Just in time for the cold winter time filled with snow adventures, Ford has introduced a new tool in its arsenal against Mother Nature. Brand’s new snow plow prep option will be an available option on the exclusive 2015 F-150.
In fact, the US automaker is the only one to offer a light-duty snow plow prep option across all cab configurations. This includes Regular, SuperCab and SuperCrew. The snow plow mode is activated via the push of a button. As a consequence, the vehicle temporarily turns off nonessential features to provide dedicated power for the plow.

Hi, guys, this was awesome – Ford took the F-150 EcoBoost into the forest, where it shot a series of Web-based documentaries about what the truck can do. Simply put, the F-150 was forced to pull some logs through the narrow roads of the forest, just to show that the 420 lb.-ft of torque are for real. The truck pulled logs weighing from 4,000 to 9,000 pounds, heavy enough to kick into action the truck’s great torque/rpm combination (420 lb.-ft. at 2,500 rpm). Did it manage to impress?

After all, Bigfoot has left its Ford pickup body for a new Chevrolet Silverado one. For more than 35 years Bigfoot was associated with Ford, but no more. We all know, that for many people this news would hurt so much, but there it is – Bigfoot changes the team. There are so much news that we all would take easily, but not and this one.
Bigfoot is said to lead the monster truck public relationships, but Ford dropped its sponsorship of the team in 2007. That left Firestone tires as the main sponsor, and since the company also throws plenty of cash at the Major League Baseball All-Star Game, it’s aching for some cross-promotion. Since Chevrolet also sponsors the event, Big Foot will be wearing new skin and a heart transplant. We’ll see what is going to happen now.
