    My 2011 F-150 2 wheel drive work truck is getting replaced by a 2014 F-150 4x4 in a few months.

    I've looked on the Ford site, other than them saying it's 4 wheel drive, not much info. I loosely assume it would be close to a 2013? To my understanding Ford will have a major change again in 2015.

    For example, my 02 GMC is push button, Auto, 2Hi, 4 Low, 4 Hi
    Auto has done about everything I have asked of the truck. It sends power to other wheels when there is slippage.

    Just curious how the F-150 is set up. :scratch

    2wd, 4hi, 4lo.

    You can turn traction control off if you want.

    I am pretty sure that 2015 will bring changes. They are shutting down production in KC to retool in Michigan. Not sure if you notice but the hoods on the F-150's we have now are plastic. I'd love a Diesel in a 1/2 ton truck.

    Why would you want a lighter truck? Besides a boost in mileage the loss in weight would suck in snow. We have 3 2010-2011(explores and an f150) and I really don't care for them. I hate the low end shift point, when you pull into the drive way it will more or less launch you forward. On top of that they just feel cheap/ light to me.

    They should have never changed their older model design honestly. They were tanks. Ford two biggest mistakes IMO were getting rid of the 7.3l I know EPA stepped in but they could have redesigned them with low emission and more hp/ torque along with a heavier tranny. Also discounting their excursion model. I just hope they didn't lighten up the 6.7s to much.

    Well for starters: Better mpg. Better braking. Better handling. Possible higher tow rating/payload capacity. Less wear. In the case of aluminum-zero rust.
