Snow plow prep option now offered on 2015 Ford F-150

Article by Anita Panait, on February 13, 2014

The all-new 2015 Ford F-150 will now be offered with the company’s new snow plow prep option. The option will be available across all cab configurations – Regular, SuperCab and SuperCrew -- and across XL, XLT and Lariat trim levels. Once a driver activates the snow plow mode with just a push of a button, 2015 Ford F-150 temporarily turns off non-essential features to provide dedicated power for the plow.

The snow plow prep option package could only be availed if the truck is equipped with a 5.0-liter V8 engine and four-wheel drive. “The new 2015 F-150 is the toughest F-150 ever, and by using more high-strength steel in its frame and advanced materials in the body, we’ve made the new truck up to 700 pounds lighter,” remarked Eric Peterson, Ford F-150 marketing manager. “This leads to more capability and better handling, which is exactly what you’d want for plowing.”

He remarked that the snow plow prep kit will help ensure customers have “even more tools at their disposal to get the job done.” Once owners receive their new F-150 with the snow plow prep option, they will need to take their truck to a Ford Qualified Vehicle Modifier to purchase and install the plow hardware. The maximum light-duty plow weight will be over 450 pounds. Ford will announce pricing for the snow plow prep option, excluding the plow.
