2013 Ford F-150 Revealed


Quote:
The Ford F-150 has been updated for 2013, getting a fresh new nose and some new technology and interior appointments.


The look of the truck has changed only in the front end, getting a new grille that mimics the grille found on Fordís lineup of heavy duty trucks. New high-intensity discharge (HID) headlamps complete the look with the classic ĎLí shape found on all new F-series pickups. 18- and 20-inch wheels are now available as well along with three new color options; blue jeans metallic, kodiak brown metallic and ruby red clearcoat metallic.

MyFordTouch infotainment system is now available in the cab of the F-150 along with SYNC, displayed on a new 8-inch LCD color touch screen. Other tech goodies powered by SYNC include turn-by-turn directions, business search, send to SYNC from Google maps and mapQuest, news, sports, weather and horoscopes.

Under the hood, the F-150 gets four engine options. The 3.5-liter EcoBoost, arguably the most popular Ford engine right now, which makes 365 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque, a 3.7-liter V6 that makes 302 hp and 278 lb-ft of torque, a 5.0-liter V8 capable of producing 360 hp, and finally the most powerful in the lineup 6.2-liter V8 that produces 411 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque.

A wide array of trim levels are available for the F-150, making it easy to get luxury appointed pickup are a bare bones model.

No pricing was announced. Expect to see the new F-150 in dealers by late summer.

Watch the video below to see the F-150 marketing manager explain the update.

Just what we need: horoscopes on an eight-inch dash screen for entertaining yourself while driving down the freeway or a two-lane highway. I guess texting is not enough of a diversion for the techno-video game, glued-to-your-cell-phone generation from paying attention to driving and traffic.

My guess is that next up from the Ford techno-children designers is in-dash hair dryers and microwave ovens so we can finish doing our hair and warm up breakfast while non-chalantly cruising down the road, and while texting of course.

while you (i'm assuming) old timers are busy wagging your finger at the younger guys for every little miss- step, lets not forget that this new generation isn't the only generation to practice unsafe driving habits. the hot rod years started in the late 40's, the muscle car era: all happened BEFORE the youngest generation was even born. and i might add, the number of fatalities per capita has dropped significantly, meaning its safer to drive now with the "techno-video game, glued-to-your-cell-phone generation" than at any other point in time. get some facts under your belt before you go spewing $hi+ all over the internet. here, i even got the link for you since you're too lazy to do it yourself.

Very interesting statistics. It appears 1937 was the worst year for automobile deaths by percentage (29 ten thousandths of 1%), but 1972 was the worst by total numbers (54,589). Also interesting, the number of deaths per mile traveled is the lowest it has ever been. Conclusion? Driving is safer than ever. Granted, distracted driving is always a bad idea no matter how safe vehicles are.

Year Deaths Population Percentage of Pop
1937 37,819 128,824,829 0.00029357
1972 54,589 209,896,021 0.00026008
2010 32,885 308,745,538 0.00010651
