2005 Ford F-150 Overview Ford F-150 has been the best-selling full-size pickup for 27 consecutive years, and it's the most important, most profitable vehicle Ford makes. Last year Ford threw away the old formula and created a new F-150 from the ground up. The 2004 F-150 earned numerous awards, including North American Truck of the Year. The F-150 more than delivers on all the truck attributes of toughness, strength, and cargo capacity, with a maximum tow rating of up to 9,900 pounds and a maximum payload of up to 3,000 pounds. Being able to get the work done is important, but the F-150 offers new levels of refinement, comfort, style, driving dynamics, and safety. For 2005, the F-150 gets an expanded lineup. At the top is a new King Ranch model lavishly outfitted in Castano leather. At the bottom is a new V6 model available with an automatic or manual transmission. An inexpensive Work Truck model has been added as well. In between is the industry's widest variety of body configurations: three cab styles, three bed lengths, two bed styles, and a choice of V8 engines. Six distinct trim levels are thoughtfully designed to address the needs of individual buyers with distinct needs and wants. The F-150 is bigger, heavier, and more costly to build than the previous version, but it offers excellent handling, a quiet and refined ride, and comfortable interiors that show attention to detail. The F-150 comes equipped with dual frontal airbags designed to deploy according to the severity of the crash and who or what is occupying the seat. Seat belts, your first line of defense in any crash, are equipped with pre-tensioners and energy-management retractors.
