2015 Ford F-150 deliveries will arrive later than expected

Article by Andrew Christian, on August 23, 2014

For those eager to get their hands on the brand new aluminum-bodied 2015 Ford F-150 we have some bad news. According to a letter signed by Ford’s distribution planning manager Kevin Giacomini and John Bradley, the first customers will get their new F-150 by the year end while those who will order specific configurations may not receive their vehicle until early 2015.

Apparently, there is a logical explanation for this as Ford wants to make sure that they not compromise their commitment to quality just to deliver the F-150 few weeks earlier. Next week, on Monday, Ford will close the Dearborn truck plant located in Michigan, as it needs to make the modifications for producing the 2015 F-150.

The first pre-production prototypes will roll off the production line on October 22. As you may know already, Ford had several troubles when it launched the 2013 Lincoln MKZ and the vehicle arrived three months later after some quality glitches.

Apparently, Ford doesn’t want to make the same mistake with the aluminum-bodied 2015 F-150 and will take its time to make sure that everything is set. Last month we also announced that Ford will raise pricing of the 2015 F-150 by $340 to $3,615.

The cheapest models will be the 2015 Ford F-150 XL, which will be powered by the 3.5-liter V6 engine and will start at $26,220 including the $1,195 destination charge. Meanwhile, the 2015 Ford F-150 XLT will start at $31,980 including shipping, showing a modest $350 price increase.

The 2015 Ford F-150 Platinum will be the most expensive version and will start at $52,155, including shipping or course. 2015 Ford F-150 King Ranch starts at $46,690 showing a $3,615 price increase.

The new 2.7-liter EcoBoost engine will be available as an option for $495, while the new twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6 will cost $1,995.
