Ford F-1 Pickup (Hudson)

1951-52 F-1

The first F-Series truck (known as the Ford Bonus-Built) was introduced in 1948, replacing the company's previous car-based pickup line. It was a modern-looking truck with a flat, one-piece windshield and integrated headlights. Options were the "See-Clear" windshield washer (operated by foot plunger), passenger side windshield wiper & sun visor, and passenger side taillight. The F-1 truck was also available with additional chrome and two horns as an option. All F-series were available in "Marmon-Herrington All Wheel Drive" until 1959. A Mercury-badged version of this F-Series was sold only in Canada.

Design of the F-Series truck changed little from 1948 to 1952. From 1948 to 1950, the grill was a series of horizontal bars and the headlights were set into the fenders. For 1951 and 1952, the headlights were connected by a wide aerodynamic cross piece with three similarly aerodynamic supports. The rear window was wider in the later trucks and the dashboard was redesigned.

F-series trucks were built at sixteen different Ford plants. Serial numbers indicate the truck model, engine, year, assembly plant, and unit number. The most common model was the F-1 with a 6 ½-foot bed followed by the F-2 and F-3 Express models with an 8-foot (2.4 m) bed.

The models are:

  • F-1: 1/2 ton (4,700 GVWR max)
  • F-2: 3/4 ton (5,700 GVWR max)
  • F-3: Heavy Duty 3/4 ton (6,800 GVWR max)
  • F-3: Parcel Delivery (7,000 GVWR max) & optional rear spring pkg (7,800 GVWR max)
  • F-4: 1 ton (7,500 GVWR max) & optional 1¼ ton pkg (10,000 GVWR max)
  • F-5: 1½ ton: Conventional, school bus, and cab over engine (C.O.E.) (10,000–14,500 GVWR)
  • F-6: 2 ton: Conventional, school bus, and C.O.E. (14,000–16,000 GVWR)
  • F-7: Conventional (17,000–19,000 GVWR)
  • F-8: Conventional (20,000–22,000 GVWR)

The F-Series was redesigned for 1953 with a more integrated look. The pickups also acquired their now familiar names: The F-1 now became the F-100, the F-2 now became the F-250, and the F-3 now became the 1 ton F-350. Starting on the 1956 models, Ford offers the very rare "Low GVWR" versions of each model. Optional interior amenities were new, including a dome light, lighter, arm rests, sun visors and a radio. On March 13, 1953, "Ford-O-Matic" automatic transmissions became an option.

The 1953 F-100 was the last year for the flathead in the US. Canadian models, however, (Mercury M-Series), retained the flathead. 1954 saw the introduction of the new 239 CID overhead valve Y-block 8 cylinder, dubbed "Power King." The six cylinder engine's displacement was also increased from 215 to 223 CID and power steering was introduced as an option.. In 1955 the 239 Y-block was replaced with the 272 and 292.

The 1956 F-100 is a one-year only body style. The 1956 F-100 is easily identified as it has vertical windshield pillars and a wrap around windshield as opposed to the sloped pillars and angled windshield of the 1953-55. The 1956 model also offered a larger wrap-around back window as an option.

Second generation trucks were built in Brazil from 1957 to 1962 as the F-100, F-350 and F-600.

Models:

  • F-100: 1/2 ton (5,000 GVWR max)
  • F-110: 1/2 ton (4,000 GVWR max)

The truck was restyled again in 1957 with a hood that now sat flush with the fenders and a new chrome grille. In the back, the traditional separate-fender body was now called flareside, while a new smooth-sided look was known as styleside. Four wheel drive drive-train, which was previously outsourced to Marmon-Herrington, was produced in-house by Ford Motor Company beginning in 1959. Ford still offers a "Low GVWR" version of each model. In May 1957 Ford discontinued building trucks at the Highland Park Ford Plant in Highland Park, Michigan. All heavy trucks were transferred to Kentucky Truck Assembly in Louisville, Kentucky. All light and medium trucks were transferred to 10 other plants in the USA.

Third generation trucks were built in Brazil as the F-100, F-350 & F-600 from 1962 to 1971.

Ford originally planned to reintroduce the F-100, known internally as P525, as global replacement for Ford Ranger in 2010 or 2011,[4] but the plan was cancelled, instead offering EcoBoost engines for the F-150.[5]

Safety

The F-150 comes standard with AdvanceTrac Electronic Stability Control, front and rear row side curtain airbags, and front row torso side airbags. In IIHS crash tests the F150 received the Good overall score in both front and side impact tests and was given the Top Safety Pick award.[6]

SVT Raptor

Main article: Ford F-150 SVT Raptor

The F-150 SVT Raptor launched in 2010 as a dedicated off-roader. It was powered by a 5.4L (330 CID) engine, with a 6.2L option. The 6.2L (379 CID) engine has 411 horsepower (306 kW) and 434 ft·lbf (588 N·m) of torque.[3] The suggested retail price was $3000 over the 5.4L model. A six-speed automatic is standard.[8] It has Fox Racing Shox internal bypass shocks with external reservoirs which allows for 11" of suspension travel in front, and 13" in the rear. It will come standard with 35" BFG All Terrain tires, and a 4.10 ratio locking limited slip rear axle. Also, it will be available in solid black, white, blue, and orange with a "digital mud" decal scheme as an option.[9]

In August 2010, Ford announced the 2011 SVT Raptor would be powered exclusively with the 6.2L V8 as the only engine choice. Other notable changes to the 2011 SVT Raptor include availability in a 4 door Super Crew cab and a new color option Ingot Silver Metallic making the Raptor available in a total of five colors.[10]

The race version, F-150 SVT Raptor R, was also built for the Baja 1000 races. It uses a 6.2 L engine rated at 500 hp.[11]

The first production Raptor, orange with the digital mud graphic, sold at an auction for $130,000. Ford donated all proceeds above the MSRP to charity.

2010 Harley-Davidson F-150

On February 10, 2009 at the Chicago Auto Show, the latest edition of the F-150 was introduced. Adopting many luxury features of the Platinum Edition, this Harley went one step further by providing leather seating surfaces derived from authentic Harley biker-jacket materials, as well as the requisite exhaust tones and power to reach a top speed of 115 miles per hour (185 km/h).[12]

F-150 Platinum

Ford ceased sales of the Lincoln Mark LT in the United States and Canada after the 2008 model year.[13] In its place beginning in the 2009 model year, Ford created an upper-end trim of the 2009 F-150 called F-150 Platinum. Sales continued in Mexico, because the Ford F-150 was sold as the Ford Lobo until the 2010 model was released there.

Concepts

At the 2008 SEMA show, four 2009 Ford F-150s were unveiled: the F-150 Heavy Duty DEWALT Contractor, the FX-4 by X-Treme Toyz, the F-150 by Street Scene Equipment, and the Hi-Pa Drive F-150. The Heavy Duty DEWALT Contractor was built in a DeWalt theme. The FX-4, also called Fahrenheit F-150, was built for outdoor lifestyle enthusiasts. The Street Scene Equipment version is a lowered truck built with performance and style. The Hi-Pa Drive F-150 was powered by 4 electric in-wheel motors rated over 480 hp (360 kW) and over 375 ft·lbf (508 N·m) torque combined.[14]

European version

Following the merger of the Ford Focus, the European subsidary will not bring the next generation Ford Ranger into their market. Instead, they will develop a European version of the F-Series, which will be as same as the North American version, but with some major changes to meet the latest emissions requirements[citation needed].

Electric/Hybrid Vehicles

Ford will supply Smith Electric Vehicles with a range of its Ford F-Series commercial vehicles as the chassis for Smith's US-specific vehicles. The first of these vehicles is the Faraday mark II, built using the Ford F-650 chassis cab, with a gross vehicle weight (GVW) of up to 29,000 lb (13,000 kg) maximum payload. It manufactures the first of this product in the second half of 2008.[15]

Hybrid Electric Vehicle Technologies (HEVT), Inc.[16] unveiled a plug-in hybrid prototype at 2008 Plug-In Conference and Exposition.[17]

Ford and PML Flightlink worked together to produce the Hi-Pa Drive Ford F150 pickup prototype vehicle[18] which was unveiled at the SEMA show 2008.

Motorsports

In 2008, Ford announced its intention to enter Baja 1000 race class 8 race. The race team consisted driver of record Steve Oligos and co-drivers Randy Merritt, Greg Foutz and Bud Brutsman, competing in class eight for moderately modified full-size pickup trucks.[19] The vehicle was built in collaboration between the Ford Special Vehicle Team (SVT), Ford Racing, and Foutz Motorsports Inc. Ford F-150 SVT Raptor R completed the 2008 41st Tecate SCORE Baja 1000 race in 25:28:10,[20] or 3rd rank within the class.[21]

In Best In The Desert race series, F150 SVT Raptor R completed the "Terrible's 250" race in overall 2nd place in Class 8000.[22]

Also in January 2010 a single Raptor SVT (#439) compete in the Argentina-Chile Dakar Rally Driven by the Chilean and local Driver Javier Campillay, Sadly the car was forced to retirement due a cath-up crash with another car who be stopped in the middle of a dusty road in the middle of the stage 7; in January 2011 two Raptors see the Start in Buenos Aires, Campillay returns with a more reliable Raptor (#375), and US Female Driver Sue Mead with a T2 Raptor(#374), Mead see the finish line in Buenos Aires, winning the Super Production class, the team has pulled off the first North American Class win in Dakar history, brought the Raptor over the finish line after more than 9500 kilometers in some of South America’s harshest environments, Campillay was forced to retirement in the 12st Stage after lost time due a mechanical failure in 11st Stage, and be disqualified because did not achieve the race camp on time.

Notes

Ford V8 Freighter F-100

This 1955 Australian F-100 Freighter had special high side panels, perhaps unique to Australia. Note RHD.

  • Ford also manufactures F-Series medium and heavy-duty trucks alongside the F-150, F-250, and F-350s.(F-450, F-550, F-650, F-750). School bus chassis versions are sold as B-Series trucks. The 1961–1965 Ford Falcon Econoline flat nose pickup trucks and 1961–present vans are E-Series. Parcel delivery vans are P-Series. Big tractor trailer trucks are L-Series. There was also a class 8 cab over called the W-Series in the 60s-70s, replaced by the CL-Series in 1977.
  • In Argentina and Brazil, the gasoline engines are often converted to also run with alternative fuels, E-96h (Brazilian-spec ethanol) and CNG (Compressed Natural Gas). Biodiesel also is used in diesel engines.
  • Ford also built Right-hand drive versions of the F-Series in Brazil for export to countries that drive on the left side of the road, like the United Kingdom and Australia.
  • Prior to the F-650 and F-750 medium-duty trucks, Ford offered F-700, F-800 and F-900 medium-duty trucks that retained the door and aft cab (A-pillar back) style and structure from the previous generation F-Series, along with the dash and instrument cluster (from early 1980s models). Current models are based on the International 4000 Series chassis with a Ford Super Duty cab.
  • An F-8000 was also produced based on the Ford Cargo cab-over range, which was similar to the 2006 and newer Ford LCF ("Low Cab Forward").
  • In Mexico the 1997–2004 style F-150 is still built and sold with the F-150 having a 4.2L V6 and the F-250 (with the same styling, interior, etc.) having a 4.6L V8. The US-market F-150 is sold as the Ford Lobo.
  • Despite its unpopularity in the US, the Lincoln Mark LT (version of the US-market F-150) continues to be sold in Mexico.
