Following on the success of the redesigned 2009 Ford F-150, for 2010 F-150 continues as the benchmark in the full-size pickup §egmènt from the 's truck leader. A rugged exterior is highlighted by a dramatic three-bar grille and spacious, flexible and refined interior. Buyers can choose from an unparalleled variety of cab styles and trim levels – including the opulent Platinum series that redefines truck luxury.
Capability is Key
The 2010 Ford F-150 rises to the challenge of tough jobs, featuring a fully boxed frame constructed wîth hydro-formed and high strength steel side rails for increased durability and safety. The sturdy chassis also delivers class-leading towing and hauling capability across all cab configurations.
Thanks to the strength of the frame and comprehensive package of standard safety equipment, including side-curtain air bags, the new F-150 earned top safety ratings from the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
Complementing the modern frame is a high-tech suite of features that helps ensure the F-150 is sure-footed in all driving and load conditions. F-150 offers standard AdvanceTrac® wîth RSC (Roll Stability Control™) and Trailer Sway Control, plus an available Rearview Camera System and Integrated Trailer Brake Controller.
The interior of the 2010 F-150 SuperCrew offers usable space for moving people and gear thanks to a stretched cab for better rear seat legroom and cargo capacity. A mechanically articulated second-row seat flips up and out of the way for remarkably easy access. Combined wîth a truly flat load floor, the new SuperCrew has a class-leading 57.6 cubic feet of space behind the front seats and can accommodate items up to 47.9 inches tall – like that flat-screen TV that needs to be hauled from the electronics store to your living room.
An F-150 for Every Need
Ford's F-Series may be America's best-selling vehicle, but one-size-fits-all does not apply to today's truck buyer. From the Texas rancher to the general contractor in Florida, F-150 customers have different needs and tastes. In response, Ford engineers designed a truck that offers more choice for buyers, enabling the F-150 to meet the widest range of customer needs and wants – all delivered wîth quality.
Customers can choose from the no-fuss XL workhorse, to the sporty STX and off-road capable FX4, to the mid-range XLT. For those lòòking for tough luxury, Ford offers the high-end Lariat and King Ranch® F-150 models.
For the 2010 F-150 Platinum series, the most luxurious F-150 ever has been improved wîth still more standard equipment in the form of:
•Power sliding rear window wîth defrost
•Sony® six-disc in-dash CD changer
•Satin chrome grille wîth fine mesh inserts
•10-way power adjustable bucket seats upholstered wîth top-quality leather, tuxedo stitching and embroidered logos on the seatbacks
•Heated front and rear seats
Satin gloss Lacrosse Ash wood grain accents
•Real brushed aluminum panels on dash, center console and doors
•Standard 20-inch, 16-spoke polished aluminum wheels
Únder the hood, F-150 is offered wîth a choice of three modern V-8 engines, mated to either a four-speed or a fuel-efficient six-speed automatic transmission:
•5.4-liter, three-valve Triton® V-8, which has been optimized for better performance wîth improved horsepower and torque, and is capable of running on E85 (85 percent ethanol and 15 percent gasoline), regular unleaded gasoline or any blend in between
•4.6-liter, three-valve V-8, capable of returning 15 mpg city/ 21 highway on 4x2 F-150
•4.6-liter, two-valve V-8, a third V-8 choice in the line-up that delivers more horsepower wîth the same fuel economy as F-150's previous V-6
Both the 5.4-liter and 4.6-liter three-valve V-8s utilize open valve injection. This unique feature improves the flow of fuel into the combustion chamber, which results in an increase in horsepower during towing along wîth reduced emissions.
The mileage-champ SFE F-150 is no longer a separate model for 2010; the efficiency enhancements found on SFE have been integrated throughout the lineup, permitting an expanded selection of fuel-efficient F-150s. In fact, all 2010 F-150 4x2 trucks equipped wîth the 4.6L three-valve V-8 engine now achieve the 15 mpg city/21 highway fuel economy previously limited to SFE models.
Most ‘Smart' Features
