Revolutionary 2015 Ford F-150 eagerly anticipated at Wisconsin dealership Maritime Ford awaits the arrival of new models

MANITOWOC, Wis., June 6, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The 2015 Ford F-150s are not going to be released until later this year.  That fact has not slowed the enthusiasm for the new pickup truck in Wisconsin.  With new features and innovations, anticipation is even greater this year for the legendary Ford truck than in years past.

Much of the added buzz surrounding this year's model stems from Ford making significant changes to the body of the F-150.  Traditional steel has been replaced by a military-grade aluminum alloy throughout the body.  The frame of the vehicle is still made with high strength steel, however.

This innovation has led to a large weight reduction--by as much as 700 pounds--in Ford's flagship vehicle.  Cutting that amount of weight from from the F-150 promises to increase fuel efficiency substantially.  

A major alteration involving the production of the best selling vehicle of the last 32 years and best selling pickup truck of the last 43 has many people interested in the impact of the changes.  While the new model is not available to the public yet, Ford has been field testing six aluminum F-150 prototypes since 2011.  Reports on the prototypes' durability and performance have been positive.

Customers in the Manitowoc, Wis. area will be able to find 2015 Ford F-150 models at Maritime Ford.  Located at 1305 Franklin St, the dealership has been in business since 1913.  Maritime Ford offers both new and used vehicles and has a full service department.  General information pertaining to the dealership can be found at The sales department can be reached at 920-684-0261.
