Will the 2015 be a problem for short people?
 
I was looking at a lot of videos of the new 2015 F150 and noticed that the grill doesn't come up with the hood when raised. I'm 5'6" and have to grab the bottom of the grill to be able to lower the hood. I'd feel really dumb to have to add something to grab on to to lower the hood.

I often assist 'little old ladies' and others who can't reach the beans on the store's top shelves. If I'm not available, I guess the beans don't make it into their grocery cart and remain unsold. I often observe the same dilemma with those trying to load their carryon into the overhead bin, but somehow they manage. My short neighbor carries a compact stepstool in his vehicle for maintenance access.

Just drive with the hood open...you can't be any worse a driver than the rest of the fools on the roads.

Maybe Ford will make a power hood to go along with the power tailgate and power side steps and power pedals and power seat and power mirrors??

Install a front step that folds up when your done...then lift it 6 inches

I love the idea of having a 360 view with the four cameras.

In another related article, it was pointed out that the 2015 grill design eliminated the previous truck's painted fascia located between the top of the bumper and the bottom of the grill and replaced it with a vent that operates along with the active grill shutters to provide more air flow. In certain head-on photos of the grill, it can be seen that there is more design & tech going on in that vicinity than with former models.
The quote is from post #736 from the 2015 Pics Only thread.

Might explain why the hood and grill are now separate?
