. Base Regular Cab models are powered by a tepid but fuel-efficient for a big truck V6. The F-150's silhouette is easy to spot, thanks to its tall bed wall about two inches taller than the previous generation F-150. 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. The F-150 carries on for 2007 with only minor exterior upgrades. Those who like to have as much fresh air in the cabin as possible will appreciate the SuperCab's optional rear roll-down windows, a first in this segment.
Driving It Power is the name of the game when it comes to full-size trucks, and here Ford has made some significant advances. The F-150 offers numerous trim levels, engine choices and bed and cab lengths. Not only is the new F-150 better-looking inside, it's also more quiet, safe and spacious. Notable options include a 300-horsepower 5. The dash and interior design on the base models look good enough, but the addition of leather, wood, chrome and center console-mounted shifter found on the high-end models combine to raise the bar on the plush pickup concept. Rising fuel prices and a move toward smaller vehicles have forced the company to revise its F-150 lineup by offering more features and options with an aggressive new pricing strategy.
The combination of these features makes these the best-handling, best-riding F-150s to ever leave a Ford factory. If you've driven the older models 2004 or prior , you'll be duly impressed by the dead-on steering feel and straight-line tracking of today's F-150s. Gone are the old power steering system and torsion bar front suspension; replacing them are a modern rack-and-pinion steering and front coil-over-shock suspension. Though it looks different, some may find the tall bed walls make it difficult to reach a toolbox from the side of the truck. A look at the Fair Purchase Price shows the typical transaction price being paid for the F-150 in your area, so be sure to give it a look before you set out to buy. The recently redesigned shapely Ford body, egg-crate grille and Blue Oval badging remain intact, surrounded by some new chrome trim and a crop of fresh new colors. We prefer the 300-horsepower 5.
We don't recommend this engine for towing or hauling heavy loads. Determined to keep the F-150 America's best selling pickup, Ford continues to offer a dizzying array of configurations a total of 60 in all as well as a new 5. A beefed-up version of the 4R75E automatic transmission has been assigned to handle the engine's added muscle. The F-150's interior is as close to car-like as you'll find in any pickup. If Ford does one thing better than building tough trucks, it's selling them. 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 Regular Cab features a set of small, rear-hinged doors that allow easy access to the narrow space behind the front seat. . . . .
