The F-Series is a series of trucks from Ford Motor Company that have been sold for over 5 decades. The most popular variant of the F-Series is the F-150, a full-size pickup truck. It has been the best-selling vehicle in the world for 23 years and the best-selling truck in the United States (and possibly the world) for 29 years. Analysts estimate that the F-Series alone makes up half of the Ford Motor Company's profits in recent years.

The first F-series truck from Ford was introduced in 1948, replacing the company's previous car-based pickup line. It was a modern-looking truck with a one-piece windshield and integrated headlights. The F-series was available as three models:

  • F-1 - half-ton
  • F-2 - three-quarter-ton
  • F-3 - Heavy Duty (HD for short)

With the 2007 Model Year, Ford is currently in its 11th Generation of the F-Series.

Recent Changes

  • For 2011, Ford officially drops the 5.4 litre V8 from the SVT Raptor lineup in favor of the 6.2. Ford is also officially introducing the four-door SVT Raptor SuperCrew which adds a full 12 inches to the two-door. Other new things for the supertruck include a new paint called Ingot Silver Metallic, black accent graphics and standard 4.2-inch LCD display. [1]
  • For 2011, Ford updates the Harley-Davidson Edition with the same 6.2-liter V8 found on the 2010 SVT Raptor. The new engine pumps out 411 hp and 434 lb.-ft. of torque, providing a maximum towing capacity of 9,300 lb. It is hooked up to a 6-speed automatic transmission as standard with manual gearshift functionality available as an option. As before the Harley-Davidson is available only in Tuxedo Black and Ingot Silver paint jobs but inside it now features equipment upgrades including a standard voice-activated Navigation System with an 8-inch touch screen, a power moonroof, a rear view camera, second-row heated seats, special ambient lighting and a remote start system.[2]
  • For 2011, the Ford Super Duty gets a new schonz. It also gets a new diesel mill called the "Scorpion" 6.7 litre Power Stroke V8 which can also run on B20 biodiesel and a new 6.2 litre petrol V8. Both engines are attached to the 6R140 heavy-duty TorqShift six-speed automatic transmission that features manual SelectShift control and a Tow Haul option with integrated exhaust braking.[3]
  • For 2010, Ford unveiled the 14th iteration of the F150 Harley Davidson. It will be available only in "Lava Red" or "Tuxedo Black". [4]
  • For 2010, Ford released the Off-Road-oriented F-150 SVT Raptor R. The 7 in wider behemoth sports an SVT-tuned 5.4 litre 24 valve Triton V8 which develops 320 horses and 390 lb.-ft. of torque (528 Nm). A 6.2 liter 16 valve V-8 (16 valves instead of 24 valve for better torque charictaristics) producing 400 HP and 400 FT-LB of torque is promised to appear soon. The vehicle is awash with evidence of its intentions - the front bumper, for example, has been clipped down and now prominently displays a massive skid plate, the hood is bristled with heat extractors, the new front and rear suspension built by Fox Racing Shox has been built to give 11.2 inches and 13.4 inches of travel, respectively and the wheels are wrapped in heavy duty BFGoodrich All-Terrain TA/KO 315/70-17 tires. [5][6]


  • The Harley Davidson edition F150 changed from a Supercab configuration to a Supercrew. An FX2 sport model became available on certain models, and features a billet grille, model specific 18 or 20 inch wheels, and a unique interior. A tire pressure monitoring system and rear seat entertainment system are also newly available for 2007
  • For 2008, in anticipation of both Ford and Harley Davidson's 105th Anniversaries, the F-150 Harley Davidson gets a refresh.
  • On September 2008, after having sold over 33 million examples in its lifetime, Ford unveiled a 60-unit limited edition version of the F-150, dubbed "Ford F-150 60th Anniversary", in commemoration to the 60th anniversary of Ford' most successful model.[7]

Performance

Please make sure to write information of the vehicle's performance in a third-person point of view. This section should include information about the car's acceleration figures, handling, braking, etc.

If using information gathered from Road Test articles from a reputable automotive source, then please make sure to cite the quote.

Reliability

MSN Autos reports that the F150 has "Infrequent problems reported, all with low repair costs" in 6 out of 7 categories. The only problem is in the accessories category, with an occasional failure of the brake shift interlock. This is a minor problem and an easy one to fix, so as such, the F150 earns 5 out of 5 in the reliability category.

  • RECALL ALERT: On June 05, 2008, Ford issued a recall affecting 605,684 Ford F-150s and Lincoln Mark LTs built between MY2005-2006 and equipped with 5.4L 3-Valve V8s due to a faulty brake booster vacuum supply hose which may swell and lose retention force, a condition that could allow the hose to become detached from the fitting during an intake manifold backfire. Once this happens, the vehicle's power assist braking will be gone though Ford is quick to note basic braking will still be available. The recall is set to begin on July 7, 2008 and Ford urges all owners to have their vehicles turned in for repairs to their local dealer. [8]
  • RECALL ALERT: On May 12, 2009, Ford issued a recall affecting 8,735 2009 Ford F-150s due to a faulty brake lamp which may not engage when the brake pedal is depressed very mildly. The recall begins on May 13, 2009 and Ford urges owners to visit their local Ford dealer for inspection and replacement. Owners can contact Ford at 1-866-436-7332 or online at www.ownerconnection.com. This recall is filed under NHTSA Campaign ID Number 09V150000 N/A. [9]
  • RECALL ALERT: Ford F-250s and F-350s built from 1988-1991 had an ignition fault that can short circuit. The short circuit can overheat the wires and potentionally cause a fire in the steering column. [10]

Safety

Four-wheel antilock disc brakes are standard across the board, and traction control is optional on 2WD V8 models. New for 2007, a tire pressure monitoring system is now standard on all models. Unlike some of its competitors, the F-150 does not offer side airbags or stability control. Frontal impact testing by the NHTSA resulted in a perfect five-star rating. In offset-frontal crash testing conducted by the IIHS, the Ford F-150 earned a rating of "Good," the highest available, and a "Best Pick" designation.

Off-roading

The F-150 has been one of the most dependable off-roading trucks for many years. They are commonly fitted with suspension/body lifts to accommodate bigger tires and to allow more ground clearance.

Like it's cousin the Ford Bronco, older versions came standard with the robust Ford 9" axle. Their straight-axle setup and powerful engines made them ideal for plowing through mud. As such they have become very popular in mud bogging. After-market rear axle differential lockers are usually installed as well, and more demanding owners often swap out their 302/351 engines for a larger one with more torque like the Ford 429 or Ford 460. Common axle swaps for heavy off-road use include the Dana 70 and the Ford 10.25".

Resale Values

According to Kelley Blue Book, "The F-150 is expected to retain a better-than-average residual value, with the SuperCab models at the top of the chart, followed by the SuperCrew and then the Regular Cab. Over a five-year period, the F-150's projected residual value is expected to rate higher than the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Classic and Dodge Ram, and be on par with the Nissan Titan but below the Toyota Tundra."

The next major redesign came in 1980. The new truck had a squarer look, with sharp lines and flat panels. The Ranger trim line was dropped in 1982, since that name was to be applied to the new Ford Ranger compact pickup. Trim options were now XL, XLT, and XLT Lariat. The big-block V8 was dropped for 1980, but added again in 1983 along with a Diesel option. The base model was renamed to the now-familiar F-150 for 1984. In 1985 fuel injection became optional in the 5.0L. In 1986 this became the only 5.0L offered.

The 1987 refresh was evolutionary. The design was more streamlined, and maintenance items were made simpler. Rear antilock brakes were now standard, the first truck to boast this. The manual transmission was revised with five speeds in 1988, and the flareside box was dropped. For 1987 the 4.9L had standard fuel injection; for 1988, the 5.8L and 7.5L also gained fuel injection, with 1988 being the first year no carbureted engines were offered. 1988 also saw the replacement of the 6.9L diesel with a 7.3L International Harvester IDI diesel.

Four wheel drive improvements included the addition of automatic locking hubs for the F-150 in 1989, and for the rest in 1991. The 5.0 L truck also had an optional "Touch Drive" electronic transfer case.

Engines:

  • 1987-1991 - 300 in³ (4.9 L) straight-6, EFI, 150 hp (112 kW)

Ninth generation (1992–1996)

1992-96 F150 XLT 4x4
Enlarge
1992-96 F150 XLT 4x4

The 1992 truck was much more rounded and aerodynamic in appearance, and the flareside returned until 1996. The Lightning appeared in 1993. A CD player option was new for 1994, as was a driver's-side airbag and "CHMSL" third brake light. Following the lead of the Explorer, an Eddie Bauer trim line was added for 1994 and continued utill 1996.

There is a lot of mis-information about the 1992-1996/97 Ford F-350 and F-250 truck build options. Ford did make a 4x4, dual rear wheel (DRW ie. Dually) truck for the F-250HD (rare) and the F-350 which was available in regular cab, super cab and crew cab long bed trucks. There is a rare F-250HD version that is a super cab, dual rear wheel truck. There also was not an F-250 crew cab, with the long bed option, only a F-250 crew cab, short bed.

There were no F-250 or F-350 trucks made in 1998, so during the re-tooling process, Ford made a run-over of F-250 and F-350 trucks for 1997 and 1998. However, at this time (1997), Ford made a new and different body style for the F-150, and discontinued the Ford Bronco.

Also at this time, Ford and Centurion Vehicles of White Pigeon, Michigan teamed up, to make the first Excursion like vehicle. It was a Ford F-350 crew cab, with the rear half of a Ford Bronco, on a Ford regular cab long bed frame. Known as a C-350 or C-150. There was no C-250 Centurion. [11]They were made in few production numbers, and now concidered a rare, collectible vehicle.

Ford trailed rival General Motors trucks for much of the ninth generation, though sales steadily rose each year. 500,000 F-Series trucks were sold in 1992, but this rose to nearly 800,000 by 1996, and the Ford had overtaken the combined Chevrolet and GMC pickup sales for the first time in a decade.

Engines:

  • 1992-1996 - 300 in³ (4.9 L) straight-6, EFI, 150 hp
  • 1992-1996 - 460 in³ (7.5 L) 385 V8, EFI, 240 hp

Tenth generation (1997–2003)

Ford took the aero styling to its conclusion for 1997 with an extremely round nose on the new F-series. The "Super Duty" F series did not yet exist, so an F-250 was offered which was an F-150 with heavier duty axles and suspension, along with odd 7 lug wheels. With the arrival of the Super Duty, this F-250 "light duty" was offered as the "7700" package for the F-150 (noted on the tailgate emblem). A wide variety of body options were available: regular cab and SuperCab, standard or flareside boxes, and short and long beds. A new Lightning was introduced in 1999, and Harley-Davidson and King Ranch versions were also created. In 2001 the SuperCrew cab was introduced.

The super-duty F-250 and F-350 were retained on the old chassis until 1999.

Sales of the F-150 surged in the tenth generation to 750,000 to over 900,000 in 2001 as the General Motors and Dodge products lagged. Ford's sales dropped, however, for the final years of this generation as the redesigned Dodge trucks were released.

The F-150 was Motor Trend magazine's Truck of the Year for 1997.

1997 also marked introduction of Ford's modular Single Overhead cam (SOHC) engines into F-150.

In 2004, Ford redesigned the F-Series using the new P2 platform. Initially, only Ford's 4.6 L Triton and new 3-valve 5.4 L 3V Triton V8 engines and automatic transmissions were offered on the new luxurious trucks. Work-oriented versions with an available 4.2 L Triton V6 and manual transmission will debut for 2005.

The previous F-150 was continued in production until the summer of 2004 as the Heritage model.

The new F-150 won the North American Truck of the Year Award and was Motor Trend magazine's Truck of the Year for 2004. It also beat the three-time winning Chevrolet Silverado for Car and Driver magazine's Best Pickup Truck for 2004 and 2005. Additionally, over 912,000 F-150s were sold in 2004, giving it a single-year sales record.

The F-150 will have a new Harley-Davidson trim line in 2006 with an available all-wheel drive, while the Super Duty will have an available Amarillo package or the Chrome package for the Lariat.


Super Duty

For 2005 the "Super Duty" model was redesigned. These included a new grille, new interior, and factory installed trailer brake controller and upfitter switches. The engines were also upgraded, with the new 3 valve 5.4L V8 and 6.8L V10 putting out 300 and 362 horsepower, respectively. The Powerstroke Diesel was also modified, boosting torque from 560ft/lb to 570ft/lb, but horsepower stayed at 325.

The truck was going to be completely redesigned for the 2007 model year, but it was recently announced that quality issues will push it back to a 2008 model. The new 2008 model will introduce a new 6.4 L twin-turbo Power Stroke Diesel V8 to the replace the problematic 6.0 L Power Stroke Diesel V8. The engine is said to produce 350 hp (260 kW) and 650 ft·lbf (880 N·m), beating the DaimlerChrysler's Cummins ISB I6 on both power and torque, but just shy of beating the 360 Hp/ 660lb torque of the General Motors Duramax.
