2023 Ford F-150 Lightning Launch

The official launch of the 2023 Ford F-150 Lightning happened last night and there were some shocking numbers thrown about – starting with the starting price: $39,974, before any credits!!! Of course that’s not the one you or I will actually want – it’s a base, commercial-oriented trim level. Optioned out it’ll top off at around $90k – similar to a King Ranch if you tick all the boxes in a traditional F-150.

Ford Confirms Plans To Kill All Sedans In North America

APRIL 25, 2018  ~ The announcement was made with little fanfare as it was tucked away in the company’s first-quarter financial results. Buried underneath various statistics is a rather blunt statement that the company will “not invest in next generations of traditional Ford sedans for North America.” Models (already long-in-the-tooth) such as the Fusion, Fiesta and Taurus will be phased out over the next few years. The company will keep the Mustang and confirmed plans to launch the all-new Focus Active in North America next year.

2010 Ford F-150 4×4 SuperCrew Lariat – Road Test

It’s been a year or two since I’ve taken a full-size pickup truck for a road test. With the Ford F-150 being all-new in 2009 and having major improvements over 2008, I thought it would be a good time to test one. Some of the improvements over the 2008 model are things like improved torsion rigidity in the ’09 trucks by 10% and Ford have used laser-edge welds that are 5 times stronger than other trucks’ traditional spot welds.
