Ford Demonstrates its Snow Plow Option for 2015 F-150 [w/Video]

With parts of the northeastern United States covered by mountains of snow, Ford thought it would be a good idea to talk about the snow plow option it offers for the 2015 F-150 pickup truck.

As the only light-duty truck with an available snow plow prep kit for every cab (Regular, SuperCab and SuperCrew), the 2015 F-150 knows a thing or two about moving snow around.

Available as a $50 option on the 2015 F-150 with the 5.0-liter V8 engine and 4WD (for XL, XLT and Lariat trim levels), the snow plow prep option (plow not included) allows owners to become the saviors of their neighborhoods.

F-150 owners with snow plow prep option can be equipped with a plow at a Ford Qualified Vehicle Modifier, with the maximum recommended light-duty plow weight being over 450 pounds (204 kg). When snow plow mode is activated via the push of a button, the vehicle temporarily turns off nonessential features to provide dedicated power for the plow.
