Ford F-150 Accessories & Parts

About Ford F-150

Ford's legendary F-Series premiered in the late '40s with the F1, the F2, and the F3. The F1 was a ½ ton light pickup, while the 2 and the 3 represented steps up in size (the F2 was ¾ ton and the F3 was a Heavy-Duty version of the F2). This was still in the somewhat "early" days of the American pickup truck and the F-Series represented a marked improvement over Ford's previous entrants, even offering a V8 with the first generation that threw out 100 horsepower. And over the next 30 years, the F-Series would evolve even more, seeing changes to not only the drivetrain parts, but of course to the size and shape of the model, as well as to its accessories. In 1975, the Ford F-150 debuted as a half-ton pickup, taking up the roster spot between Ford's F-100 and F-250. The truck was an instant success, accounting for over a third of all Ford F-Series truck sales in its first year on the road. It would also be the beginning to one of Ford's most prized accomplishments in the history of the company.

Once the 1980's hit, the F-150 was a primetime part of the show. There were certain changes to the Ford F-150 parts, most notably the hood was angled towards the rear and the SuperCab's windows were now split to show off the appearance of twin windows. In 1983, the engine options began to take on added size. A 7.5L V8 and 6.7L diesel V8 were offered. This was also the last year Ford would assemble the F-100, meaning that the F-150 was now the base truck. 1987 bought on even more changes to the Ford F-150 parts. The front-end displayed revised accessories, such as a rectangular grille and flush headlights that required only removing the bulb upon replacement, not the entire headlight. Anti-lock rear brakes were also added, as was a 4.9L inline 6-cylinder engine with fuel injection. Within a year, all engine options would be fuel-injected. In 1990, "Touch Drive" was implemented. "Touch Drive" allowed the drivers to go into 4-wheel drive mode by simply pushing a dashboard-mounted button. As the '90s progressed, the Ford F-150 became even more aerodynamically styled. The nose was smoothed out and the bumpers were slanted back.

Ford F-Series trucks had become the highest selling model in the industry with the F-150 leading the way. That made the need for safety features even more pressing. In 1994, a driver's side airbag and side door beams became standard Ford F-150 parts. 1995 saw the arrival of the Eddie Bauer F-150 Edition. Outfitted with alloy wheels, power windows and locks, and painted in two-tone colors, it was a "luxury" version of the F-150 and did better than expected in terms of overall sales. Currently, the Ford F-150 is still at the top of the heap. It is equipped with a 4.6L V8 (245 horsepower), a higher output 4.6L V8 (292 horsepower), or a 5.4L V8 (310 horsepower). There are seven trim levels available covering bed lengths, cab sizes, and driveline configurations, giving interested drivers of this truck more than enough possibilities to choose from. Even in a climate when sales of trucks dwindled due to the economic downturn, the F-150 still held its ground. Now bolder and more convenient than ever, the Ford F-150 still provides a fistful of results with the legacy to back it up.

One of the most popular vehicles of all time, the Ford F-150 truly knows no boundaries. The all-new 2015 Ford F-150 is a giant leap forward in truck technology. Through the extensive use of lightweight, military-grade aluminum alloy in the body structure, the 2015 model reduces its curb weight by up to 750 pounds. It is designed to deliver more towing capability than previous generations. The 2015 F-150 is available with a new 2.7L EcoBoost V6, and a 3.5L V6 that replaces the 3.7L V6. The F-150 remains one of the only trucks to have ever received the Motor Trend Truck of the Year (2004), North American Truck of the Year (2004), and Car & Driver Best Pickup Truck (2004, 2005), all within the span of two years. Powerful and versatile, this is one truck that takes second-place to no one.

A spoiler is intended to control the way the air streaming over the car is affecting the rear of the vehicle. Spoilers cause drag, and actually slow the car down or make it unstable, if not properly designed. A correctly designed spoiler can counteract the lifting forces that most cars experience when speeds get high, and keep the car on the road.
