Christabel Daniella ford, May 29th , 2017. First, what made Ford call these pickups F-150? The earliest use of the F-series name dates back to the 1948 Ford truck, with the half ton model named the F-1. Ford renamed that to F-100 in 1953, but the F-150 classification did not come about until 1976, why? This was a model that debuted to evade emissions requirements, as it was essentially a heavy half pickup rated at just over 6,000 pounds gross weight, which was the specification by the EPA at the time. This model required catalytic converters and subsequently unleaded gasoline. International Harvester also did this for 1975 in its final year of pickup production, making all half-ton 100 models 150s, to avoid installing catalytic converters. The final year of the F-100 was 1983, by which time leaded vs. unleaded was a moot point. The 100 or 150 indicated the nominal axle loading 100 = 1000 lbs, 1/2 ton, 150 = 1500 lbs 3/4 Ton. It had nothing to do with environmental requirements. It may be that the gross weight of the truck was increased in response to the 6000 lb marker, but the F-150s had been made for some time.
Naiara Reinders ford, May 29th , 2017. Ford's North American and Canadian mid-market contender has been given the automotive equivalent to a course of Botox injections, with new lights and fresh grille to help stave off signs of ageing. It now distinctly European, which is no bad thing. V5 power (in either 155PS or 205PS forms) is standard, is a four-speed automatic transmission and a suspension package that is biased towards comfort at the expense of precision. The four door sedan is the main seller, but there is also a station wagon variant that provides an optional third row of seats. Never intended as a car that will raise the blood pressure, the car signally achieves its modest ambitions.Ford Diesel Performance

Ella Naamah ford, May 30th , 2017. The F-150 debuted for 1975. A half-ton pickup, the F-150 filled the gap between the F-100 and F-250 as it was a bit more "heavy duty" than an F-100 though considerably less so than the F-250. In that year, more than one-third of F-Series sales were comprised of the new F-150. The Ford F-Series are classified as full-size trucks. Some trim options, depending on the year models, include the XL, XLT, and XLT Lariat. Harley-Davidson, King Ranch, Lightning, and Super Crew versions are also available. The Ford F-Series also has heavy duty models available as the F-250 and F-350. The longest-running component that was constantly used on every single pickup and remained unchanged during the F-series era was the front bumper from 1959 to 1979.

Imke Delara ford, May 31st , 2017. The blue oval has recently lost its coveted second-biggest car maker in the world status (behind General Motors) to Toyota, but that has not resulted in any sense of panic in the marque's Dearborn headquarters. Instead, there is an air of unbridled optimism that they will soon not just regain the second place, but will overhaul GM into the bargain. The range of ford cars available around the world is excellent (although it needs the help of its prestige brands such as Jaguar and Volvo t raise credibility) and there are signs that it is about to enter the Chinese market with a low-cost derivative of focus which will help the big pictures. New for 2004 are the latest Mustang and GT, both of which hark back to a golden age of performance cars in looks, but look forward in terms of driving dynamics. Ford used to claim that being number two in the world made them by try harder. Being number three to be making them work harder still.
