Pricing for the 2015 Ford F-150 lineup was confirmed today by a Ford spokesman. The F-150 range has been simplified from 10 models to just five, with the base XL starting at $26,615 including destination.

With the STX trim eliminated, the next level up is the XLT, which starts at $31,925. Both XL and XLT models come standard with the new 3.5-liter V-6, which makes 283 hp and 255 lb-ft of torque. Both models increase by $395. The 2.7-liter EcBoost V-6, which makes 325 hp and 375 lb-ft, is available for the XL and XLT for $495. The 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 can be had for $1995 over the base V-6. The 2015 F-150 Lariat starts at $39,730, increasing by $895, and comes standard with the 2.7-liter EcoBoost.

The King Ranch model's starting price rises by $3615 to $49,690, while the Platinum trim increases by $3055 to $52,155. Both models come standard with the 5.0-liter V-8, but have the option of the 3.5-liter EcoBoost for $400. The 2.7-liter EcoBoost is not available on the two top-trim models.

Thanks to its aluminum-intensive body, a base 2015 Ford F-150 is manufacturer-estimated to weigh 4475 pounds -- a huge reduction from the outgoing steel-bodied truck's curb weight. Though the lineup consists of just five models now, we recently spied a successor to the current SVT Raptor testing on public roads.

Ford dealers will begin taking orders for the 2015 F-150 this week, which means we should see more details on package and option pricing soon.
