The F-150 team tackled cabin noise with fanatical attention to detail. Many depend on their trucks for towing but want comfort and refinement. The design also moves the shock absorber closer to the wheel for approximately 25-percent greater mechanical advantage, which allows for more precise shock tuning. The new F-150 does that with the courage of a leader, launching a new era of Built Ford Tough. This item is custom made after the order is placed, and typically ships within 2 business days. Unless otherwise noted, the mildew resistant jute padding is heat bonded to the backside of the carpet and a heel pad is welded to the correct location.

Also available in the new F-150 is the 4. Unless otherwise noted, the mildew resistant jute padding is heat bonded to the backside of the carpet and a heel pad is welded to the correct location. All models, including the base version, feature an attractive two-tone instrument panel. Do not rely on the name of your existing carpet to match a color we offer. Plus, a class-exclusive new standard Tailgate Assist feature helps owners of all statures more easily open and close the gate. 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.

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. The instrument panel and center console contain finely crafted stitched surfaces in Medium Pebble or Ebony, augmented by woodgrain touches on the doors and instrument panel center stack. It is the workhorse truck that gets the job done, and can get down and dirty with hose-out floor functionality. The suspension reduces unsprung weight to help provide better ride and stability on choppy, broken surfaces. Ford has applied its expertise in driving dynamics to the best-selling vehicle in the world, and the result is a pickup truck that is responsive, confident while towing and robust and capable off-road. The F-150 SuperCrew configuration combines the versatility of a pickup box with generous interior space.
Precise steering, a laterally stiff rear suspension with outboard shock absorbers, larger brakes and the new 5. The refined interiors take the full-size pickup to a new level of comfort and refinement. New larger standard wheel and tire combinations reside in straightforward circular wheel arches that visually communicate power. Each access door features an integral window that contributes to the airy, spacious interior feel of the new F-150. The new fully boxed frame features hydroformed sections for improved torsional and bending strength. The three-valve head is dimensionally smaller than the two-valve design for the 5. 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.
The laterally stiff new rear suspension is very resistant to side loads, so trailer influence on the truck in crosswinds, on rutted roads or alongside 18-wheelers is minimal. That extra capacity could save a trip to the landscape supply or garden center. The new F-150 is rugged from the ground up-literally. The forward end of the rail features a dome light console and a large storage bin module. Both measures contribute to the precise steering response that makes the new F-150 driving experience spirited and confidence-inspiring.
The F-150 suspension is designed to contribute to braking assurance, resisting body dive and counteracting natural toe-out forces under braking to provide the driver predictable, consistent stopping performance. The new F-150 helps to protect its occupants with a structure designed to absorb crash energy and dissipate it before it can reach the reinforced passenger compartment. In a severe frontal impact, lower suspension control arms are designed to fracture, further absorbing crash energy. Off-road braking performance was the subject of careful tuning. In addition to the benefits of the new electronic throttle control system, the 4.
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.

Historically, Ford has led the industry with innovations such as a standard third door on SuperCab and the SuperCrew. It is upgraded to handle the torque of the 5.
Bold vertical bands gave the design team tremendous flexibility to adopt different colors, textures and materials to customize the look of the instrument panel. 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. Ford pioneered the pickup, gave it the first V-8 engine and Crew Cab and went on to create a brand that is synonymous with truck leadership. While final certification is not yet complete, Ford expects the new F-150 will offer competitive fuel economy. The bold front-end design conveys strength and symbolizes the powerful engine range. New double door seals contribute to the quiet ride.
