2015 Ferrari FF – The Most Practical Ferrari Ever
Despite all the talk about the 2015 Ferrari FF being pretty similar to the last year’s version, the rumors are that the manufacturers might surprise the consumers with something new, whether it be styling or comfort, we do not know yet, however, it is all going to be revealed before the year ends.
When it comes to Ferrari, practicality is probably the last thing, both, manufacturers and buyers think about. However, things have taken a turn with the all-new 2015 Ferrari FF. And why exactly do we say that? Well because , you not only get a four-seat vehicle, you also get a hatchback which is a complete surprise as Ferrari has always preferred going for either convertibles or conventional coupes. And this isn’t it. With the latest version, the drivers get an all-wheel-drive vehicle that won’t hold back whether driving on a rough road or snowy terrain.
Reading all these might lead you in to thinking that perhaps the 2015 Ferrari FF is just another Subaru Outback under Ferrari’s label; the reality is far from it. The vehicle still has a lot that is pretty similar to a typical Ferrari. For instance, it comes with a 6.3-L V6 engine that is capable of producing 651 horsepower. The transmission mated with the engine is a lightning-quick 7-speed dual-clutch. The maximum speed goes over 200 mph (208 mph to be exact). As far as the pick up speed is concerned, well the vehicle leaves quite a few sports behind by some distance, reaching the mark of 60 mph from 0 in just over 3 seconds. Now that is fast!
If you have owned a Ferrari yourself, you know that the pricing can actually be pretty high and it’s something you already prepare your mind for. No surprises with the 2015 Ferrari FF either, the base version starts from $300,000. Now, we have to keep in mind that this is a base version with no options what so ever. Let us add an option to a base version, say, we add a sunroof. That will cost us around $15,000, which easily takes the price to a $350,000. It is also important not to forget that this does not include the fees and taxes. So, if you are willing to make a purchase, price is something that you will always have to keep in mind.
As far as the fuel economy is concerned, it gives 11 mpg in the city and 16 mpg on the highway, which obviously isn’t great, but it is also important not to forget that it’s a performance oriented car. Also, the back seats are a little too tight. Despite all that, a lot of enthusiasts believe that, with a hatchback and four seats, this is probably going to be the most practical Ferrari ever. One drivers could use as an everyday vehicle. However, all that still remains to be seen as the vehicle is expected to be out in the market later this year.
