In addition, the F-150 SuperCab 5 ½- foot box is a new offering and a full-size pickup truck exclusive. This contributes to confident, stress-free trailering, aided by powerful new braking capability. At both the driver and outboard front passenger positions, safety belts are equipped with pyrotechnic pretensioners and load-limiting retractors. The combination makes for a calm, quiet confidence that all drivers will appreciate. They're gonna charge 1300 to remove the head and 30 an hour for labor if their special tool which they charge you 200 to use whether it comes out or not doesn't work.
The new F-150 has three-point belts at all outboard seating positions and all rear seating positions in SuperCab and SuperCrew. If you haven't flushed it out in a few years, it's probably time. The newly engineered chassis and seamless powertrains make pulling a trailer easier than ever. The combination of Tough Truck capability and refinement sets a new standard for the industry. Rather than being welded or bolted to the back of the fully boxed bumper beam, the front frame rails extend through cutouts in the beam to its front face, where they are welded in place. For SuperCab models, that extra length means increased rear-seat comfort for three adults in the rear seat.
Contractors and personal-use buyers may have different needs and wants in their F-150, but they all use the truck as a tool — to get the job done, to get their gear to the recreation area or to get to work between weekends. With a driving feel that is designed to be plush yet connected to the road, F-150 has a front suspension system that readily absorbs bumps but stands strong against steering forces. In low range, electronic throttle control allowed engineers to incorporate a dedicated accelerator response strategy for better control of torque in the most challenging and slippery conditions. The result is increased stiffness and stronger attachment points for the brackets that attach the body and suspension to the frame — and minimal shake and shudder on rough roads. Precise steering, a laterally stiff rear suspension with outboard shock absorbers, larger brakes and the new 5. With a maximum tow rating of 9,500 pounds and maximum payload capacity of 2,900 pounds, the new F-150 is the most capable full-size pickup under 8,500 pounds.
It outsells every other full-size truck brand. Variable camshaft timing allows the valves to be operated at different points in the combustion cycle, to provide performance that is precisely tailored to specific engine speed and load at that instant. This produces seamless and consistent engine response, improved fuel economy and enhanced integration of vehicle systems, such as the transmission, variable camshaft timing, vehicle speed control and idle speed control. The cabin is wider than ever before and its front seat is roomier, yet the door armrests extend far enough for smaller drivers to use comfortably. In the first moments of a frontal impact, the pretensioners pull the lap and shoulder belts tighter, which helps to reduce slack in the belts. Many are even factory certified! These configurations gave F-Series customers true personal-use versatility — without compromising tough truck capability.
In combination with precise control of spark timing, fuel injection and use of electrically controlled Charge Motion Control Valves in the intake runners, this technology produces improved power and torque, particularly at the lower engine speeds that are so important to applications such as towing and heavy hauling. While the most dramatic improvement in the F-150 driving experience comes on-road, Ford has steadily improved off-pavement performance. For the new F-150, the most aggressive use yet of structural adhesives on a Ford truck helps to spread loads over the length of a seam, to maintain long-term body stiffness. You can still have the fluid run through the radiator if you'd like or you can separate the systems all together. Four-wheel-drive models use the proven manual- or electronic shift-on-the-fly transfer case of the current F-150 and a selection of optional limited-slip rear axles.
New features also include standard tilt steering wheel and a center display system in the instrument panel. It exceeds rigorous new federal safety standards for air bag and offset crash performance. Reinforcements on the frame rails further improve the frame stiffness there. Regular Cab SuperCab SuperCrew 4x2 4x4 4x2 4x4 4x2 4x4 4. In a severe frontal impact, lower suspension control arms are designed to fracture, further absorbing crash energy. Four axle ratios — from 3.
Ninety percent of this torque is available at 2,000 rpm for strong towing performance and solid acceleration while hauling heavy loads. It also is easier to manufacture. The new F-150 has been designed to achieve exceptional handling, ride and quietness due in part to a solid and stable fully boxed frame with hydroformed front rails. The entire frame is welded together, built to last. In addition to the benefits of the new electronic throttle control system, the 4.
The optional running boards were moved lower and farther outboard to be more useful for stepping up into the cab. Our customers literally come from all across the state- and other states too! Each series provides new attributes and comfort and convenience features — many of which are firsts in the full-size segment. If it's overheating, you might be pulling more than it's rated for. My husband did on ours and now one is broke off inside it and we have to take the head off and all kinds of crazy stuff that's gonna cost a lot of money. Across the line-up, the new full-size truck from the Tough Truck leader has the strength, technology and know-how to protect its occupants.
The new F-150 does that with the courage of a leader, launching a new era of Built Ford Tough. Lariat owners use their trucks for a multitude of purposes from everyday driving and road trips, to towing boats or travel trailers. A more vertical tumblehome the inward bow of the side windows balances the visual weight of the lower body while allowing nearly flush side glass, a mark of refinement. It combines off-road capability with a bold and distinctive individual statement. The new fully boxed frame features hydroformed sections for improved torsional and bending strength. The steering is crisp and direct, the ride is plush yet controlled, the braking is strong and assured, and the cabin is quiet. It achieves 231 horsepower at 4,750 rpm and an impressive 293 foot-pounds of torque at 3,500 rpm.
