Just wondering what your max towing capacity is? We just bought a 32 foot RV Travel Trailer and looking for info about which truck we need to pull that. It weighs about 5500 dry weight. I think we need about 6000 lbs tow capacity plus add 1000 lbs for safety cushion. I tested the 2011 Ford F150 with the Eco-boost and it was nice, drives sweet but did not tow anything. ... Read More
Well I purchased a 2013 F150 Supercrew 4x4 V8 with the 302A pkg, tailgate step ladder and bucket seats. The MSRP was $42435 and with the Xplan it came out at $38900 below invoice then minus another $5500 only in rebates , because I did not finance with Ford Credit, but at 2.95% interest. Also got a 7 year 75K miles bumper to bumper warranty with the Ford ESP. I got ... Read More
I am going to purchase a 2013 F150 Supercrew 4 x 4 with a 5.0 V8. It must include a package 302A(with rear camera). I will buy in 3 weeks or should I wait for Fords Memorial day sale. I am trading a 2009 Ranger which the dealer will give me $9,000 (paid for) 3 weeks from now. As of today the total rebates are $5750 (better deal than 0%). Any ... Read More
Best part of the story...... I have a 5.3 Yukon, 6 spd trans. 2009. Great all around ride and mpg BUT GM saw fit to offer two different trail tow options. (1) call trailer tow, which provides the right engine, trans, and axle. and (2) one that includes the an increased radiator core and transmission cooler. Without both, you can only pull 5900# ,with both it's rated at 7900#. While it ... Read More
Well you've had enough time to really understand performance and mileage. I recently bought a 2012 Platinum with 373 gears based on comments like yours. While I am a well seasoned power train engineer (Ford), I have not experienced great fuel economy yet. I also have a 2009 Yukon 5.3 (373 axle) which does deliver 16.5 cty/ 20.0 hwy but lacked the muscle to pull for camping without overheating the transmission ... Read More
The current 2009 f-150 incentives expire on 10/05. Does Ford normally run better incentives on the current model year as the end of the year gets closer?
I just picked it up at Syosset Ford in NY , Silver with black leather interior, 20 inch pirelli scorpions, 6 cd, sync, chrome running boards. I love it . Rides like a car. ( I'am use to F250'S) . 41,490 msrp. less 750.00 Sync & Captains chair credit, Sell price was 37,145. less the 2500 from Ford. + TTR . They gave me 15,000. for my 2005 F250 ,it was ... Read More
Will a Ford F150 Bed Mat for a 2007 styleside 5.5' bed fit the new 2009 Styleside 5.5"styleside if they are both supercrew?
Have been waiting for a Catalytic Converter for our 2005 F-150 truck since Feb. 24th ,2009. Took it to the dealer (under warranty). Have called Ford to complain. Started in March/It is now the end of June. Keep telling me next month/no they say July 22nd. Meantime my fail safe mode has come on. This is the only vehicle i have. Summertime/we camp alot. Can't do anything til i get this ... Read More
The fun varies, from camping to dirt-bike riding to water-skiing. But the vehicle that invariably gets tasked with hauling the corresponding equipment is a full-size pickup truck. You know, like the 2009 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, 2009 Dodge Ram 1500, 2009 Ford F-150 or 2009 Toyota Tundra. 2009 Full-Size Pickup Truck Comparison Test
Bought a 2009 in Feb 2009. Gave 17,000 for it. Just An XT Long Bed, Reg.Cab 4X2 Silver/Platinum Metallic Color 17" Plain Wheels, V8, Cloth Seats. in Oklahoma. Didn't want to haggle too much, David Stanley Ford in Oklahoma. Did hav CD Player that plays MP3s. Happy so far.
Hi rdb0222. Unfortunately, Ford is not currently providing lease support on the F-150. As a result, leasing this truck right now is going to be very expensive. Unfortunately, it appears as though the days of reasonable leases on pickups are over. Car_man Host Prices Paid: Buying & Leasing Experiences Forum
Hi, I am looking for ford's current lease residual value and lease rate for a 2009 f -150 lariat supercrew 4x4 for 24 mo. and 10,500 mi/per yr. thanks for the help
Hi mattnday. You're in luck. Ford extended the Employee Pricing offer that it was running in December through January 12th. This means that you will be able to get an excellent selling price on the '08 F-150 that you are interested in without having to haggle. Wow, you drive 30,000 miles per year . That's a lot of driving. I believe that the highest mileage allowance that Ford Credit offers is ... Read More

Anyone know what Ford plans on doing on incentives post Jan 5, 2009? I haven't heard or seen anything, anyone in the know please expound! Thanks in advance.
sticker was $32450. Paid $20098. This was a Texas/Oklahoma edition with the chrome package. Interior is pretty basic, but the outside looks fantastic with the running boards and chrome bumpers. This was at Billingsley Ford of Ardmore in Oklahoma. Dealership didn't even put up much of a fight. They had the price of $22500 after rebates. Told them I wanted to pay no more than $20k and they came back with ... Read More
we too have a new F150 STX bought in August 08. Since then it has been in the shop for almost a month. It has had 14 new tires of different brands, new rotors, new drive shaft, and no difference. The Ford engineer said it was not fixable to our service manager. Then he told the Division person it was in an "acceptable" range. How is it acceptable when at high ... Read More
2009 Ford F-150 Full Test and Video
2009 Ford F-150 First Drive
A just can't believe how little info is out there concerning the new F-150. Neither Edmund's nor Ford's website has much. I keep hoping that Ford will offer the 7700 payload package or something similar in more models for 09. The advertising touts increased payload but I have not seen any specifics on any available packages. Has anyone seen anything? Thanks.
Is anyone running into many "new" 2007 models of these trucks, and have you found ways to get great deals on them? Since Ford has pushed back 2009 deliveries until late fall/early winter to clear the huge inventory of 2008s, I would think they would accept almost any offer for 2007s
2009 Ford F-150 will offer Sync. Comparing Sync with an ear piece is like comparing GW Bush to Abe Lincoln....
Nissan Titan down 48%. That makes Nissan look like they discontinued the Titan. Looks like the new Ram isn't doing so good either. It's a no brainer for Ford to delay the intro of the 2009 F150.
Chis: I bought a 2007 Harley Davidson in December with the saleen package, discounted it about 7K off MSRP and they RARELY move off those vehicles. I'd look at invoice for your truck as the starting point, then subtract the rebates or choose the financing option. Based on what I remember the invoice of that truck is likely lower than 30K, given a 33K MSRP. I'd suggest invoice is likely about ... Read More
Horsepower is not the most important element in the volume half ton truck segment. Practicality, car like smoothness, capability, style, reliability are all more important than power or fuel economy. The biggest customer segment consists of mature baby boomers purchasing trucks for personal/family use or business/fleet use. That's why Ford and GM have the most tasteful, conservative styling in this product segment, and the biggest market shares; and Dodge/Toyota/Nissan have edgier ... Read More
First Look: 2009 Ford F-150
I don't know much about pickup trucks particularly but here's how I imagine the conversation went at the Dodge head office: [management] So... what are we going to do with the Ram? We keep getting ranked last in magazine articles and it ain't gettin' any younger! [accounting] Well if we spend as much on a redesign as Ford and GM, but only sell half the units, we'll just continue to fall ... Read More
True, crew cabs 1/2 tons are now to haul family. In LALA land, freeways are irregular concrete where several mile sections can be teeth-jarring, chest-pounding rides, followed by smooth asphalt. I've been in crew versions of each of the Big3 products (but more than 5 years back), but no improvement in ride. Perhaps coils will help. Mark, perhaps I was a little harsh on the F-150, but Serious improvements to the ... Read More

Mr. Rube...True enough about Big3 being tougher than Tundra. I own a 1st gen. Tundra that is a total city truck; never worked an honest day in its life. Reliable as it gets, as was my 394K '85 SR5. But, I looked at the video of the 2007 Tundra crashing and smashing around on a washboard. Disgraceful. The Ford was well-controlled, as was the GM truck. Boxed frame or not, you ... Read More
The new 2008 Super Dutys are more expensive and have greater and in some cases MUCH GREATER GCWRs than the old model. The F-150 has capacities creeping up also. I think that the cost increase on the 08 Super Duty vs. the 07 and the extra capacity of the 2009 F-150 is going to allow customers who previously needed the Super Duty to get the job done to stick with the ...

In reality, The 2009 Model year is just a face lift for F-150. Truck Design Cycle is about 7-9 years, unless you have a lot of development money to change that. Ford is not in the financial situation to make a change so soon.
Ford comes out with a new truck & will not release horsepower numbers who are they kidding. Is this because Ford is still in last place in the horsepower wars.

Sorry, just saw your message. If it were me, and I could wait a little while, I'd wait until the middle of 2008, when Ford comes out with their 2009 models. I am reading that Ford will be coming out with a DIESEL F150 in their 2009 lineup. That, for me, would be the perfect vehicle to do what you are wanting to do. You don't need all the xtra weight ...

The Silverado/Sierra HD and Ford Super Duty were also in this year's TOY competition, as they did not begin production until after last year's contest was completed. Motor Trend always claims that trucks are scored against their direct competition, so the Tundra was rated against all the current half-tons, as opposed to the heavy pickups which were rated against each other and the Dodge Ram HD. The F-150 and Ram 1500 ... Read More
This may be ancient history but tonight I was trying to find out about the new 2009 F-150 diesel and found out that Navistar is suing Ford for millions of dollars over the new Lion V8 Ford plans to build. Maybe that is why the 6.4 is having problems.....
Just been browsing the net when I came across some good news and some bad news. The good news is that it looks like Ford intends to put a 4.4 V8 diesel in the 2009 F-150. It will apparently be the Lion diesel built mostly in the UK. However, Navistar is suing Ford becasue they say that the new engine is one that they were designing for ford and are suing ... Read More

Before you start the flames, let me once again say that I've owned 2 Toyotas, 1 of which was really good (1985) and one of which was mediocre at best (1992). But at least they both had relatively beefy fully boxed frames considering they were "mini-trucks". The riveted c-channel Tundra frame is a huge step backward. Why would Toyota do that? To save on cost maybe? I dunno, but it's a ... Read More
I think Ford trucks are pretty decent, but they're definitely dated compared to the competition (Dodge is dated too). Payload is high because it is essentially a "HD" version, but no way can it pull 11K safely. I test drove the GMC, Toyota, Dodge, Ford, and Nissan, and there was no question that the most lethargic of all of the trucks was the F150. Every other vehicle felt considerably stronger. So, ...
