2015 Ford F-150 Trim GuideWe already know that the 2015 Ford F-150 has a base price coming in at just $395 more than the 2014 model, despite all of the new standard tech and aluminum-intensive construction in the upcoming version. Now the Blue Oval is finally giving us an idea of what that extra money actually buys customers, with the release of the appearance guide for its latest pickup.

The guide basically explains everything you could want to know about what changes occur among the multitude of trims on the 2015 F-150. There are five levels for the new truck. Although, that is something of a misnomer because most of them are also available with either Sport or Chrome packages, plus the FX4 Off-Road option with Hill Descent Control, an electronic-locking rear axle, off-road shocks and skid plates. With 13 available colors, including 4 new ones, and 14 wheel designs in various sizes, pickup buyers should have no problem specing one to fit their style.

The lineup starts out with the base XL with a black grille and fascia and 17-inch wheels. However, across most of the range the Sport and Chrome packages are also available to add either body-color or chrome accents, respectively. Next up is the XLT with a standard chrome grille but also available with a black, billet-style one with a body-color surround. Things really start getting plush with the Lariat model with leather trim, a three-bar front end and 18-inch wheels. The King Ranch sticks with that look but adds power running boards, 20-inch wheels and two-tone paint. Finally, the top-dog Platinum is all about bling with yet another frontal design, chrome door handles and mirror caps, a big logo running across the tailgate and more.

All of the options are certainly a lot to take in, and Ford clearly doesn't want any potential customers to fall through the cracks in terms getting exactly what they want from their F-150. Check out the gallery to see all of the differences between the trims for yourself.

      cant wait till everyone starts commenting the $395 price increase is a little gamesmanship....theres no mention of over $500 increase on 5.0 engines and other options. That said, truck has GM speeding up their next trucks developement, and guess what, its going to utilize Aluminum and smaller turboed engines!!! Catchup 101

        I suspect that for 2016 we will see a larger price increase of $1K or more. The idea is to quell fears that moving to Aluminum would jack up the prices. Like the C7 Stingray, you keep prices in check to keep your loyal buyers happy, then quietly raise the price when everyone else wants theirs.

      The best thing about the new F-150? It spells the end of the road for Tundra and Titan.

        I think the Titan met the end of the road years ago

        Why does it spell the end? Neither truck was ever class leading, and they still sell them, obviously not in remotely close numbers. I also don't see why you want LESS choice for consumers. You don't like either of those trucks? Simple, buy the one you like.

      As far as I'm concerned, the XLT grille is the best looking. The XLT Sport and Chrome are the worst looking.

      I'm a Ford guy. I want to love it. I appreciate and am impressed by what it is. But I just find it hideous.

      I have had 5 F150s. This is by far, the ugliest ever. The tailgate looks silly, the sides look like a Ram, and those to little plastic wings on the grill are ridiculous. Out of all of them, red looks the best with the chrome grill. The stx and fx4s have always been my least favorite. If I bought another new truck, it would be a Silverado or Sierra. Never thought that day would come!

      Everyone has been chasing the look of Ram since 1994, and it clearlycontinues to this day... Imitation, the sincerest form of flattery.

        Ive heard people say that about Ford, but in general, mostly they have had their own look. Chevy for sure never since 94.

        Gm and Ford have never looked like the Ram since 1994 you doofus, take a good hard look at 'em. You would think by now they would all be identical by now. Geez.

      If I needed a truck, a Lariat Luxury with the Sport Appearance package and the 5.0 would fit the bill.
