcoBoost Motor. Ausstattung u.a.: 360-Grad Kamera, integrierte Laderampen auf der Pickup Fläche, 400-Watt Powersound Anlage, LED Scheinwerfer u.v.m.

Unglaubliche 350 Kilo leichter ist der US Pick Up seinem Vorgänger gegenüber geworden. Ford nennt den neuen F-150 den „toughest, smartest and most capable F-150 ever“.

Die Ausstattungsliste ist so umfangreich, dass ich auf ein Übersetzen verzichtete und sie Euch in englisch präsentiere:

  • 360-degree camera view, using exterior cameras to create a bird’s-eye view of the truck to help the driver park, maneuver in tight spots and navigate down narrow roads and trails
  • Integrated loading ramps, which enable easy loading of ATVs, motorcycles and mowers
  • BoxLink, which is a combination of metal brackets and custom cleats used to secure a variety of accessories in the cargo box, from ramps to storage bins to bed dividers
  • LED headlamps and taillamps, which provide excellent nighttime visibility
  • 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
  • Remote tailgate, allowing for the tailgate to be locked, unlocked and released with the key fob – eliminating manual locking and increasing convenience and security. The tailgate also is damped, dropping down, hands-free, to a flat position when opened
  • High-wattage power outlets (400 watts, 110 volts) in the cab, allowing drivers to easily charge corded tools, battery chargers or mobile devices on-site or while driving
  • LED spotlights on sideview mirrors, which provide powerful, durable and bright lighting around the truck exterior
  • Latest EcoBoost® technology in an all-new, even more efficient 2.7-liter EcoBoost engine that features extremely high output and lightweight design
  • Next-generation tailgate step, which is now fully integrated inside the tailgate and virtually invisible when not in use
  • New 8-inch LCD productivity screen in the instrument panel, which includes updated truck apps – from fuel economy to towing tips – and the ability to create a customized home screen for customers to access their most frequently used apps in one place
  • LED lighting embedded in the walls of the cargo box, which brightly illuminates the box interior to help customers quickly find tools or other items
  • Rear under-seat storage in F-150 Super and Crew cabs, providing hidden storage for valuables. Two storage bins also are located underneath the rear seats
  • Boxside step, now available for the short 5.5-foot box

Als Motoren stehen zur Auswahl: ein 2.7-Liter, ein 3.5-Liter V6 und ein 5.0-Liter V8. Ein spezieller „Gag“ am neuen Ford F-150 Pick Up: die Kühlerlamellen. Sie sind geöffnet im „Stop and go Verkehr“und schließen sich bei höheren Geschwindigkeiten. Das soll aerodynamische Vorteile haben.


Wie auch immer. Der neue Ford F-150 ist ein echter US Pick Up. Die Amis (und nicht nur die) werden ihn lieben. Besonders mit V8 Motor! (Fotos: Ford/Np)
