The Brand new Ford F-150 unveiled at North American International Auto Show #FordNAIAS

Living in the country we drive a truck. We need a truck for day to day life here in the country. Towing, hauling, you name it. Runs to the dump, getting in and out of the snow and mud. As well , it looks really cool! Nothing beats driving a truck and sitting up higher than everyone else on the road. Makes me feel safe. 

One of the highlights from my recent trip to Detroit to check out the North American International Auto Show was the unveiling of the New Ford F-150 truck.


  • Tougher: All-new high-strength steel frame, high-strength aluminum-alloy body, more than 10 million miles of testing and Baja 1000-proven 2.7-liter EcoBoost® engine
  • Smarter: 11 new class-exclusive features, including 360-degree camera view, integrated loading ramps stowed in the pickup bed, 400-watt power outlets inside the cab, LED headlights and sideview mirror spotlights, and remote tailgate release
  • More capable: Up to 700 pounds less weight plus four engine choices for an impressive combination of power, capability and efficiency

Ford claims this is their toughest F-150 yet. And from what I saw at the press conference and auto show, I believe them!

Several groundbreaking new productivity features debut in the all-new F-150, including many class-exclusives. They include:

  • 360-degree camera view, using exterior cameras to create a bird’s-eye view of the truck to help the driver park, maneuver in tight spots and navigate down narrow roads and trails
  • Integrated loading ramps, which enable easy loading of ATVs, motorcycles and mowers
  • BoxLink, which is a combination of metal brackets and custom cleats used to secure a variety of accessories in the cargo box, from ramps to storage bins to bed dividers
  • LED headlamps and taillamps, which provide excellent nighttime visibility
  • Trailer hitch assist, a new rear view camera feature that adds a dynamic line based on steering wheel angle in the display to help customers line up truck and trailer without requiring a spotter or having to get out of the vehicle
  • Smart trailer tow module, using an all-new smart trailer tow wiring harness that helps identify and inform the driver of potential trailer connectivity issues, burned or unlit trailer marker lamps, and brake light and trailer battery faults
  • Remote tailgate, allowing for the tailgate to be locked, unlocked and released with the key fob – eliminating manual locking and increasing convenience and security. The tailgate also is damped, dropping down, hands-free, to a flat position when opened
  • High-wattage power outlets (400 watts, 110 volts) in the cab, allowing drivers to easily charge corded tools, battery chargers or mobile devices on-site or while driving
  • LED spotlights on sideview mirrors, which provide powerful, durable and bright lighting around the truck exterior
  • Latest EcoBoost® technology in an all-new, even more efficient 2.7-liter EcoBoost engine that features extremely high output and lightweight design
  • Next-generation tailgate step, which is now fully integrated inside the tailgate and virtually invisible when not in use

For me, country living mom to four kids. This truck rocks! I had the chance to get right up close and inside one and loved it. Loved everything about it. We could pack up the entire family including the dogs, and go on a road trip with this. Sadly, my budget will not allow it. But I can dream, or wait a few more years. Putting it on my wish list though, just in case 🙂

  1. I've been very impressed with the F150 yet when I heard about all the new features – I love it more! So impressive!

  2. We are in desperate need of a new truck. Our little pick up is too small now that we have two kids who want to go with us to the hardware store or when we haul stuff to the dump. I need to add the new F-150 to the list of trucks to check out!
