Following a preview earlier today, Ford has unveiled the 2015 F-150 at the North American International Auto Show.

Set to go on sale later this year, the F-150 follows in the footsteps of the Atlas concept and adopts a Super Duty inspired exterior that makes it look "Ford Tough."

Five different trim levels will be available and the entry-level XL comes sparsely equipped with a cloth bench front seat, a 4.2-inch audio / climate display and a 2.3-inch message center in the instrument cluster.

Moving up to the XLT adds chrome bumpers, a chrome grille and 17-inch aluminum wheels. The model also has SYNC AppLink which "provides voice-activated communication and entertainment including control of some smartphone applications."

The mid-level Lariat goes one step further with LED bed lights, a rearview camera, trailer hitch assist and 18-inch aluminum wheels.

The rugged, yet luxurious King Ranch features a two-tone exterior with running boards and a unique chrome grille with a body color mesh insert. The model also has LED puddle lights and a remote tailgate.

The interior boasts King Ranch-specific leather upholstery, heated and cooled front seats and a heated steering wheel. There's also a ten-speaker Sony audio system with HD Radio.

Last but not least, the F-150 Platinum has a satin finish grille, bright body-side moldings and 20-inch polished aluminum wheels. Other highlights include power-deployable running boards and LED head- and taillights.

The cabin is elegantly equipped with multi-contour leather front seats, genuine wood trim, a unique instrument cluster and a premium audio system.

Four different engines will be available including a 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6, a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6, a 3.5-liter V6 and a 5.0-liter Ti-VCT V8. Ford declined to release specifications but they confirmed all of them will be connected to a six-speed automatic transmission.

Despite being stuck with a six-speed gearbox, the 2015 F-150 should be more fuel efficient thanks to a fully boxed ladder frame that uses more high-strength steel which makes it "stronger and lighter" than its predecessor. The truck also uses has number of aluminum components which enables it to weigh up to 700 lbs (317 kg) less than the outgoing model.
