    Ford Offers Truck App On F-Series

    In the age of information overload seems like there is an app for everything, especially when it comes to our smartphones or our vehicles. Nowadays there is a race between manufacturers, who can place greater amount of information to our fingertips. Ford developed MyTouch and now gave the F-series truck owners the “Truck App.”

    This is an advanced version of the standard informational touch screen which allows to process towing and off-road features. The towing monitor allows to see whether the trailer is properly connected, it also records all data including mileage and other characteristics. The App can store data of 10 different trailers. On the off road the App allows to monitor steering angle, pitch and roll, ascent or descent angle, high or low range when 4WD is engaged, along with the E-locker differential and on the SVT Raptor, Hill Descent Control. The productivity screen comes standard on FX/FX4; Lariat; King Ranch and Platinum F-150s and can be installed optionally on the other Ford trucks.

    Back in the Saddle: Over a Half Million Ford Pickups Sold in 2010

    2009 was a cheerless year for the Ford F-Series pickup trucks, but his year Ford can boast of 20 percent sales increase in this category.

    More that 500,000 F-150 light-duty and F-250, F-350 and F-450 heavy-duty trucks have found their first owners in 2010, according to Ford. That’s about 9,800 pickups per week annualized. Only 413,625 F-Series pickups were sold last year, right at the peak of the global economic recession. The 2010 sales lift enabled Ford to return to the 2008 record of 515,513 F-Series trucks sold.

    Among the factors that have contributed to reversing the downward trend are strong incentives on the 2010 F-Series trucks followed by considerably updated 2011 models. The all-new powertrain lineup for the F-150 alone have become a serious reason for people to turn their eyes back to Ford.

    In addition to sales rebound, Ford F-Series pickups also celebrates its 34th year as the best selling truck in the U.S. and the 28th year as the best-selling vehicle.
