The Ford 300 cubic inch straight-six is a staple of American truck culture, having literally helped build this nation as we know it. Found in Ford F-Series trucks in the 1960s all the way until 1996, the big 560-pound iron-block powerhouse served valiantly for farmers, construction workers, and even lumberjacks. It…
The desperation for a new Ford Bronco is running dangerously unchecked. Enthusiasts are huddled around rumor scraps and wacky Photoshop renders while body shops are committing unspeakable acts of perversion to bring the Bronco back. Or at least, something resembling the idea of it.
The Ford F-150 is getting a facelift for 2018 with a new front bumper, headlight and grille design. But the goods behind it are a lot more interesting: the base 3.5-liter V6 is being replaced with a 3.3, the 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 and 5.0-liter V8 are upgraded—and there’s a brand new 3.0-liter Power Stroke diesel in…
You can still buy a Ford F-150 with a 5.0-liter V8, but the top-shelf engine option is the 3.5-liter V6 EcoBoost. Yet I still hear stuff like– “will that fancy-pants tech really last?” Take this tour of a turbo F-150 with 205,268 miles on it and see for yourself.
The all-new 2017 Ford Raptor is a 5,500 pound turbocharged brick sitting almost a foot off the ground on 35-inch off-road tires and long-travel shocks. I was expecting the off-road performance to set a new standard, but on winding roads? I thought we had laws of physics against stuff like that.
Backing up a trailer is one of the most ceaselessly counter-intuitive procedures in the world of trucks (or at least everyone else tells me it is), but not if you have an F-150 equipped with Pro Trailer Backup Assist. At least, that’s what Ford told me when they lent me this $67,270 optioned-out pickup. I borrowed a…
This 2016 Ford F-150 XLT got dropped off at a dealership like every other, except it inexplicably had one sweet upgrade– the high-performance driver’s seat from a Raptor. Gift from the truck gods or somebody’s wacky off-the-menu order?
The F-150 pictured above costs $67,270. It has a number of options including, but not limited to, multi-contoured massaging seats, which help explain the ridiculous price tag. There are a few expensive features, though, that are more than just frivolous—they’re actually incredibly useful.
Remember the new Ford Ranger pickup truck? Of course you do. You probably clicked on this article to drop “Why don’t they sell it in America?” into the comments. One of the reasons I’ve heard is “it’s too close in size to the F-150” but you never really see both trucks in the same place. Now you can.
We reported a few months ago that Ford’s 2017 F-150 was going to debut with a new 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6, which was expected to make 365 horsepower and 450 lb-ft of torque. Well, Ford just called me out of the blue to inform me that their power numbers are actually higher than initial estimates. Great news!
For about a year now, General Motors has been boasting the advantages of its steel-bodied Chevrolet Silverado over the aluminum-bodied Ford F-150 in TV ads. Now a new set of “aluminum versus steel” ads is here, purporting to show the F-150's bed cracking under pressure. GM swears the ads aren’t an attack on aluminum…
Ford’s ahead of the game with their turbocharged engine offerings and their aluminum bodies. But as we already know, the Blue Oval is putting a cherry on top by adding four more gears to their transmission and they’re increasing their 3.5-liter EcoBoost’s torque output to insane levels. Today we learned a bit more…
While the Hummer carries most of the historical weight of the blowhard puffed chest Bush Years, it’s the Pre-Recession Ford F-150 that most encapsulates the bland bigness of the era, as Regular Car Reviews explains.
When people buy a truck, it’s typically based on all sorts of capability-based specifications (or longstanding familial preference). How much load can it carry? How much can it tow? Can it take a .50 caliber bullet to the nose and keep trucking? What about an anti-tank shell?
A report out of Dearborn, Michigan says an aluminum Ford F-150 has been spotted running around with manufacturer camouflage and a diesel engine that sources say is the same 3.0 turbodiesel powering the new Range Rover.
We know the 2017 Ford Raptor will have a 3.5 twin turbo V6, ten-speed automatic transmission, and of course the new F-150’s aluminum body. No real claims have been made on the truck’s power or weight, but Forza 6 has numbers. Think they mean anything?
