The Texas State Fair is a preferred location for pickup-truck producers to reveal their most modern and supreme products to the true fans of their work. Even though it didn’t get the complete transformation as the most modern GM trucks, 2015 Ford F-450 got power-increasing tweaks, a stronger structure and a slight cosmetic makeover.
2015 Ford F-450 Diesel Engine and Performance
Externally, 2015 Ford F-450 looks almost the same as its predecessor. The truly immense news are under the skin of the truck: Ford’s in-house, Power Stroke 6.7-liter diesel engine gets a host of renovations to generate more power. Though the exact power increase has not been revealed by Ford, the manufacturer assures a boost over the existing Power Stroke’s inspiring torque of 800 lb-ft and power output of 400 hp.
2015 Ford F-450 Specs
To attain its secret power gains, Ford hits on an improved turbocharger through a single compressor vane in place of the double-sided vane of the outgoing model. This offers the exhaust gases of an additional exploitable surface area to work the compressor, enabling the new Ford F-450 to dial back the increase and ditch the waste gate of the old model.
The larger turbo perks the exhaust breaking up as well, which can be made active through a dashboard control. Working in performance with the novel turbocharger are a tweaked fuel pump, innovative fuel injector tips and a novel exhaust heat sensor that causes a more precise control over fuel release.
2015 Ford F-450 Interior
Interior has quality leather, luxury ventilated seats and high-tech equipment like the MyFord Touch electronics interface. But on the other hand, it would probably need some more update because it has outdated styling and controls wich are not very well laid out.
2015 Ford F-450 Petrol Engine
The elevated output is dispersed to the back wheel or all the wheels through the personal six-speed TorqShift automatic transmission of Ford, which is strengthened by means of a novel torque changes. The standard v8, 6.2-liter, 385-hp petrol engine carries over unaffected.
It is expected that the new Ford F-450 will arrive with five variants such as:
1. Super Duty F-450 XLT
2. Super Duty F-450 XL
3. Super Duty F-450 Lariat
4. Super Duty F-450 Platinum
5. Super Duty F-450 King Ranch
The 6-speed SelectShift® TorqShift® automatic transmission of the new Ford F-450 is designed for lofty-torque performance and reliability.
Big, sturdy gears can effortlessly assume the heavy torque claims of either the available 6.7-liter Power Stroke® Turbo Diesel engine or the standard 8-valve 6.2-liter gas engine. The TorqShift transmission tenders a live-drive power takeoff stipulation available with the split-shaft ability. An output gear is linked straight to the crankshaft of the engine to control an aftermarket power takeoff anytime the engine is in operation, whether you are at a stop or in motion, and allows you to use applications, such as tree-trimming equipment, a salt spreader and many others. Split-shaft ability enables many accessories to be functioned simultaneously with the truck stopped.
