Maximum Loaded Trailer Weight lbs. I love my truck and would rather use this one then having to get a new one. This allows undisturbed maximum flow into the combustion chambers at wide-open throttle. 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. It is the workhorse truck that gets the job done, and can get down and dirty with hose-out floor functionality. I know it's doable, but would it be too much of a strain on the truck? The result is increased stiffness and stronger attachment points for the brackets that attach the body and suspension to the frame — and minimal shake and shudder on rough roads. It is upgraded to handle the torque of the 5.
For the new F-150, the most aggressive use yet of structural adhesives on a Ford truck helps to spread loads over the length of a seam, to maintain long-term body stiffness. While the most dramatic improvement in the F-150 driving experience comes on-road, Ford has steadily improved off-pavement performance. Regular Cab models feature industry-first rearward-swinging access doors that make it easier to reach a behind-seat cargo area that is large enough for golf clubs, toolboxes or five-gallon paint buckets. Combined with exceptionally stiff door sills and door openings, the hydroformed frame is able to help keep the main section of the frame from twisting during an offset crash. The new body structure is improved by more than 75 percent and works with the stiffer frame to ward off squeaks and rattles. At both the driver and outboard front passenger positions, safety belts are equipped with pyrotechnic pretensioners and load-limiting retractors.
The dominant force in pickups has just upped the ante. Today, they represent approximately 80 percent of sales due to their increased passenger space and functionality. Im asking because my truck has a max towing capacity of 6300 lbs and the 2006 models with 4. The steering is crisp and direct, the ride is plush yet controlled, the braking is strong and assured, and the cabin is quiet. Bold vertical bands gave the design team tremendous flexibility to adopt different colors, textures and materials to customize the look of the instrument panel. Smooth, quiet and refined, it also contributes to the quieter cab environment.
The new engine delivers 300 horsepower at 5,000 rpm and 365 foot-pounds of torque at 3,750 rpm. Rather than being welded or bolted to the back of the fully boxed bumper beam, the front frame rails extend through cutouts in the beam to its front face, where they are welded in place. While final certification is not yet complete, Ford expects the new F-150 will offer competitive fuel economy. The frame is approximately nine times stiffer in torsion and approximately 50-percent stiffer in bending as the already robust backbone of the current truck. Hope you have a transmission cooler because the transmission will be doing most of the work to pull this load because the older 4. The combination of Tough Truck capability and refinement sets a new standard for the industry. Designers created three different instrument cluster designs, which combine with other elements to give each series a distinctive look.
Pull off the trim pane from the front, and the fuse panel cover from the bottom. Like stated, it will do it fine, just expect it to work hard. The vented front discs have twin-piston calipers and are 330 millimeters 13 inches in diameter, an increase of 22 millimeters 0. Class 1-6 whatever you do, dont try it yourself. Beyond the fact that the engine is wor … king harder most of the 97-2004 f-150's use a small transmission cooler in conjunction with a system that runs transmission fluid through the radiator to cool it. The cabin is wider than ever before and its front seat is roomier, yet the door armrests extend far enough for smaller drivers to use comfortably.
The bold front-end design conveys strength and symbolizes the powerful engine range. Four axle ratios — from 3. The suspension reduces unsprung weight to help provide better ride and stability on choppy, broken surfaces. I have the 6 cyl 4. 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.
Historically, Ford has led the industry with innovations such as a standard third door on SuperCab and the SuperCrew. Reinforcements on the frame rails further improve the frame stiffness there. I drive a 2004 F150 with the 4. In a severe frontal impact, lower suspension control arms are designed to fracture, further absorbing crash energy. If the sensor detects no weight on the front passenger seat — or very little weight, such as a newspaper, a half-dozen bagels or work gloves — the passenger-side air bag is automatically turned off. The numbers tell why Ford is aggressively striving to maintain and extend its leadership as the best-selling full-size pickup. Make sure you have the overdrive switched off to prevent unnecessary shifting.
The F-150 team tackled cabin noise with fanatical attention to detail. In addition, the new F-150 has endured the equivalent of more than 5 million cumulative miles of engine testing. The three-valve head is dimensionally smaller than the two-valve design for the 5. If you only have to go short distances and your always on flat ground, it will get the job done, but it will not be strong in the process. If it's overheating, you might be pulling more than it's rated for.
