Ok, I pulled the trigger today. Ordered a F150 Lariat, 3.5 Ecoboost , 4x4, Max tow (3.55 e-locker), tow mirrors, 36 gallon fuel tank, no sunroof and about every luxury item I wanted this morning. And yes, Heavy Duty payload was not available for this truck. According to Ford my payload capacity is 2,020 lbs and Max tow is 10,700. This will work perfect for my needs and wants.

I drove the Ram 2500 diesel yesterday and it is a great truck. Just a little large for my everyday driver and I know my wife would not drive it because it intimidated her.

Just ordered our 2015 F-150XLT SCab 8'Box, 3.5L V6 EcoBoost with Max-Tow and Heavy-Duty Payload Packages (w/extended fuel tank in Bronze Fire today!
I was not happy to read the attachment where extended range fuel tank will add 12 weeks lead time. I called my salesman and he had not heard this. He says I should have a VIN on Friday and will know then. We are leaving the 2nd week in July so this may not work as well as I planned

We saw plenty of F-150s in the lot, most with the extended fuel tanks (including Lariats)... Hoping you get a different answer, fingers crossed!

Everything we want for our build won't be available until 7/6, so we knew this going in...

Would love to hear what you learn, anything earlier would just be a bonus (what's the saying; under promise/over deliver?!)

Interesting. I just checked on a 2016 Super Duty last week, and the build time for that was June 2015. And the article indicates that some models of the 2015 F150s will just start production in July 2015. Go figure.

Tell me about it! We were all set to order a 2015 F-250 and were told the cutoff was April 2. Really?! Its only APRIL!! I'm with you, go figure... It is what it is, overall, I'm happier with our choice for the F-150. Everything happens for a reason...

Check the fine print on axles and springs. In my case the actual equipment on the King Ranch is Max Payload, just not stated as such.

Do you have the 7 lug wheels instead of the 6 lug? I know the 2013's you could only get the 17 inch wheels with 7 lugs if you had the Max payload.

There is a lot of confusion among many on the payload packages. There is a "payload package" on the 2.7 ecoboost, and it has been available for quite a while. Unfortunately, some advertise or state that their 2.7 ecoboost payload package F150 has the "Heavy Duty Payload" package, which is available with only the 3.5 Ecoboost and 5.0.


The HD payload package is only available on XL, XLT and Lariat 500A package, and option groups that can be ordered. I ordered one since I would choose capabilities over the gadgets. Other than the one seen in Canada, (probably a test or training build truck) we still expect full production of the HD payload package trucks to commence in July.

From Ford Build website:
Heavy Duty Payload Package Includes:

• 3.73 Electronic-locking rear axle
• 9.75-inch gearset
• Upgraded springs and auxiliary transmission oil cooler
• XL: 17-inch Silver Steel Wheels
• XLT/LARIAT: 18-inch Silver Aluminum Wheels


It also includes commercial-rated tires.

The 17" wheels are 7-lug and the 18" are 6-Lug
