Professional Tool Reviews for Pros


Prepare for 2015 Ford F-150 Discounts

2015 Ford F-150

In the market for a new work truck? Maybe you’re just curious what’s out there, or you just love trucks. Perhaps the new model year is your cue to shop sales on the previous model year. Whatever your reason, we’re committed to bringing you the best in professional tools. Pros know that includes the vehicle you’re using to get to the jobsite. The obvious place for us to start was with one of the most popular trucks in the land—the 2015 Ford F-150. Ford has enjoyed a long reign with the F-150, leading the class in popularity and sales. Even as a kid, the Ford F-150 was the truck I wanted to get my hands on. Now, with the 2016 Ford F-150 trucks getting ready for release, 2015 Ford F-150 discounts are in the air! Last year the 2015 Ford F-150 started arriving at dealers in December—so even if the 2016 model lags a bit, you can begin to look for pre-orders to get current models to start dropping a bit in price.


Ford F-150 Discounts Come with Benefits

So what’s the really big deal with the 2015 Ford F-150, and why might you want to snag one as the new models come out? Aluminum. Ford has taken a leap by making the body out of aluminum. This is the same kind of evolution that we saw in high performance bikes (forgive me, the Tour de France just ended, and I’m a bit of a geek). Steel frames gave way to aluminum. They are lighter, absorb vibration better, and aren’t subject to rusting. These are the same benefits that we see in the 2015 Ford F-150. It’s dropped some 700 pounds of weight depending on the trim package (the Super Crew, for example, does even better than the regular cab since it sheds more comparative weight). That in itself improves fuel efficiency, which is now top in its class. Towing and payload capacities have also increased. By the way, in pro bikes, aluminum gave way to carbon fiber…I’m just sayin’.

There is one potential issue though. Aluminum is more expensive than steel, so that is going to show up in the price and possibly your insurance premium. Still, 2015 Ford F-150 models have been selling almost as fast as they can get them to their dealers. That’s a pretty good indication of what end-users think. Let’s take a closer look at the available options to see if current and upcoming Ford F-150 discounts are going to be enough to get you to pull the switch on a new work truck.

There are a host of options other options from which to choose—from colors to electronics and wheels to heated seats. This makes for thousands of possible combinations, and there’s really not enough time or space to go into all of them (plus it’s more fun to window shop or go online and play with Ford’s build-your-own truck configurator).

The bottom line is: Keep your eyes peeled for Ford F-150 discounts as the new models get closer to pre-order and release. You’re liable to save a considerable amount on this year’s model—and the changes to the 2016 truck aren’t all that significant no that Ford has gone with the aluminum body style.
