Sometimes, it’s hard for a driver to know exactly what they want out of a new vehicle. After all, it might never occur to you that having the front door beltline wide enough to act as an arm rest is even possible. But now that you know it’s out there, we’re pretty sure you’ll agree with us that it’s a great feature in a truck. And that’s why, when designing the 2015 Ford F-150, Ford engineers worked hard to make sure that this all-new truck has the features drivers want – even if they don’t realize they want them.
Many of these features were designed based on customer research and customer feedback, ensuring that they really are driver friendly. For instance, customer research was the force between the new clustered control buttons that keep similar controls right next to each other, making them easier and more intuitive to use. And customer feedback was behind the design of the instrument cluster, and the absence of entertainment information from that part of the truck. In order to keep the 2015 Ford F-150 functioning as a tool, as well as a comfortable ride, the instrument cluster focuses exclusively on vehicle information, while entertainment information appears in the center stack. Other small, driver-friendly details include finger grooves on the steering wheel, a box step large enough for a full-sized work boot to fit on it while the driver steps up, and grooves on the tailgate handle, making it easier to grip and open with one hand.
We feel confident that once you experience these driver friendly touches that make the 2015 Ford F-150 a better ride, a better tool, and a better driving experience, you’ll be dying to get one for yourself. Luckily, you have a great local headquarters for finding a Ford truck. Lawrenceburg, Frankfort, and Louisville drivers will find Ford truck models and a great sales staff right here at O’Brien Ford of Shelbyville.
