My old 4.2? You're giving it too much credit

I don't disagree 325hp from a 4 banger is impressive it just doesn't seem right in a truck. I'd be naive to think that one day V8's won't be a thing of the past with the trend thats forming.

Am I misunderstanding how they will implement the Fx4 package from now on ? My understanding is that they are getting rid of FX4 as its own trim level, they are making it an accessory package on all F150 models. So a Platinum can have the FX4 look, or a KingRanch can have the FX4 exterior look, etc etc.

This should be a GOOD thing. No ?

Not a good thing if you're not a fan of the Platinum or King Ranch trim levels.

They're nice and all, no slight on anyone who chooses to own one, but for my personal taste, too much bling bling and chrome.

^Exactly! I am not a fan of all the chrome. So as long as the FX4 upgrade still gets rid of all the chrome I will take one, but if there is chrome and it is bascically a sticker and suspension upgrade package like on the 97-03 F150 with FX4 upgrade I will not.

Found this. It's a bit clearer...maybe.

http://www.autoevolution.com/news/20...ery-84665.html

In total, the 2015 F-150 will be offered in five trims that will come in no fewer than 13 styling combinations. The added choices come from new appearance packages (Sport and Chrome) that will be available on the XL, XLT, Lariat and King Ranch models as well as the FX4 Off-Road Package that will be offered on all trims including the Platinum. As Ford says, “Sport creates the look. FX4 adds the tough

Great link Dwayne, thanks for posting that up.

This just confirms my choice to grab a 2014…..not feeling the love for the 2015.

Hmm have to wait and see if I like the Lariat Sport. Could be promising (hopefully).

Feeling the Sport package trucks. According to this there is an XL super crew now?

Agreed, if I had to pick one, the Lariat Sport package probably looks the most appealing, with it's lack of chrome.

Anyone have any idea what the "Magnetic" thing is all about ?

Magnetic three bar grille, Magnetic surround and Magnetic painted pockets on the wheels, must be 2015 for "Plasti-dipped." lol

That would make sense. I was gonna walk by one with some nails and see what happens but you may be on to something.
