Both 4×2 and 4×4 models use coil-on-shock, long-spindle, double-wishbone front suspension. The fully boxed frame with hydroformed front rails is the strongest in its class and reduces shake and shudder on rough roads. The Hotchkiss-design rear suspension has been optimized with rear shock absorbers placed outboard of the frame rails — a segment exclusive — for a smoother ride and improved control of body lean. Ford also has upgraded the F-150 line for 2007 with a long list of new options, features and equipment, including a tire pressure monitoring system, enhanced seats, new factory-installed accessories and new colors. Powertrain and Chassis F-150 offers three engine choices: a 4. Segment-first torque-based electronic throttle control uses driver input from the accelerator pedal to actively modulate the torque at the drive wheels. A flex-fuel version that can use up to 85 percent ethanol is also available.
With a maximum tow rating of 10,500 pounds when properly equipped and maximum payload capacity of 3,050 pounds, the F-150 is the most capable full-size pickup under 8,500 pounds. Inside, F-150 boasts passenger comfort and head-turning style. The suspension reduces unsprung weight to help provide better ride and stability on choppy, broken surfaces. With it, occupants may easily snap in additional modules, such as first-aid kits, toolboxes, flashlights and two-way radio holders. All cabs feature four doors for easy access. The floor shifter, another F-150 first, is a sophisticated design, detailed in warm steel and chrome. Ford F-150 sets the industry standard for toughness, strength, safety, interior spaciousness, refinement, driving dynamics, stability, functionality, cargo capacity, comfort and style.
Three different instrument cluster designs give each series a distinctive look. Safety and Security The strong hydroformed front frame rails are built to help manage crash forces. All models feature an upscale two-tone instrument panel. Four-wheel, vented-disc, anti-lock brakes are standard. The technology produces a seamless and consistent engine response, improved fuel economy and enhanced integration of vehicle systems, such as the transmission, variable camshaft timing, vehicle speed control and idle speed control. In an impact, these areas of the frame are designed to collapse in an accordion fashion, dissipating energy before it reaches the passenger compartment.
It delivers 300 horsepower at 5,000 rpm and 365 pound-feet of torque at 3,750 rpm. The F-150 offers the industry-first modular overhead rail system that allows owners to customize interior storage options to suit their individual needs. F-150 4×2 V-8 models can be ordered with Traction Assist to improve acceleration and stability on slippery surfaces. . It is built in Norfolk, Va.
The bold front end conveys strength with quad-circle-styled headlamps, designed in clusters, and incorporates a wrap-around fascia treatment that communicates refined sophistication and precision. A chrome bug shield and chrome slip-on exhaust tip are two new factory-ordered accessories available on all models, in addition to a marine carpet bed rug. Engineering advances in the F-150 lead to exceptional handling, ride and quietness. A rack- and-pinion steering system — the largest and strongest ever used on a Ford vehicle — was engineered to provide excellent steering response. . .
