We could bore you with tedious descriptions of the BoxLink cargo management system available in the 2015 Ford F-150, but we’d rather show you a video that shows what it can do. It’s a pretty neat system that allows users to attach to the BoxLink cleats in four locations, or hook directly to the reinforced plates located on the truck bed sidewalls. The cleats can accommodate a cross-box load of 275 lb. and a diagonal load of 600 lb.
The new F-150 also offers LED bed lighting, and the availability of power tailgate locking and release, as well as available telescoping cargo ramps that can be stowed on the sides of the box with die-cast zinc the BoxLink cleats. F-150 XLT models and above get a standard power locking tailgate, as well as the option of a power release. This works via a button on the key fob, and unlocks and releases the damped tailgate. Like a remote release for a car trunk, it opens on its own, dropping down to a flat position. In addition, Lariat Mid or Luxury, King Ranch and Platinum models have the remote tailgate release and feature an LED spotlight integrated into the release handle that illuminates the trailer hitch.
If that’s not enough, A.R.E. Accessories has adapted its LS II Series fiberglass tonneau cover to the 2015 F-150. It features an OEM-quality standard lock and latch, and a lift assist system that makes opening and closing he cover easier. Both the tonneau and its painted finish are warrantied for the life of the original pickup on which it is installed. — CAS
