You probably don't need an introduction to the Ford F-150. In continuous production since 1948, it has been America’s top-selling vehicle for the better part of thirty years.
We often speak of a vehicle’s third or fourth generation, but the F-150 has reached its twelfth. At the core of its appeal is a nearly infinite option list: With an array of cab sizes, bed lengths, trim levels and special editions, the F-150 can be tailored to almost any taste. And if you want four-wheel-drive, you can have that, too.
The current version of the long-running F-150 debuted in 2009 with more muscular styling and an all-new interior with additional airbags. New options included Ford's Sync voice-command system and navigation. In 2011, Ford introduced a new roster of engines with improved power and efficiency, including the twin-turbo Ecoboost V6 and a 411-horsepower 6.2-liter V8.
The F-150 grows - it is 6 inches longer - and becomes more sophisticated. It is available in 5 trims: XL, STX, XLT, FX4 and Lariat. For 2006, a Harley-Davidson package is available, which includes the availability of all-wheel drive.
The F-150 gets a curvaceous makeover and three new engine choices in 1997. The supercharged Lightning is reintroduced in 1999, the Harley-Davidson edition debuts in 2000, and the SuperCrew body style arrives for the 2001 model year.
America's best-selling vehicle gets a smoother, more aerodynamic look in 1992; this year also sees the reintroduction of the Flareside bed design. The sporty Lightning model joins the lineup in '93 (only to be dropped in '96), and the luxurious Eddie Bauer edition debuts in 1995.
