2015 Ford F-150 Offers $50 Snow Plow Prep Package

During a snowy afternoon in Detroit, we wondered: "Why plow with a half-ton?" Typically, snow plowing is reserved for larger, heavy-duty pickup trucks. Ford says this setup appeals to the occasional snow plow operator  a farmer, a homeowner with a long driveway or a small business with a parking lot. Instead of firing up the heavy-duty, these ownerscan adapt a new Ford F-150 to handle the job.

Ford says it is just beginning to offer the package for half-ton pickups and many dealerships are ordering the option for trucks to besold off their lots. Currently, Ford has about 1,100 orders for the Snow Plow Prep Package (just $50), which requires some changes to the software program via a dedicated plow switch found on the F-150 instrument panel and an extra hot wire near the driver's knee to power the plow joystick toggle. With that option loaded, customers can then take their truck to a third-party plow manufacturer for additional electrical wiring and under-frame hardware items.
