Ford Motor Company is rapidly nearing the start of production for the 2015 Ford F150 pickup, with the River Rouge plant workers hurrying to transform the factory from one that is intended to build trucks out of steel to one that will make the 2015 F150 out of aluminum. Production is slated to begin very soon and dealerships actually began taking orders a few months back, but with the build tool going live on Ford.com – this is the first time that consumers can option out their next new truck from beginning to end.

Building My Ideal 2015 F150
Were I to build my dream 2015 Ford F150, I would start with a Platinum package with the 6.5 foot box, four wheel drive and the 3.5L EcoBoost V6. I would opt for the Max Trailer Tow Package, the spray in bedliner, the box side steps and the twin panel moonroof. Oh, and I would pick Blue Jeans for my exterior color which, when you add everything up, gives me a 2015 F150 with an MSRP of $59,165.
